A certified Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or Tapping) practitioner and a certified Tension & TraumaReleasing (TRE®) provider.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or Tapping):
This involves tapping with your fingers on acupressure points while tuning in to an emotion or physical sensation. A growing body of published, peer-reviewed clinical studies proves that EFT is effective and works quickly to reduce stress, neutralize the intensity of traumatic events, and even relieve pain. Tapping has been shown to quickly reduce cortisol levels, calm brainwave frequencies, disrupt signals from the fear centers of our brain, and bring about changes in gene expression (turning "off" genes associated with inflammation, for instance, and turning "on" genes associated with health.) EFT is used effectively to address a range of issues including weight loss and food cravings, phobias, troubling memories, fears of the future, money/abundance issues, relationship problems, performance anxiety and much more.
Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE):
This involves a series of 7 exercises that stretch and fatigue specific muscles with the goal of initiating tremoring in the body. All mammals instinctively shake to discharge the stress and the ramping up of our survival physiology (including a release of cortisol and adrenaline). Unfortunately, humans get trained or shamed out of this natural way of returning to balance, and we end up holding onto all that undischarged stress and tension.
Just a few minutes of this self-controlled shaking can result in your feeling much calmer, more relaxed, and lead to better sleep, along with other beneficial outcomes. And the best part is, there's no talking or remembering involved — your body just knows what it needs to release and takes care of it.
Individual sessions and group classes available with Alison
Occasional workshops on topics including trauma, the neurophysiology of stress, the connection between emotions and disease, the gut-brain axis, epigenetics and more.
Alison is passionate about helping people reclaim their health by making friends with their emotions (even the "bad" ones), helping them reconnect with their bodies' wisdom, and helping them release resistance to and get unstuck from whatever is holding them back from living their best life.
Both EFT and TRE have been used successfully all over the world to help everyone from school children and refugees to veterans and first responders. Both target stress, tension, and trauma where it lives — in our bodies — gently and effectively.
"Emotional Freedom Techniques is a holistic, mind-body modality that blends ancient Chinese meridian therapy with modern psychology and neuroscience. EFT often amazes people with how quickly it can reduce stress, pain, and other symptoms associated with both the everyday and the extraordinary challenges of life."
"Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises or TRE® allow the body to heal itself by releasing the deeply held, undischarged tension that has accumulated in the muscles and fascia following stressful or traumatic events in our lives.The therapeutic tremoring doesn't require talking about or remembering any specific events, making this a beautiful option for those who prefer somatic vs. cognitive approaches to healing."
