Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also known as Tapping, is a healing technique that combines Chinese acupressure points tapped with the fingers and modern Psychology. Tapping switches off the body's stress response, helps to release negative emotions and beliefs kick starts the healing process. It is the most powerful technique I've experienced in 25 years working as a therapist to release tension, fear, anxiety, trauma, phobias, pain, fibromyalgia and a host of mind/body conditions.
Clinical research has shown that tapping these points stops the release of cortisol, a stress hormone. When we deactivate the body's stress response, whilst at the same time acknowledging difficult feelings, beliefs and memories, it helps change our physiology and how we feel.
EFT is a fast, effective self-help tool and with clinical guidance can be effective for both emotional and physical issues.
Introductory EFT can be taught in private sessions, can be included in a 90min massage session or given as a workshop to groups.
EFT is beneficial for controlling emotional eating and weight loss, quit smoking, low self esteem, exam stress and improving sports performance.
