EFT Emotional Freedom Technique
What is Emotional Freedom Technique? What is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is one of the new "energy therapies" like acupuncture, shiatsu, kinesiology and reiki that unblock the flow of energy as it travels through channels in the body called meridians. Emotional memories are attached energetically to our experiences. Negative emotions are easier to recall generally than positive, especially anger and hurt.

white flower EFT is an effective technique that has been used on issues and symptoms such as anger, fear, panic attacks, low self-esteem, addiction, anxiety, relationship issues, insomnia, grief, trauma and abuse, PTSD, lack of motivation, chronic physical pain and many others.

How EFT Works
EFT combines acupressure, (gentle fingertip tapping on acupuncture points), while you think about the problem. Once you identify the issue we reframe a negative experience, emotion or pattern into a positive affirmation or outcome. The blocked energy gets moving again and rebalances the energy systems in the body. This then can relieve the overwhelming negative reaction and leave one feeling calm, balanced, stable and whole again.

The Development of EFT
EFT was founded by a man named Gary Craig, and is based on the 5000-year-old Chinese energy system on which acupuncture is based. It is the same system that Qigong meditation is based on.

Emotional Freedom Technique is something you can learn to do on yourself, and use it to help family members and friends. It is very gentle and can be used on children.

If there are highly charged or overwhelming emotions involved, and if there is a history of physical or sexual abuse, it is recommended you see a psychotherapist trained in EFT. It is best in these circumstances to do the treatments in ongoing psychotherapy. It is one of the techniques I use in my practice, along with Frequency Specific Microcurrent PTSD and other emotional protocols, and gigong meditation (see these links on my site). Always consult with your medical doctor before changing any medication routines.
