This weekend’s breaking information in issues of popular culture and royal life zoomed in on The Duke of Sussex look on Apple TV Docu Sequence, The Me You Can’t See. Within the present, viewers obtained a entrance row seat to his a remedy and psychological well being journey. Inside hours from its premiere, information feeds have been flooded with headlines like, “Prince Harry Faucets His Trauma Away.”
I first heard about faucet remedy by means of my bio-hacking guru, Eli Abela on the UNLTD Bio Hacking Restoration Wellness Heart. “It is vitally efficient, particularly for individuals who endure from anxiousness or trauma,” she defined. “By tapping, you entry your physique’s vitality and stimulate your meridian factors.” It has since then been on my listing of wellness and therapeutic modalities to strive. However then the pandemic struck.
A current Zoom session with Paul Emery, facilitated by Stability Well being, ticked this field off. The holistic wellness middle based mostly in Hong Kong, identified for providing pure therapeutic alternate options for thoughts and physique was holding house for a collection of webinars with the famend therapist. Aside from tapping remedy, his technique revealed different comparable or complimentary modalities. A greatest promoting writer, therapist to the celebrities, royals and style icons, Paul has been working towards since 1991. That he had helped within the wellness journey of supermodel Kate Moss and different style editors at Harper’s Bazaar additional piqued curiosity.
QEPR IN A NUTSHELL
With no expertise or formal training in psychology or remedy, I had zero expectations strolling into the session. All I knew was that QEPR or Quantum Emotional and Physical Release technique combines tapping, gentle hypnosis and a way referred to as “Havening” into the combo. Paul begins, “It’s a energy mix of the world’s handiest thoughts and physique strategies… Briefly talking, the strategies I exploit in QEPR quickly cut back emotions and calm the thoughts by means of optimistic chemical adjustments which are induced throughout the mind. These adjustments are led to by means of both tapping on very particular, highly effective higher physique acupressure factors. Or by gently stroking the arms, face or arms alongside particular distraction strategies” These seemingly easy acts or contact or stroke, lowers the physique’s manufacturing of the stress hormone, Cortisol. It additionally elevates our Seratonin ranges.
TOUCH VERSUS TALK
Paul’s method emphasizes the therapeutic energy of contact. “It’s thought of by many to be the oldest drugs on this planet. Consider the instinctual reassuring contact that signifies security and safety to a new child baby by its mom, the comforting hug or rub of a shoulder… or the unconscious self-soothing rub after we’re anxious or have been injured,” he says.
Periods with Paul start with an intensive dialogue of what points or considerations a shopper might want to handle or handle. “In contrast to conventional discuss remedy and evaluation, QEPR’s outcomes come about moderately quickly. I’m extra excited by focusing on and eliminating the sentiments created by the reminiscences or ideas, moderately than analyze and dig into the explanations behind it,” he explains. The thought is to discover ways to overcome and clear feelings. Typically instances, feelings are what carries us away and floods us with stress, worry, anxiousness and trauma.
“On account of all of the developments in psychology, it merely isn’t often essential as of late to pull up the whole lot from the previous and speak about it over and over, which in itself can improve stress and anxiousness within the affected person can it not,” states Paul. As an alternative, his technique focuses extra on nipping the problem within the bud. Throughout our session he says, “We are going to work on getting over the overwhelming unhappiness, grief, trauma or stress.”

Contact remedy or QEPR are therapies accessible and helpful not solely to royals, or supermodels. Paul emphasizes, “QEPR is helpful to anybody who’s presently affected by stress, fear, phobias, trauma, despair or anger. In any case, who doesn’t need to let go of one thing that bothers them and really feel higher and extra optimistic?”
In a time of pandemic, repeated lockdowns, layoffs and worry slightly remedy can go a great distance. Paul shares, “Though folks come to me personally for assist, assist and steering, there’s something they will attempt to do themselves at dwelling to turn out to be extra calm, peaceable and relaxed.” He recommends the Havening Approach, which helps cut back stress and anxiousness and trauma. It’s based mostly on neuroscience and makes use of soothing, mild strokes on arms, face or arms to provide calming Delta Waves. “These strokes, alongside particular calming visualizations and auditory distractions considerably reduces and usually, utterly eliminates a selected undesirable emotion.”
