The recent bombing in Beirut left many dead, injured, and traumatized.  The after-effects of this kind of event can be far-reaching and long-lasting.  Sharing TFT’s trauma relief tapping sequences can begin the healing process and dramatically improve the quality of life of all those affected.

Our TFT Algorithm and Diagnostic level trainer, Abeer AlOsaimi, from her healing center, Nafas Center, in Kuwait has done just that, begun the healing process for so many.  They provided TFT algorithm trainings for nearly 800 Lebanese professionals in conjunction with the Organized Psychological Support Campaign “Nehna Haddak” in Lebanon.   These professionals are in turn starting to heal their communities.

I am amazed at the case studies being submitted for their certification process.  They are helping fear, anger, panic, PTSD from the bombing for so many victims.  Some of the victims are still in the hospital, others are living in the community, without homes or family.

Below is an example of the difference the simple TFT trauma algorithm can make in the lives of those who have suffered trauma.  Mireille Youssef, Clinical psychologist, gave me permission to share her cases.  We sincerely hope that this will help inspire others to share these healing tools.
