I was a driver on convoys in Croatia and Bosnia in early 90’s before the Dayton Agreement. It took 6 years for the PTSD, Combat Stress etc… to go full throttle on my brain, body and soul, the latter being the worst in my opinion. More than fifteen years has past and I am still fucked up, but not nearly as bad. I decided to tap on a panic attack that I had in the middle of the night. After five minutes, I felt no pain, not in my body not in my soul.
I actually fell asleep. I can only say that I tapped my way out of it. Next day, I woke up and had a great day. I am going to continue to tap and free myself from the ghosts that haunt all of us.Read More

Testimonial from Jim, a disabeled Veteran. Thank You very much for the session we had this evening. To say it was enlightening would be an understatement.

It never fails to surprise me to see how thoroughly and lastingly we can help with EFT. I hope that the following case also makes a strong argument that working with Veterans requires extensive experience in EFT and knowledge and understanding about war trauma, in addition to having done one’s own “homework”, so that the stories we work with don’t trigger us as practitioners.Read More
War has always been part of human life and history. War lives on in those who have lost their soul, their trust, their feeling of safety. War is a constant companion of those who are forced to live a life that is far removed from what they had dreamed of, planned for and deserve. And most certainly, war lives on in every Veteran and his family who doesn’t get the help to heal…Read More
Gordon, a Vietnam Veteran, suffers from insomnia and nightmares, hyper vigilance, numbness, feelings of undeservingness and low self esteem, loss of interest, lack of energy and angry outbursts.
Even though Gordon received medication from the VA, he was still haunted by traumatic memories from Vietnam, which made his life very difficult. With EFT, he relaeased the trauma of an almost fatal parachute jump.
