Emotional Freedom Technique, often referred to as "EFT", is an approach designed
by Gary Craig for the purpose of achieving relatively immediate relief from anxiety
symptoms by tapping on specified acupressure points on the body.

A 2012 study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease found that
this protocol succeeded in decreasing levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in
salivary assays of participants by over 24%.

In 2017 it was approved by the United States Veterans Administration
as an intervention for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The process of this intervention would involve showing you how to use this
technique on yourself, and guiding you through its application according to the
nature of your anxiety and how it's affecting you.

I was trained in EFT and its protocols for phobias, stress, generalized anxiety,
compulsions, social anxiety, and acute and long-standing trauma.
