Beaverton, OR – Stress has become an inescapable fact of modern life. Few of us know how to cope with our stress in a healthy way. Without an effective means to cope with our stress, it will soon take its toll on our physical and emotional health.
Sherry Rueger Banaka is a certified practitioner specializing in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), a revolutionary form of energy medicine most commonly used as an effective stress reduction technique.
EFT works by tapping on specific acupuncture points to change the way our brain and body respond to stress.
“When we are stressed, it causes a flight-or-fight response in our body, releasing cortisol and adrenaline into our bloodstream,” explains Sherry. “Scientific studies have shown that, over time, this is harmful and is a major contributing factor to many serious diseases.”
Though Sherry is not a licensed health care professional, and she does not diagnose or treat any medical or mental health condition, she helps her clients neutralize the unresolved emotions that are contributing to their problems. This is done by addressing the stress component of their underlying emotional baggage, which is typically a larger percentage of the problem than the actual condition or issue itself.
EFT tapping sends a calming signal to our brain to stop releasing cortisol and adrenaline. This changes the body’s response to the stressful event, and we now feel calm and relaxed, even while remembering that event.
“When I discovered EFT, I couldn’t believe how much it helped me and how simple and easy it is to use as a self-help tool,” says Sherry. “All that’s required is the openness and willingness of the client to apply the tapping.”
