It’s not often in life that I get the honor to meet an EFT master practitioner and a mozzarella rope maker all in one. John popped into my life right at the perfect time (isn’t it always)

John has brought this beautiful mindful practice of EFT to my life and it has created a more gentle healing process. A healing process that I continue to go through, one that is far more delightful because of John and his incredible insight into the heart (he’s a great listener).

Emotional Freedom Technique EFT and what John has taught me, is how to rewire of belief patterns that are no longer serving me. Then he guides through repatterning the new belief systems. His gentle, loving, funny bedside manner help as well because I feel so safe with him. In fact, he was able to guide me through a hypnosis process combined with EFT, TWICE!

That is huge for me given this brain of mine tends to run on massive overdrive, which I now use EFT to help calm. I cannot give John enough KUDOS for showing up in my life and giving me tools to maneuver the process. I am grateful beyond words for this incredible human being and I will forevermore changed because he cared and knows his stuff.

John is the best there is, hands down (tap on the Karate chop) Thank you John and to anyone reading this, you’ve just been blessed by meeting John Thaddeus Fiore.

Read Emily's Whole Story

Emily reported experiencing waves of exhaustion for the last 5 or 6 weeks. She needed a lot of sleep and if she did anything extra, she could be tired for a whole week. She was concerned that the condition was not improving.

At the beginning of their time together, Emily reported feeling groggy, foggy, and unclear. During the process, she felt energy shifting in positive ways.

Afterwards, hardly any of the symptoms remained. She felt clearer and as they spoke she noticed that the little remaining symptoms, which she rated at a 2, were gradually receding.

They continued with a second round of healing. Afterwards, Emily reported feeling much more clear and Jane felt that she had opened to a broader perspective.

A day later, Emily reported to Jane, "I am so grateful for the healing! There have been huge shifts. I came home today feeling energized and finished some cleaning that had been left. I have not been able to do anything in the evenings. I am looking forward to feeling like the 'old me' - alive and energized."

Five months later, Emily reported that she has continued to feel stronger and stronger. She said that the "old me" was indeed back!
