What is Certification?

Answer: Certification is a voluntary process  provided by via an organization that through its qualified advisory boards develops comprehensive and quality standards for the practice of a type of specialty. The developed standards address high quality requirements for the practice of a certain specialty. The defined standards outline educational and/or practice requirements, any required prerequisites, and the need to adhere to a defined code of ethics for the practice specialty. Certification is different than any type of licensing. Certification is one means by which professionals may be publicly recognized as achieving a high level of education, knowledge base and practice skills for a certain healthcare related specialty. Certification also assists employer organizations and clients in their assessment of appropriate qualifications for candidates seeking positions in organizations and/or involved in private practices. It is commonly held that certification through an organization is fast becoming a “gold standard” for specialty practices. Certification testifies and provides a verification of defined educational requirements, adherence to a solid code of ethics, and in many instances prerequisites of practice experience for the practice in a variety of fields.


What Are the Criteria/standards I Will Need to Meet to Achieve Certification?

Response: The educational criteria and standards are well and clearly defined within our website. Please access our main page to preview these requirements. access here.


May I Apply for and Be Conferred Certification if I Have Been Practicing as an Eft Practitioner in a Clinical Setting or Private Practice With Out They Need to Meet the Educational Requirements of Your Program?

Answer: No. The Board that oversees the development and approval of defined criteria and standards for certification will not consider only practice experience as meeting requirements in full. This decision was made as those who are already in consulting practices have varied and different experiences related to EFT and Meridian Tapping practices and instruction and there is no insured uniformity that all who have practiced EFT and Meridian Tapping have the same knowledge base and skills attainment. The evaluation of one’s past practice experience in EFT/Meridian Tapping is highly variable and subjective. As such, the Board has developed objective criteria/standards for the conferral of certification. For these reasons, practice experience without the attainment of education will not be considered as fulfilling criteria and standards for our certification.


Over the Years, I Have Completed Many Seminars and Continuing Education Courses Related to Eft/meridian Tapping Practice and Interventions. Will These Apply Toward the Education Requirements for Certification?

Answer: Please send in any transcript for review to determine if they can be utilized and an AIHCP course waived. You can contact us here.


What is the Major Practice Focus of a Certified Eft/meridian Energy Tapping Practitioner?

Answer: a Certified EFT/Meridian Energy Health Tapping Practitioner is one who is well educated and trained in energy work. They work with the body energy system in a holistic way to assist clients to re-balance their energy systems and to remove blockages within the energy system, thus re-establishing energy flow and healthier states of being. They work on the theories and premises of humans as energy beings who are seeking a homeostasis of a balanced energy system in order to experience good health in body, mind and spirit. When the energy systems are unbalanced or have blockages in the free flow of energy, poorer health states occur. A primary area of EFT and Tapping work is based on many years of work related to negative emotions and the body’s energy system. They work on the Discovery Statement by founder Gary Craig that all negative emotions are due to a disruption in the body’s energy system. As such, EFT/Meridian Energy Tapping Practitioners are trained to work with many EFT/Tapping methods and protocols to assist clients in dealing with negative emotions and concomitantly removing energy blocks from the energy system and re-establishing a more free flow of the body’s energy, thus bring the energy system back to hemostasis. This homeostasis results in much better health in body, mind and spirit. Again, the EFT Practitioner is working with Body Energy. They work with the clients as coaches, teachers, mentors, facilitators and more. EFT/Meridian Energy Health Tapping is a therapeutic modality on to its own with a growing body of evidence based outcomes. Practitioners also participate in demonstrating the effectiveness of EFT/Meridian Health Tapping and contribute to the fast growing body of knowledge in this specialty domain and practice.


Where Do Eft/meridian Energy Tapping Practitioners Practice?

Answer: Certified EFT/Meridian Energy Health Tapping Practitioners practice in many varied settings today. More and more people everyday are seeking out information and instruction on EFT and Meridian Tapping, as a daily wellness practice. Over the past decade medical science and research has well documented the role of “stress” in creating negative health effects on the body/mind/spirit. EFT has been shown to be highly effective in assisting in the resolution of many stress related symptoms and in significantly reducing risk factors for developing stress related disease. It is fast gaining in popularity for the complimentary treatment of many emotional and mental health disorders and also as a complimentary and adjunct care modality for many physical and pain related issues as well. It is being incorporated into holistic care models and integrative medical practice models throughout the world. Many psychologist, psychiatrist, professionals counselors, social workers, mental health nurses, crisis interventionists and other health care professionals are using it very successfully in their clinical practices. As such you can see it being used in private practices, wellness clinics, in corporate stress management programs, in community social agencies, and we are seeing practitioners now going into the school systems and teaching it to school children to help them reduce stress levels. It is also being used in family and marriage counseling practices. EFT/Meridian Energy Tapping Practitioners can be found anywhere health care is being offered today.
