quite rapid and effective.
Psychology is emerging as an excellent therapy for fears and phobias because in studies it is

practice that has been around for a couple of thousand years. It has the same
foundation or roots as acupuncture, except in this case there are no needles
used. You could call it emotional acupuncture - without the needles. Recent
