What is EFT TAPPING Certification?

Once you decide to attend a formal EFT training from an EFT-certified trainer, you can take one of the following two paths:

  • Using it only for your healing, growth, and transformation
  • Empower yourself and others to heal, grow, and transform

The choice is yours!

If you choose the second option, and are passionate about upgrading your EFT skills to step up as a professional practitioner, a certification after the formal training is just right for you.

EFT certification is an attestation from an internationally accredited organization. It validates your EFT knowledge and proficiency, and grants you the permission to practice it professionally.

"Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting some on yourself."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
