EFT helps the mind and body by combining the elements of modern psychology with ancient Chinese acupressure to resolve challenging issues and emotions.
We focus on the specific problem, exploring emotions and probing memories all the while tapping gently with our fingertips on the energy meridian points of the face and body. The combination of this non-invasive tapping, whilst uncovering and focusing on root causes, facilitates the release of blockages within your energy system that cause emotional discomfort. This can provide relief for all manner of problems and conditions ranging from trauma and abuse to phobias, addictions, physical illness, anxiety and depression.
EFT seeks to help people become aware of, to make sense of, accept and express an emotional experience. By restoring awareness and trust in the natural healing abilities of our mind and body, it helps to achieve physical and emotional well-being within a fairly short amount of time. Because the techniques are so simple, they can be used effectively as a self-help tool as well, enabling us to actively contribute to our own healing process.
