Emotional Freedom Technique "EFT"

Emotional Freedom Technique "EFT"

 

Emotional freedom technique (EFT), is an alternative therapy for anxiety, post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other conditions.  Developed by founder Gary Craig, tapping on different parts of the body helps balance energy and reduce physical, emotional and mental pain. 

 

EFT Tapping helps us tune into the negative patterns that we have formed around our uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back.  By tapping on the correct body points while thinking and speaking about these troubling thoughts, memories or emotions in brings it into our consciousness so we can resolve the issues that were buried.

As with acupuncture and acupressure, tapping involves the body's energy meridian points, which are a concept in Chinese medicine. Proponents believe them to be areas of the body through which energy flows.  In this theory, blocks or imbalances in the flow of energy lead to ill health. 

Tapping on these meridian points with the fingertips restores the balance of energy to resolve physical and emotional issues.  It can also work in a similar way to mindfulness, as it can draw a person's attention to their body and breathing. It may serve as a mental distraction from the issues that are causing anxiety or stress.

What can I expent from my visit?

1. Identify the issue - What troubles are you seeking to heal? In this step I will assist in identifing the core issue 


2. Test the initial intensity - What is your intensity on the issue you would like healed? You will rank the intensity on a scale of 0–10 called the "Subjective Unit of Distress" or SUDs Level. 

 

3. The setup - We will then decide on a "set up statement" that acknowledges the issue at hand.

 

4. The sequence - Once we've completed the set up, we will then begin tapping in sequence the meridian points on the body.

5. Test the intensity again - Once the sequence of tapping has been completed, we will then retest your SUD's level. Ideally, this will have improved. Our goal is to reach a ranking of zero. Repeat the process until the intensity reaches 0.

Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.
