It is important for me to stand in the highest of integrity which meant I needed to train with the BEST of the BEST.

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - August 2015 - Hollyhock Resort, Cortes Island, BC
presented by Alina Frank and Craig Weiner, DC -Tapping or EFT…Emotional Freedom Technique is a form
of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional accupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem - whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. and voice positive affirmations. This works to clear the short-circuit, emotional block from your body's bio-energy system, thus restoring your mind and body's balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease. Its worldwide use is skyrocketing and supporters include Dr. Bruce Lipton, PhD., and Deepak Chopra, MD - copy write eft mercola.com
