Imagine Tapping Away Unwanted Emotional Pain with EFT Therapy
EFT therapy (Emotional Freedom Technique) helps you do just that, tap away emotional pain. Those who have experienced EFT tapping, report an immediate feeling of relief. Unwanted feelings or emotions can be neutralised or released within the first treatment. The cost of each EFT session is $210.00 and a typical session lasts about an hour.
What is EFT therapy?
EFT tapping, sometimes called “Emotional Acupuncture” is based on the ancient Chinese treatment of acupuncture. Eastern practitioners have a theory that negative emotions cause disturbances in the body’s energy field.
There is a key principle that many people are becoming aware of, that our feelings, beliefs, impressions, thoughts and emotions are held in place by energy at a cellular level. Experiencing intense emotions such as fear, for instance, can cause the energy flowing through the body to be disrupted. Often, it is this energy imbalance that we experience as emotional or physical pain.
EFT tapping helps correct energy imbalance by stimulating acupuncture pressure points with gentle tapping instead of needles. This is an emotion focused therapy and by tapping with fingers on the body’s energy systems, many fears and emotional problems can vanish in minutes.
Tapping therapy sends pulses through the meridians and releases the emotional charge and once the energy meridians are balanced, the emotional intensity reduces and the fear goes away.
EFT tapping therapy does not require years of analysing past issues. Certain issues may require follow-up treatments of this emotionally focused therapy, but learning the techniques is beneficial, so that you can perform such follow-ups on your own. It is easily learned and I teach my clients the tapping therapy technique for self-treatment for their specific needs, so that they may continue to help themselves.
Basic example of the emotional tapping technique
As a hypnotherapist I have found that using hypnosis, EFT tapping and the power of the subconscious mind during a session, has helped people just like you and me, make profound changes sooner then they might have dreamed of taking place.
The basic EFT tapping therapy, involves recalling a past uncomfortable feeling or emotion that is to be neutralised or released. It is not necessary to get deeply involved or to “re-live” the issue or event, thinking about it is sufficient.
Then, simultaneously while holding these thoughts in mind the tapping therapy begins, using the fingers to tap on a series of specific meridian points on the face. These points correspond to meridians used in the treatment of acupuncture and tapping on these meridians can alter the body’s energy field, restoring it to a healthy “balance”.
In most cases, people report that their distress levels, about an issue, decrease or completely disappear during the course of the first EFT emotion focused therapy treatment.
EFT tapping is effective for relief from the following symptoms:
• Fear of public speaking
• Comfort eating
• Binge eating
People who have previously used acupuncture for anxiety or acupuncture for sleep problems have found the EFT tapping therapy to be very effective in resolving their issues. After all, this tapping solution is a form of emotional acupuncture.
