Amazing New Technique Allows Students and Job Seekers to Take Exams Free of Anxiety. Learn How to Overcome the Number One Issue Burdening Most People Who Fail Exams. (San Diego, CA) Standardized tests are a fact of life in elementary school, high school and college. Employment application tests are a fact of life in the job market. Most test-takers feel some anxiety before exams, and that is to be expected. For many people, tests are serious stumbling blocks. No matter how prepared the students are, or how hard the the test-takers have studied, their minds go blank at test time.

Now, on September 19th, 2009, Lynn Whitmire C.Ht. and Dr. Laura Hershey reveal the se rets to a simple do-it-yourself acupressure tapping technique called Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is being used by students and job applicants around the world to reduce and even eliminate test performance anxiety before and during exams and job interviews. The procedure takes just a few minutes, and they claim an 80 percent success reate.

Test anxiety can have as many symptoms as a physical illness, including headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hot flashes, cold sweats, shortness of breath, rapid heart-beat, dry mouth, dizziness, and even fainting spells.

The most widely used methods for treating test performance anxiety include: test preparation, practice, developing good study habits, remembering to eat, sleep and exercise on a normal schedule, maintaining a positive attitude, and learning relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation.

"All of these can make a difference", says Los Angeles physician Eric Robins MD, "but when someone feels anxious, his or her sympathetic nervous system is firing off, producing th rapid pulse, sweating, and other symptoms that are associated with test anxiety. I think this shunts blood away from the frontal lobes of the brain, which is where much of our thinking , processing, ant test-taking ability comes from. In an exam or interview situation, this is a problem."

"In my practice, I have worked with hundreds of students and I have found that EFT is an even more effective way of empowering you to overcome test anxiety than hypnotherapy." said Lynn Whitmire C.Ht.

EFT works by restoring the body's flow of energy and blood circulation. Emotional Freedom Technique brings people back to the physiological state they were in when they learned the material in the first place. The theory of state-dependent learning says that people are able to retrieve information more easily if they are in the same state as they were in when they learned the material. If you were calm and relaxed while studying, it is difficult to retrieve information when you're in a state of panic. EFT quickly restores you to the ideal place for state-dependent learning to work.

Even though EFT is a new technique, it has an impressive track record in allaying performance anxiety triggered by everything from SAT tests and college boards to athletic performance.
