I have struggled with anxiety most of my life so I have always been open to alternatives to medication to lower my anxiety. I first learned about tapping at a networking breakfast about five years ago. It was completely foreign to me and I felt kind of silly doing. However, in a very short time, I could feel how much calmer it made me. I was sold. While I did not immediately make it part of my self-care routine (and I should have), I continued to learn more about EFT over the years.
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. It is a tool that can be used on your own or with a practitioner that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. Additional information about EFT can be found here. There is lots of fascinating research that has been published on EFT.
Last year, I decided to learn more about using EFT with others in order to help my daughter, who also struggles with anxiety. She and I tap regularly now and it helps her to feel calmer and recognize her emotions. I completed two levels of practitioner training and once I started practicing with others, there was no looking back. I have always been fascinated with the power of EFT but I am amazed every day at how much it can help people. Thus, I started the certification process to further improve my practitioner skills and share this awesome tool with others.
I now offer EFT as part of my business. I conduct the majority of sessions online, which is awesome as clients can do it from the comfort of their own home. For those who are not familiar with EFT, it might seem like an odd fit for my business. However, a lot of what I do is help women to feel secure and confident in their financial future. EFT helps to identify and release some of the emotions and/or fears that might be standing in the way. It is actually a very natural fit.
I was so incredibly humbled to receive this testimonial recently from one of my clients. Nadia in Chicago shared, "I thought I understood how EFT works and how to use this technique to help reach my financial goals, and then I met Leah. Wow! What a difference! Leah has profound personal and professional experience, and an innate ability to tune in into her clients' experience. Leah has truly taken me to the next level of my ability to manifest abundance."
While I cannot say that EFT has eliminated my anxiety, it has reduced it substantially and given me a tool to confidently manage it. I tap just about every day and can really feel the difference.
If you have never tried EFT and are not sure if it's for you, I welcome you to schedule some time to discuss. I always offer a no-cost 30-minute phone consultation.
