New discoveries now allow rapid freedom from the effects of trauma, anger, fears, phobias, depression, anxiety, stress and other emotional issues. Unwanted emotional pain from rape, accidents and war are often eliminated in one session, sometimes in a matter of minutes. While the process is not perfect, it often works where everything else fails.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is the doorway to this refreshing new approach. In essence, it is a psychological version of acupuncture except that needles aren't necessary. Instead, clients "tune in" to their emotional issue while stimulating stress relief points by tapping on them with their fingertips. This provides a meridian "balancing effect" that replaces emotional distress with a form of peace.

Other features are:
** The results are usually long lasting.
** The process is relatively gentle.
** Most clients can apply the techniques to themselves, although the use of a skilled therapist is recommended.
** It is inexpensive to learn and use.
** It often provides relief for physical pain, headaches and addictive cravings.

EFT has been proven clinically effective in the Veterans Administration with many of our Vietnam War Veterans. It has also assisted students with "learning blocks" and has provided noticeable gains in many performance areas (such as golf, sports, music and public speaking). Phobias and fears respond especially well, and it is even being applied to clear the "energy disturbance" of substance sensitivities (allergies). Those who meditate find that EFT allows them to "go deeper" and mental health professionals are reporting dramatic improvements in their clients' well being.

EFT does not do everything for everyone and is still in the experimental stage. However, the clinical results over the last 5 years have been remarkable. This technique can be used with individuals, couples and groups. For more information, see the EFT website at For a personal consultation, call or email Linda J. Wells, M.S.Ed., at 415.431.5621;
