My name is Marika Berman, and I specialize in using the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Matrix Reimprinting to create positive changes in my clients' lives. My passion is to facilitate healing during private sessions, classes, and workshops, as well as to teach clients how to help themselves. I work from my office in Willow Glen, San Jose, California, and over the phone and Skype internationally.
Our work together aims at:
- release of STRESS, ANXIETY, ANGER, SHAME, GRIEF, FEARS, PHOBIAS, and other emotions
- permanent healing of TRAUMA
- PAIN reduction and elimination, faster healing
- transformation of negative CORE BELIEFS
- bringing balance, joy, and PEACE into life
Emotional Freedom Techniques is an evidence-based 21st century stress-relief and healing method, and together with Matrix Reimprinting offers a very effective drug-free solution to not only issues of emotional nature, but also to many chronic diseases. As a body-mind technique combining elements from Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern Psychology, it is considered a field of complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM).
EFT and Matrix Reimprinting work with the energy system of the body known as meridians, stimulating the specific points by light finger tapping. This process usually results in immediate positive changes to the client's emotional state leading to feelings of peace, relief, relaxation, and joy, in place of the former fight/flight/freeze responses. Research in the fields of Energy Psychology, biology, and epigenetics confirms that such changes significantly impact the body's gene activity and biochemistry, thus positively influencing the rate of healing, pain, and other discomforts. Some of the positive changes are significant decrease in cortisol levels, release of endorphins and neurotransmitter serotonine.

Neuroscience has shown that 95% of our daily activities are run by the subconscious mind. Our motivation, productivity, goal achieving, financial success, relationships,... they all run in large from the these unconscious automatic programs that we've downloaded throughout our lives, mainly in childhood during the first 6 years of life. They were designed to keep us safe. However, they significantly alter the way we perceive the world, and how we react to it. They become a problem if they trigger our stress response too frequently, and for reasons we no longer consciously associate with danger. The result is a chronic stress. Fortunately, there is help.
EFT is very effective in quickly relieving present stress and negative emotions. However, the biggest, lasting benefits lie in re-visiting and healing the past physical and emotional traumas, big or small, that conditioned our brains to the current fight/flight/freeze responses. It can be simply explained as a re-conditioning of the brain. The process is very gentle, yet powerful, and totally transforming. The former stress response is replaced with relaxation, and the relief is usually permanent. A series of consultations and the client's independent work are often necessary for more complex issues.
EFT and Matrix Reimprinting have been effective for a wide variety of issues, as seen from testimonials on www.EFTuniverse.com. My clients have reported improvements in the following areas:
- Emotional, mental and spiritual health: release/healing of old traumas, fears and phobias, anger, anxiety, stress, nightmares, erasing negative core beliefs, gaining a clear insight into problems, erasing resistance to positive life style changes, improved relationships, achieving personal goals, raising one's level of energy awareness, and spiritual consciousness, inner peace, and personal freedom.
- Physical health:
relief of pain - headaches, joint and muscle pain, neck pain, back
pain, faster healing of injuries (including old injuries), improvement
in functioning of the immune system (resistance to illness),
increased energy level, etc.
