The question of how EFT works and why it’s so effective for so many things is an inquiry that is continuing to be explored and researched. Several theories have been suggested and it is likely that more than one of these processes occur simultaneously. At the time this is being written, a 2014 a paper published in the Review of General Psychology, showed that 51 peer reviewed reports or studies on EFT or tapping were published in scientific journals, of which 18 were randomized controlled studies, also known as the gold standard.

The EFT-Wikipedia Controversy Continues. The assumption is, that because Wikipedia is “crowd-sourced,” meaning this site is written and edited by unpaid volunteers, and is continually being amended, updated with supposedly the most current news and research, that it is a valid and unbiased source of information. And that is just where this controversy regarding EFT and Wikipedia begins. (I also need to offer that EFT is far from being the only subject of a non-neutral POV).
A recent study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine has profound implications for each and every person that is taking the time to sit down to read this blog. To be blunt, the longer you sit there reading this, the faster you are aging and the closer you are getting to the end… Read More »
We recently had a few opportunities to use Matrix Reimprinting in a variety of group settings. While attending a workshop, during which I asked for a volunteer, “Sandra” immediately rose her hand. When I asked her what she wanted to work on she said that she wanted to work on resolving a long-standing issue of not having enough energy. I asked her a common EFT-based clarifying question “When did it start?” She said it began when she was very young. At that moment of responding, she suddenly made the connection between her lack of energy and a big T trauma she had experienced during childhood.
She offered comments on her senior student “thesis” regarding the neurobiological foundations of current happiness research and its global inter-cultural and financial implications. During her talk she spoke of the college’s motto, “Non Satis Scire.” The translation is “To know is not enough.”
How we each process information about our environment, especially other people, is a process of risk evaluation. Our brains are designed to evaluate risk, danger and safety. In all new situations, our sensory organs immediately begin an observational process that makes a determination of whether it is safe to engage or whether we should get out of Dodge. This process is initiated by our sense organs, which then communicates with lightning speed to our brain, central and peripheral nervous system which then informs the rest of our body through electrical signals and chemical messengers, directing us towards the next action required to keep us safe. Stephen Porges has termed this process of perception and evaluation “neuroception.” He defines this process as “how neural circuits distinguish whether situations or people are safe, dangerous or life threatening”.
Recently, my wife and co-trainer Alina (at EFTtappingTraining.com) and I were preparing to offer a Matrix Reimprinting training in Boulder, Colorado. We were contacted by a woman who runs a corporate wellness program which provides wellness services to local companies, varying from fitness programs, to bodywork, nutritional classes and stress reduction programs. She reached out to us knowing that we would be teaching in her local area in the upcoming months and wanted to know if we could come to teach at a local corporation that she was affiliated with.
