Emotional Freedom Techinque


What is EFT?

 E.F.T (emotional freedom technique) is commonly known as 'tapping'.  It brings together aspects of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy and somatic stimulation (tapping on different energy points). It's been referred to as 'psychological acupuncture' but without the needles (thank goodness!).  Tapping works in the same kind of way as acupuncture by stimulating various pressure points on the face and body to relieve stress, which then alleviates many psychological based concerns.

EFT is a powerful self-applied, stress reduction technique.  

How does it work?

By stimulating certain pressure points on the body with this tapping technique, the amygdala (the stress centre of the brain) and the hippocampus (the brains memory centre) both work to switch off the fight/flight/freeze response by reducing the production of cortisol (the stress hormone).  A recent documentary series (called 'proven') voted it their number 1 stress busting technique.

Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.   It has helped people with physical pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD and other symptoms.  EFT has also been proven to work quicker and has longer lasting effects when compared to other interventions (e.g. CBT) and is preferred by those that use it.


EFT has an immediate calming effect, its easy to learn and be used by anyone (including children).
