What is ERT?

Emotional Release Therapy is a system of allergy desensitization that was developed by Dr. Darvish. Acupressure points using needle-free acupuncture or chiropractic spinal manipulating devices are activated along with spinal manipulation to clear individuals from emotional blockages and disturbances. Often depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, chronic abdominal pain and many other symptoms resolve once the emotions are cleared.

How does it work?

ERT is based on the concepts of Oriental medicine and acupuncture as well as chiropractic or naturopathic spinal manipulation theories. The brain provides warnings to the body whenever blockages occur within the nervous system’s electrical pathways, meridians, or the spine and spinal cord. These warnings include various physical, physiological and psychological discomforts such as fatigue, pain, inflammation, fever, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, etc.

The stimulation of acupuncture points and manipulation have been known to unblock the nervous system impulses and meridians, respectively, allowing the nerves to signal cells and organs more efficiently, effectively, and in harmony. When an image, or memory of a person, place or situation is thought of mentally, a signal is produced in the brain. The signal may trigger positive or negative emotions depending on the chemicals being released and the intensity of the trauma associated to that memory. Using ERT to trigger specific acupuncture/acupressure points along with spinal manipulation while thinking of the memory resets the chemical release in the brain. The result is the disappearance of the negative emotion linked to that situation or memory.

Why does ERT work?

Often, emotional blockages are at the root of physical disease and dysfunction, toxicity, and infections. Many conditions including chronic infections are often related to a concurrent emotional trauma.

Emotional blockages, resulting from trauma or significant stressors, can cause physical symptoms through brain signaling and electrical pathways as well as cause congestion of Qi in the acupuncture meridians. When the electrical impulse and the meridian is corrected and unblocked, the emotional block resolves leading to balanced functioning of the immune system, the nervous system, and organ functions. The chronic conditions often resolve, on their own as a result.

How are acupuncture points stimulated?

Acupuncture points can be stimulated using acupressure, acupuncture, needle-free acupuncture or cold laser.

How effective is ERT?

ERT is extremely effective in patients who do not have biochemical imbalances or metal toxicities in the brain. These imbalances often need to be corrected first before ERT is completely effective.

Can ERT be used for wellness as well as for emotions?

ERT is used to treat symptoms and conditions but also for wellness. ERT can be used to create positive thoughts generally, to eliminate fears that may be in the way of transforming aspirations into action and for general sensation of wellness. Many who previously felt “stuck” in their situation are suddenly after ERT, transforming. The transformation leads them to becoming new business owners, finding new relationships, and accomplishing tasks and ideals they never thought possible.

Who can have ERT?

Any one over the age of 5 can have ERT. Those with osteoporosis or spinal fractures must inform their physician so that the treatment can be done gently.

How often do I have ERT?

ERT is performed initially 1-2 times per week depending on the severity of your condition. The number of treatments depends on the number of layers of trauma related emotions needing to be resolved. Several layers of emotions may be treated in one visit. Once the significant emotional traumas are cleared, an occasional maintenance treatment may be needed if new traumas present themselves.

Is ERT safe?

ERT is very safe. It is completely non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, and non-invasive. There is no pain involved and no discomfort.

Any particular preparations required for an ERT session?

You must avoid showering, exercise, massage, spinal manipulation or acupuncture after the treatment for 8 hours on the day of the session.
