Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress - commonly referred to as “Tapping". Based on both ancient Chinese principles of acupressure and modern psychology, Tapping concentrates on specific meridian endpoints - areas of the body energy flows through. These pathways help balance energy flow to maintain your health because any imbalance can influence disease or sickness. Acupuncture uses needles while EFT uses your fingertips to apply pressure. We tap while saying certain statements focusing on what’s bothering us. This sends a signal to the amygdala - the fight or flight response of the brain.
Tapping is an easy to learn self-healing tool which helps calm the nervous system, restore the balance of energy in the body, and rewire the brain to respond in healthy ways. It has been proven to effectively address a range of issues - anxiety, chronic pain, stress, and so much more.
