Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT):
EFT is a quick and simple method of reducing the intensity of traumatic events. It uses two common psychological techniques 1) Exposure (reliving the traumatic event) and 2) cognitive restructuring (self-acceptance) combined with tapping on acupressure points along your face and body. The tapping calms your brain as you "walk" through the traumatic event. EFT is sometimes known as acupuncture without needles.
EFT is now available in the South Plains area! Contact the VRCG to find out how you can be helped.
Warriors are programmed to believe they can tough out any situation (soldier on) and if they can't solve the issues by themselves, then it can't be solved. This just simply isn't true, and your life becomes immensely better with treatment!
