Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), also known as Tapping, is a healing tool used for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) can be applied directly to physical symptoms for relief without exploring any emotional contributors. However, for the most powerful, longest lasting results with EFT, we do expect to identify and target related emotional issues. EFT can be an ongoing process that we use to clear out the old traumas, and welcome any new challenges with a healthy, productive attitude.

How does EFT work?

The basic technique requires clients to focus on the negative emotion at hand: a fear or anxiety, a bad memory, or any other aspect around an unresolved problem. While maintaining your mental focus on this issue, the practitioner will teach you how to use their fingertips to tap on specific meridian points. This means that you will quickly learn how to use EFT as a self help tool, which is very valuable. With your permissions, the practitioner may also tap on you if required. Tapping on these meridian points – while concentrating on accepting and resolving the negative emotion – will access your body’s energy, restoring it to a balanced state.

Your session will start by being shown the meridian points that will be used during the session. The session will comprise of tapping on these points while using phrases related to your issue to keep you tuned in. This will help you to have inner shifts and being able to see what happened to you from a different perspective i.e. the intensity of the emotion will drop and you might feel detached, not bothered any more from it.
