What is EFT?

EFT is a powerful yet simple self-help acupressure method used to balance energy in the body. Research shows that stress, tension and emotional trauma contribute greatly to disease. EFT is able to rapidly reduce tension and the impact of memories that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can rebalance itself and the ability to heal is naturally accelerated. When EFT is properly applied, over 80% of clients achieve noticeable improvement or complete cessation of the problem.EFT has been shown to be effective in thousands of cases treating a wide range of emotional or physical issues for example;

  • stress and anxiety
  • fears and phobias
  • depression
  • children’s issues
  • physical symptoms including headaches and retained pain

Benefits of EFT

EFT is surprising.
It is sometimes difficult to explain EFT and most people “get it” through an experience. It can clear old traumas cleanly and thoroughly and many people notice physical ailments also start to fade. Headaches, back pains and other discomforts may reduce or vanish as emotional issues are released.

EFT is Easy to learn
EFT can be used by everybody – young and old. We all have the tools we need at our fingertips. In EFT we use words to tune into a specific aspect of a problem whilst tapping on acupressure points to clear it. Once you learn how to use EFT, you can practice it alone whenever you need to and achieve excellent results. You may choose to use EFT with a tapping partner or in a group setting. It is possible to gain benefit from working within a group whilst still keeping the issue to be worked on private. For complex or deep seated issues it is best to work on a one to one basis with an experienced practitioner who will help you to remain focused and offer insight if you become stuck.

EFT provides a way to manage day to day stress
When under pressure, a few rounds of EFT provide an ideal way to help you feel calmer, think clearly and act resourcefully. Everyday stress may take fewer tolls on your system once you have this potent stress-reduction tool at your disposal. EFT can easily be taken out of the therapy room and used in day to day situations.

EFT is Versatile
You can apply EFT to just about everything. You can use the same basic procedure for your fear of public speaking as you do for improving your golf score. EFT has shown successful outcomes for many emotional issues, including fear, trauma, depression, and prolonged grief. The reason it works for so many different issues is that there is an element of emotional tension or stress in nearly all our problems and it is that component on which EFT works best.

EFT limitations
Like any other stress-reduction method, EFT is not perfect. It is not a universal panacea, and it does not have a 100% success rate, but it usually works reliably. Case histories show that the results can be spectacular – a wide selection of case histories can be found at www.eftuniverse.com EFT can often achieve substantial relief with little or no pain. However some people have issues so intense that the mere mention of them causes emotional or physical pain; gradually this pain can ease as the issues are worked through. In such cases, one-to-one sessions are recommended rather than group practice.

Note: If you have emotional or physical problems it is essential that you consult your doctor or mental health practitioner. EFT is not a substitute for medical or mental health treatment. Please share your experiences with EFT with your healthcare providers.
