Emotional rescue

Stress relief specialist Sheryl Stanton presents an upcoming introductory seminar on the Emotional Freedom Technique.

It’s been described as a therapy that shows you how to dig yourself out of a hole of misery and despair.

The Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a combination of ancient Chinese therapy and modern psychology that involves tapping pressure points on the body to release blocked emotional energy.

Stress relief specialist Sheryl Stanton presents an upcoming introductory seminar on EFT.

The True Cause of Your Problems and How to Eliminate Them is a three-hour session that aims to help participants understand the true causes of their stress, fear, and anxiety.

Stanton says the world tries to address addiction and self-destructive behaviour without resolving the underlying emotional problem that caused it in the first place. When the source of the pain is addressed, the person no longer needs to engage in their addictive behaviour to numb their pain.

Stanton, an RN with 38 years in the field, has studied complimentary health and healing, and calls EFT the most powerful tool she’s found to eliminate negative emotional conditioning.

Most people blame others for their stress, she says.

“The truth is that most of us are completely blind to the true causes of our problems,” she says. “That knowledge is buried in our subconscious or below conscious mind. And it is our subconscious mind, with its negative emotional conditioning, that controls us. Until that conditioning is eliminated, nothing is going to change your life.”

The session takes place Tuesday, Sept. 20 at Northwood United Church, at 8855 156 Street in Surrey. The cost is $20 for those who pre-register and $30 at the door.
