Mind-Body Healing Is Beneficial; Treatment with EFT Made Hayley Nissen Feel a Sense of Calm and She Was Able to Release Her Pain


Byline: Hayley Nissen

IT may sound the same, but EFT has nothing to do with Extra Sensory Perception or Electronic Funds Transfers - it's more uplifting than that.

So when I started asking Heather about how the whole process works - because it was a little difficult for me to get my head around at first - she suggested giving me a basic session about a few issues that I had been having.

I started off by telling her what had been bothering me and any physical ailments I was feeling.
