How Many EFT Sessions are Needed to Clear an Issue?

EFT expert, Gene Monterastelli, asks and answers this important question.

How long does someone need to work with EFT on their problem before they can have a reasonable expectation of being “done” with the process? Obviously the answer to this is not an easy one, and “one size” does not fit all.  I think you’ll be interested to see the many possibilities that can present themselves with regard to the length that an EFT treatment needs to take to be effective.  I find this an excellent discussion and direct you to listen to Gene’s podcast on this subject.

My commitment in life is to help people open up to the infinite possibilities that are within their own selves. I would like to see you break through the barriers that prevent you from becoming the vital and meaningful being that you can be once you are free of your hampering inner blocks.

To do this, I have developed a number of cutting edge tools in the energy psychology field that have produced remarkable results in the past, and I am now standing by to help you become far more than you dreamed you ever could be in the same way I have helped thousands of others to achieve this goal.

The Complete Meditation System





The Book of Meditation, by , Ph.D. has been hailed as a classic in the field of modern meditation and is the leading book on the use of meditation for purposes of therapy. This book combines pioneering scientific research with sound psychological theory to debunk the myths and show how individuals can make meditation an integral part of their everyday life.

This book answers many very common questions about meditation, such as, "Are some mantras really better than others?"

Is it possible to meditate too much? (And if so, how much is too much?)

Is there scientific evidence that meditation induces more creativity?

Can it make you less productive?

These questions and many more are answered in The Book of Meditation; answers not derived from tradition or what Dr. Carrington learned from her teachers, but rather from compelling evidence and controlled experiments.

How to Relax CD by Dr. Patricia CarringtonHow many times during your day can you lie down in a quiet place with your eyes closed? It's good when you are learning to relax – as a first step — but not for everyday of relaxation.

This is the premise under which my How to Relax audio was developed, after Random House contacted me some years ago to produce an audio on relataxation as part of a self-improvement audio series they were launching.

The How to Relax audio differs from most other relaxation trainings in that it does not teach you how to relax while sitting or lying down, but while you are in action. It shows exactly how to relax unessential muscle groups while retaining tension in those muscles used especially for a particular activity. This is what a skilled athlete does, or an animal loping along at high speed. The result is an unusually useful training that can benefit us all.
