Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem - whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. -- and voice positive affirmations.

The working philosophy is based on the belief that a traumatic event or situation causes a disruption in the body’s energy system as well as well as an emotive memory. Targeting and clearing the disruption with EFT moves the emotive experience and feeling related to the event or trauma. Once the disruption in the energy system has been resolved, then the individual is free from the emotional fear or pain and this offers a long term solution.

The work in practice does not involve reliving the painful experience and a good practitioner will be able to administer the technique with relative simplicity. The technique offers compassion in its use and does not usually involve long or numerous attending sessions.
