What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/ tapping) is a powerful, non invasive, easy to apply self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease and pain.

The approach uses parts of both Cognitive and Exposure Therapies. Simply stated, it is a combination of talk therapy and an emotional version of acupuncture where needles aren’t necessary. Instead, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips.

In clinical trials, EFT has shown it’s gift of rapidly and effectively reducing or eliminating the emotional discomfort of current events, memories or previous incidents that trigger emotional distress.

The body will often re-balance and naturally heal itself at an accelerated pace, when the distress has been reduced or eliminated.

In over 20 published clinical trials, EFT has proved effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and many other problems.*

EFT has produced remarkable results in relieving a number of emotional and physical conditions. – Sara illig

Here are the tapping points to help get you started:




EFT provides impressive results for most people but there is no guarantee that it will achieve your goals or be an entirely painless process.  It is not intended to diagnose, or provide medical advice of any nature or form, including treatment to cure any existing condition. Never discontinue prescription medications without consulting your physician or therapist.

While EFT has produced remarkable clinical results, it must still be considered to be in the experimental stage and thus the public must take complete responsibility for their use of it.

While I am not a licensed counselor, the service I provide is intended to educate and inspire you on  your personal journey toward balance, optimal health and a greater sense of joy in your life.
