WHAT IS EFT?
EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique is a fast and efficient technique which aims at returning the mind and body to a harmonious state so that we are free of negative emotions. It involves tapping on various points of the body and saying certain words. It is like acupuncture without the needles, we tap with our fingers on various points on the body to release negative thoughts. We tap on the acupoints but we also say the words of whatever pain or negative emotion we are tapping out in order to clear it from the body and mind simultaneously.
It is a technique that can be taught quickly and is invaluable as a self help tool so that we can balance and remain free of unwanted emotions and pain. It is similar to talking therapy, but with a physical component that helps it go deeper and faster.
Studies have shown a 97% success rate in clinical trials.
EFT is used for a wide range of issues including:
Post Traumatic Stress
EFT combines stimulation of the ancient Chinese meridian energy system with modern Western talk therapy.
It begins with the assumption that the experience of negative emotions is the conscious awareness of disruptions in our subtle energy systems. EFT combines talking about a specific issue or emotion whilst tapping with the finger tips on key points on the body’s meridians to rebalance the energy.
Shifting energy changes the way our brains process information about a particular issue. So tapping while tuned in to the issue is like rewiring or re-routing the brain’s conditioned negative response. It changes both feelings and thinking.
Part of EFT’s appeal is that anyone can learn it and use it for themselves. Yet its simplicity is, in a sense, deceptive. For it lends itself both to this simple, effective self-help and to sophisticated depth work on complex issues with skilled and experienced therapists.
Therapists with no experience of EFT are often concerned that it does not provide insight. Those who use it frequently would argue exactly the opposite. It lends itself beautifully to reframes. Even better, once the emotional static has been removed from the system clients often make their own spontaneous reframes. It also lends itself to practitioners bringing to it the learning and skills they have from other places. NLP, hypnotic language, an understanding of reframing all particularly enrich EFT work.
