Important Note For All Users

While Emotional Freedom Coaching techniques have produced remarkable clinical results, these techniques must still be considered in the experimental stage and thus practitioners and the public must take complete responsibility for the use of it. Furthermore, Don Milton is not a licensed health professional and offers Emotional Freedom Coaching from his perspective as a life coach and Reiki Master/Teacher, and his many years of experience with various types of energy work. Emotional Freedom Coaching is a meridian-based treatment for emotional and some physical pain issues. Those who would like to discuss the use of Emotional Freedom Coaching for specific emotional problems with a professional in the mental health field may go to either or to locate licensed professionals who use these techniques in their practice.
