Written Words Bookstore has invited EFT practitioner Alison Held for an introductory talk on Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) on Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. Held is a clinical nutritionist and owner of Healthful Direction, a nutritional counseling service in Westport. She has had success incorporating EFT into her private practice and has used tapping to help address her client’s pain issues, digestive complaints, emotional eating, weight management and more.

From overcoming psychological trauma to healing physical ailments, EFT practitioners use the technique to stimulate the body’s energy flow and tap into its own healing power.
