I entered the field of energy medicine in 1999 after witnessing the miraculous results and benefits of advanced biofeedback technology through the application of Electro-Dermal Screening (EDS).

In 2005 I moved away from herbs and homeopathic remedies into the world of encoded water and thought that I had discovered the most amazing way to balance the body available on planet earth.

Incorporating Psych-K around this same time gave me another tool to help clients break through limiting beliefs. Shortly after I added Quantum Biofeedback technology that I was introduced to by Masuru Emoto (author of “Messages in Water” featured in the movie “What The Bleep Do We Know”) that took me even deeper down the rabbit hole of energy medicine. Using this device and the Meridian Biofeedback equipment increased my ability to assess the root of client’s health issues and provide solutions to these challenges by giving them water “energetically designed” specific to their problem.

I was convinced that there wasn’t a better way to balance the body than with these modalities, especially the imprinted water which gave immediate relief to a broad range of health challenges which led me to developing my own therapeutic water line called “WAVE Miracle Water”. (W=Water; A=Activated; V=Vibrationally; E=Encoded).

In April 2012 I attended the “Thought Field Therapy Algorithm” course, thanks to John Steuernol, a close friend and fellow practitioner.

I embraced the absolutely amazing realm of TFT. I was sure it couldn’t get any better and then I met Stephen Pollitt from “Source Energy Medicine” (author of “Heal Thyself”) and through his inspired work I learned how to increase “allowance of healing”, remove resistance to healing and increase clients energy levels above a 200 calibration based on David Hawkin’s calibration scale of 0 to 1000 (author of Power Versus Force).

Our New Book Is Now Available!

Real People Reveal How Thought Field Therapy® Heals Trauma, Anxiety and Disease.

To all the Thought Field Therapy practitioners around the world who have helped hurting and despairing people recover their lives, this book is dedicated to you. -Roger and Joanne Callahan

For the past 30 years, a simple technique called Thought Field Therapy has been rapidly healing negative emotions such as trauma and anxiety—and even disease—for people who are desperate to regain wellness and normalcy in their lives.

What started as a simple therapeutic treatment to stimulate the body’s own healing systems through the identification of a specific code and then tapping this code on various points of the body—using the same system Chinese acupuncturists do—has become a mainstream therapy accepted by medical doctors, psychologists, alternative healthcare practitioners and even military mental-health personnel.

Thousands of people have recovered rapidly from troublesome disorders like insomnia, gout or tinnitus. Others have eliminated stress, anxiety and phobias such as fear of flying and fear of public speaking—literally within minutes. Still others with life-threatening cancer have completely reversed the disease. Hundreds have regained their lives by curbing addictive urges for nicotine, controlled substances or obsessive behaviors. And those suffering the aftereffects of trauma—warfare, rape, injury or loss—have instantly removed the horrible emotions and feelings tied to that event which previously controlled their lives, sometimes for decades.

But while hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have proven that Thought Field Therapy (or “TFT”) is the most effective tool available for rapidly improving one’s physical and mental health—surprisingly, millions of consumers still suffering from illness, stress, depression and trauma have yet to even hear of it.

That, we believe, is about to change.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been effected by the Aurora, CO shooting this last weekend.

TFT (Thought Field Therapy) Foundation is offering, much-needed trauma and stress relief for those suffering from the recent Aurora, CO shooting. These easily learned, self-applied techniques, Thought Field Therapy (TFT) are based on time-honored principles of both contemporary clinical psychology and Chinese medicine to conquer trauma, anxiety, stress, fears and addictions.

These procedures, the original form of Energy Psychology, are safe, non-invasive and simple to apply.

TFT has been used world-wide in trauma relief and humanitarian projects. Joanne Callahan, President of the TFT Foundation is sympathetic to the needs of those suffering from such traumatic events.  The TFT Foundation’s past humanitarian and trauma relief in Rwanda, New Orleans, Uganda, Haiti and Kosovo have demonstrated that TFT is a powerful and effective treatment for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.) These procedures are now offered free on the foundation’s trauma relief web site.  The procedures used for trauma and stress relief world-wide, are available in video and print in 11 languages.

Recent studies in Rwanda and Uganda demonstrate the effectiveness of these procedures for large scale trauma relief.  Trauma relief procedures are simple and easy to use and are available by visiting http://www.TFTTraumaRelief.wordpress.com

TFT: Helping to overcome trauma around the world

Download The Latest Tapping For Humanity Newsletter…

TFtT Tapping NewsletterLast year, 2011, was an exciting and productive year for the ATFT (now the TFT) Foundation. We saw the completion, continuance and fruition of many programs with support for our mission and goals.

This year is headed in the same fruitful direction. In our Spring Issue we share our plans, needs and hopes for this year and our long-term future.

Glimpse a bit of the past and hope for the future – I am so excited to be able to share the just completed teaser for our upcoming documentary (see below).

Click here to download the latest newsletter

One of our TFT Foundation board members, Mary Cowley, wrote a wonderful description for the documentary.

Peace IS within our grasp. It is at the tip of our fingers…literally. The upcoming documentary “From Trauma to Peace” will shock you in how quickly and easily people can be relieved of the devastating effects of trauma through the safe and effective “tapping” technique of Thought Field Therapy (TFT). AND how the impact of that emotional freedom not only brings peace of mind to the individual, but facilitates peace within and among communities.

Thought Field Therapy Rwanda

The ATFT Foundation funded 2008 PTSD study “Brief trauma intervention with Rwanda genocide survivors using Thought Field Therapy” has just come out in peer reviewed International Journal of Emergency Mental Health. The study’s two-year follow-up will be submitted for publication at a later date.

This study was the first of the ATFT Foundation’s PTSD studies, demonstrating an effective model for large-scale trauma relief. In 2009 a second study with this same model was completed and will be submitted for publication soon. It included a one-year follow-up and will also be submitted for publication.

The TFT (formerly ATFT) Foundation will be purchasing reprints. These reprints will be available from the foundation through Joanne@TFTFoundation.org .

The full citation is:

Rwandan genocide survivors, using Thought Field Therapy.
International Journal of Emergency Mental Health, 13 (3), 161-172.

The third study, demonstrating this same model for large-scale trauma relief will be completed in Uganda in June of this year. Suzanne Connolly received a grant from ACEP (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology) as seed money for this year’s study. The remaining funding will be provided from the three organizations providing the team: TFT Foundation, (USA), ATFT Foundation UK, and the Mats Uldal Humanitarian Foundation (Norway).

Our join objectives for these studies are:

1. To continue developing and scientifically validating a model in which local community leaders can be trained to treat community members in the aftermath of large- scale disasters, especially in regions where trained professionals are scarce.

2. To relieve the distress of those suffering from trauma and promote Post Traumatic Growth (PTG).

The TFT Foundation is in need of support to continue these studies and provide much needed trauma relief. To see further details about the previous studies and projects or to contribute to our efforts, go to www.TFTFoundation.org

Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal’s Corporate section warned about the stress of our workplace environments, citing “Burnout” or “frankly burned out” for some early retirements.  One of the articles says the stress and pressure has increased significantly due to globalization, stiffer competition, government regulation and the weak economy.  They say executive recruiters even measure a candidate’s ability to handle stress.

While these articles reference stress on the CEO’s of major corporations, we all face these same stressors to some degree.

Add to these daily stressors and  we have a potential for burn out at many levels, manifesting in anxiety, fear, anger, frustration, hopelessness, depression, sleeplessness and fatigue among other symptoms.  All of these negative emotions affect our immune system and our ability to fight off the winter flues, colds and viruses. And, our workplace productivity suffers.

What can we do about it? The article briefly mentions exercise as an important release for stress,  but offers no other suggestions short of removing oneself from the job.  Most of us are not in a position to retire.  We need a simple, daily routine to help reduce or eliminate the stress in our lives.

Dr. Roger Callahan developed a daily stress relief program using Thought Field Therapy (meridian tapping) that has given much relief to many over the last two decades.  It is a simple guide that only takes minutes to do.  Our users have given us feedback on the relief they are experiencing, better sleep, less anxiety, reduced anger and even better relationships.

See what others have already experienced:

“I am experiencing a serenity and greater sense of calm. I felt a soothing warmth flood throughout my body the first time I applied the techniques.”

“Helped me to relax”

“TFT is a good source for me to continue to practice daily. It’s helped me tremendously. Thank you so much!!! :)”

“…I am extremely sleep deprived and have been using TFT to help me calm down before exploding outwards at my family. I am sure my husband and children are as grateful for TFT as I am.”

“Almost immediately I felt a since of well-being. I am a massage therapist and I am excited about including this in my practice.”

“…after doing the technique the first time, I immediately felt more relaxed and focused.”

….”stress (clenching teeth to the point my whole back jaw was painful.)”

“2 days now and no pain,and no clenching plan on purchasing the self-help course in the near future.”

“…stress reduction, better sleep”

“LESS TENSION AND A SENSE OF INNER CENTREDNESS AND BALANCE WHICH LASTS BUT NEEDS TO BE RE-ENFORCED WITH ANOTHER SESSION”

“I’m having some relationship issues. I found the tapping helpful with dealing with the anxiety. I’m eating too much of the wrong foods because of it.”

“these techniques center my soul and remove negative thought patterns so I am able to focus on the things I want in my life rather than the things I don’t”

These tapping procedures can help you gain emotional freedom, relief from stress and many other negative emotions.  They are free, on our web site, www.RogerCallahan.com.  Prevent stress burnout and get your copy of our free Daily Stress Busting Program.

Dr. Callahan was asked to share his perspective on specific areas of Tapping Therapy: psychological reversal, The Nine Gamut, collar bone breathing exercise, and identifying toxins.

Here are his answers…

The panic key

Solving the Mystery; By Suzanne Connolly, TFT-Dx

At a recent Conference on Panic Attacks, a speaker presented as a fact, that panic attacks do not have their origin in past trauma.

Speaker after speaker asserted that there is currently no cure for Panic Attack Disorder.

While there are undoubtedly cases where this is true, I find that in most cases this upset in the sympathetic nervous system is rooted in past trauma and of course, with Thought Field Therapy is curable.

The following case study offers just one example.

Yolanda’s panic attacks were keeping her from her job as head of housekeeping at a nearby resort, and from her second job of babysitting her friend’s children, and from participating in life in general. She had been referred by her Physician and I began taking a history in an effort to find some specific sources of anxiety to address.

Being around small children seemed to precipitate the majority of Yolanda’s recent panic attacks. Being home alone at night, being around knives, seeing young girls at the resort where she worked, and driving at night seemed to trigger others.

The panic attacks began immediately after Yolanda had seen a news story on television where two young girls had been kidnapped and murdered. A search party had found the girls’ bodies lying in a field. The murder weapon had been a knife.

Before seeing the news story Yolanda had experienced only two panic attacks. Once while in Mexico, visiting her native village, she and her husband had taken a long drive to a forested area. It was nightfall when they finally arrived and Yolanda could not get out of the car to examine the forest.

A car had happened to be following them; Yolanda felt like she was fighting for her life as she screamed until her husband turned around and drove back to their village. She remembers her pounding heart and the feeling of unmistakable danger.

On another occasion, while visiting her mother at her families’ ranch in Mexico, her mother’s big dog attacked a neighbor’s small dog. Again: the pounding heart, the absolute terror.

Yolanda remembers nothing of her childhood before the age of nine. Her first memory is a memory of being on a bus with her mother and younger brother headed to California. She remembers everything about California: living a year with her aunt, the trips to the beach, getting toys, cloths, and attention. Everything seemed good and peaceful and normal. Yolanda tells of her year in California as if it were a story from a fairy tale.

After she and her mother and her younger brother returned to Mexico, it was different. Yolanda’s father had never accepted her. Her mother told her it was because he didn’t like girls. (But later, a younger sister was born and the younger girl was treated, Yolanda says, like a princess.)

Her three older brothers were allowed to treat Yolanda harshly. She was not allowed to eat with the family and had to go outside when everyone else ate. She would sit on the roof and look at the stars, or sometimes; she would visit the homes of neighbors who would give her something to eat. When the family was finished eating, Yolanda’s mother would make her a small tortilla filled with leftovers.

Yolanda would then clean up and do the dishes. Later Yolanda was required to cook the dinner as well. But still she would be banished from the home while the family ate. Often her brothers would throw the family cat on her food and play other pranks. Yolanda says she didn’t think anything was unusual at the time; “It was just the way it was.”

I ask Yolanda about a scar that runs up her arm. She says that it happened when she was about eighteen months old. Her mother has told her that her brothers accidentally cut her with a knife. Her mother had reportedly heard Yolanda yelling and when she found Yolanda, there was blood running down her arm.

Yolanda and I wonder aloud if this could be related to the anxiety round knives that appeared after she watched the tragic news story on the television. Read more

We’d like to share a video from the Fly Fearless program in the UK, that uses TFT to overcome the fear of flying.

We’ve had great success with those suffering from this phobia.. including Whoopi Goldberg.

17 participants on the Fly Fearless flight take to the air after their seminar, which included a Thought Field Therapy.

See how they do…

The video was done by Michael Comyn of Fly Fearless in Ireland

Virgin Atlantic also has a fear of flying program in the UK – you can register for the Flying Without Fear here.

This year starts off with continued change for the world, and also for Thought Field Therapy. The need for alternative therapy has never been greater, and we continue to see thousands of new people each month coming to our website to get help with stress, anxiety, fear and trauma.

In 2011, we focused on expansion of our live training programs throughout the world, for both the personal use of TFT as well as the use of TFT in helping others. This year, we are expanding to the Spanish language in Mexico, Spain and South America.

We’ve also created new products and training for all levels of TFT. The ATFT Foundation, continues to provide humanitarian relief, research and education around the world. We’ll also be releasing the ATFT foundation documentary demonstrating the model for large-scale trauma relief using TFT.

Now that I am confident in the future success of TFT, I’ve decided that it’s a good time to make one last change.

After sharing TFT with the world for over 32 years, I’ll will be stepping back from the day-to-day operations to enjoy spending more time with my 8 grandchildren, and pursuing my hobbies of reading and enjoying the outdoors.

I’ll continue on as Chairman of The Board for Callahan Techniques, and will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operations of the company. My wife and partner, Joanne, who has worked with me the past 23 years, will continue to keep TFT growing. I am fully confident that Joanne, and our the team of exceptional TFT trainers and advisors,  will continue to make Thought Field Therapy the leading tapping therapy.

As a retirement gift, the TFT staff gave me a booklet called “The Past & Future of TFT” that was touching, to say the least. I thank all of the practitioner and trainers who submitted stories in the booklet.

I would like to share it with you.
