What is EFT or Tapping?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique (sometimes called Tapping) and in essence is an emotional version of acupuncture, except we don't use needles. Instead, we stimulate certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. EFT is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Stanford Engineer Gary Craig developed EFT as a self-help tool for people struggling with painful emotions that traditional medical and psychological treatments had been unable to help. It is said that intense negative emotions, if not processed and dealt with, can get stuck in our energy body. Long term stress and bottled up emotions can lead to disease. We need to find a healthy way to recognise and get rid of our negative emotions so they don't get stored in our mind-body system and affect our health. This method can be used on or taught to any age, It can control emotions or temper and relieve pain. It has almost instant results and has been shown repeatedly to reduce the conventional therapy process from months or years down to minutes, hours or a few sessions. What can I use EFT for?
