EFT Tapping

We all experience various forms of trauma in our lives.  From day-to-day interactions that leave their mark on us to large event Traumas that we all recognize easily.  And the impact that trauma has on our lives is considerable.  EFT Tapping is effective at healing and resolving trauma, plain and simple.  And research supports its long-term, sustained effectiveness.

In fact, Harvard Medical School Psychiatrist Eric Leskowitz, MD, says it’s “the most powerful intervention I’ve encountered in 25 years of work.”

And world renowned trauma researcher Bessel van der Kolk, MD, has said, “I could not do my trauma work without Tapping.”

HOW DOES IT WORK?

EFT Tapping combines:

1) Imaginal Exposure
2) Acupressure
3) Somatic Activation
4) Amygdala/Prefrontal Cortex Rewiring & Deactivation
5) Information Processing & Reprocessing
6) Cognitive Restructuring
7) Memory Reconsolidation and
8) Eye Movement and Reprocessing.

I prefer to incorporate EFT Tapping into as much of our work as possible in order to provide you with as much relief as soon as possible.  EFT Tapping Intensives are also available for anyone wanting an “individualized workshop” approach to facilitate as much progress as possible in a half-day or full day format.

If you have any questions about the above, please feel free to call me at 770-313-7768.  I am very happy to answer whatever questions I can, and to redirect you to others if I cannot.

THE SCIENCE OF EFT

In a Randomized Controlled Trial of 50 Veterans diagnosed with PTSD, 86% of them no longer met criteria for this diagnosis after only 6 sessions with EFT.  Furthermore, participants sustained this result over 3 and 6 month checks.

And another study measured a dramatic reduction in participants’ Cortisol levels (24-50%) after Tapping.  Cortisol is a hormone that regulates stress in our bodies and contributes to the disease process.

And these are just two of many compelling results.  Therefore, I encourage you to read the science at AAMET International’s Research Page.  Using the drop-down menu, you can choose the topics that interest you most.

A whopping 98% of EFT studies thus far show statistically significant results.
