The EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) commonly known as Tapping, is a mind-body technique that combines light acupressure meridian tapping while processing symptoms, emotions, events, and beliefs to quickly free restrictions in the body's energy system.
EFT Tapping can help break your cycle of racing thoughts and emotions around pain or distress. Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, calls it “emotional acupuncture”. Tapping on specific points stimulates the energy meridian points in the body to facilitate the release of energy blocks. In Chinese medicine, there are 12 energy meridians channels throughout the body. These meridians can experience disruptions through blockages where unresolved subconscious emotions can be held.
Emotional and physical stress creates blockage and miscommunication in the body, which can be a major factor of illness or unsettled emotions. Since emotions are felt throughout the body, effects such as headaches, indigestion, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, constipation, and others are indications of stress and imbalance. Balancing the meridians helps the body to do what it is naturally designed to do.
Tapping can reduce and even eliminate the charge from physical symptoms, emotions and events, and can help to release the subconscious holding patterns that may be creating discomfort. Simply tapping around the emotions and memories, like for instance an accident, injury, or specific pain, can create measurable relief. Tapping is not a substitute for conventional medicine, but it is a proven, simple, and effective tool for healing.
Through a gentle tapping procedure, EFT is designed to clear the blocks in your body's energy system. One of the most important things you can do for your health is to decrease stress and clear emotions that are held in the body. EFT works in harmony with the body. Experiencing more peace, more feelings of being centered, improved sleep, more self-confidence, and relaxation are a few of the wonderful side effects of integrating EFT into a session. EFT is also a great tool to use on your own to clear stress reactions which greatly reduces stress in your body.
