What is EFT and how can it help me?
EFT, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique, is a form of acupressure therapy, which draws on many alternative therapy approaches. These approaches include acupuncture, NLP and Thought Field Therapy (TFT).
How does EFT work?
EFT works by accessing different energy points in the body, for the purpose of helping psychological and physiological issues. This is done by physically tapping or stroking certain energy meridians on the body, in order to alter poor energy flow and improve a variety of symptoms. It is through these energy meridians, that blocked energy can interfere with your ability to have a healthily balanced body and mind. EFT restores this balance and ensuring that your energy meridians stay unblocked, allowing energy to flow freely. EFT also requires positive chanting, or ‘affirmations’ as they are more commonly known, to promote positive energy flow.
What are ‘energy meridians?’
Energy meridians are certain pressure points on the body and are derived from traditional Chinese medicine, where they are considered passageways in which energy, also known as chi, flows through the body. There are energy meridians all over the body, including on the head, face and limbs.
What makes EFT different from other forms of therapy?
Emotional Freedom Technique is used to treat both psychological and physiological issues, making it different from other forms of therapy, which are often aimed at treating psychological issues. EFT uses a wide variety of principles, in comparison to other treatments which may be based on only one or two principles.
Are there any common EFT myths or misconceptions?
Emotional Freedom Technique is not acupuncture, nor is it traditional Chinese Medicine. Although these elements make up fundamental parts of EFT, they are just one part of the treatment itself. It is comprised of many different elements, making it completely unique in its approach to alternative treatment.
What are the benefits of EFT?
EFT can help with a variety of problems, including:
Negative thoughts and emotions
Attaining personal and professional goals
Can I do EFT by myself?
There are many online resources, which give you instructions on how to tap on the correct energy meridians, for the purpose of unblocking energy channels. However, as with all other types of therapy, it is advisable to consult with a trained EFT therapist, who can give proper instructions and who can tailor a treatment plan which suits your life goals and needs. You may be seeking EFT for different life issues from another person, therefore, you should always consult with a trained practitioner, who can give you the best treatment and the best results.
