WHAT IS IT? EFT is a refreshing new approach that allows rapid freedom from the effects of trauma, anxiety, anger, fears, phobias, cravings, depression, anxiety, stress, and other emotional issues. In essence it is a psychological version of acupuncture except that instead of needles, clients stimulate relief stress points by tapping on them with their fingertips. This provides a meridian “balancing effect” that replaces emotional distress with a form of peace.
OTHER FEATURES ARE:
· the results are usually long lasting
· the process is relatively gentle
· Most clients can apply the techniques to themselves, although the use of a skilled therapist is recommended
· EFT often provides relief for physical pain, headaches, and addictive cravings
We are still learning why EFT and similar energy psychology methods work so well. The existing theory is that “ the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” EFT balances the energy system by tapping on acupunture points while focusing the mind's attention on the problem or concern.
