Break Free with EFT

This week we have Catharine Ross sharing insight into Emotional Freedom Technique, how it can be used to let go of fears and anxieties but also be used as a clearing tool for old stress and traumas. I learnt a lot and am grateful to know there are people doing this work.

Enjoy the episode.

X Dr Kaz Jaffe

Catharine Ross’s Bio:

Catharine has been running a successful business in helping clients through the use of EFT and Matrix Re-Imprinting for the past 5 years. She is also mum to a 8 month old daughter who was peacefully brought into the world last October.

Acupuncture without needles

EFT stands for “Emotional Freedom Technique” and some people know it as “Tapping”. It works like emotional acupuncture, but without needles! We re balance the body’s energy and nervous system by tapping with our fingertips on certain acupressure points on the face and upper body. EFT has been scientifically validated, used by the NHS in the UK for treating anxiety and depression and is applicable to just about every issue you can think of – from self-esteem issues, grief, trauma, abuse, relationships, through to physical conditions as well including weight and chronic pain.

Catahrine’s specialty is in helping people to overcome anxiety, especially around pregnancy, labour and childbirth. I have also had great success with clearing past birth trauma using Matrix Re-Imprinting which is an advanced form of EFT.

Qualifications: AAMET Certified Clinical EFT Level 1 & 2 & Matrix Re-Imprinting Practitioner.

Idil Ahmed Quote:

You know great things are coming when everything seems to be going wrong. Old energy is clearing out for new energy to enter….be patient!”

(In)fertility, Optimal Pelvic Health and Mercier Therapy

Its Episode 3 and we have Jennifer Mercier sharing with us some of her wisdom.

X Dr Kaz Jaffe

Jennifer Merciers Bio:

Jennifer’s passion is serving women with fertility issues, pelvic pain, general wellness matters, holistic breast care and newborn/infant cranio-sacral balancing. 

Fertility challenges

During her undergraduate years Jennifer was preparing to attend medical school and at the same time was diagnosed with endometriosis and went to massage therapy school. It was a busy time indeed. In the early 90’s she worked as a clinician for the Center for Human Reproduction and learned so many amazing things as well as how broken the system really is in regards to how women are treated with fertility challenges. The cycles very rarely worked and when they did there were a lot of pregnancy losses. It started her thinking about the pelvic organs and how could we get this area to work more effectively. Especially if women were going to undergo numerous medically assisted cycles how could this process be less emotionally and physically charging?  Jennifer observed marriages end and couples second mortgage their home just to undergo one more IVF cycle just for it to fail again. It broke her heart. Years later when she decided not to go to medical school she gave it some thought on how to proceed so she could effectively serve women with fertility challenges in a non-invasive way.

Jennifer ultimately decided to go into Midwifery and trained by apprentice  in a myriad of different settings such as birth center, home and hospital. Over a span of 15 years she took care of women and their babies in a very gentle and respectful manner.

Jennifer also trained as a Naturopathic Doctor and graduated in 1999 from a wonderful program that had to close it’s doors due to low enrollment. Since graduating she’s traveled the world from the US, Caribbean, Central America, Mexico ,Canada, Europe and the Middle East studying with some amazing teachers in the field.

Jen is a healer, teacher, mother, director/producer, and practitioner.
