Tapping Practitioner Offers Services in Crestview

Jul 09, 2016 10:02AM


eborah J. Laird is now offering Emotional Freedom Technique, commonly known as “tapping,” at Body-B-Healthy, located at 2227 South Ferdon Boulevard in Crestview. 

      EFT has interrelated physical and emotional benefits, Laird says. “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. When we release emotional stress, our physical health improves dramatically. EFT combines tapping with your fingertips on specific acupressure points on your upper body while focusing on a specific event or emotion. The technique reduces the physical and/or emotional pain caused by the event or emotion, allowing the body to rebalance itself.”

    Laird received her training from EFT Universe, founded by Dawson Church, PhD, whose book “The Genie in Your Genes” explores the link between emotions and genetics. Church conducted pilot studies indicating that tapping can be an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder—a conclusion later confirmed by independent studies. His research has been featured in well-known scientific journals, and he has been featured in national media such as USA Today, CNN and BBC.  

    “Learning EFT has been life-changing for me,” Laird says. “It is an amazing, simple, effective tool to take charge of your emotions. I have completed my practitioner training under Dawson Church and am thrilled to have him as my mentor as I continue my training for intermediate and expert certifications. My goal is to help as many people as possible achieve their emotional freedom.”  

Laird’s business, Energy Balancing for Wellness LLC (, also offers LED light sessions for increasing circulation and decreasing pain, relaxation sessions using essential oils and music, and the Ultimate Personal Peace Plan.
