Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of energy medicine that combines approaches such as cognitive and exposure therapy with healing modalities like acupressure. Given recent advances in gene expression research, we hypothesize that these modalities may have positive impacts on physical and emotional well-being. In this free Noetic Global Gathering, presented by IONS Scientist Dr. Garret Yount, we will cover preliminary data from our recent study at IONS which indicates that shifts from these modalities, experienced in psychological conditions such as depression and PTSD, are associated with differences in gene expression. As part of this interactive webinar, participants will have the opportunity to try EFT in a demo/practice session led by Dr. Yount.
