HYPNOSIS AND EFT (TAPPING)
Hypnosis is safe, easy and an effective tool to help meet many of the life challenges people face. Hypnosis has been proven to help people with addiction recovery, stop smoking, lose weight, reduce anxiety, improve performance in sports, and academics.
Studies show hypnosis to be highly effective in treating PTSD and Trauma.
EFT, the emotional freedom technique (Tapping) is based on concepts similar to acupuncture, in that there are energy points, meridians, throughout the body that when stimulated interrupt the emotional disturbances caused by a negative or traumatic event. This stimulation allows clients to focus on the event and resolve or reduce the associated anxiety or trauma.
