EFT® or Emotional Freedom Techniques® was created by Gary Craig in 1995. Based upon ancient Chinese wisdom of the body’s energy meridian system, we often refer to EFT as acupuncture without needles. Using two or more fingers, you simply tap on meridian ending points to calm your nervous system, reboot your fight or flight response and shift from states of anxiety and overthinking to a calm, clear minded and energetically balanced state.
EFT teaches us that the cause of ALL negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. Once you tap and talk through your feelings, the negative emotions, fears and limiting beliefs melt away clearing the way for feelings of hope, peace and your rejuvenated energy system. In this newly balanced state, you can easily tune in to your intuition to reframe the troublesome situation and embrace a new, more positive paradigm.
The beauty of EFT is that once you learn it, you can bring up any painful memory or a distressing thought and melt it away intentionally in a manner of minutes – not months or years!

Who can benefit from using EFT?
It’s 2 AM and you, or someone you love, wakes up in pain; sick to the stomach or with nightmares or anxiety. EFT® is THE best first aid kit! Within 10 minutes you can use EFT Tapping to restore some balance to the body and mind and even tap to help return to and stay asleep.
Your children come home from school amped up and anxious from all of the energies they took in at school. YOU can help them dissipate all of the negative energy while creating a lovely connection and opening doors to further communication and address their stress, fears, self-doubts and, yes, even their blocks to learning.
When your spouse or partner is in physical or emotional pain, YOU can be there to gently guide them through tapping to restore balance and to calm them inside and out while helping them think through the cause, reaction and meaning behind it.
Your mind keeps rehashing something from the past. That argument, that betrayal, that accident, injury, death of a loved one or medical diagnosis. The more you think about it, the worse you feel. You know that ruminating on pain or a problem is not helpful, but how can you shift your attention and begin to self-soothe and heal? EFT!
No matter what your challenge, the simple act of EFT Tapping quiets your mind and nervous system and allows you to begin thinking with greater clarity and peace.
If you can form a sentence expressing how you feel and feed yourself, you can learn to use EFT. And if you or someone you love cannot move their hands, you can tap for them with the same miraculous results.
We try it on everything!

Debbie had a phobia – fear of snakes. Hear what she had to say about her miraculous healing during an EFT Level 1 and Level 2 training class!
Here are some bullet points from Debbie’s testimonial:
- I had the blessing of going to one of Jan’s training classes.
- My boss, who is an MD, had heard of EFT and believed in EFT and wanted us to be trained.
- I was skeptical and went because it was a requirement.
- I went willing to learn to do a trade.
- What happened was a miracle for me.
- I had a snake phobia (couldn’t see them in a book on tv or in real life – there just aren’t enough words to describe the fear I had of snakes).
- During the class I made a comment about my fear of snakes and Jan said “Let’s address that!”
- My life was changed instantly.
- I keep saying I am going to send Jan a picture of me HOLDING a snake. I have been in a pet store and now I can stand surrounded by them. I can hold them.
- EFT can change everything!
