What is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as tapping. It is a form of energy psychology that integrates the mind and body systems to address the relationship between feelings, beliefs, sensations and behaviors.
EFT brings great hope to psychology, medicine, coaching and other human transformational practices because it is a gentle technique that is rapid, reliable, and accessible for people of all ages and with the most traumatic of experiences to address. Currently backed by over 100 clinical studies, evidence it works for a wide range of problems expands each year. Beyond use in client care settings, EFT is suitable for ongoing self-care and a lifetime of empowerment. EFT often provides significant relief when nothing else will, without drugs or need for fancy equipment, and without waiting for an appointment.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is an innovative, powerful and rapid way to:
Decrease worry, anxiety and stress
Neutralize pain and suffering from physical conditions
Achieve clarity for sound decisions, action and peak performance
Relieve emotional eating and cravings
Release troubling memories and thoughts while lifting mood
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) balances the body’s bioelectrical system by integrating ancient Chinese medicine with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT/talk therapy), neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and somatic methods.
The Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) treatment involves light tapping of the fingertips on specific acupuncture treatment points in conjunction with tuning in to the traumatic or painful issue or event. The technique does not eliminate the memory; instead, it desensitizes it, thus neutralizing the unpleasant response.
A core principle of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is the understanding that the root cause of psychological problems is unresolved emotional stress. This stress can cause physical, mental and performance issues. Therefore, it is essential to address the root emotional issues when attempting to resolve mental or physical trauma.
