Boot Camp in Denver, Colorado September 24-25, 2013

By Jenny Edwards, TFT-VT

A Boot Camp was held September 28-29, 2013 in Denver, Colorado at the Staybridge Suites near Denver International Airport. Six people attended. Two of the participants were taking Boot Camp for the second time, and four were new to TFT. Their stories are below.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class! I began to get sick with the flu; however, we relieved some stress and ingested toxins, which gave my body a much better opportunity to heal itself. Jenny is a wonderful teacher and a walking example of what she teaches. I look forward to incorporating this into my Holistic Animal Practice and my Breathwork Practice. –Mary Kennedy, In the Presence of Animals

This training was awesome! I was able to get rid of my spider phobia and the trauma from my second grade teacher that has plagued me for 50-plus years! I’m excited to go out and give others the tools to help themselves. Jenny was great. She was fun and explained things excellently! –Dee

This is my second TFT training. I was brand new to TFT five months ago. The first training was exciting and also overwhelming. Now, I really feel more confident in my knowledge and ability to use TFT. In addition, I was able to release anxiety from a childhood trauma and physical pain from an adult accident. I am hopeful about the impact TFT will have on family, friends, and clients.

At the training, my HRV was tested. After the baseline was taken, I was treated for a childhood trauma. I began treatment with a picture in my mind of a situation that has haunted me for almost 30 years. While working with Jenny, the picture was erased as my SUD was lowered to 0. As I sat to measure my post-HRV level, something remarkable happened. The picture returned; however, the people in the picture had changed. The people who originally had been full of horror were now full of joy. It is as if the SUD did not just drop to 0, but it completely reversed to a minus 10! I am overwhelmed with surprise by what seems like a healing miracle! Thanks for all you do! –Janice Steinbach

This is my second Boot Camp experience. It has helped to solidify the concepts of TFT. While I didn’t feel comfortable using TFT in my work after the first Boot Camp, I feel ready to start now. Jenny is a wonderful instructor. She makes you feel comfortable in dealing with even the most sensitive of traumas. –Judy Israel

The Brief Story of Thought Field Therapy (TFT) And Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

About three years ago, I received a phone call from Fuller Royal, MD director of a medical clinic in Las Vegas. He called to tell me that the treatments I developed were helping his patients. He told me that he used Heart Rate Variability (HRV), an objective test, unresponsive to placebo, in order to test all his treatments. He said that he never has seen a more powerful means of improving HRV.

A short while later, I was contacted by an expert on HRV, he told me that he was using HRV to measure the effectiveness of various treatments to reduce anger.

When he tried my treatment for chronic anger, he saw a dramatic improvement in the patient and also a dramatic improvement in the HRV score. (It is well known that chronic anger can be a serious problem for heart patients.)

Still later, I heard from a practitioner in Norway who manufactures HRV equipment and the results he obtained from using my treatments had such a powerful effect on his HRV equipment that at first he thought something went wrong with the equipment for he had never before seen such changes in HRV. He found it was the power of my treatments and his equipment was fine.

The term Heart Rate Variability refers to a precise measure in milliseconds in the variation in the intervals between heart beats. Over 40 years ago, it was found that when the interval between heart beats becomes smaller then death follows. Read more

Roger and I have just returned from the UK and a great Optimal Health course where some of our long time practitioners of TFT, as well as a few new ones, have added the Voice Technology level to their skills.  They came from numerous health care fields to add the convenience and effectiveness of TFT VT to support the emotional health of their clients and training base.  It was a very diverse group and we all shared information on tapping within the fields of nursing, acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, Reiki, hypnosis, trauma specialists and counseling, and, even a little EMDR.

Roger also taped a brief interview with Tom Greenhalgh, Executive Director of National Public Safety Solutions,  for his training programs.  I taped a brief segment on our trauma relief work and our Freedom R & R program for our returning veterans, for the ATFT Foundation,  and our Trauma Relief Blog.

Tom has an excellent production crew and facility and our hope is to have these tapes available to all our trainers for use in their trainings as well.  I will keep our trainers posted on their availability (on the trainer’s list serve).  Thank you Tom!

During the course we saw some excellent improvements in HRV’s as we worked on everyone’s personal issues throughout the weekend.  The objective self-testing and self-treatment methods allowed everyone to help themselves in many areas, as well as improve their clients, especially those who they had found difficult to help in the past.

One attendee helped a client with the recent death of a parent, another helped a sibling with PTSD from war, and several helped family members with various physical pain issues.  We had a variety of problems to practice on and they were enlightening learning experiences for everyone.

Also, we’ll be hosting another “Learn to Tap” Teleclass.

It has been a great experience for both Roger and I, and our class attendees.  They are doing an amazing job of applying tapping to themselves for  all kinds of life stresses, past traumas, over eating, claustrophobia and much more.

The teleclass format has proven to be a very effective way to help many people and provide them with one-on-one interaction with Roger and I, at a very reasonable cost.

Our country’s current economic state and the increased daily stress for most people make a low cost, easy to attend tele-class an effective way to solve problems.

As many are facing job interviews, employee reviews, new social or peer groups as your situations change, we find many of our customers are experiencing some degree of discomfort with these events.  The class starts at the end of the month .

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
