What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is based on the traditional Chinese meridian system that has been used in Acupuncture/Acupressure for thousands of years. In 1979 Dr. Roger Callahan discovered how quickly and effectively phobias, fears and anxieties could be virtually eliminated by simply tapping on the body's acupressure meridian points. He developed TFT (Thought Field Therapy) which employs specific Algorithms to address a particular psychological or physical issue. TFT and Voice Technology otherwise known as 'Callahan's Techniques' proved very effective but were also very expensive at $10, 000 up to $100K per training seminar, thus limiting the techniques to the wealthy and elite.

Gary Craig, a Stanford University Engineer, Personal Success Coach and passionate philanthropist took Callahan's courses and developed his own less complex but equally effective healing modality known and recognized worldwide today as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).


How does it work?

Simply tapping (no needles are used at all!) on specific Acupressure points send somatic response signals to the amygdala in the brain to change stressful feelings by deactivating limbic system arousal. What the MIND thinks - the BODY follows.  When your mind perceives a stressful thought, your body has a chemical response to this stress.  Your heart rate and blood pressure skyrocket.  Your liver pumps out glucose.  Your adrenal glands secrete stress hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and norepinephrine.  These are the nasty culprits that lead to anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, over eating, weight gain etc.  Adrenaline blocks the cortex activity - this keeps you from thinking clearly.  That's why you react in ways (over eating, over imbibing in alcohol/drugs, or just plain losing your temper) that you later regret!!  Tapping deactivates the limbic response.  Neuroscientists call this neural plasticity. Simply put, EFT is a method of shifting the brain patterns that lead to unwanted thoughts, feelings and/or actions. Tapping on these acupuncture points while an anxious or troublesome memory or thought is brought to mind send immediate signals to the amygdala - the 'fight or flight' part of the limbic system - that 'turn off' feelings of panic/anxiety rapidly altering brain chemistry. Tapping has been shown to significantly relieve feelings of irrational anger, jealousy, guilt, shame, unremitting grief, compulsive behaviours, phobias, PTSD, depression, addictions and chronic pain. International disaster relief teams have been using EFT techniques to aid victims in the aftermath of war, genocide in Rwanda, tsunamis and earthquakes.

What is FasterEFT?

Faster Emotionally Focused Transformations (FasterEFT) is an advanced methodology developed by Robert G. Smith after many years of study and working with virtually thousands of people. It combines the most effective elements of EFT, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Modern Clinical Hypnosis, Be Set Free Fast (BSFF), Matrix Reimprinting and Psychology. The power of FEFT lies in its ability to transform negative and painful emotions by changing the minds representational processes. Many unwanted behaviours and emotions are responses to subconscious patterning. FasterEFT techniques allow us to identify and alter the structure of these patterns and to create new neuro pathways in the brain.  Combined, these techniques produce profound results and create deep changes.

How Does FEFT Work?

The central FEFT philosophy is  “There are no broken people - it’s just that they are operating from hurt and broken ideas.”  Stress, fear, panic – these emotions are the body's reaction to perception. Whatever the mind thinks, the body follows.  However we can consciously change the unconscious mind. Using techniques from clinical hypnosis, NLP and Matrix Reimprinting we can effectively target the subconscious processes that keep us in painful, unhealthy emotional patterns and clear past traumas, thus enabling us to experience the joy of emotional freedom.

What is Matrix Reimprinting?

Matrix Reimprinting is a technique developed by Sasha Allenby and EFT Master Karl Dawson that allows us to access and clear painful memories and unwanted patterns of thought and behaviour. The 'Matrix' is another name for what quantum physicists call the Quantum Field . 'Imprinting' refers to memories and data recorded and stored in our subconscious during the formative first 6 years of our lives. We can also be imprinted with ideas about ourselves and the world through past traumas, negative experiences, culture and our families of origin that leave us with limiting beliefs and perceptions of the world and ourselves. Matrix Reimprinting helps us clear the emotion around a memory as well as uncover and reframe limiting beliefs so we can move beyond them. Further, Matrix Reimprinting helps us to change the negative images we hold in our minds and replace them with powerful new positive ones. This is important because it is the images of ourselves and the world that we hold at a subconscious level that determine our thoughts, our feelings and ultimately our behaviours. Our memories become blueprints for how we experience and interpret new situations and our beliefs become self fulfilling prophecies. Matrix Reimprinting helps us create new thought patterns and beliefs that support positive growth and development.

What is NLP?

NLP LogoNeuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a methodology to understand and change human behavioural patterns. It was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Neuro is defined as the brain and nervous system. Linguistics is a term used to define the language of the brain. It refers to how we encode, organize and give meaning to our subjective experience using the process of our five senses. Programming is in reference to our neurology and the belief patterns and processes that produce emotions and behaviour.


What is QHHT?

QHHT LOGO 1 Retina copy

Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) was developed and refined by Master Hypnotist Dolores Cannon over her 50 year career as a regressive hypnotherapist working with thousands of clients in countries all over the world. This form of hypnosis involves inducing an individual to the Somnambulistic state i.e. the theta brainwave state, through an induction utilizing visualization. The theta brainwave state is a naturally occuring state each of us experiences twice daily: the moment just before you become consciously awake and the moment just before you drift off and fall asleep. 

Some Quantum Physicists refer to this brain state as 'The Field of Potentials', or the 'Matrix'. It was in this 'field' that Edgar Cayce in his deep theta trance state accessed what he recorded as the "Akashic Records".   The often profound results and extraordinary healings that Dolores Cannon experienced with Clients over her 50 year career have been recorded and detailed in Dolores' many published books.
