Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of psychological acupressure. It is based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture and treats physical and emotional ailments using simple tapping with the fingertips to input kinetic energy into specific meridian points on the head and chest. This is done while you talk about your specific problem, such as: a traumatic event, an addiction, an illness, guilt, anxiety, grief or pain. After expressing and releasing the emotion you tap in positive affirmations to reprogram the brain. EFT can be useful as a self-treatment, in a group or with an EFT practitioner for more difficult topics. In 2 or 3 private sessions clients learn the basics of tapping these acupressure points on the face and chest to release and reprogram physical and emotional pain. These techniques are empowering and can be used at home to manage stress, anxiety, or to cope with grief or release physical pain. Clients often schedule private sessions to deal with multi-layered deeper issues which they need support navigating through. ► Read Client testimonials about EFT. ► Read article: Emotional Freedom Techniques Tapping Points.
