EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) often known as “Tapping”
EFT can help reset our personal energy systems in relation to a specific problem/issue by shifting our thoughts, feelings and our bodily regresses like stress and tension.
Often referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include lack of confidence and self-esteem, feeling stuck anxious or depressed, or the emergence of compulsive and addictive behaviours.
It is also now finally widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease and for this reason, these techniques are being extensively used on physical issues, including chronic illness with often astounding results. As such these techniques are being accepted more and more in medical and psychiatric circles as well as in the range of psychotherapies and healing disciplines.
An EFT treatment involves the use of fingertips rather than needles to tap on the endpoints of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive and works on the ethos of making the change as simple and as pain-free as possible.
EFT is a common-sense approach that draws its power from Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years. In fact, Albert Einstein also told us back in the 1920's that everything (including our bodies) is composed of energy. These ideas have been largely ignored by Western Healing Practices and as they are unveiled in our current times, a human process is reopening itself to the forgotten truth that everything is Energy and the potential that this offers us.
EFT has provided thousands of people with relief from all manner of problems and conditions, often in startlingly quick time and after long and painful periods of searching for a cure. The diversity of successful treatments have ranged from trauma and abuse, phobias, self-sabotaging behaviour patterns, to deep-set emotional conditions of anxiety and depression, addictions, physical illness, to name but a few.
How does EFT work?
Working on its discovery statement that:
"Our negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body's energy system"
EFT works to clear such disruptions and eliminate the resulting emotional response or intensity to restore emotional harmony and offer relief from physical discomfort. This is done by focusing on the specific problem whilst tapping with fingers on the endpoints of energy meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering and focusing on root causes, facilitates a "straightening out" of the energy system thereby eliminating the "short circuit" to the body's learnt response or negative emotion.
