Las Vegas Massage And EFT Tapping In Las Vegas

Here's a quick post in regards to Las Vegas massage and EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and why they work together so well. And if I don't see you before the New Year, Happy New Year to you and your family and friends!

Myo-fascial tissue is fascinating. It actually disturbs me that we do not teach more people what massage therapists have learned over the past many years. I have learned that the muscles of the body want to be warm and supple. They want to be stretched often and relaxed constantly to relieve unhealthy levels of tension that build up in them during the course of daily events and movements. I am a busy professional and know this all too well. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as well as Las Vegas massage are a great combination for emotional and physical release.

As I look at my Las Vegas Massage clients experiencing chronic muscle pain, it seems that what occurs to me is a sort of muscular breakdown of a particular region of the body. The muscles simply contract and say “no more.” The muscles themselves have become hard like concrete and become painful all of the time. The worst areas were exquisitely painful when palpated and stroked; especially first time clients. This is why I often begin a Las Vegas massage session with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. (After the in-take form is complete as well as proper assessment of body AND mind.) This engages the CNS and calms the body.

It is important to me to realize that the knotted up muscles were not solely the reason for the chronic pain...I think about the central nervous system and look for ways (such as EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, meditation, breathing exercises,) clients can calm this from anxiety and tension. Ah, the life of a Las Vegas massage therapist! One of the most important elements in my client’s recovery from chronic muscle pain in Las Vegas, once we have worked through emotional attachments to physical pain with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, has been for me to teach clients a conceptual understanding of the science of trigger points and myo-fascial restriction. Understanding trigger points and why and when they caused pain was crucial for clients to manage and eliminate them. At some point they finally had to surrender to the fact that their condition was not one where they could just go to the doctor, be given a pill, and never had to think about it again. (To read further in regards to Trigger Point Therapy In Las Vegas, visit this page.)

The Las Vegas massage protocol and EFT Tapping in Las Vegas treatment I use often bumps up against psychological patterns that refuse to let go of guarding against imagined danger. The core of my treatment for chronic pain relief in Las Vegas is training my clients to profoundly relax their tense muscles. This means that they ‘un-defend themselves.’ This is WHY I use both Las Vegas massage and EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. It means that they allow themselves to be at ease, to feel good, and to let go of vigilance.

What’s often helpful is to facilitate a dialogue between the part of the client who wants to improve and the part that seems unable to move ahead. What often emerges from these dialogues is the fear of the unknown that is imagined if there is no more pain or dysfunction. This is why our treatment of Las Vegas massage and EFT Tapping in Las Vegas works so well. We work with the mind AND the body, getting through the fear of the unknown.

Until next time...

Official EFT Tapping In Las Vegas Webpage

OK, it's official. After hours of fretting, attempting to create an EFT Tapping in Las Vegas webpage, the basics are finally complete. The webpage hosting company who I use changed how we create webpages. Thus, I had to learn all the basics from scratch, once again.

So, if you visit our site here, EFT Tapping In Las Vegas, you'll begin to learn the basics in regards to what this EFT Tapping stuff really is all about. I have to admit, and I'll ramble on about this more, below, that I was seriously skeptical in regards to this protocol. I've had this EFT Tapping in Las Vegas material from the creator, Gary Craig, since around the year 2006. It just sat there. And sat there. I'd move all the information, Dvd's, etc., from one pile on my desk to another. It just wasn't the right time. Until...

I finally started to come to a realization in my mind. You see, I'm a 'meat and potato's' kind of massage therapist. What's that mean? Western medicine attitude for one. Although I've practiced Ki Aikido here in Las Vegas for many years, about 17 to be more precise, and our goal is mind-body coordination. For the life of me, I just couldn't, or perhaps I just wouldn't, relay and convey this knowing, this thought process, into my massage business.

Then, several years ago when I was really bored, I dug into the EFT Tapping in Las Vegas material once again. It made more sense to me. I finally started to 'get it.' Everything in my mind started coming together. The Ki Aikido training of mind and body began seeping into my massage work with clients. The books I've been reading such as A Headache In The Pelvis and Dr. Fulford's Touch Of Life with their relaxation protocols made sense. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas now seemed to work, at least in my mind, with everything I was doing; especially with clients.

At first, due to my separatist thinking, I was still 'grinding' on massage clients, and perhaps if I thought they needed some emotional assistance, I'd show them how to perform EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. I still didn't have the full picture in my mind, the understanding of how the mind and body are One, no two. I suppose you could say I'm a slow learner, not the sharpest tool in the shed, and you'd certainly be correct. I mean, after all these years of fiddling around with all this 'stuff,' I finally had the realization of combining it. It's one thing to know something; it's yet another to understand it.

Thus, as the years rolled by, I slowly began implementing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas with clients. This often trumped the actual massage therapy session. It also had me spending a lot more time with clients during the in-take process. I needed to ask a lot more question and truly learn to listen closely. Not just hear them, listen to them. If they are in chronic pain, are there emotions involved? Can EFT Tapping in Las Vegas assist them? In the majority of cases, the answer was a profound, YES! There's no harm in trying it anyway, so what the heck?

So, enough rambling for today. It's just that I love assisting others in as many ways as I can. A couple of weeks ago I also passed the test to become a Certified Personal Trainer. Now I have hands-on body manipulation with massage, movement therapy with personal training, and mind-body-relaxation with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. Who could ask for anything more?

EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on Facebook

Join us on our new Facebook fan page entitled, EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. I realize it's Christmas Day, so I hope you are having a very merry Christmas!

It may seem strange that some of us work on Christmas Day, yet, it's often the only time I have to get anything accomplished outside of caring for clients. Between Las Vegas massage clients, personal training clients and EFT Tapping in Las Vegas clients, I'm busy busy.

One topic I'd like to cover in this short blog post is the mind-body connection. I think we all realize this, yet often when health care professionals and clients spend so much of their time attempting to 'cure' the physical body, they forget to assist the mind as well. I find this extremely important, yet it's not easy. Hey, it took me 20 years to come to this conclusion and understand this.

In a blog post a couple of weeks ago entitled EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, I quoted a gentlemen who wrote about how 'pain is in the brain.' This has sparked a huge debate. Most health care providers (may) understand this, yet they still insist that pain is also located in the physical body as well, not just in the chemical and electrical synapses firing in the brain telling us we are in danger.

I agree. Yet, once again, the brain/mind aspect is often downplayed, secondary, to some 'physical pain' you 'feel' in some location of your body. This is why EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is so valuable; it involves both the mind and the body. Please understand that the people I'm most often dealing with, the healthcare professionals I interact with, are mostly 'physical' providers such as fellow massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, etc., not psychologists.

I respect these healthcare professionals a great deal, yet, most of them are still stuck in dealing with symptoms of the physical body. I know how this is, as I was the same way with my Las Vegas massage clients for the past 11 years. Yet, if I can change, so can others. I actually got one doctor on a social media site so pissed off he was practically frothing at the mouth. That's not good. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas WORKS, as do many other methods.

Well, it's time for me to go now and spend some time with relatives who have just arrived in time for an early Christmas dinner. If you enjoy what I'm writing here, whether you really understand it or not, please stay tuned as I'll continue to elaborate on these topics as well as the benefits of EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. If you disagree with me that's OK, feel free to comment on the posts in a respectful manner.

Ok, need to go. Once again, have a merry Christmas and I'll be posting more, soon.

Benefits of EFT Tapping In Las Vegas

Many people are skeptical of the principles that EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is based on, and it doesn’t help that it looks really silly while performing it. Yet, it works! I’ve been working with clients since 2004 with Las Vegas massage, and since 2006 with EFT tapping. With that said, please don’t take my word for it. Nor do I ask you to ‘believe’ in any of this. My suggestion is to call me up, make an appointment for a FREE session, and see for yourself if EFT Tapping works for you.

EFT has delivered a whole new way of releasing emotional traumatic memories. Even within the first few minutes after you learn it and try it, you are likely to find the intensity of your traumatic recollections rapidly dropping. There are many scientific studies of EFT tapping for depression, anxiety, chronic pain relief and other psychological and physiological issues. They show that people who use EFT Tapping in Las Vegas recover very quickly, often in just a few sessions.

As a Medical Massage Therapist In Las Vegas I work with many physiological (physical) aches and pains. Yet, from what I’m learning, most of these chronic aches and pains have a psychological and emotional component to them as well. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas has worked wonders, especially when combined with massage and the Mind-Body Awareness Relaxation protocol.

It’s a fact that for many of us, a lifetime of carrying the burden of trauma takes a toll on our bodies. When people use EFT for physical problems, they may release the emotional memories associated with the symptom. Once those memories don’t hurt anymore, the stress/emotional response is reduced, and the body has a chance to heal.

This is a blog that helps clients empower themselves in their own healing. With this site, clients learn how to reduce or eliminate their negative emotions and chronic pain. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is not a hocus-pocus solution. It is a program that can be adapted into one’s daily routine. I have witnessed firsthand how clients willing to change their behavior have been able to find healing.

Many clients and patients go from doctor to doctor, therapist to therapist, specialist to specialist, without improvement, often feeling abandoned. A majority of clients with chronic pain and emotional trauma do not respond to conventional therapies (antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs, massage, chiropractic, physical therapy, psychological counseling), leaving a huge void. We offer a therapeutic option with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas that can bring relief to many.

This blog will describe a pioneering method that empowers clients with chronic pain based in emotional issues to understand and help reduce their pain and symptoms. This blog on EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is for people affected by chronic emotional and physical pain and for family members who care about them; it is also for medical providers who work with these clients and patients.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas Style - What Is it?

One of the easiest-to-learn healing methods I have ever encountered is called EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique or meridian tapping. EFT Tapping is a form of energy healing; it is designed to resolve many physical and emotional problems by simply working with the body at certain energy points.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas style is a type of psychological acupuncture that employs tapping rather than needles. You simply tap with your fingertips on certain areas on the body known as meridians in order to stimulate them.

So how does EFT Tapping in Las Vegas work exactly? Developed in the 1990’s, EFT evolved from meridian-based therapies, such as acupuncture and acupressure. Both attribute disease and emotional dysfunction to disturbances in the energetic field. Energy is believed to flow through our bodies along meridians or pathways that connect to each other, and to our organs, much like an electrical circuit.

If we’re under stress of any sort – either emotional (anxiety, or example) or physical (a food intolerance) – then the energy meridian most affected will shut down or get blocked. The other connected meridians try to compensate in order to keep the energy flowing. But eventually, they get overloaded and blocked. The result is pain or other symptoms.

These problems often stem from negative emotions stored within the body. EFT Tapping Las Vegas style utilizes gentle tapping on the body, as tapping is believed to open energetic centers to release these emotions. According to proponents, EFT can help heal many conditions, including eating disorders, phobias, PTSD, chronic pain, anxiety disorders, and many serious physical illnesses. If EFT interests you, it’s best to locate a qualified practitioner such as myself to lead you through the process. You’ll learn where and how to tap, and how to employ breathing and affirmations as part of the therapy.

The science behind EFT tapping Las Vegas style and why it works so well on such a diverse range of health and wellness issues—everything from managing physical and emotional pain to erasing phobias to maintaining better relationships.

EFT tapping targets the root cause of health and wellness challenges by interrupting the body’s stress response quickly and effectively. As you will discover in this blog, EFT tapping Las Vegas style is a powerful tool for enabling health on multiple levels: mental, emotional, and physical. From depression, anxiety, and stress-related disorders like PTSD and fibromyalgia to physical pain and a lot, lot more, tapping is producing consistent and compelling results.

When combined with a healthy lifestyle, including a wholesome, plant-rich diet, regular physical exercise, and neutral emotions to support health at a systematic level, EFT tapping is a fast-acting, noninvasive way to proactively manage the stress that so often leaves our bodies vulnerable to disease.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas

EFT Tapping Las Vegas continues to provide results in a quick and efficient manner. Historically for most of our clients, it was very difficult in the past to alter and change their emotional experience and feelings. Many clients, like all of us, could spend years in visualization, contemplation and or meditation, attempting to cultivating inner peace. But that state of 'inner-peace awareness' is easily disturbed by the events of the average day. Life is fine and dandy sitting in meditation, yet what occurs when your boss starts yelling at you or your kids upset you? Inner-peace goes straight out the window! These techniques take many years to learn and perfect, which is fine, yet, it's why EFT Tapping Las Vegas works so well. It's quick, easy and painless.

As I'm a massage therapist and personal trainer (not a psychologist,) I work mostly with clients who have physical ailments. Yet, with that said, in over 10 years of private practice, I've yet to find a physical ailment that isn't tied to a mental emotional issue as well, and that's why in my humble opinion, EFT Tapping Las Vegas works so well. That’s not to say that physical ailments and disease are entirely psychological in origin. What it does indicate is that a lifetime of carrying the burden of trauma takes a toll on our bodies. When people use EFT Tapping Las Vegas for physical problems, they are releasing the emotional memories associated with the symptom. Once those memories don’t hurt anymore, the stress response is reduced, and the body has a chance to heal.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas has also been used with many of my Las Vegas massage clients for chronic muscle pain relief, for sports performance, school performance, and business performance. When the anxieties that claim a large part of our Las Vegas massage clients attention are removed, their full capacities come to bear on the task at hand. That’s why you’ll find so many stories of athletes and scholars performing better after EFT Tapping Las Vegas. There are also specialty books on these subjects, such as EFT for Sports Performance, EFT for Back Pain, EFT for PTSD, EFT for Weight Loss, etc.

As I commented on in the previous post in regards to the psychological aspect, measuring the intensity of your emotion associated with a traumatic memory, then pair your memory with a statement of self-acceptance, listed here, EFT Tapping In Las Vegas, the other stream of experience on which EFT Tapping Las Vegas draws from is Asian medicine, in the form of acupuncture points associated with energy meridians of the body.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas has come to learn that acupuncture has demonstrated efficacy for PTSD and psychological problems, as well as physical ones. Studies have shown that pressure on acupuncture points can be as effective as inserting needles, and scientists have also shown that real acupuncture points are more effective than inserting needles into non-acupoints. So EFT Tapping Las Vegas is sometimes called “acupuncture without needles,” even though it has as much historical basis in Western psychological science as Eastern medicine.

The two streams were brought together in the 1970's when an American psychologist, Roger Callahan, discovered that his patients could be cured of phobias in a single session. To this day, phobias are one of the easiest conditions for EFT Tapping Las Vegas to treat. Callahan’s system was simplified by Stanford-trained engineer Gary Craig, and gained widespread popularity. EFT Tapping Las Vegas has been validated as an evidence-based medicine approach in many studies, including randomized controlled trials that measure PTSD, pain, depression, anxiety, and cravings. EFT Tapping Las Vegas is part of a group of therapies called energy psychology, because they are believed to affect the body’s electromagnetic energy fields.

Ok, that's enough for today in regards to EFT Tapping Las Vegas. Today is Thanksgiving and I'm giving thanks in gratitude to all I know and love! To conclude, I think this method (EFT Tapping Las Vegas) has added quite an edge to my regular practices and in the meantime I have used EFT Tapping Las Vegas on myself and family members for variety of quick therapies from shoulder pain to headaches, nausea, and so on. This method is absolutely invaluable.

EFT Tapping In Las Vegas

I've been performing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas since 2006. I've not written much about it as I prefer to learn and then apply with clients. Yet, as I look to expand the Mind-Body Awareness & Healing Arts Center, I suppose it's a good idea to begin writing about what it is we do besides massage, personal training and life coaching.

EFT Tapping in Las Vegas has been found to be very helpful with eliminating emotional ties. As I'm also a Las Vegas massage therapist, I work with clients who are also suffering with a lot of pain in one part of their body or another. Thus, to begin with, I'd like to copy from another post, WITH permission, just a bit about pain & injury. Let's see if you can connect this post with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

"We used to believe (some people still do) pain and injury to be highly correlated and would utilize the measure of pain as an indicator of tissue damage. Unfortunately, as we begin to learn more about pain and injury, it is clear that pain is not an accurate indicator of injury nor damage. To understand this better, we have to understand a very important concept. So pay attention. :)

"Pain does not (technically) begin at the level of the tissues: While we once thought pain to originate at the level of the tissue (and that “pain” information was carried up to the brain), we now understand that these carriers, nociceptors, relay “danger” information to the brain for processing. Once the “danger” information reaches the brain, it is then up to the brain to decide whether these signals are dangerous enough to respond by producing an output of pain. So we don’t have pain receptors or ascending pain pathways as we commonly thought. Pain doesn’t begin until the brain determines it is needed. (Keep reading to see how EFT Tapping in Las Vegas relates.)

"It is crucial that we understand that this response is quite individualized. One may have a very serious injury and complain of little to no pain, while another may have a very minor injury and experience extreme pain. The degree of injury is not always related to the degree of pain. Hence they say, injury and pain are not related and ‘pain is in the brain’." Written by Anoop Balachandran and shared WITH permission. What else is conjured up in the brain? Emotion! This is how EFT Tapping in Las Vegas assists so many clients.

I'll write more in regards to Anoop's post in the future, but for now, I just wanted to present this as a new, evidence, science based approach. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as well as many other techniques (such as massage and movement therapy) are used here at the Mind-Body Awareness & Healing Arts Center for pain & injury.

So, the next logical question is, "What the heck is EFT Tapping in Las Vegas," as it's the title of this post.

EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is a very quick and simple method of reducing the intensity of traumatic memories. Our emotional growth has been shaped by them, and we may believe we’re destined to remain that way (in a stressed out state) for the rest of our lives.

EFT Tapping in Las Vegas has ushered in a whole new way of releasing emotional memories. Even the first few minutes after you try it, you are likely to find the intensity of your traumatic recollections rapidly dropping. There are many scientific and evidence based studies of EFT Tapping for depression, anxiety, stress and other psychological problems. They show that people who use EFT Tapping in Las Vegas recover very quickly, often in just a few sessions.

EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is easy to learn, and simple to apply. It’s so simple that the entire set of instructions fit on a single page. You simply measure the intensity of your emotion associated with a traumatic memory, then pair your memory with a statement of self-acceptance.

This pairing utilizes two very well-researched psychological techniques called exposure (remembering the trauma) and cognitive restructuring (self-acceptance). Then, you tap with your fingertips on a series of acupressure points on your face and body. (EFT Tapping in Las Vegas has often been labeled Acupuncture without needles.)

The EFT Tapping in Las Vegas sends a calming signal to your brain, telling it that you’re safe. So while before, the memory might send your body into a conditioned stress response, you’re now re-conditioning your brain with a positive association.

The signal of safety sent by your fingertips tells your brain’s stress machinery to disengage. So the conditioned association of the memory with the stress response is broken. Once that loop is broken, it usually stays broken. So later on, when you think of the memory, you no longer feel stressed. It’s that easy, and it takes just a minute or two to complete each set of tapping points with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

Thus, can you now see the connection between pain & injury as relating to your mind-body in regards to both how the brain works and using EFT Tapping in Las Vegas? If not, I'll do my best to clarify in future posts. This is enough writing for now, as this post is really just a marketing test of sorts :)

Take care, and we'll see each other again, soon!
