Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/ tapping) is a powerful, drug free, non invasive, easy to apply self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease and physical pain.
The approach uses parts of both Cognitive Behavior and Exposure therapies. Simply stated, it is a combination of talk therapy and an emotional version of acupuncture where needles aren’t necessary. Instead, while talking, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips; percussion transmits a signal though the energy body.
Clinical trials of EFT have shown its’ gift of rapidly and effectively reducing or eliminating physical pain, the emotional discomfort of current events, memories, traumas and triggers from previous incidents that cause emotional distress. This can also be used for imagined events as in with stress disorders and constant worry or anxiety. The body often also releasees its’ pain cycle and re-balances naturally; it heals 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.*

Tapping Into a Beautiful Life is a group format offered to help introduce you to tapping and other energy medicine techniques.
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.
