EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE OR EMOTIONAL FOCUSED THERAPY
While related to acupuncture, EFT does not use needles! We use our fingertips to tap on acupressure points and we mentally “tune in” to specific issues while stimulating certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them. Properly done EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and often reduces the conventional therapy procedure from months or years down to minutes or hours.
The Body’s Energy System - The Foundation of EFT Tapping
About 5000 years ago, the Chinese discovered a complex system of energy circuits that run throughout the body. These energy circuits or meridians as they are called, are the centrepiece of Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other healing techniques.
This energy courses through the body and is invisible to the eye but you know is there by its effect.
EFT gives you striking evidence that unique energy flows within your meridians because it provides the effects that let you know it is there!
By simply tapping near the end points of your energy meridians you can experience some profound changes in your emotional and physical health. That is what EFT is all about.
Western medical science tends to focus on the chemical nature of the body and has not paid much attention to these subtle but very powerful energy flows until recent years.
EFT is the emotional version of acupuncture, as well as it is a mixture of Chinese acupressure, neuroscience and positive psychology. EFT it is a revolutionary process for healing emotions and it is at least 80% effective with just one session. You can make enormous strides by introducing EFT into your therapy instead of spending months or years on "talk therapy".
Think about some of the emotional distress/issues we go through in life such as, death, break ups, addictions, phobias, etc.. Ask yourself, how do you ever heal from that? The answer is you don’t and the reason is that we alone, do not know how. Our emotions get shoved to the back of our minds and hearts and we choose in time to just ignore them, forget and move on. But these emotions are not healed resulting in our energy system to be disrupted causing our body to feel pain, discomfort and illness.
