The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) are 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 (and hand if necessary) while the person thinks about his/her specific problem – whether it is a traumatic event, fears, phobias, anger, depression, food cravings or physical problems – pains etc. – and voice positive affirmations.
This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the “short-circuit” – the emotional block from the body’s bioenergy system, thus restoring the mind and body’s balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.
Western medicine focuses on our bodies as a chemical system, EFT, on the other hand, deals with the energy system of the body. Several thousand years ago, the Chinese discovered a complex system of energy circuits, called energy meridians, running throughout the body. Meridians are the centrepiece of Eastern medicine and health practices. Recently, Western medicine has started to pay attention to energy flows and their effect on mental and physical health. EFT uses these energy meridians to clear energy blockages in the body, contributing to physical and emotional relief.
