Give a broader definition of EFT.

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique and is often referred to simply as “tapping”. To perform EFT, tapping is done on a sequence of acupressure points along the meridian lines used in Chinese medicine. This stimulates your brain to rewire and release blockages that may be held there. The result is relief, happiness, and profound effects on your physical and emotional health.

Is EFT medically accepted for insurance purposes?

Can EFT be harmful? Because I’m hurting enough already.

EFT will not harm you. The worst that can happen is nothing happens. And this is usually because you are not ready to work on that problem yet, and your subconscious is resisting. These are rare cases in which people tap and absolutely nothing happens, then or later. Other times, tapping on it later will produce the desired results.

How does EFT work with medical prescriptions?

EFT can work well with medical prescriptions. There are several ways tapping can even enhance your prescription medication.

Are there any potentials for side effects to EFT?


“EFT is something I now do often just to calm myself down and not get stressed out.  It works great in traffic, in a store, anywhere that I start to feel discomfort, I do a short, modified EFT session and I always feel better.

Thank you, Heather, for helping me deal with life’s stresses and taking a huge negative out of my life.

I highly recommend Heather and EFT sessions and you will learn how to deal with life difficulties.  Constant stress, physical or mental, is bad for us.” – Susan Struder
