What are Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)?

Emotional Freedom Techniques is an energy healing practice which is easy to learn and simple to use. Energy flows through the body using a system called Meridians. When this energy flows freely, we feel good and all is well with the world.

However, when this flow of energy is blocked, we can feel stuck and everything seems to be going wrong.  This creates negative feelings such as fear, anger, anxiety or stress, phobias or even a physical ailment such as unexplained aches, pain or illness. These blockages, the thoughts or feelings that stop us doing something, are known as limiting beliefs. We can recognize them as a lack confidence, low self-esteem or compulsive, addictive behaviour and these cause dis-ease in the body.

Every thought or feeling we have ever experienced, is stored in our bodies energy system, the good, the bad and the ugly!  These beliefs may go back years, possibly even lifetimes but they may not be true for us anymore.  Although we are not comfortable with them anymore, we are afraid to let them go because we have always had them.  That’s where EFT can help to identify beliefs, question why we believe them and let them go.

EFT is on ongoing process, much like peeling an onion one layer at a time.  The more unresolved issues you can clear, the more peace and emotional freedom you will have in your life.

Limiting beliefs and old trauma can vanish, self-confidence can soar, relationships can flourish and grow. A greater sense of wellbeing is possible, so you can welcome new challenges with a healthy, positive attitude.


So, how do Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) work?

How we think or feel about anything, has an emotion attached to it and emotions are very powerful. Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is possible to uncover the emotion behind it.

Emotional Freedom Techniques is simply tapping on acupressure points on the head and upper body (as shown in the graphic below) whilst focusing on these negative emotions. Tapping the meridians helps to break down blockages, reducing the intensity of the negative emotions and replacing with positive ones. It really is that easy and once you learn the techniques you can use them anytime you need to, no matter where you are.

I would recommend working with an Accredited Certified Practitioner in the first instance and for ongoing support.
