EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique)

Emotional Freedom Technique, often called EFT, EFT tapping or Tapping therapy is a method used by millions of people all over the world to deal with emotional traumas, phobias, addictions, psychological blocks and physical pain. It's a cutting edge therapy that blends the Ancient Eastern evidence based treatment of acupuncture with more contemporary scientific studies in Mind-Body Medicine. The way EFT works is often referred to as 'Energy Psychology'  Psychological & Emotional  Acupressure or 'Acupuncture without needles'.

EFT helps the body undergo a physical process that enables negative emotions and psychological blockages to release. It's believed that the physical intervention of tapping on the nerve channels whilst simultaneously ‘tuning in’ to the issue is what makes this particular technique work so quickly and effectively. With EFT, as you concentrate on the stressful issue or emotion we literally change the way your body responds to stress and trauma. This technique is simple, empowering and inspiring.

How does EFT Tapping work?

“The cause of ALL negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
-Gary Craig, founder of EFT

Like Acupuncture and Acupressure, EFT or Meridian Tapping consists of a set of techniques that utilise the body’s energy meridian points. The therapy works by tapping with the fingertips on the end points of the body’s main meridians- nerve channels within the body -literally tapping into your body’s own energy pathways and stimulating healing abilities.

The points are tapped in turn as a trigger word or phrase is repeated relating to the negative emotion, target problem or physical issue. Properly applied, this process clears the ‘blockage’ or negative feelings, thus regulating the energy levels of the whole system and restoring balance.

How can EFT Tapping therapy help you feel better?

Unfortunately due to recent events and the complexity of life at the moment stress and anxiety are on the rise, people are beginning to  realise the long term negative effect this has on our minds and bodies.

New research shows that EFT Tapping releases calming chemicals in the brain, regulates the central nervous system and boosts the immune system. Due to the neuroplasticity of the brain it can be re-trained to respond to triggers in a more healthy balanced way both physically and emotionally. This is helpful for a wide range of issues. I particularly like to use it with people suffering with stress and anxiety and phobias as it can be an effective self help tool for people to use and feel empowered when they encounter additional stressors in their life.
