What is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a great self-help tool which helps to clear physical and emotional blocks in your life. It is an effective way of helping you to deal with things that have caused stress, anxiety or trauma without having to talk through and re-live painful events.
How does EFT work?
It is really simple to do and it enables you to release the emotional charge that is associated with your situation. It works on the principle of meridians. These are the energy channels which run along the body, and is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Instead of using needles to balance the energy like acupuncture, we tap on the meridians instead at specific points along the meridians using the fingers. It looks strange but it really does have a lot of benefits.
What can EFT help with?
EFT can help with all kinds of things, mainly anxiety, stress, anger and things we are scared of. It can also help us with physical symptoms, like back ache, PMS, stomach ache, and emotional issues such as confidence building, cravings, and so on.
Who can have EFT?
Anyone can have an EFT session, even children. There are no side-effects and it does not interfere with any medication you may be taking, or anything like that.
As with any therapy, the best way to see if it works for you is to try it and see.
