This Disclaimer contains important information to share with you and for you to understand. Please be advised of the following:

The information contained in the Coaching Section of this website, including ideas, suggestions, techniques, articles, methods, social media postings, classes, ezines, resources, and other materials is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological diagnosis, treatment, or advice.

You understand by viewing the Coaching Section of this website you will be introduced to an integrative approach to personal development and wellness that incorporates a variety of innovative energy-oriented coaching and self-help techniques within the field of complementary and alternative medicine, including Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Healing Touch, and Applied Kinesiology, (collectively the “CAM Methods”). The CAM Methods refer to a variety of mind-body approaches, energy techniques, processes, and methods that work with selected aspects of the human energy system, including but not limited to, meridians, acupoints, radiant circuits, chakras, and the biofield. The CAM Methods are designed to assess where the body’s energies are blocked or not in harmony and then correct and balance the flow of these energies, thereby aligning the body’s energies to boost health, vitality, and restore the body’s natural energies.

Specifically, EFT uses the ancient Chinese meridian system with a gentle tapping procedure which stimulates designated meridian end points on the face and body while saying specific phrases and focusing on issues of emotional intensity in order to release the intensity and reframe the issues. The prevailing premise of EFT is that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.  It is believed that EFT helps clear these disruptions, thereby restoring the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies. Applied Kinesiology, also known as “muscle testing” is designed to access the wisdom held in the client’s body and to identify where energy flow is blocked and to find the very best points to focus on in order to restore proper energy flow. Healing Touch is an energy technique in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and well-being of the client. The theory of the CAM Methods is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering well-being. 

Although the CAM Methods appear to have promising mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health benefits and there is a growing amount of scientific research indicating that EFT is an effective evidence-supported technique, especially for managing stress, they have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, the CAM Methods are considered experimental and the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risk and benefits, are not fully known. Please be advised the CAM Methods are self-regulated and the state of Maryland does not license practitioners of the CAM Methods and considers them to be alternative or complementary wellness approaches.
