What is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)?
The practice consists of tapping with your fingertips on specific meridian points around the face and hand. At the same time you are talking through issues which bother you that you are looking to understand, or change. This could be a traumatic memory, or a wide range of emotions which are causing you a problem and could be holding you back.
Tapping is simple and painless. It can be learned by anyone. And you can apply it to yourself, whenever you want, wherever you are. It’s less expensive and less time consuming. It can be used with specific emotional intent towards your own unique life challenges and experiences. Most importantly, it gives you the power to heal yourself, giving greater control over your life.
A new EFT technique to change your relationship to your past and dramatically transform your physical and emotional health in the present.
How does EFT work
The basic technique requires you to focus on the negative emotion at hand: a fear, or anxiety .
A bad memory, an unresolved problem, or anything that’s bothering you.
While maintaining your mental focus on this issue, use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times each on 9 of the body’s meridian points. Tapping on these meridian points – while concentrating on accepting and resolving the negative emotion – will access your body’s energy, restoring it to a balanced state.
According to Dr. Dawson Church, “Acupoint tapping sends signals directly to the stress centres of the mid-brain, not mediated by the frontal lobes (the thinking part, active in talk therapy).” Because EFT simultaneously accesses stress on physical and emotional levels, he adds, “EFT gives you the best of both worlds, body and mind, like getting a massage during a psychotherapy session.” In fact, it’s EFT’s ability to access the amygdala, an almond-shaped part of your brain that initiates your body’s negative reaction to fear, a process we often refer to as the “fight or flight” response, that makes it so powerful.
Think of your amygdala as a personal alarm system. When you experience trauma or fear, the amygdala is triggered and your body is flooded with cortisol, commonly known as the “stress hormone.” This intricate chain reaction – your stress response – significantly influences and
sometimes even causes whatever it is that troubles you, whether that’s an illness, injury, emotion, or even an external problem such as an issue with a friendship.
It’s estimated that 10 million people worldwide have used tapping.
