The Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) is an international nonprofit organization promoting "professional energy psychology and collaboration among practitioners, researchers and licensing bodies." Energy psychology is "a family of mind/body techniques that are clinically observed to consistently help with a wide range of psychological conditions. These interventions address the human vibrational matrix, which consists of three major interacting systems:

* Energy pathways (meridians and related acupoints)
* Energy centers (chakras)
* Human biofield (systems of energy that envelop the body)."
