Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT (Emotion Freedom Technique) is an energy medicine technique used to treat and release negative emotions and problematic behavior. It is based on the principle that negative emotions and stressful and/or traumatic experiences cause a disruptive charge to the body’s energy system. It was discovered that tapping on the end points of the acupuncture meridians released the disturbance from the body’s energy field and nervous system thus restoring balance and calm. Simply put, if you pull the plug on the energetics of your issue/sabotaging behavior, what used to take years in therapy can now be transformed in a shorter period of time.   EFT Therapy Treatments are available at my downtown Seattle location or via an EFT Phone Treatment Session.

With my background in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, I became interested in the new energy therapies that have been evolving for the last decade. I trained in EFT with Gary Craig, its founder, and studied its cousins – TAT (Thought Field Therapy), TAPAs Acupressure Technique and other bio-energetic research. I applied EFT to my own personal issues as well as those of my patients. My results concurred with those of other therapists and physicians. EFT produces significant, profound and lasting change in a relatively short period of time.

The ramifications of this are exciting, especially since it can be applied to a wide variety of issues such as: addictions, phobias, abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, physical pain and disease, emotional pain, ADD, as well as areas of self improvement and attaining peak potential.
