About Us . . .

The Tapping Practice provides exceptional brain-based somatic relief techniques for trauma and stress-related issues for adults, educators, mental health and health care professionals. 

EFT Tapping is simple to learn and recognized by the American Psychological Association as an effective treatment for stress and trauma.


This strategy has been used successfully in over 14 countries including Rwanda, Indonesia, Japan, Haiti, Kosovo, Israel, New Zealand and right here at home in Newtown.

EFT Tapping is just as highly effective for stress resiliency, anxiety, pain relief, test anxiety, panic attacks, and a host of other physical and emotional symptoms.

Our Mission . . .

Our mission is to provide heart centered healing to adults suffering from the symptoms of stress, anxiety and trauma, restoring clients to a full, balanced and resilient way of life.

Our Training . . .

Our practitioners are all AAMET (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques) International Certified Practitioners. AAMET is the largest professional EFT association worldwide

founded in 1999 to promote and uphold standards of training for EFT.

Dr. Lori Leyden, is an internationally known trauma specialist and former Director of the Newtown Trauma Relief and Resiliency Project. She continues to be an active mentor of our practice, providing supervision for cutting edge heart-centered trauma healing. In Dr. Leyden’s words:

“Trauma is a neurological state that may manifest as chronic stress, body pains, headaches, trouble sleeping and a whole host of other symptoms. If it isn’t properly treated, trauma self-perpetuates. EFT/Tapping is a powerful tool because it re-regulates the brain dysfunction that trauma causes and allows the person to achieve a strong state of resilience. Our goal is to keep hearts open and healed not only in Newtown but in our world.”

Our practitioners are able to provide long lasting results and remarkable resiliency for our clients with this unique process. To learn more about our Dr. Leyden’s amazing work and the history of our work in Newtown visit:
