A Landmark Book In This Burgeoning New Field

Many therapists from different disciplines, myself among them, are discovering the power of the amazing techniques described here. I have seen clients eliminate physical pain and emotional distress, sometimes in just a few minutes, by tapping on certain acupuncture points in the prescribed way. Gary Craig, one of the coauthors, is the developer of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). In the first half of the book, EFT is described and then shown by example how it can be used for various situations, from expunging old negative emotions to achieving brand new goals. The writeup of the technique itself is explained simply enough that a layperson should be able to understand this technology. So whether someone is dealing with a "stuck feeling" or a chronic pain, and whether they apply it to themselves in a self-help way, or find a qualified therapist to assist them, learning this technique will be life-changing. The second half of the book expands on this information by including ways to energize and balance the body's health, immune system function, etc, by other energy techniques. Anyone who has read coauthor Donna Eden's excellent "Energy Medicine" will find themselves on familiar ground with the new material she was written here. While written simply enough to be usable by a layperson, this book is also usable as a resource by professional therapists, as its many examples are all of various clinical cases, some quite complex, and how they were handled. Very well written, very worth while, and a bargain at the price.

...and I thought the high standard setup by Energy Medicine book would be hard to match

Techniques included in this book changed my life for much better (and if you wonder why so shortly after the book was published, it is because some of them I have known for a longer time, from Energy Medicine (EM) book by same authors, and from other sources). What I like so much are the pictures included with every technique, that will help graps the "how to" much better than a mere textual description. Invaluable. Technically, the only thing that I miss is the index at the end of the book - it was in the EM book and it has proven to be very valuable there. The basic differences from the EM book by same authors, as I could grasp quickly: EFT (emotional freedom techniques) from Gary Craig included, pictures for each exercise (there were many pictures in EM book too, but sometimes I was confused as for the details of certain exercises, these are now thankfully included in this book), research evidence, joy circuits covered in detail (you owe them to yourself and your body!). EM book was more about energies while this one is more about personal change applications, though there is a wide intersection for sure. Scientific validations included will definitely be important for some people. I personally don't care for it too much - my validation as with everything is whether it WORKED FOR ME after I have used it - in that respect saying I'm SATISFIED is an understatement. There are books by authors that are good at writing. Others are experts in their field. Some others are just inventors but lack when it comes to spreading their message. Donna Eden, David Feinstein and Gary Craig are rare authors in respect of a unique trinity of skills: being gifted as teachers (authors and spreaders of the message), inventors and experts (and doers) all together. Pure diamond.
