EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), also known as Tapping, is a powerful, holistic healing technique that has been clinically proven to effectively resolve a range of issues via stress-reduction.
EFT therapy is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. Tapping with the fingertips on specific meridian endpoints of the body, while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensations, helps to calm the nervous system, retrain the brain to respond in healthier ways, and restore the body's balance of energy
The basic EFT technique requires you to focus on the negative emotion at hand - a fear, a worry, a bad memory, an unresolved problem or anything that's bothering you. While maintaining your mental focus on the issue, you use your fingertips to tap on specific meridian points of the body until the intensity of the emotion has reduced significantly.
Don't worry about 'thinking negative thoughts'! Whether you realize it or not, these thoughts are already playing on a loop in your subconscious. We have to bring up the negative in order to remove it to make room for uplifting, empowering thoughts to emerge! EFT is designed to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress, thus reducing stress in the body as well as associated stress chemicals that can create disease.
Although over 100 clinical trials have shown that EFT is effective for anxiety, depression, PTSD, pain, phobias and many physical issues, EFT is not a substitute for medical or mental health treatment.
