Research back ground: Panic Point -outside of fist between wrist and first knuckle. This is the parasympathetic -"calming" small intestine meridian. Also called Karate Chop in EFT and the Magic Point for the kids.
In 2004 I was trained in all 4 levels of Thought Field Therapy (TFT) through Roger Callahand, PhD, therapist whose acupuncturist friend taught him 8 points to use that stopped phobias resistent to talk therapy.
Then I found Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), the "second generation TFT", by Gary Craig, an engineer whose goal was to spread his very effective EFT world wide. He taught everybody, children to grandparents, college degrees NOT required. EFT did spread world wide. Dawson Church, PhD has demostrated EFT's statisical effectiveness in improving 'ptsd'/pts in active duties, their spouses, veterans, lowering the stress hormones and documentation that EFT causes trauma clearing and a prolonged improvement (by 2012).
[There continues to be some back-lash from traditional talk therapists about the meridian energy assistance that transforms these patients. Many talk therapists, by their own professional guide lines, are not 'allowed' to touch their patients' bodies.]
Finally I studied under Donna Eden, Energy Medicine for Women 2nd ed,; Alberto Villeajo,PhD : James Jealous, OD and Linda Tellington-Jones; all highly 'gifted' energy healers. At all of these energy training conferences presented by experts in the field there were never any other gynecologists, and rarely even a general practicianer.
