So what is EFT?
EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is a process that we use to get rid of emotional imbalances in the energy systems of the body.
It is a form of psychological acupressure and involves using your fingers to tap certain areas face and body which is how it gets its other name ‘tapping’.
The tapping points used are based on the same energy meridians that have been used for the last 5000 years in traditional acupuncture but of course instead of using needles you use your finger tips.
So if you can imagine when you have an upsetting or traumatic event occurs – your body goes into a tenseness – unless that tenseness is resolved that ‘zzzzt’ stays within that energy system or meridian.
I have loved and used eft For over 20 years and studied TFT the original technique developed by Dr Roger Callahan, which was simplified to EFT by one of Dr Callahan’s students Gary Craig.
One of its brilliances is, (yes I made up that word) and it has many, you can’t get it wrong.
Doesn’t matter if you get the tapping points mixed up, it still works
You can tap out the negative but can also tap in the positive, which is so great, you don’t even have to know what you’re doing and it still works ….
My particular favourite tapping points are the hands, face, collar bone and heart space.
I don’t use any sequence or points in particular, it really depends on the client what they are there to work on and what is going on during the session.
It is also safe to use on kids. I have had some incredible results with kids especially with nightmares and it’s an easy technique to turn into a game.
There are no contraindications for EFT – another tick. And you can use it every day on yourself or your family.
These finger points are perfect for when you are sitting in a meeting or are feeling anxious in public as they can be done discreetly under the table
If for some reason it’s not working there is generally what is called a secondary gain going on. By that I mean the behaviour you are trying to soothe is benefiting you in some way and you subconsciously don’t want to give it up.
But that is cool as I have a plethora of other techniques to work that out.
The originators of TFT/EFT claimed it was caused by either toxins in your environment or reversals of energy but it is now generally recognised the secondary gain is preventing the technique working, once that has been established and neutralised the technique is good to go.
