Stress and Trauma Relief on the Front Lines with TFT

We just received a report from a TFT practitioner on the front lines that they are having amazing successes with TFT and helping with stress reduction with the troops.

He requested 500 wallet sized trauma relief cards and other easily transported support materials.  Dr. Roger and Joanne Callahan sent them out immediately, so pleased to be able to support our troops with these simple self-help procedures.  He requested materials that he could use for rapid treatments and self help tools for our troops serving in harms way. Will keep everyone updated…. Caroline Sakai, PhD, TFTdx, VT

Obsessing About How Long It Lasts – TFT And Meridian Tapping Energy

TFT meridian energt, EFT, thought field Therapy, Rogeer Callahan

By Mark Steinberg, PhD.

How long does Thought Field Therapy treatment last? This seems to be an obsession among many people we talk to, skeptics and seekers alike.

Here is a good example:

Last February, I treated a 16-year old for OCD symptoms, using diagnostic face-to-face TFT. This adolescent had seriously disabling symptoms. He felt that there were good times to leave his house and bad times. If he missed the narrow window of good times, he could not leave his house. He was in grave distress.

Obviously, this condition seriously impacted his life. Ironically, he functioned very well outside of his obsessive compulsiveness. He was an excellent student and a first-string quarterback on his high school football team. His OCD included numerous restricting rituals, such as checking many things repeatedly and counting ritualistically.

After one TFT diagnostic treatment, his SUD went to a 1. He was giggling and flushed. I asked him to get upset about his problem, and, of course, he could not do it. Seeing how relaxed and jovial he had become, I needled him a bit to test the limits and validity of these results.

Oh, come on, I prodded. Isn’t it obvious that certain times are bad, and you should avoid leaving during those times?

That’s ridiculous, he laughed. I know I was like that, but not anymore. I can leave at any time.

We were both impressed by the dramatic and rapid results.

I didn’t see him for a year, and found myself thinking about him. Figuring that his problem was pretty severe, and that he might need more help, I called him to find out how he was doing, and to let him know that I could now treat him with Voice Technology.

To my amazement, he said he was doing fine, his problem of only leaving the house at certain times and checking things and counting had completely disappeared, and he did not need any treatment.

He said, I guess the treatment really worked. As an afterthought he added, Or maybe I just matured.

I was pleased, but dumfounded. (Nothing like an apex to end a conversation!)

Obsessing about how long this single treatment had lasted, I had to remind myself that keeping someone better was a better treat than treating someone longer.

Like the treatment, that is a thought that lasts.

TFT For Healing Of Our Pets?

Pets and TFT - EFT GaryI was visiting a friend a couple weeks ago and she was explaining how her 7-month-old puppy, Ave, had been having diarrhea off and on for a while, and consistently for the last 3 days. She was even waking my friend a couple times a night to be let out so she could relieve herself. Her appetite was not good for days at a time and hadn’t eaten much at all the last couple days. The puppy was also scratching herself a lot.

Needless to say, my friend was very concerned.

So we decided to experiment with using TFT on Ave. I found a massive reversal at the outset and discovered her collar was toxic. We took the collar off and corrected the reversal, my friend acting as surrogate.

Being a chiropractor with excellent knowledge of the body who also practices TFT, she suggested a few things to test, which first led to the discovery that Ave was being weakened by bacteria. At this point the puppy got up to vomit some undigested food, after which we used the 7-second tx for the bacteria.

The next area that tested weak was Ave’s kidneys, which we treated with a tapping sequence. And finally, we did a tapping sequence for her stomach. Ave immediately stood up, walked to her bowl and ate everything in it!

The next morning Ave’s stool was normal. My friend continued to test her puppy and did the 7-second tx for bacteria one more time two days later.

We’re happy to report that Ave has been consistently better ever since the treatment, including a significant decrease in the itching. How fun to be able to use TFT to bring such immediate relief to a pet!

Thank you, Dr. Callahan!

Thought Field Therapy’s Role in the Bereavement Process

We acquire the strength we have overcome

In my experience, the most common problem with grief is people not grieving. When a client comes in looking for help with grief, the first question I ask is, “What are you doing? How are you grieving?”

The most common response is that it hurts to much and “I cry ever time I remember (he or she) is gone.”

Avoiding the memories, avoiding the parts of their current life that triggers the memories, or avoiding sharing memories with others is a common coping mechanism to manage the pain even for the toughest person.

Taking the time to be with feelings of love for the one who has died and integrating the fact that person is no longer with him or her is a necessary component in reconstructing a life.

Grieving is an active process requiring our engagement.

Time passively passed without our conscious awareness is of little help in this process. Time spent locked in overwhelming emotion that freezes our thinking and prevents us from taking action is of less help.

Making the change in our being requires living with the reality of having been given the gifts of our loved one and now being without the physical presence of his or her.

TFT provides a means to getting unstuck and using our feelings in this change process.

TFT, HRV, and Tapping to Heal the Broken Heart

[E]
By David Hanson, DEH, TFT-Dx

Ruby and Jack (not their real names) had been married for 63 years. They were high school sweethearts, married, raised a family, and weathered all the storms of their lives together.

Ruby was now alone. Jack had passed away in his sleep almost a year before her nephew, Bob, brought her to my office at the funeral home.

Bob was a funeral home employee working in the sales department. He had seen me work many times with patrons of our establishment in helping them past the grief that was paralyzing their lives. He had seen me direct others through “that tapping therapy you do” and wondered if I could help his aunt who – almost a year after losing her beloved husband – still cried at the mention of his name.

Ruby was a plump little woman whose face was kind and care-worn. But just talking about her deceased mate brought up a level of emotional discomfort that was impossible to miss.

Bob was concerned that her grief was so significant that it was beginning to impact her health and functioning.

After talking with her for a very short time, I took her HRV. Her SDNN was only 23. Not a very good score. Then, we started the treatment. I asked her to rate the level of her emotional discomfort. Even if she had not said so, the look on her face when I moved her into that thought field showed she was a 10. The tears welled in her eyes and her face contorted in an attempt to stifle her impulse to cry.

I applied the TFT treatment. In just seconds there was an improvement – a dramatic improvement. The tears dried up, her face relaxed and both her nephew and I noticed a new countenance settle over her. Even she looked surprised.

“What did you just do?” she asked me. I didn’t answer her question.

Rather, I asked, “How is the feeling now when you think of Jack? Is it better, worse, or the same?”

A slight smile crept across her face and she said, “I’m almost afraid to say this, but I actually feel sort of happy and lighter somehow.” Her nephew looked at me out of the corner of his eye with a disbelieving look. He was still skeptical. Read more
