Five Short Pointers Using EFT Tapping and Medical Massage

Here is a list of five short pointers I found (somewhere) and figured I’d post them here on our blog, as they seem relevant to EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and Medical Massage Las Vegas style. You can use these pointers for just about anything and everything in your daily life if you really think about it.

Avoiding

Whatever you avoid, somebody or something else has to pick up. Emotions are energy in motion. If you don't experience them, then the energy either goes into your body and is stored there or it goes out into the world. Why would you make others experience what you, yourself, are avoiding? (Author’s note: Avoiding is one of the biggest opportunities with EFT Tapping.) Avoided and unresolved issues are stored in the subconscious (and the physical body, IMHO) and we have to tackle these issues directly if we want resolution. Medical Massage Las Vegas style (for your physical body) can assist with this as well.

Stagnation

When energy is blocked or can't move, it stagnates. In your body, the restricted energy goes into adjacent muscles and organs and causes illness. In your personality, restricted energy flows into the patterns that you are least aware of and they run. In groups, restricted energy flows into the people whose attention is weakest and they are flooded. When energy stagnates, change the configuration or pay the consequences. This is where Medical Massage Las Vegas style really comes into play. I work your physical body with massage and work your mind and energy body with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

Momentum

Consistent EFT Tapping practice builds momentum. Momentum doesn't just go away. It has to go somewhere. When attention is not present, momentum flows into old patterns and powers them. The more you practice EFT Tapping, the longer you practice, the more important attention becomes. There are no vacations when working out unresolved issues.

Rhythm

Respect the rhythms of practice. When you are tense and on edge in your EFT Tapping practice, just rest. When you are relaxed and open, push deep into the issue you wish to resolve. Glass doesn't bend; it breaks. Water doesn't move until you open a channel. Once again, Medical Massage Las Vegas style ‘opens the channel’ with your physical body and tapping works on the mind and energy body. Do you now see the mind-body connection?

Old ways (Habbits)

Once you see through a pattern using the EFT Tapping techniques, once you see what you've been doing, thinking, behaving, you can't go back. Ignorance may have been bliss, but you aren't there anymore. This means you can’t use your old excuses anymore, or use your old patterns and behaviors as a crutch anymore. Thus, you need to be prepared to live your (new) life without the old thoughts, actions and beliefs.

Hopefully this short blog post will entice you to begin or to continue on with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as well as your Medical Massage Las Vegas style. It’s a marvelous mind and body healing technique, yet it’s not just theory. You actually have to DO it! If you don’t know where to begin, contact me. This information is provided below. Enjoy your weekend, I know I will.

EFT Tapping In Las Vegas With Energy Work

Concerning EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, just like most anything else, there is body action of some kind. Of course that has to be. I must raise my arms and place my hands and fingers on the client’s face and body to tap on the meridian points while I teach the client how to do it themselves. But what is my body action an expression of? That's the question.

Is it an expression of my own small mind, trying to do something? Or is it an expression of the deeper sense of unity? Is it creating goodness out of badness, when a client is stressed out, or in a weakened condition, or injured? Do I think that there is something wrong, and I need to fix it?

This is seeing only the relative world. This is seeing only chaos, where in fact there is perfect order. If I don't see the order, then the order does not influence the client using EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, massage, or anything else.

The client cannot see the order, balance, harmonious universe, because of their temporary condition of stress, anxiety, physical pain, etc. If I don't see perfection, then the client also doesn't see that.

When someone feels pain, there is attachment to that area of the mind/body. So one might think that, if you are attached, in some sense your mind is strong there. But it is just very stuck there.

Attachment is weakness. If my mind is strong, it is free and not stuck. Mind is weak there in that sore place or injured place, so if I touch the client using EFT Tapping in Las Vegas there in that sore or injured place with a free mind, then I can release the attachment.

So the nature of what transpires between us, the client and me, the quality or flavor of what transpires between us, carries the quality, flavor, or taste of the source of that. If it comes from my small mind, then it carries that flavor; that characteristic. It is not that it is nothing, in this case, but it's limited. It's not limitless. It is not infinite. It's finite.

So what is the point of all that?

It is very important for me, and clients, to begin to truly understand how it is that energy pervades everything. It is everything there is. So if I think, "I am going to move energy from me to you", or attempt to channel or move energy from Heaven or God or whatever to you, this is limited thinking and a bit of a mistake.

Because how can that happen? It's already there.

Attitude Adjustment

This post on our EFT Tapping in Las Vegas blog is entitled ‘attitude adjustment’ because over the past couple of weeks I’ve seen a lot of attitudes that need adjusting. I’m not talking (just) clients, but fellow health and wellness professionals also. (Including myself at times. Chuckles.)

What am I referring to? Well, to begin with, beliefs. We all have them, yet how entrenched in them are we? Here are just a couple of examples. Further below I’ll explain how this ties in with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

I’ve had clients come in with their own diagnosis (from some website) and have determined that they need trigger point therapy. They find my page and schedule an appointment. I can determine rather quickly if trigger points are present, and if not, I don’t perform trigger point therapy. Yet, they still ‘believe’ they have trigger points and want me to continue on. Sorry sorry, love me love me, that’s not how I work. Most understand this, yet there’s always a few who think differently (and that’s OK.) This is especially true of EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as most people have no idea that the mind/body are One, and the mind runs the body. (That’s OK also.)

Perhaps a better example is on a Facebook group of fellow massage therapists. I posted a question in regards to ‘earthing’ or ‘grounding’ sheets and such, asking if any other therapists used them, and if so, if they could see results with the clients. I (of course) got a couple ‘poo-poo’ replies that this is ‘woo’ therapy, etc., etc. What’s more concerning about their replies is that I provided a link to science and evidence based studies that determine that this isn’t ‘woo’ therapy (such as EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, Grounding or Earthing or Therapeutic Clay applied to the body) and if they want more information on it to read the studies provided. No response. Oh well.

The issue with all of this isn’t that I ask clients and or fellow practitioners to ‘believe’ as I do, as with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. What I’m asking for is an open mind in an attempt to assist clients by any means possible, even if these means are outside their ‘belief zone.’ (A few of the replies from fellow therapists included a comment such as, “I’m a bodyworker and that’s all I do.” I can almost hear the grunting and knuckle-dragging from here.) Not only that, but why is there a need to criticize something you don’t even know anything about?

Do I know if all or some of these therapies work? No, I don’t. I do my best with what I’ve learned how to perform. Yet, if I can’t determine if you have trigger points, or determine if being grounded on my table works or EFT Tapping in Las Vegas works, and decide to try those methods or something else (with no cost to the client,) does it sound like such a bad idea? The clients I work with don’t think so. Almost all appreciate the extra effort.

Another huge topic now-a-days is the placebo effect, especially with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. I’ve already written about that in another blog post so I won’t belabor the topic. I’ll suffice it to say that if you, or someone you know, is suffering with chronic pain, you or them could care less if the results (getting out of pain) are placebo or not. Yes or no? I’ve yet to have one client (with which I’ve had thousands over the past twelve years) tell me or complain to me that they are now out of pain and it’s all in the mind, and that is not sufficient. Laughing. Sorry, that’s funny to me. If it's not funny to you, I guess you've not experienced chronic pain in a debilitating manner.

The example above occurs all the time with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and I’ve never had a client complain that their pain is gone, yet it was some form of ‘mind trick.’ (This is because I also explain the mind/body connection.)

Ok, let’s get to the real topics at hand, which are beliefs. To begin, I’m going to quote one of my Aikido Sensei’s in regards to a few questions I asked him many years ago. His replies had a profound impact on me and it’s why I’m using it below. It’s also why I resumed my EFT Tapping in Las Vegas techniques.

Here is the question I asked him: “Do you believe we have a purpose in life?" (Just about any question would do as long as the words ‘believe’ or ‘belief’ are in them.) His reply is listed here.

Sensei’s reply: “I don't ‘believe that we do, and I don't ‘believe’ that we don't have a purpose. There is a big difference between the word ‘belief’ and the word ‘faith.’ When I believe something to be so, then I tend to see everything as if it backs up that belief, and distrust or reject anything that clearly doesn't support that belief. In other words, belief is narrowing down, or limiting, of that which can be experienced ‘as it is.’”

“Whereas if I have faith, there doesn't need to be any object of that faith. Faith is an opening, an acceptance, and it provides an ability to be with whatever arises in confidence. So belief is quite limiting and therefore somewhat dangerous, while faith is freeing.”

“So, now let's return to the important question: “How will this help me in my practice to know this? “What is my practice?”

“My practice is to be completely present in this moment and to experience whatever arises fully. And that's it. There is nothing more, because everything else is imagined or constructed. We have sensation, we have emotion, and we have thought. All three of these arise, often simultaneously, and we invariably take them to be fact, while actually, they are only the movement of energy.”

Sensei writes further, yet I’ll leave it at that. I could probably leave out the last two paragraphs as well, as I’m looking specifically at how he defines ‘belief’ and ‘faith,’ yet I enjoy them so much I included them.

Point being, can you see the difference between belief and faith? If you are an evidence or science person you may disregard this. Yet, if so, I would ask you, “Didn’t you have faith in forming your hypothesis (as defined above) prior to determining the evidence or lack thereof?”

I really don’t know as I’m not a scientist, nor do I know any personally, and so much evidence is tainted to the viewpoint of the agenda being pushed by the researcher or the money that is funding the research that it’s questionable just based on those assumptions (which I see a lot of).

To wrap this up, I suppose I can say that what I’m looking for in anyone is just a bit more faith, an opening up of the mind to at least try different therapies; especially if it’s not costing you any (more) money to try it. Yes, I perform what clients ask me to do, and I actually invite discussion with clients in regards to what they want to do. Most clients I see want to eliminate pain, regardless of the technique used.

This may seem like I’m complaining here, (which I’m sure I am,) yet I have my preferences as well. I enjoy people with open minds. Levels of education or experience are not nearly as important as attitudes; at least for me. With EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, after it’s explained, often gets a lot of funny looks from clients. That’s OK. Guess what? I’m not getting the funny looks or complaints after they are out of pain, and that’s really what I’m striving for.

Aspects And EFT Tapping

Now that we have moved into our new location, EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is in full swing. Here’s our address to our physical location one more time. This is also the location of my Summerlin massage business.

Sun City Summerlin Las Vegas
9330 Sun City Boulevard
Las Vegas, Nevada 89134
(702) 203-5670

The topic of this post is ‘aspects’ and the different forms which arise while we are performing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. I’m going to be using one of my clients as an example, one I have used before. This client and I have worked together for over two years now, mostly performing just Summerlin massage. Only in the past six months have I introduced EFT Tapping in Las Vegas to him.

What is an aspect? An aspect could be a totally un-related subject or topic that one needs to perform tapping on that creeps into our mind while tapping. Yet, that’s not what I’m getting at, here. What I’m getting at is another issue that’s related to the larger issue one is performing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on. An example in regards to our physical body would be, if we are performing a bench press. The main muscle doing the work is the pec major. Yet, the supplemental muscles that assist are the front deltoid and the triceps. Thus, the ‘aspects’ of this movement are the front deltoid and triceps; not the prime mover. A psychological example used here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas would be as follows: You are performing tapping on the issue of quitting smoking. A supplementary aspect of this may be the thoughts that arise while tapping in regards to the enjoyment of lighting up the cigarette. Or, that you get to sneak out back for five minutes to smoke the cigarette.

Now that we have an idea of what ‘aspects’ are, let me continue on in regards to EFT Tapping in Las Vegas with the client. In a previous post I discussed the death of his wife and how we tapped through that. That’s coming along quite nicely, yet, think of all the aspects associated with losing a loved one. The aspects we worked on today with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas was in regards to this clients four daughters. Although all four are grown, they vary in age from early thirties to their forties, losing their mother was hard on them. It’s also very hard on the client, as he now feels completely responsible for all four daughters.

To be more specific in regards to the aspects we worked on with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas was the clients feeling of guilt for allowing his wife to pass away, and, now being the sole parent and solely responsible to the four daughters. This was a long two hour session. We first performed EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on these aspects for about an hour, then we spent the second hour performing Summerlin massage. (I was hoping the tapping would relax his physical body, first.)

What was most interesting during this session was the actual physical Summerlin massage. The client was still tense, as he always is, and I decided to perform massage and EFT Tapping in Las Vegas with him simultaneously. I’ve been performing Summerlin massage for many years, thus I can sense and know when a client is constricted and tense. So, I had to communicate a great deal with my client; this wasn’t a ‘lay there and get rubbed’ form of massage.

Some areas of his body were very relaxed, mostly his lower extremities, yet his arms, neck and head were still tense. (The client is a big thinker, not a big physical movement kind of guy. Thinkers seem to always have issues with their head, neck, shoulders and arms.) The relaxed areas of his body were massaged, yet the tense areas I verbally communicated with him and massaged him at the same time. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas was performed with him on the tight areas, such as while massaging him I’d ask him what he’s thinking about, he would tell me, and then I’d create a set-up statement and we’d massage (as opposed to performing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on the meridian points) and verbally go through the set up statement. Listed below are just a couple of the set-up statements:

“Even though I feel guilty for Xxxx dying, and I’m holding this guilt in my shoulders, I deeply and completely accept myself.”

“Even though I’m now a single parent and take on all the responsibility of being the single parent to my daughters, I deeply and completely accept myself.”

“Even though I’m holding all this tension and stress in my neck and shoulders, I forgive myself completely for Xxxx's death.”

I had many others yet can’t recall them at this time. It may sound corny to say that I ‘wing-it’ with clients, yet that’s exactly what I do here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. Why? Because each session is personal to the individual and their unique situation. This isn’t something we can write a script for, especially when we start getting down to specific aspects of each issue. It’s also why EFT Tapping in Las Vegas works so well.

Thus, the client made some good progress. I was attempting to assist him in allowing his mind and body to coordinate. For the client to sense the tension in parts of his body (through my hands and Summerlin massage) and how it’s tied to his mind (using EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.) To just let go. It’s like attempting to fall asleep. We can’t make ourselves sleep; we not-do, and just allow.

Ok, this is getting long, so I’ll end this post here. The more I write about EFT Tapping in Las Vegas the more difficult I find to do so. It’s to be performed and then perhaps we can discuss the results. Discussing or writing about the ‘how’ is a tough row to hoe.

Recapping And Tapping Protocol

I’m going to take a break from writing about our relaxation protocols in this blog post and cover another topic which everyone seems to encounter here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. This topic is about the overwhelming number of thoughts which may occur to us in regards to the seemingly endless list of negative events, as well as all of the ‘aspects’ surrounding a certain event or anything else we are attempting to ‘clear’ with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this which I have encountered from several different teachers and goes by many different names. Its value here is to systematically eliminate every specific event in your life that causes physical pain, anxiety, addictions, or limits of any kind. The name I’m going to use to describe this ‘complete life clearing’ comes from the author Carlos Castaneda and is called Recapitulation. He states:

“Recapitulation consists of recollecting one's life down to the most insignificant detail. The first stage is a brief recounting of all the incidents in our lives that in an obvious manner stand out for examination. The second stage is a more detailed recollection and theoretically could extend to the moment of birth.”

Here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas we are not going to take it that far…to recollect each moment of our lives all the way back to our birth. What we do want to perform, if we want to clear out all the junk in our lives, is to perform EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on everything we can recall that made some form of a negative impression on us.

Thus, we will need a system or protocol for this, and this system is detailed out below. As I like to keep things simple, I’ll label this the Recapping and Tapping Protocol. Without further ado, here are the details.

The Recapping and Tapping Protocol is not just a way to ‘feel a little more peaceful.’ Properly understood and put into practice, this technique should be the healing centerpiece of your life. In essence, the Recapping and Tapping Protocol involves making a list of every bothersome specific event in your life and systematically performing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas to clear them out of existence. This won't take as long as you think.

By diligently doing this you can pull out every negative tree from your emotional forest and thus eliminate major causes of your emotional and physical ailments. This, of course, propels you toward living a positive, productive life.

Here are some uses for the Recapping and Tapping Protocol we provide as examples here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

1. Performed as ‘homework’ between EFT Tapping in Las Vegas sessions with us at our location. This is certain to accelerate and deepen the healing process.

2. Used as a daily procedure to clear out a lifetime of accumulated emotional debris. This will enhance self- image, reduce self-doubt and provide a profound sense of freedom.

3. As a means to eliminate a major contributor (if not the sole cause) of a serious disease. Somewhere within your specific events are those angers, fears and traumas that are manifesting as disease. By addressing them all, you will likely cover those responsible for the disease.

4. Performed as a useful substitute for finding core issues. If you neutralize all the specific issues you will have automatically included core issues.

5. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as a means for consistent relaxation.

6. To become an example to others as to what is possible.

This simple concept of Recapping and Tapping should shift the entire awareness of your being. Is this a bold statement? Yes, it is. Begin performing the protocol as described below and see for yourself. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and the results achieved are stunningly amazing.

Please keep this key phrase in mind: Most of our emotional and physical problems are caused (or contributed to) by our unresolved specific events, that vast majority of which can be easily handled by EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

How obvious! Experienced practitioners of EFT Tapping in Las Vegas are well aware of EFT tapping and the ability to cleanly wipe the negative specific events off of our mental walls. This is the area wherein our highest success ratios appear. To date, however, we have focused our efforts on those negative specific events that underlie a given ailment such as a phobia, headache, chronic physical pain, or traumatic incident. This is good, very good, and we should continue doing so. On the other hand, why not use EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on ALL the other specific events that are behind our more generalized (but VERY important) issues such as these listed below:

Self-image
Anxiety
Depression Persistent insomnia
Addictions
Compulsions
Feelings of abandonment

As you eliminate the emotional baggage from your specific events you will, of course, have less and less internal conflict for your system to deal with. Less internal conflict translates into a higher level of personal peace and less emotional and physical suffering.

For many, this Recapping and Tapping procedure will likely result in the complete cessation of lifelong issues that other methods have not touched. How's that for peace in a paragraph? Once again, EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and the results it produces are amazing!

The same applies to physical ailments as well. I'm talking here about everything from headaches, breathing difficulties and digestive disorders to AIDS, ALS, MS and Cancer. It is becoming more widely accepted that our physical maladies are caused (or contributed to) by unresolved angers, traumas, guilt, grief and the like. I have had many discussions with physicians in recent years and more and more of them echo emotional strife as a major cause of serious diseases. Until now, however, there hasn't been an effective way to eliminate these health bandits. We can mask them with drugs, of course, but true cures have been hard to find.

Fortunately, EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and its many cousins now provide easy and elegant tools that will aid the serious health practitioner in killing the root causes of disease...instead of the client.

What I share here is NOT a substitute for sound medical diagnosis NOR is it a substitute for visiting your medical doctor for proper treatment. Rather, it is a tool that, properly applied, is capable of wide ranging relief (quality training or quality assistance will add to its effectiveness in person here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas). Its simplicity and far reaching effectiveness give it candidacy as a mandatory method for anyone seeking help for even the most difficult of problems. I know that's a bold statement but I've been at this for over eight years now and have seen so many impressive results over such a wide variety of issues that this statement is easy, if not essential, to make.

The Recapping and Tapping Protocol listed below is simple (I'm assuming you already know how to apply EFT Tapping in Las Vegas).

1. Make a list of every bothersome specific event you can remember. If you don't find at least 50 you are either going at this half-heartedly or you have been living on some other planet. Many people will find hundreds.

2. While making your list you may find that some events don't seem to cause you any current discomfort. That's OK. List them anyway. The mere fact that you remember them suggests a need for resolution.

3. Give each specific event a title; as though it was a mini-movie. Examples: Dad hit me in the kitchen. I stole Suzie's sandwich. I almost slipped and fell into the Grand Canyon. My third grade class ridiculed me when I gave that speech. Mom locked me in a closet for 2 days. Mrs. Adams told me I was stupid. I hurt my neck in the car crash when I was 19 years old. I’ve been afraid of the dark since I was 9 after reading that scary story.

4. When the list is complete, pick out the biggest redwoods in your negative forest and apply EFT Tapping in Las Vegas to each of them until you either laugh about it or "can't think about it any more." Be sure to notice any aspects that may come up and consider them separate trees in your negative forest. Apply EFT Tapping in Las Vegas to them accordingly. Be sure to keep after each event until it is resolved. If you cannot get a 0-10 intensity level on a particular movie then assume you are repressing it and apply 10 full rounds of EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on it from every angle you can think of. This gives you a high possibility for resolving it. After the big redwoods have been removed, go to the next biggest trees. And then the next, and so on and so forth.

5. Do at least one movie (specific event) per day, preferably three; for 3 months. It only takes minutes per day to perform EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. At this rate you will have resolved 90 to 270 specific events in 3 months. Then notice how your body feels better. Note, too, how your ‘threshold for getting upset’ is much lower. Note how your relationships are better and how many of your therapy type issues just don't seem to be there any more. Revisit some of those specific events and notice how those previously intense incidences have faded into nothingness. Note any improvements in your blood pressure, pulse and breathing ability.

I ask you to consciously notice these things because, unless you do, the quality healing you will have undergone will seem so subtle that you may not notice it. You may even dismiss it saying, "Oh well, it was never much of a problem anyway." This happens repeatedly with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas and thus I bring it to your awareness.

6. If you are taking medications, you may feel the need to discontinue them. Please do so ONLY under a qualified physician’s advice. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is NOT a substitute for your doctors advice or diagnosis.

It is my hope that the Recapping and Tapping Protocol becomes a worldwide routine. A few minutes per day will make a monumental difference in school performance, relationships, health and our quality of life. But these are meaningless words unless others (you) put the idea into practice. Join us at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas at our physical location to learn more.

Relaxation Protocols And EFT Tapping Part 2

I’ll now detail out the In-The-Moment Relaxation protocol we use here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas. If you are unsure in regards to what this is that I’m discussing, please visit the previous post here, Relaxation Protocols And EFT Tapping and read this post first.

How to relax certain areas of your body and muscles throughout the day – Our instruction to our clients at EFT tapping in Las Vegas regarding the In-The-Moment Relaxation protocol goes something like this, “It is necessary that you become aware of your habit of tensing your ___ (Fill in the blank with the area that pains you) on a moment to moment basis and change this habit. Throughout the day check for tension in your upper shoulders, traps, lower back etc., so you can apply the technique of relaxing it. You may want to set the alarm on your phone, tie a string around your finger, or paste a colored piece of paper on your computer screen to remind you.” The alarm is best; set it for every fifteen minutes to remind you to relax your tense areas.

Here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas the In-The-Moment Relaxation protocol is done repetitively, without effort and without seeking any gain. Perform this as often as you can, as long as these mini relaxations don’t interfere with your functioning during the day. Don’t tighten and then relax; just relax. Do nothing. If you choose to ‘do’ something, move your body around a little as if you are stretching, as well as take some deep breathes into your belly to assist in becoming relaxed.

This is difficult to describe and assist you with on a personal basis as I’m unsure where your physical issues are. Often times if you have physical pain in a certain area, that area is not where the real cause or issue originates. This is why it is a good idea to visit us for a free consultation so you can get specific, individualized instruction along with learning the basics of EFT tapping in Las Vegas. Our relaxation protocols go hand-in-hand with EFT tapping. They compliment each other.

Most people here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas can feel tension in certain parts of their bodies and can let go of this tension to some degree or another when they are aware of it. Others cannot. If you are one of those who cannot discern tension or how to relax tense areas you can become sensitive to it in the following way. This is an example for those who suffer from chronic headaches or cervical neck and upper back pain.

As you are reading this right now, put your attention and awareness on your shoulders and allow them to drop just a bit. Almost everyone I know has tension in their upper back, cervical neck and trap muscles leading to the shoulders to constantly elevate. If you can’t notice this, then pull your shoulders back as if you are sitting up straight. Move them around a bit. The sensation is very subtle and will occur out of your awareness if you’re not paying careful attention. These (as well as others) are the muscles that you want to learn to relax throughout the day for these muscles are part of the guarding response that keeps you tight and tense. Again, this is best demonstrated in person here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas. Join us and learn!

In-The-Moment Relaxation is the practice of allowing the muscles to drop and relax all day. Don’t look for immediate results. Don’t strain in any way. It should take just a moment to notice and do and should hardly take any attention away from what you’re involved in. Remember that your voluntary relaxation of these muscles at first will rarely cause much of a sense of relaxation in them. It is best to expect that your voluntary relaxation will only help a little to relax the muscles. Even if this method is effective for you, you may only experience slight relief of symptoms for days or weeks.

In-The-Moment Relaxation on an ongoing basis becomes a habit replacing the tendency to chronically tighten certain areas of your body. This is one of the areas we focus on here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas.

Here are a few hints on the application:

1) It takes time to learn. This is self explanatory. Doing it should take only a moment or two.
2) Make sure that you do not exert effort. Meaning, do not exert any effort to relax. Don’t pull your shoulders down (as in the example above) to relax. Just allow them to naturally find their lowest point. This leads us back to number one, it takes time to learn and why you should join us in person here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas.
3) Continue to practice even if no results seem to occur. Practicing this conscientiously for weeks has helped some clients reduce their symptoms.

One again, all of this is best demonstrated in person here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas. Also, and I know I sound like a broken record, but this is just awareness training. You are becoming aware of your body on a moment-to-moment basis, especially areas that are in pain.

Ok, this is getting long, so I’ll stop for now. I’m sure I’ll be coming back to this technique in the future as it's a key component here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas.

Relaxation Protocols And EFT Tapping

Although EFT Tapping in Las Vegas works wonders in reducing and eliminating stress, most people still have a very difficult time relaxing. This blog post will be the beginning of a series of posts detailing the specifics in regards to our Mind-Body Awareness Relaxation Protocol that can be combined with EFT tapping in Las Vegas as well as other mindful activities.

The word relax comes from the old French word relaxer which means “to make less compact or dense, to loosen, or open” and from the Latin word laxus which means “to be wide, loose, open, slack or languid.” Indeed tension is a state of denseness, tightness, constriction, and contraction. In the cases of chronic pain here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas most clients are dense and tense.

Thus, here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, I’ll define our Mind-Body Awareness and Relaxation Protocol as the practice of conscious effortlessness. In our treatment protocol, we use mind-body relaxation in two different but complementary ways, as briefly introduced in this post.

The In-The-Moment Relaxation protocol is first and is used throughout your normal day to regularly interrupt the habit of tensing specific muscles and soft tissue (which is derived from a possibly over-active CNS or Central Nervous System) that are causing you chronic pain. Performing In-The-Moment Relaxation can involve many brief relaxations during the day along with EFT tapping in Las Vegas. As you become more skilled, this practice takes less time and is done almost automatically. The intention here is for you to abort the old, dysfunctional chronic habit of tensing throughout the day. This is also part of our awareness training for you. To ‘become aware’ throughout the day of when you are uptight and or tense.

Our Comprehensive Relaxation protocol at EFT tapping in Las Vegas is the second form which requires setting aside time that is devoted to the practice of technique, without the distractions that occur during your normal everyday life. This is best practiced two to three times a day with each practice period lasting approximately 30 to 45 minutes. The skill of resting attention in sensation that can make it possible for pain to reduce or disappear is developed in the Comprehensive Relaxation protocol. Yes, this does seem like a lot of ‘time’ devoted to de-stressing. Only you can make the decision to determine the worth...or not. It's up to you.

The In-The-Moment Relaxation protocol does not offer the depth of relaxation achieved the by Comprehensive Relaxation protocol and by itself can have clear but limited effects. (This is the same with EFT tapping in Las Vegas; quick rounds of tapping throughout the day work well, yet setting aside time and really digging into the ‘aspects’ of an issue achieve better results.) The comprehensive practice represents the laboratory in which the skill of the method is developed. It represents the heart of the practice and produces the most benefit (just as comprehensive EFT tapping in Las Vegas does.)

Under normal circumstances most people would rarely be willing to devote the time and attention to change the habit of tightening up certain areas of the body either under stress or as a protective guarding response against pain felt in the body. The energy required (and taught here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas) to change this habit comes from the strength of the desire to stop the pain and dysfunction. We will assist you in this as well.

Clients of EFT Tapping in Las Vegas are often surprised at the number of times each day that they tense their muscles. Changing this habit is possible but not a small matter. If you have joined us or sought help elsewhere you already know this through awareness training.

Most EFT tapping in Las Vegas clients will devote the time and effort required to change this habit when they feel doing so reduces or eliminates their symptoms. Peculiarly, this motivation is the gift of this condition, even though it rarely feels like a gift when the symptoms exist unabated.

This blog post is starting to get long, so I’ll cut it short here. In the next post I’ll dig further into the details of the In-The-Moment Relaxation protocol that we offer here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. This will include further awareness training as well as how to relax your body throughout the day.

Using EFT Tapping In Las Vegas To Stay Present

EFT tapping in Las Vegas for transforming mind, body and soul using the wisdom of our mind and body to face stress, pain and illness.

Which of us, in our heart of hearts, is unaware that those moments when we feel deeply connected to another person, to nature, or to the quiet stillness in our own being are deeply healing? To those of us willing to quest for wholeness, the quest need not be lengthy. Wholeness is as close as the next breath - as the next moment we are willing to be fully aware of. This is our focus with EFT tapping in Las Vegas.

Becoming stress free or unconcerned is more than just using EFT tapping in Las Vegas or meditation practice, yet it can have profound medical and psychological benefits; it is also a way of life that reveals the gentle and loving wholeness that lies at the heart of our being, even in times of great pain and suffering. Use EFT tapping in Las Vegas to eliminate the negative emotions and chronic physical pain, and then true health and no-mind meditation is attainable.

The success of our EFT tapping in Las Vegas program comes in part from its unique synthesis of East and West - of western psychology and eastern meridians points - and in part out of our gift for making the EFT tapping in Las Vegas and the science exciting and clearly relevant to our health and the quality of our lives.

My objective in conducting these EFT tapping in Las Vegas sessions is that they may serve as an effective counterbalance to all the ways we get pulled out of ourselves and wind up losing sight of what is most important. We are apt to get so caught up in the urgency of everything we have to do, and so caught up in our heads and in what we think is important, that it is easy to fall into a state of chronic tension and anxiety that continually drives our lives on automatic pilot. This stress is only compounded when we are faced with a serious medical condition, with chronic pain or a chronic disease. This is why we must be pro-active in our lives and use EFT tapping in Las Vegas.

The way of being described here, which emerges naturally out of the cultivation and practice of clearing negative emotions with EFT tapping in Las Vegas, can serve as a doorway into a profound way of knowing ourselves better and for mobilizing the inner resources we all have, no matter what our situation and our condition, for learning, for growing, for healing, and for transformation across the life span, starting from where we find ourselves, no matter where or how that is.

So much of the time, we are out of touch with the richness of the present moment, and the fact that inhabiting this moment, our only moment, with greater awareness shapes the moment that follows, and if we can sustain it by using EFT tapping in Las Vegas, actually shapes the future and the quality of our lives and relationships in ways we often simply do not appreciate. The only way we have of influencing the future is to own the present, however we find it. Then we just might find ways to live the life that is actually ours to live. This is why EFT tapping in Las Vegas is so important: Negative emotions pull us out of the present, always bringing us back to a past event, or speculating about a future event.

The people who embark on this journey in the EFT tapping in Las Vegas sessions do so in an effort to regain control of their health and to attain peace of mind. This blog is an invitation to the reader to embark upon a journey of self-development, self-discovery, learning, and healing.

Having both a healthy mind and a healthy body is not merely a good idea or a nice philosophy. It is something we need to embody moment by moment for ourselves, if it is to have any value for us at all. And that requires practice on the part of all of us who perform EFT tapping in Las Vegas.

Awareness And EFT Tapping Las Vegas

Most of us wish for a friend who accepts us unconditionally. What if we could accept ourselves unconditionally and become our own best friend? Here's a phrase I'll use with our EFT tapping Las Vegas clients in regards to their own self-talk:

"I want to be present with you exactly as you are. I am not asking you to change in any way. While I may have preferences about how I might want you to be, I am committed to letting go of these preferences in favor of letting you be exactly the way you are. You may change from one moment to the next, and I am committed to being fully present with you on a moment to moment basis and to feel and accept you however much you change. No matter what happens in this moment, I am determined to let you be as you are with an open and sincere heart."

We teach the importance of this phrase here with our EFT tapping Las Vegas clients. Why is this so important? Because most of us, deep down inside, really don’t know or accept ourselves. Then, when something is perceived to 'go wrong,' we want change. Change what? Where do we begin?

Instead of endlessly discussing symptoms as woes and how to get rid of them here with our EFT tapping Las Vegas clients, when we do focus on symptoms of one kind or another it is to tune in to the actual experience of the symptoms themselves in those moments when they dominate the mind and body.

We do this in a particular way with our EFT tapping Las Vegas clients, which might be called giving the stories or symptoms attention. Attention, or attentive capacity which most lack, involves bringing the stability and calm of mindfulness to our symptoms and to our reactions to them. This is where we use EFT tapping Las Vegas style to slowly work through each aspect of the story.

Allow yourself to bring awareness to your own thoughts and feelings and their physical, psychological, and social consequences as you observe them. As each negative emotion arises, stop the story and perform EFT tapping Las Vegas style on that very specific issue. If you can observe in yourself the toxicity of certain beliefs, thought patterns, and behaviors as they arise in the moment, then you can work to eliminate their hold on you.

In this way using EFT tapping Las Vegas style, our clients come to see that science is confirming what has long been known, namely that each one of us has an important role to play in our own well-being. This role can be more effectively played if we can become conscious of and modify certain aspects of the way we live which can affect our health. These include our attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs; our emotions; our stance in relationship to society; and our behaviors.

All can influence our health in different ways; all are related to stress and our attempts to cope with it; and all are directly influenced by the practice of EFT tapping Las Vegas style. Join us, won’t you?

EFT Tapping - Mind-Body Relaxation Protocol

Here at Northwest Wellness Center where I run my medical massage business as well as EFT tapping in Las Vegas I’m putting together a large, comprehensive program named (for now) the mind-body relaxation protocol. One formal name for it, and what this blog was named is, the Mind-Body Awareness and Healing Arts Center. I’ll cover a few of the details here and expand upon them in future blog posts listed here.

What is the mind-body relaxation protocol? It’s a series of different methods of stress relief techniques including EFT tapping in Las Vegas, meditation, proper breathing techniques, massage therapy, basic yoga techniques and several other different movement therapies. Why is this needed? Because I’ve yet to meet one person over the past 20 years that was not, or currently is not, stressed out; nor do any of us deal with stress very well. There always seems to be some low-level or intense anxiety in either the physical body (as physical discomfort or pain) or in the mind (as worry or concern.)


“Now Kris, if EFT tapping in Las Vegas is so marvelous at eliminating pain and emotional trauma, why don’t we just use this one method? Why is there a need for all these other activities mentioned above?” Good question. Although the mind and body are one, and the mind controls the body, there’s still ‘residue’ left in the physical body from our daily lives, activities and abuse. EFT tapping in Las Vegas is great for eliminating pain, yet it doesn’t cause bulging discs in your spine to magically stop bulging. Nor does it magically eliminate scar tissue from previous physical trauma. It doesn’t eliminate trigger points in muscles so they disappear. I could continue on with thousands of examples but I’m sure you get my point.

Thus the need for multiple tools in our toolbox, so to speak. As the mind runs the body, and IMHO is most important, we should begin there. EFT tapping in Las Vegas should be done as often as needed. Meditation and proper breathing techniques will also be included to reduce and minimize our stress levels during the day. Medical massage, yoga and other movement therapies (as I’m also a personal trainer) are directed more towards the physical body, yet, as the mind and body are one, ALL of the above affect both the mind and the body, simultaneously. You'll find this out as you perform any of the above in a more mindful manner, which I can assist you with.


I’ve studied a lot in regards to all of the ‘tools’ mentioned above. There are thousands, or probably hundreds of thousands of methods already that cover how to meditate, different forms of massage, yoga, etc. Three sources that are favorites of mine, and where I got the idea to create a mind-body relaxation protocol here at EFT tapping in Las Vegas, are:

Koichi Tohei Sensei, the founder of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido, also known as Ki Aikido.

Full Catastrophe Living - Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D.

A Headache in the Pelvis: A new understanding and treatment for chronic pelvic pain and syndromes by David Wise, Ph.D. and Rodney Anderson, M.D.

Each of the three above put a different spin on what they teach and apply, yet all three address the mind-body connection in one way or another. Tohei Sensei uses the physical movements of Aikido (waza) coupled with Ki breathing, Ki meditation and Kiatsu. Jon Kabat-Zinn uses meditation and yoga. Dr. Wise and Anderson use trigger point therapy, visualization and meditation. Now you (hopefully!) can see where I’m going with this multi-faceted approach at EFT tapping in Las Vegas.

Please keep in mind that you don’t have to partake in ALL of these activities. That’s why I’m here as a Personal Performance Coach. You and I work together in creating your own program that suites you best. If you want to just perform EFT tapping in Las Vegas and some movement therapy, that’s fine. Perhaps you want to learn how to breathe properly in a stressful situation and visualize the EFT tapping in Las Vegas procedure. We can do that as well.


This all boils down to a couple of main issues: Eliminating emotional trauma when in a stressful situation (or anytime), and using functional movement to keep the body tuned up. Mind-Body. All of the above address both the mind and body, yet they seem to provide the best results when performed mindfully. Raising your level of awareness, is again, what I’m here to assist you with.

Ok, that’s enough for now. I have a few EFT Tapping in Las Vegas clients I need to work with on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Have a beautiful weekend and keep tapping, moving and enjoying yourself!

Placebo Effect With Dr. Lissa Rankin

I'm a big fan of Dr. Lissa Rankin. In the short video below she covers a lot of (basic) ground in regards to mind over medicine in self healing. She's also a big fan of EFT Tapping in Las Vegas which is a plus as well.

Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves? Lissa Rankin, MD at TEDxAmericanRiviera

She says, "The placebo effect is concrete evidence that the body has its own innate self repair system."

Now, why is this important to us, here?

Well, it's not really important if you are looking to get out of pain. Yet, people in the healthcare industry get all worked up over 'evidence, 'science,' and 'placebo.' Oh, and let's not forget the elephant in the room, 'self healing.' Why is this such an issue? In my humble opinion of course, it's because if a placebo works, which is a part of self healing, where are all the health care providers and pharmaceutical companies going to make their money?

Please understand that here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas I'm about making money as well. Yet, do I need to gouge people? I don't think so. Gouging occurs in almost all professions, yet, the healthcare industry is notorious for gouging. I'm sad to say it, but even people performing EFT Tapping in Las Vegas (as well as around the country) are gouging people. What's gouging you ask? Well, charging people $180.00 for 50 minutes is gouging.

Do I think providers need to get a fair price for their work? Of course. Yet, and here's the main point, clients and patients getting results should be priority #1, not the healthcare provider making money. Yet, in every industry, even with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, this is backwards.

What should the going rate be? Heck if I know. What I DO know is that if you are charging over double the price of the rest of your competitors, you are gouging. I don't care if you have special training from special teacher in whatever it is you do. EFT Tapping in Las Vegas has many forms and many names. It's also been shown and proven that many methods work, and none are 'better' than the others. Thus, why gouge people? I thought you were trying to help them, not line your pockets.

Yes, this post has turned into a rant...so be it. It just works me up when I talk to other providers about what they're doing and the first words out of their mouth are, "Well, I need to drop more money to the bottom line." Eh? I thought the creed you agree to abide by was, "Do no harm, first, or do your best to assist the client." Here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas with Kris Kelley you won't get gouged. Heck, I've even had clients offer me more money than I charge.

Oh well, rant over. I hope you got the point.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas Style With Las Vegas Massage

When I was on the telephone with EFT Tapping founder Gary Craig several weeks ago he gave me a suggestion I’ve taken to heart and have tried out with clients. I told him that I was a Las Vegas massage therapist and he recommended that I combine EFT tapping Las Vegas style along with my massage protocol.

He mentioned that perhaps I could have clients think about an MPI (Most pressing issue) while I work on areas of their body that are in pain or they are having an issue with. He told me something I already knew, which was that there are hundreds of energy meridian points located throughout the body, and that perhaps while they think of a painful issue I could cover these meridian points with EFT Tapping Las Vegas style during Las Vegas massage.

Or, have the Las Vegas massage client think of their MPI while I provide long, soothing strokes down the back of their spine. This seems to work (both methods mentioned above) in reducing their level of intensity, yet not as quickly as tapping on the specific meridian points that EFT Tapping Las Vegas style emphasizes in our protocol. (To see the tapping protocol, visit this page here, EFT Tapping Las Vegas Protocol and scroll down to the picture of the meridian points.)

These methods above were conducted on four Las Vegas massage clients, two with each method. I have tried one other option, and that is to have the client tap on the specific meridian points as described by EFT tapping Las Vegas while I also press into specific areas of their body where they feel pain. I also had the client tap on the points while I pressed into areas I thought may be the cause of the physiological pain and not the actual area in pain. This worked marvelously, yet it’s only one client and hardly a ‘proven method’ that works all the time. I’ll work with many more clients on this to continue to see how these methods work.

Please understand that this is a slow process, at least for me, in demonstrating results or lack thereof. Why? Several reasons contribute to this. First, I keep Las Vegas massage and EFT tapping Las Vegas style as separate protocols for most clients. This is because many new clients just want a massage for either stress relief or pain relief. Also, many don’t have the time to combine the two. Next may be a legal matter, as it would be a stretch to say that EFT tapping Las Vegas style would be a massage modality as defined by the State of Nevada in which I’m governed as a licensed massage therapist.

So, even with my regular clients, this takes time. Those who are willing to try EFT tapping Las Vegas style (it’s always their choice) may do so, if I think it may assist them. This isn’t something I’m forcing on clients. Yet, for those who are open to many options and agree to give it a try, it’s seemed to work very well.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas Protocol

I've finally found the time to write up the steps in regards to the EFT Tapping Las Vegas protocol. Yes, I'm well aware that there's already a million pages describing how to tap. Yet, for my own SEO for my pages, I needed to create one for myself.

Also understand that there's many forms of 'EFT Tapping.' I've learned from many of the advanced practitioners, yet mostly from the founder, Gary Craig. In my humble opinion though, that doesn't really matter. What matters is the interaction between you and me, if you are having trouble. Being specific to an issue, as well as bringing forth aspects of an issue are the key points that seem to really make EFT Tapping in Las Vegas successful for YOU. (This isn't about me at all, it's all about you.)

Thus, here's a link to my new EFT Tapping Las Vegas Protocol page:

EFT Tapping Las Vegas Protocol

Please note that I'll be adding a video to the page above as well when I find the time. In my humble opinion, a video of someone actually performing the EFT Tapping Las Vegas protocol is needed to be successful. If this still doesn't work, please call me at the phone number listed below and we can meet and I'll walk you through the steps.

Enjoy!

EFT Tapping With Las Vegas Clients

Here’s a quick story in regards to one of my clients who is being assisted with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. Before I get to it, I’d first like to comment in regards to what EFT Tapping is NOT. And yes, this relates to the story.

EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is not hypnosis or any form of mind control. It will not ‘erase’ your memory at all or make you forget memories. It’s not psychoanalysis in that you need to dwell on any emotional issue you are having for any extended period of time, or, tell me all the details in regard to it. You don’t have to speak at all about it if you don’t want to.

I mention this above as the client with whom I’ll refer to as ‘John,’ was concerned with ‘losing his memories’ in some shape or form. That’s not the point and is not what occurs with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

As stated in a previous post, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. We have a distressing memory, this leads to a disruption in the body’s energy system, and then we have a negative emotion. This leads to chronic emotional trauma, chronic pain, disease, etc.” What we do is eliminate this disruption in the body’s energy system, thus eliminating negative emotions here at EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. Now, the rest of the story.

John lost his wife two years ago this month. They were extremely close and this was a devastating loss for him. His entire world revolved around her. She lost a nasty battle with cancer which I can relate to, as my sister lost a battle with cancer as well almost two years ago. We have discussed this on and off for the past two years, as John visit’s me for massage twice a week. I’ve mentioned to him EFT Tapping in Las Vegas on several occasions, yet he’s never really been very interested...Or perhaps just not ready.

Well, during the past couple of months during the holiday season, the emotional pain was more than he could endure. He stated he was willing to try anything in an attempt to relieve some of this mental and physical stress and pressure that was consuming him during every moment. (Even in his sleep; he told me he hasn’t had a good nights sleep in years due to all the horrific nightmares in regards to he and his wife’s struggle.)

Thus, after a massage session, he agreed to give EFT Tapping in Las Vegas a try. I always begin with explaining what we will be attempting to achieve, the process, etc. After explaining this to John, I noticed a smile on his face. I asked him why he was smiling and he said, “And here I thought you were going to hypnotize me or make me forget the memories of my wife. I don’t want that. I want to remember her forever, just without all this emotional pain.” Aha!

Have you ever gone through this? Losing someone or something you love? Most of us want to hold on to those memories as they are all we (think) we have. I know I did this with the loss of my sister. We often feel guilty if we don’t mourn, or think of them every single day. This is also part of the natural cycle of recovery. Yet, in my humble opinion, it doesn’t need to be painful. Or, let me re-word that, it doesn’t need to continue to be painful for years, or, forever.

Thus, I taught John the protocol and we cycled through it several times. He got some immediate relief on the general issues, yet once we talked through the real aspects of what was causing him so much pain, he then got great results! Afterwards he stood up straight and was breathing deeply again. (For the most part, he always arrived slump-shouldered, down and out.) It was a great feeling in assisting him with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas. We’ll work on this more after our next massage session.

So, the main point of this blog post is not how wonderful or marvelous EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is, but what it is NOT. John had the conception that I was going to ‘erase the memories of his wife,’ which is incorrect. Even though we had discussed this protocol several times in the past, he only heard what he wanted to hear in regards to many issues in his mind and losing memories of his wife. Hey, we all do this. Or, at least I know I do.

Another key point and I see this all the time in regards to my massage business, is that people seek help on their own timeline, or take action themselves in regards to their own health once something become intolerable. We, as health care providers, can’t rush this process. I gave up trying to save the world many, many years ago. And, I’m sure this is the way it should be, even if we want to assist someone with all our heart's desire.

EFT Tapping Las Vegas - Placebo Effect?

At the location I work at, Northwest Wellness Center, we have several new treatment options available. Besides my own projects such as EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, integrating personal training with more movement assessments and therapies, the marvelous doctor I work with is beginning several new therapies in her chiropractic practice as well.

She’s beginning therapies such as oxygen therapy, vibration therapy, micro-current therapy as well as light therapy. Exciting times! EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is even mentioned in a book she provides to her patients, entitled The Power of Self-Healing by Dr. Fabrizio Mancini. He’s a great ‘open minded’ doctor, just like the one I work with. We are going to have an excellent year with clients and patients! Keep up to date on our webpages here, Chronic Back Pain Treatment In Las Vegas and Chronic Back Pain Relief in Las Vegas.

As mentioned in previous blog posts, I haven’t always been open minded. My thought processes swung like a pendulum from one viewpoint to another. When I was open-minded I ordered the EFT Tapping in Las Vegas material many years ago, yet, then my mind swung in the other direction, towards science and so called ‘evidence based therapies.’ Yet, here’s the rub, and it took years for it to finally sink into my thick skull ;)

In science, if they can’t determine HOW something works, then it can’t be labeled as evidence based. A friend of mine spoke to a science researcher and relayed this to me in regards to EFT Tapping in Las Vegas or anything else that is ‘tough to prove' or can't explain how it works.

He told me that when studying something they (the science researchers) have to show two things; that the ‘whatever is being studied’ works and (the big one) HOW it works. He told me that he has seen hundreds of studies that have shown things like vitamins, herbs, alternative therapies (such as EFT Tapping in Las Vegas) and other things have worked, and sometimes they have worked better then the standard therapy, BUT, the studies could not show exactly HOW it worked, thus the rub.

So, because the studies could not show ‘how it worked,’ they could not say that the (whatever) did work. He also told me that the format for most standard studies, the same exact things has to be use exactly the same way every time with everyone that is in the study. (Is this even possible when working with the human body? This also makes it very difficult for something like EFT Tapping in Las Vegas to be ‘proven’ due to the fact that if you miss the true aspects to ‘tap’ on, then one may say, “It didn’t work.” True, yet, not for the reason science chooses for you to believe.)

Another example, take herbs; when used in a study, the same amount of the herb has to be used at the same time in the same way with everyone in the study even when the people (or animals) are not the same size or the same sex such as male or female. Think of this, the average "serving" or dose of a OCD (over the counter drug) is based on a 175 to 185 pound man, so if you are a 250 pound man the recommended "dose" might not work, or if you are a 120 pound woman it could be too much and they would have a better chance of getting the side affects. This goes for EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as well.

I was also told that a lot of times they had to classify something as ‘the placebo effect’ when they could not find out or see how something did what it did. So, the fact that something worked, but was classified as the placebo effect…does that tell us that it did not work or that the researchers just could not find out HOW it worked? The placebo effect is very powerful, yet, most people dismiss it as hocus pocus, a quick fix, results that won’t last, just a trick in your mind, etc. Thus, I’m often asked if EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is just a placebo effect. Yes and no. It depends. If the mind runs the body, which it does, and a calm mind residing in parasympathetic mode is activated, thus allowing calming hormones, not stress hormones to course through the body, and this is all based on the placebo effect, does it really matter? It’s the same with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

Thus, to summarize what my buddy told me in regards to his discussion with the science researcher: “There is a big flaw in how we do studies when it comes to things that affect the body when all the factors can not be standardized 100%.”

Please understand that I love evidence and science. Yet, just because something can’t be explained by science as to how it worked doesn’t mean it didn’t work. So, let’s just keep on tapping and see where it goes. If you haven’t tried EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, give me a phone call at the number listed below, or send me an e-mail.
