Emotional Freedom Techniques
Granted, to those unfamiliar with the wonders of EFT, it can seem all sorts of bizarre. Tapping on your face while talking out loud is not usually accepted behaviour in polite company. However, more and more research is evidencing its efficacy. (And you don’t have to do it in company – unless you want to).
“The funny thing is, it actually works…”
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is often described as an emotional version of acupuncture, except there are no needles involved. Instead, we use a simple process where we mentally ‘tune in’ to specific issues while tapping on certain meridian points on the body. Properly applied, EFT seems to balance the meridian system and often reduces more conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours.
EFT has been clinically effective in thousands of cases for trauma & abuse, stress & anxiety, fears & phobias, depression, addictive cravings and hundreds of physical symptoms including headaches, backaches and other body pains. Properly applied, over 80% achieve either noticeable improvement or complete cessation of the problem.
EFT is remarkable because:
- It often helps where nothing else will.
- It is usually rapid, long lasting and gentle.
- There are no drugs or equipment involved.
- It can be easily learned by anyone.
- It can be self applied.
The EFT process is very gentle. It is easy to memorise and use, and can be used anywhere. The technique is safe for adults, children and animals.
There are so many ways you can use EFT. People I have personally worked with have lost phobias, generalised anxiety, pain, weight, unwanted habits and ways of thinking. In return, they’ve gained peace of mind, self-love and confidence.
If you have yet to try EFT, it can be life changing. If you have big stuff to deal with, including traumatic memories, it’s recommended you don’t go this alone and you should seek the support of an accredited Practitioner.
EFT was developed in the early 1990s, in America, by Gary Craig, a Stanford Engineer.
