EFT for Personal Use
This is an introductory EFT training open to anyone over the age of 16 years and is typically delivered on a single day. You can attend online or in person. Learn to apply EFT Tapping to 3 areas:
1. EFT for Stress and Worry
EFT has also been shown to lower cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone. Too much cortisol can result in lowered immune function and ultimately affect our physical health. EFT has been shown to down regulate genes associated with the stress response, and improve immune functioning. Learn how to tap for stress in the morning.
2. EFT for Physical Issues (Pain)
Pain is a very real thing, although it is difficult to objectively measure it. Research shows that being in a negative mood makes pain sensations in the body magnified. EFT has been explored for chronic pain and other physical issues, with great success. Learn how to tap on the physical sensations of pain for relief.
3. EFT for Sleep and Energy
EFT may be the new coffee during the afternoon slump after this module! Learn how tapping can assist with energy levels, and also sleep and insomnia. Many research trials have explored EFT for insomnia in a range of age groups and it is a very useful strategy for this area in life.
As a bonus, the day also overviews how to use EFT for Children. Children as young as 4-5 years can also tap! We also cover how to slightly adjust for our younger children, and resources such as handouts and cool ideas for young ones are discussed.
EFT Research: If you are interested in the science and evidence behind EFT and the growing body of research, then be assured it is included! The day's program contains information to the seminal work, and the best websites to explore.
