Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT or Tapping can best be described as an emotional form of acupuncture – without the needles. Instead of placing needles in these acupressure points as in traditional acupuncture, these points are stimulated by ‘tapping’ on them with our fingertips. The tapping is combined with modern psychology, because as we tap, we also talk focusing on challenges, fears, phobias and problems. When we focus our brain on the problem, we trigger the stress response in the brain, however as we tap on the acupressure points, the tapping sends calming signals to the brain. Through talking and tapping, we retrain and rewire the brain.
EFT has been reported to be effective for fears, anxieties, phobias and traumas, and removing limiting beliefs which prevent us from achieving our fullest potential. It also has reported benefits for physical symptoms including pain relief, including migraines and allergy symptoms. An EFT session will start with a detailed consultation, relief can often be found after one or two sessions, however more sessions may be needed if underlying issues are discovered. EFT combines wonderfully well with my other therapies.
