expert : Fred Gallo PhD
by Mariana Bozesan
Like many of the amazing sages whose work is featured on this site, I first encountered the work of Dr. Fred Gallo at a Tony Robbins event. Dr. Gallo was one of Tony’s featured guest speakers at a Life Mastery seminar in Fiji, in the South Pacific. There, Dr. Gallo introduced us to a fascinating new branch of psychology which he has co-invented. It is called energy psychology and combines Eastern and Western healing techniques to promote physical, emotional and mental health as well as positive lifestyle changes.
At the time, I had no idea that Dr. Gallo was one of the founding fathers of the entire field of energy psychology. I only knew that it was the first time I’d ever heard a classically trained psychologist talk about Eastern healing systems like kinesiology and acupressure. And not only was he talking about them, he was demonstrating how they could be used to promote rapid progress in therapy by transforming deep-seated behavioral patterns. At that point, Dr. Gallo inquired as to whether there was anyone in the audience who was dealing with a health related problem at that very moment, and asked if they might volunteer for a demonstration. A woman with a headache raised her hand, and we all watched closely as she performed a series of light taps on various points of her own head, neck and arms under his supervision. Afterward, the woman reported that her headache had not only improved, but had completely disappeared. Dr. Gallo showed us how simple tapping could be used to treat everything from food cravings to depression, and I found myself wanting to learn more about his techniques.
Almost two years later, I’m thrilled to report that not only are the techniques effective, but are being offered here to the Sageera community at large. These techniques bring about quick, powerful changes in negative emotions, thoughts and behavior patterns and are particularly useful when traditional therapy approaches are not working. Best of all: they are fast, simple and accessible to everyone—unlike traditional psychotherapy which is slow, complicated and often prohibitively expensive.
Though I already mentioned that I stumbled upon Dr. Gallo’s work in the same way I encountered many of the other sages on this site, one other similarity I want to emphasize is that he is an incredibly caring and loving human being. There are all sorts of people doing extraordinary work in the world, but in my experience it’s only the truly caring, heart-driven practitioners who are best equipped to truly help humanity in our struggles. Dr. Fred Gallo is just such a person who combines wisdom with compassion to create new opportunities for profound positive changes in our day-to-day lives, including permanent weight management and healing.
