Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
EFT is gentle, invasive and completely safe. It often works where other treatments have failed and it can be effective for various purposes, including personal self-development, attitude and behaviour development, resolving personal problems, reducing stress, reducing emotional and/or physical pain and restoring life balance.
How do we use EFT?
Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, EFT works on the meridian system.
The technique itself employs stimulating the major meridian points by either tapping on them or gently massaging them. As we tap these points we also use 'positive affirmations' in order to focus on the particular issue or presented problem. EFT is a very effective yet gentle method of directly balancing the body's energy system and removing negative emotions or feelings with regard to the issue or problem being worked on.
EFT has been proven successful in various clinical cases and is fast becoming the most popular meridian therapy. Spreading very rapidly in the US and UK, the concept is now used in some specialist areas on the National Health Service.
It applies to a variety of physiological and psychological problems and is gentle enough for use with children and during pregnancy and child birth.
EFT can be used alongside Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching for fast & effective results.
What is EFT?
Termed as a ‘modern meridian therapy’, EFT is a mind/body treatment system especially designed to remove negative emotions by correcting the flow of energy through the Meridians.
The Emotional Freedom Technique concept was developed in the US in the 1990’s by Gary Craig, a Stanford trained engineer who based his developments on Dr Roger Callahan’s Thought Field Therapy (TFT).
EFT roots are in acupuncture, kinesiology and psychology.
Quite simply EFT is a form of emotional acupuncture, but without the needles. It is based on the premise that all negative emotions are the result of a disruption in the body’s energy system.
And because our physical pains and diseases are so obviously connected with our emotions it can be said that our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases.
