The World Tapping Circle is an entity of The Sophia School of Living Arts, LLC and respects an individual’s right to personal privacy.
The Sophia School of Living Arts, LLC collects and uses information through its websites, including worldtappingcircle.com, only in the ways disclosed in this statement.
The statements on this page apply to information collected and expressed on all The Sophia School of Living Arts, LLC websites, including The World Tapping Circle and accompanying website pages (collectively, "The Website").
The viewers of The Website, subscribed members, product customers, and other viewers who read The Website and elect to use EFT are collectively "The Viewer."
Part 1: Information Transmission & Viewer Use
The information contained on The Website, including ideas, suggestions, techniques, videos, products and other materials is:
Transmission of the information on this website is not intended to create, and receipt does not constitute, a client-practitioner relationship, or any other type of professional relationship between the visitor and Sonya Sophia, or between the visitor and any member of Team LOVE, and it should not be relied upon as medical, psychological, spiritual, coaching or other professional advice of any kind or nature.
Part 2: What is EFT?
By viewing The Website, you are introduced to a modality identified as Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, or Tapping, which is categorized as a type of energy therapy.
EFT uses the ancient Chinese Meridian System to balance the body's energy system with a gentle tapping procedure which stimulates designated meridian endpoints on the face and body while focusing on issues of emotional intensity to release the intensity and reframe the issues.
The prevailing premise of EFT is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering overall wellbeing.
EFT is believed to work with imbalances within the person’s energy system and to address the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions on the body.
While EFT can be used within a therapeutic setting with professional healthcare providers, EFT is solely presented on The Website as a self-help tool to be used at your own discretion.
Part 3: Viewer Discretion with Use of EFT
There is a distinction between “healing,” as described on The Website regarding the use of EFT, and the practice of medicine, psychology, or any other licensed healthcare practice. EFT is self-regulated and is considered as alternative or complementary to the healing arts that are licensed in the United States.
While Sonya Sophia, the founder and owner of The Website, has extensive experience in the healing arts, she is not a physician, psychologist, psychotherapist, or other licensed healthcare provider. The services she, Team LOVE, and The Website offer are not licensed by the State of Texas or elsewhere in the United States.
Any information about EFT, as presented on The Website, is not intended to represent the use of EFT to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any medical problem or psychological disorder; nor is EFT intended as a substitute for seeking professional healthcare advice.
Viewer is strongly advised to seek professional advice as appropriate before implementing any protocol or opinion expressed on The Website, including the use of EFT, and before making any health decision.
Part 4: Release of Liability
Although EFT appears to have promising emotional, spiritual, and physical health benefits, and there is a growing amount of scientific research indicating that EFT is an effective, evidence-supported therapy, EFT has yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, it may be considered experimental.
Due to the experimental nature of EFT, and because it is a relatively new healing approach and the extent of its effectiveness, as well as its risks and benefits, are not fully known, Viewer assumes and accepts full responsibility for any and all risks associated with viewing The Website and using EFT as a result of viewing The Website.
Viewer agrees and understands that this Disclaimer is intended to be a complete, unconditional release of liability and assumption of risk to the greatest extent permitted by law.
Part 4: Viewer Competency
If Viewer chooses to use EFT, Viewer represents and warrants that Viewer is a competent adult, able to understand the nature and consequences of using EFT.
Further, Viewer understands that if Viewer chooses to use EFT, it is possible that emotional or physical sensations or additional unresolved memories may surface, which could be perceived as negative side effects. Emotional material may continue to surface after using EFT, which may indicate that other issues may need to be addressed. Viewer understands that previously vivid or traumatic memories may fade, which could adversely impact your ability to provide detailed, legal testimony regarding a traumatic incident.
Viewer agrees to seek immediate professional care if Viewer inadvertently experiences distressing or adverse reactions while using EFT.
Part 4: Responsibility of Content
Any stories or testimonials contained on The Website do not constitute a warranty, guarantee, or prediction regarding the outcome of an individual using EFT.
Viewer understands that The Sophia School of Living Arts, LLC makes no warranty, guarantee, or prediction regarding the outcome of an individual using EFT for any particular purpose or issue.
While all materials and links to other resources are posted in good faith, the accuracy, validity, effectiveness, completeness, or usefulness of any information herein, as with any publication, cannot be guaranteed.
