The term "EFT practitioner" is one that tens of millions of people have never heard of, and yet more people are hearing it every day. As dissatisfaction with standard allopathic medicine grows with each passing year, more and more people are opening themselves up to the idea of alternative medicine. Once shunned, as quackery and New Age hokum, alternative medicine has grown to become real rival to traditional medicine, with tens of billions of dollars being spent on it annually in America alone. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is one of the cutting edge therapies in the field. Is an EFT practitioner right for you?
That depends, but in many cases the answer is a resounding yes. If you're like the average person in the United States or Canada, you're troubled with one or more besetting behaviors that you've been trying to shake for years, but aren't able to. If you've tried pills, self help books, twelve step groups, aversion therapy, etc., and have found no relief, then you should seriously consider talking to an EFT practitioner. EFT is a form of energy healing - it's non invasive, inexpensive, painless, and easy to do. Once you've learned the technique, you can usually do it on your own without the help of a professional. But for getting to the emotional roots of your problem, and for learning the precise ways of interacting with your body's energy system to facilitate healing, it's best to begin by talking to someone who has been trained and certified in EFT.
One other quality you'll need is open mindedness. It's natural to be skeptical, and even dubious at first, when you hear about EFT, and its powers to heal. That's fine; everyone feels that way at first. But if you can't get past that, and are only looking to confirm your bias against it, learning EFT will probably be a waste of time, whether you do it on your own or with the help of an EFT practitioner. But for those people with open minds, it can be a life changing adventure.
