I learned this process right after 911 and have been using it all these years to help myself and hundreds of others (probably even thousands by now). It can be used to relieve emotional traumas; abolish fears and worries in moments, shatter food cravings that sabotage our health. It often works where nothing else will; offering rapid results that are often permanent. In addition, it can be self-applied (no equipment needed)! In the first class, you learn step-by-step how to effectively use the technique for yourself and receive a handout so that you can recreate the results at home. You will use the procedure for the following week every day to really clear any trauma, sadness, anger that happens in your life. Then return to training the following week to ask questions, tweak your results, get more tips and tricks to tap your troubles away! Let’s do this!
