This EFT evidently was begun by a David Feinstein, who purports to be a PhD psychologist with several award-winning books to his credit, and his wife Donna Eden, a specialist in her own brand of energy therapy. Neither claims any training or expertise in any therapeutic massage modality. The only website to confirm Feinstein's academic credentials seems to be a site owned and operated by his wife.
Practitioners of this EFT claim to heal even combat PTSD with one or two sessions of talking and tapping--on forehead, back of hand, whatever--which quickly brings about emotional release.
What's more, the website claims that anyone can quickly learn to perform the same healing magic by watching EFT videos or buying Feinstein's books. His books, by the way, were all self-published.
Is this group, this therapy, this Feinstein and his wife legitimate? I'm trying to steer a fellow MT student away from this miraculous tapping therapy. Should I step aside..should I attend a training seminar with him???
