Get in touch with Dr. Michael today to learn how to use EFT to its full advantage at home to manage your emotions and your own life more effectively
Welcome to the East Midlands EFT Centre from Grantham.
Michael is an EFT Master Practitioner and Accredited Trainer’s Trainer since the 90’s.
He was one of the first therapists to be using EFT this side of the Atlantic.
As an holistic therapist, he first introduced EFT to clients in London in 1996 and has lots of experience of this work !
Michael has and still does contribute to its development and evolvement.
He has always worked from a strengths-based, solution-focused and creative model.
Michael continues to practise EFT in Grantham and on-line to empower people.
EFT is an easy to learn technique to address emotional, physical or spiritual issues combining affirmations to focus the mind and physical stimulation to alleviate unwanted:
Dr. Michael offers EFT sessions from Grantham either face-to-face, or on-line with Skype or by telephone worldwide.
Sessions typically last an hour, although initial appointments often last up to an hour and a half, and some people prefer hour and a half sessions thereafter.
How does tapping help ?
“The combination of tapping on certain acupressure points on the body in a specific sequence, as the client verbalises their own wording connected to the problem (often helped by me to get the best words and right focus), causes a change in the brain’s chemistry that allows the emotional blocks to be released, as the brain’s amygdala which is responsible for, and defines and regulates strong emotions reduces. At the same time, the hippocampus increases which controls emotional memory recalling and regulation, and the finding of solutions.
In other words – negative emotions are reduced and reason and logic increased.
Translating that simply into a TCM or Yogic perspective (where both recognise the existence of an energetic life force) – what happens when we do EFT is that we encourage vital energy or ‘chi’ to circulate through the body. This free flow of energy begins to settle in the abdomen, the area of the dantian (The Energy Centres of Chinese Medicine), the seat of life force energy in the body.
The concept of dantian has roots in Taoist and Buddhist traditions and is believed to be related to higher states of consciousness.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) – dantian are considered by some to be essential for cultivating health and wellness on a subtle level.
When you bring your chi down from your head into your dantian using EFT, this activates the parasympathetic nervous system and decreases anxiety. You will feel calmer and more logical allowing for a recalibration of things, and internal emotional and psychological programming and processes to heal and repair.
This subsequently allows for psychological growth and development to take place to restore and promote health and well-being.
We are able to see and feel things from a different perspective.
Clients often report sensations or waves of warmth and movement through their bodies while doing EFT especially in session work with me”.
When measured against the standards of the American Psychological Association’s Division 12 Task Force on Empirically Validated Treatments, EFT is found to be an “evidence-based” practice for anxiety, depression, phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
EFT is often used as an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. EFT is rooted in an understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Martial Arts and the Chinese understanding of chi (also spelt Qi) – or life force – and its pathways through the body like breath and blood.
The idea of a vital life force energy and its role in our health can be found in many cultures.
In Yoga and Ayurveda, this life force is described as Prana or “vital principle” .
Like EFT, various other practices including Qigong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Pranayama (the practice of breath regulation), Acupuncture and Marma Points Therapy which is a traditional Ayurvedic massage technique that’s thought to help assist the flow of energy throughout your body – all work positively to support the free flow of chi or prana. They all work on strengthening chi or prana and removing any blockages, and freeing the energy.

Michael was one of the founding members of the Association for Meridian and Energy Therapies (The AMT / Guild of Energists).
The AMT / GOE was formed specifically to safeguard this extraordinary and emergent field from it’s inception back in the late 90s.
This included keeping the definition of Meridian Energy Therapies or MET’s wide open to include not only the currently developed applications which includes EFT and “Energy EFT” and developing approaches, but to encompass future developments with structural ease, thus fostering an attitude of continuing growth, exploration and innovation within this field.
It contains and continues to contain the most up to date techniques and approaches for the mastery of EFT which are techniques for translating improvements for all people in their lives through vibrant energy-sensitive healing modalities developed and being developed in the rapidly expanding field of “energy psychology” or “power therapies” or “MET`s”.
EFT is a way of working that is clinically observed to consistently help with a wide range of psychological and psycho-spiritual issues and has the full potential to help and heal anatomical and physiological conditions showing you how to understand and work with your body’s reservoir of electromagnetic and more subtle energies to increase your vitality, to identify and correct energy imbalances that keep you from being at your best, enhancing your health and your state of mind.
It will be interesting over the next few years with the ongoing scientific research with EFT and epigenetics, neuroplasticity, and psychoneuroimmunology (PNI).
Psychoneuroimmunology is a branch of medicine that studies the interaction between psychic processes and the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems in the human body.
As well as Memory Reconsolidation where the brain’s natural, neural process can produce transformational change marking the permanent elimination of an acquired behaviour or emotional response – and how it will all evolve !
The future is exciting in the research, and development and evolution of EFT and the benefits EFT and the MET’s do and will provide in our health and wellbeing going forward. I intend to resume professional trainings of EFT in the Autumn of 2022.

Positive EFT is the further stage in the development of energy work. This is about helping a client more fully.
It teaches you how to bring yourself into a positive way of being / feeling that you never thought possible through discovering new insights to brighten up your life with more positive energy aligning you with the principles of the Law of Attraction.
The energy of our thoughts (positive or negative) attracts experiences of the same energy to come into our lives or manifest within them.
This is an evolving aspect of EFT that I often introduce to professional Sports people and Olympians as well as Media people particularly – they are out there to perform !
Indeed, EFT’s success and strength for improving sports performance has been lauded by many athletes. I have taught many of them EFT myself, and witnessed it many times from them over the years since 1996. It gets them “in the zone”.
Positive EFT is a true gift to give to yourself and others.
This is “must have information” for everybody who is interested in the Advanced Patterns of EFT which are fine tuning mechanisms, special tools for special circumstances and best considered to be add-ons to the mainstay of the Classic EFT Protocol usage such as The Story Protocol, The Keyword Protocol and other basic EFT techniques.
All to help people who want to have a life with more joy, health, abundance, success, and love …
Surrogate Tapping or Proxy EFT.
What is it? The situation is that you are doing Surrogate EFT when you tap on yourself for another person’s issue, or you are working with Animals or your beloved Pets whether or not any of them are present. (Animal / Pet EFT)
Behavioural change in a person or an animal or your Pet remotely does initially positively challenge one’s understanding of all that is possible when you use EFT in this way.
However, this is another very exciting element of EFT understanding, development and evolution of the MET’s shared by Elevated Therapy with clients, and the subject of powerful borrowing benefits which always points us towards higher levels of healing, ultimately adding to our health and wellbeing now and in the future.
Michael is a trained and accredited Metaphysician in the UK and USA. Therefore he also deals with the first principles of things such as spiritual healing, awakening or growth. He has much to say on the topic, and readily shares this knowledge with clients when asked about this or other aspects of EFT in EFT Training and Personal EFT Sessions at Elevated Therapy from Grantham in Lincolnshire.
