Palm Desert will be the location for the upcoming Brain-Body Re-training workshop for individuals and professionals seeking skills for reducing the physical burden related to emotional stress. The specific approach is known as the Emotional Freedom Techniques known as EFT or Tapping.
The popularity of EFT has been fueled by the support of cutting edge physicians such as Dr. Oz, Deepak Chopra, MD, Norm Shealy, MD and scientists/researchers as Candace Pert, PhD, Bruce Lipton and more. A growing body of peer reviewed research has shown its effectiveness for a wide variety of health conditions such as stress, anxiety, phobias, post-traumatic stress, food craving reduction and a variety of pain conditions.
The training will be offered by international EFT trainers Craig Weiner and Alina Frank, of EFT Tapping Trainings in the Seattle, WA area. EFT Tapping has gained worldwide popularity because it is demonstrating the ability to quickly and effectively reduce negative dysfunctional feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs which often create challenges in relationships, health, and work. This powerful mind-body approach draws from the fields of interpersonal neurobiology, meridian therapies and energy medicine approaches. Whether you are in a healing/helping profession or interested in helping yourself, everyone walks away from these workshops with the skills to succeed with this extraordinary healing modality.
The Level 1 workshop will take place on Friday and the Level 2 workshop on Saturday and Sunday. Professionals can earn continuing education credits. Level 1 offers instruction on how to use EFT for your own personal development, while Level 2 teaches how to use the process with others. The workshops are certified through the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) for massage therapists. Dr Craig Weiner and Alina Frank have taught and mentored thousands of individuals and professionals throughout the US and Canada and are sought after speakers and presenters in the field of EFT instruction and EFT practice development.
