Emotional Freedom Technique
WITH CASEY VANPUTTEN, MA, LSC-CERTIFIED EFT PRACTITIONER
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) also known as “tapping,” is a simple yet effective tool that reduces stress on the body immediately. When certain acupressure points are stimulated by a person tapping on them, the amygdala (the brain’s stress alarm) is turned off. This allows the brain to think differently and more positively about stressful events.
INDIVIDUAL EFT SESSIONS AVAILABLE. COST $75
As a mom of two kiddos, Casey began to really struggle with her own anxiety. She decided to explore outside the box techniques for healing both trauma, and just the everyday stress we all endure on a daily basis. Once she began applying EFT to her own life, everything changed for her and she found it so empowering that she became inspired to share this amazing tool with others.
Casey has earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in school counseling, and maintains her license for school counseling. She has been trained in all three major EFT organizations (EFTUniverse, ACEP, and AAMET) and is an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner through AAMET. She is also currently studying Matrix Reimprinting, Shamanic Reiki, and different healing techniques involving essential oils.
“I had the pleasure of meeting Casey this past week, and she introduced me to EFT. I've seen tapping mentioned here and there on random threads on the internet, but I myself never took the time to look into it or the therapeutic effects it can have on a person. Casey and I chatted via email before my session, and she gave me some background info on EFT and kind of what to expect. I gave her a rundown of my past: counseling, anxiety, panic attacks, no memories of certain traumatic events in my life, and she simply responded with "you sound like the perfect candidate." I smiled. I had a really good feeling about this. During the session, Casey was warm, inviting, and present. I felt extremely comfortable delving into issues from my past that I had difficulty discussing with past therapists. She explained everything I was going to do and she taught me to tap out my emotions well. It was so smooth, so surreal to feel the feelings literally bounce around in my body. We were working on anger and I had tension in my gut. I tapped it out. I then had tension in my lower back. We tapped it out. I then felt buzzing and burning in my left knee, and we tapped it out. All of the tension disappeared. She taught me how to tap so that if/when they came back, I could tap them out. I thanked her a million times and left the session feeling so LIGHT and so WONDERFUL. I went to work that afternoon only to realize that the sinus pressure I had been dealing with all summer was also gone. I thought it might have been a coincidence, but 5 days later and still zero sinus pressure. I can't thank Casey enough for teaching me the tools to let these feelings GO. I felt anxious in traffic recently, and I just started tapping away my feelings. I can't believe how effective and QUICK it is. I love knowing that I have the tools to heal my anxiety and let loose the trapped feelings that are stuck in my body.
I highly recommend that everyone try EFT. I can't explain it enough how light I've felt all week. I feel like the energy in my body is now free flowing and I feel, free! I think FREE is the best word to pinpoint how I've felt all week.
Please please do yourself a favor and contact Casey. She is so sweet, so authentic, and so easy to sit and open up to. If traditional counseling hasn't worked for you, then you are the perfect candidate. If you want to ease anxiety, then you are the perfect candidate. If you just feel "stuck" and you aren't sure why, then you too, are the perfect candidate. Seriously, just make your first appointment and change your present, forgive your past, and feel free in your future.”
