Emotional Freedom Techniques
Emotional Freedom Techniques is a psychological acupressure technique based on the ancient Chinese Meridian Energy System. Around 5,000 years ago, the Chinese made a discovery regarding a complex system involving energy circuits running throughout the body.
These energy circuits are referred to as meridians. Meridians are the focus of Eastern health practice and lay the foundations for modern day acupressure, acupuncture and other forms of healing techniques.
EFT Tapping Points
EFT involves tapping near the end points of energy meridians in your body. The general principle behind stimulating the meridian points in the body is the understanding that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. By tapping on locations where several different meridians flow, we can release unproductive memories, emotions and beliefs that cause blockages.
EFT uses much of the healing process from the meridian system the Chinese developed thousands of years ago. Acupuncture primarily focuses on treating physical ailments whereas EFT also addresses and relieves emotional issues as well. EFT combines the cognitive benefits of conventional therapy with the physical benefits of acupuncture but rather than using needles, the meridian points are stimulated by tapping on them with the fingertips.

Unlike most other therapies, it is very unlikely that you will experience an abreaction using EFT. Whilst there may be varying degrees of emotional intensity during the work these are resolved and incorporated within the body of the work at the time and as a result dissolve rapidly and easily.
It has been found that once an issue has been resolved the results are usually lasting. When they are not it is not that the EFT hasn’t worked, but that there are other aspects involved that have not been detected by either the client or the therapist. Once these remaining aspects are resolved using EFT the issue will disappear.
