What is Energy Psychology?What is Energy Psychology?Energy Psychology provides simple methods for shifting brain patterns that lead to unwanted thoughts, feelings, and actions. Drawing from ancient healing traditions, it has been called "psychological acupuncture without the needles."

About the Home Base Program | Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program 2010 Run to Home Base 9K About the Home Base Program | Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program 2010 Run to Home Base 9K About the Home Base Program The Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program serves New England by identifying, motivating, and clinically treating wounded service members and veterans with combat stress and traumatic brain injury and their families. The Home Base Program serves the nation as a model for private-public collaborations as an educational resource about the invisible wounds of war that now effect an estimated 30 percent of those who served or are serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
