Tapping for Grief 
Dec. 7 from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm
Hospice Austin, 4107 Spicewood Springs Rd., Austin
Tapping, sometimes called the emotional freedom technique, or EFT, is a wonderful tool for grief. The technique uses tapping a series of acupressure points on yourself while saying specific phrases. It has been proven to bring relief for common grief issues such as cyclic, repetitive thought patterns and traumatic memories, as well as overwhelming feelings. It’s a useful and effective tool to support healing during the holidays. No cost to attend, but RSVP is requested.  Please call (512) 342-4700.
