Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress – emotional first aid.
What is EFT
Emotional freedom technique (EFT), also known as tapping is a mind/body tool that clears physical blocks from your energy system. Tapping is also described as acupuncture without the needles and is a crossover between acupressure and physiology. EFT is the ultimate tool for self-improvement and is one of the quickest ways to heal any kind of trauma, physical and emotional destress.
How does it work
By tapping on acupuncture points on the meridian lines and focusing on the issue, sensations or feelings allows us to connect with our sub-conscious mind. The effect is immediately calming, allowing us to be present and switching off the fight or flight part of the brain, creating balance in your energy system to treat pain. It is simple to learn, can be done anywhere and can be taught easily to children as well as adults alike. You can apply it to any physical, emotional or spiritual stumbling block and is a quick easy way to reprogram our subconscious mind.
