The Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT (often known as Tapping or EFT Tapping), is a healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs to improve, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way.
Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede our natural healing process.
In many cases, EFT can be applied directly to physical symptoms for relief without exploring any emotional contributors. However, for the most powerful, longest lasting results with EFT, I will help you to identify and target the related emotional issues.
The EFT premise also includes the understanding that the more unresolved emotional issues you clear, the more peace and emotional freedom you will have in your life, limiting beliefs can disappear, personal performance can improve, relationships become stronger, and it can improve your physical health. It is a fact that probably everyone has at least a few emotional issues that hold them back.
EFT Tapping Often Works Where Nothing Else Will
EFT combines the physical benefits of acupuncture with the cognitive benefits of conventional therapy for a much faster, more complete treatment of emotional issues, and the physical and performance issues that often result.
EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture, except we don't use needles.
While related to acupuncture, EFT does not use needles. Instead, there is a simple two stage process where we (1) mentally "tune in" to specific issues while (2) stimulating certain meridian (acupuncture) points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips.
Properly done, EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and thus often reduces the conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours. The basic Tapping process is easy to learn, can be done anywhere, and can be used to provide impressive do-it-yourself results
Scientific Validation of EFT
EFT's foundation comes from a common sense blend of Acupuncture and Mind-Body Medicine, both of which have decades of scientific studies supporting them. Their effectiveness has been so profound that prestigious institutions such as Stanford, Harvard and many other universities, clinics and hospitals have chosen to use and/or study them. Just do an internet search for terms such as "Mind Body Research" and "Acupuncture Research" and you will be exposed to the huge warehouse of scientific studies that validate the EFT Tapping underpinnings.
Further, many peer reviewed EFT Tapping studies have been completed.
