This workshop is for EVERYONE! No experience necessary!

“EFT is a simple, powerful process that can profoundly
influence gene activity, health, and behavior.”

— Bruce Lipton, PhD

EFT, “Emotional Freedom Techniques” (also called “Tapping”), is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. It affects specific meridian lines based on ancient Chinese holistic healing traditions. EFT is drugless, noninvasive, requires no expensive equipment, and helps to establish a healthy state of balance. As a result of its success, EFT is spreading quickly among the holistic healing community.

Sometimes described as “acupuncture without needles,” clinical trials have shown that EFT/tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, combined with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on twelve acupuncture points. Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and many other problems.


Through lecture, examples, and experiential learning—including active hands-on participation—you’ll acquire real, readily applicable, and practical skills to improve your life and the life of your loved ones.

EFT training is open to all levels, beginner to advanced, as well as practitioners of other types of energy work and healing therapies. You will see personal shifts during the workshop and leave the workshop with the confidence and ability to use the technique on your own.

An energy medicine healing modality, EFT is endorsed by Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Donna Eden, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Norm Shealy, and
many others.


During this intensive, experiential training, you will:

  • Gain a new understanding of the mind/body connection and how your thoughts and emotions affect your body
  • Become confident using EFT for yourself and others
  • Learn how to release stress, emotional hurts, fears, grief, and trauma
  • Understand how EFT can help reduce cravings and alleviate addictions and negative habits
  • Learn to use EFT to address emotional contributors to physical discomfort and pain
