EFT – A tool for Caregivers.

I specialize in caregiver support. I’ve been a nurse for forty years and I know about the load you carry. It is precious. It is exhausting. I can help you lighten that load.

The practice of Emotional Freedom Technique, also called tapping, combines gentle touch with mindful speaking of thoughts and feelings. It is performed by tapping with our fingertips on acupuncture points on the hands, face and body while focusing on an issue we wish to resolve. EFT calms the amygdala structure in the brain which facilitates the release of chemicals bringing us into a restful state. It’s a safe technique that one can learn and do on oneself anytime or it can be used by a therapist to address deeper, more complicated problems. It has been shown to be effective for a range of conditions, including job-related stress, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

A brief introduction to EFT in this video

Reiki – Rest, my dear heart.

Reiki is a Japanese technique of stress reduction and relaxation. It recognizes personal energy fields that extend beyond the body. In the western world, we don’t typically recognize these fields, but stage performers expand their energy field to extend to the back seats of an auditorium. Reiki is administered by holding the hands over the body to assist the flow of life force energy. If the life force energy is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. When it is high, we have a greater capacity for health and happiness.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.


I am Reva Rasmussen and it may sound corny but it is just so real – I am called to take care of people. It’s a wonderful calling that summoned me early in life to become a registered nurse and, later in life, to become an EFT practitioner and Reiki healer.

It may be that Centering Prayer started me on the journey of energy healing. The great stillness and the emptying effect of prayer opened me up to explore that which is beyond. I studied Therapeutic Touch and Healing Touch. I experienced chakra balance and clearing. I learned Reiki and EFT. All wonderful, energetic healing practices.

These days, I combine my 40 years of nursing – years of learning how to sit down with a stressed-out stranger, tune in and connect – with EFT and Reiki. It is a great joy to assist someone in breaking through mental and emotional blocks that have held them back from living their best life.

I can help you to clear out what is holding you back, tap into your inner strength and align with your personal goals.


Where do you practice? I see people at Holistic Gateway in Little Canada, Minnesota or I can come to your home and I go by Zoom all over!

What are EFT and Reiki good for? Both promote the consistent and unlocked flow of energy throughout the body. Both reduce stress. It has astonished me to discover the profound improvement of our health when we reduce our stress.

EFT has been used to successfully reduce or eliminate PTSD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress over financial issues, phobias and more.
Reiki treatment enhances learning and memory, promotes mental clarity, increase physical healing and lessens physical pain. Reiki is especially beneficial as a treatment for the side effects of chemotherapy.

Where’s the proof?

There are over 100 scientific clinical studies of the efficacy of EFT. Here are several:
