David Feinstein , Robert Schwarz & Robin Bilazarian – Emotional Freedom Techniques and Tapping: Evidence-Based, Mind-Body Treatment Approach for Anxiety, Trauma & More
When your clients are struggling with anxiety, it can feel impossible to convince their brains that they’re safe when their racing heart, tense muscles, and tight stomach are all signaling danger.
To change the stubborn beliefs behind your client’s anxiety, sometimes we need to go beyond cognitive methods and the standard relaxation techniques… integrating a fresh set of skills to calm the sensations in the body and deal with negative thoughts and distressing emotions.
That’s the power of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), to work with both the rational side of the brain AND the emotional side of the brain to rapidly reduce distress.
Not sure about trying EFT Tapping? Some of the strongest proponents of the approach have admitted to being skeptical of its effectiveness at first… until they saw how truly transformative it was, both in their own lives and the lives of their clients.
Building on healing principles used over thousands of years, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) integrates mind-body interventions, proven to quickly reduce anxiety in over 100 recent research studies and 3 meta-analyses.
Through light tapping and gentle touch, your clients can learn to lower their anxiety levels dramatically in as little as 5 minutes and help resolve longstanding traumas and fears that are otherwise difficult to treat.
In this exclusive online video training course, you’ll learn EFT, step by step, through these nine comprehensive modules.
