Emotional Freedom Technique, or Tapping is a combination of acupuncture points used with specific words that release trauma or undesired emotions. From grief, to anger, frustration, sadness, or releasing stress, Tapping works wonders and takes a fraction of the time that behavior modification, training, or therapy does.
My journey with Tapping started when my friend, Joan Ranquet listened as I recounted my deep love and yet irrational fear of horses. Not being able to be near my horses was breaking my heart, yet no matter what help I sought after, I could not overcome my deep-seated fear. Joan offered to do a tapping session for me, and I agreed. The session brought up a lot of emotions for me, but afterwards I didn’t give it much thought. A few months later I was giving a horse training to my staff and was pleasantly surprised when I realized that I had no fear or hesitation and felt confident and at ease with my horses for the first time in decades. I was so impressed by the speed and effectiveness of this remarkable healing that I enrolled in Joan’s school for energy healing and learned it so I could bring it to my clients and their animals.
Like us, animals suffer emotional trauma as well. Being taken from their mothers too young, being victim to an accident, grieving the loss of a loved one, overcoming abuse and neglect, learning to trust humans, and feeling abandoned and betrayed are just some of the things that Tapping can help heal.
The sessions are remote, and all I need is a picture of your animal, their name, gender, and age. Each session starts with animal communication so I can fully know how the animal feels and what they want. After I have checked in with them, I start the Tapping. I tap on my own face, and you tap on the animal’s. I say the words, and you repeat them as you tap. I’ll explain it so you know exactly what to do and feel comfortable. Sometimes one tapping session gives your pet the release they need to move on. Sometimes they need a few sessions as we move through layers of trauma. We can tap on your animal as often as you like.
