Energy Psychology (EP) modalities, integrative methods that strategically involve accessing human energy for therapeutic purposes, enjoy a rich and diverse evidence base. As such, many attempts have been made to explain how they work. Explanations have primarily utilized a biological basis for explicating the mechanisms by which EP may function. These contributions are extremely valuable; however, none have been able to offer a fully satisfactory understanding of the efficacy of EP. The currently accepted theoretical model is not robust enough to explain a number of EP effects, and acupoint stimulation remains a confounding factor even though research shows it is an essential component in predominant EP modalities. In many professional EP trainings, negative emotions are said to be caused by a block in the meridian system, so energy-based theory is invoked but not well explained.
