EFT is rooted in energy psychology, using Ancient Chinese medicine theology. Energy flows throughout our body along channels called meridians. When a traumatic event, negative psychological conditioning cause a disruption in your energy flow through a blockage or imbalance you become blocked and mental, Physical and emotional illness can arise.
Gary Craig, the founder of the EFT technique, discovered by that by tapping specific acupressure points, the meridian begin releasing the blockage and bringing your body’s energy flow back into a state of homeostasis. The most profound influences on our energy system are thoughts and emotions. Thoughts are constantly creating patterns of electrical energy, releasing hormones, neurotransmitters, and other chemicals in the body. When your brain reconstructs its cognitive processes, you no longer process thoughts or emotions the way you did before.
EFT has proven to be a useful technique for a wide variety of disorders or illnesses; in various studies, EFT has successfully treated anxiety disorders, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, addictions, phobias, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, panic, attention deficit disorder, hypertension, social anxiety, career issues, and somatoform disorders
There is a basic EFT procedure, consisting of tapping on each of eight or more energy meridian points while using an affirmation statement that coincides with a memory or a feeling. I combine EFT and Hypnotherapy many times in my sessions to help clients release old emotions and then make new decisions to live happy healthy lives.
