The cause of all negative emotion is a disruption in the body’s energy system.
Gary Craig, founder of EFT

What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Meridian Tapping as it is also known is a powerful way of freeing negative emotions that can have an effect on our mental and physical health. These negative emotions and emotional stresses can cause imbalances in the body which are revealed as pain or illness and also in emotions such as fear, anger, frustration and depression. The purpose of EFT is to work on the unresolved issues and old traumas that can cause emotional and physical pain. It can therefore support our personal development, our attitude, reduce stress and restore our life balance.

We can all be affected by negative thought patterns and unpleasant experiences which can be the result of past emotional stresses, trauma or more recent experiences. Some of our life’s stresses can be the result of work related issues and family and relationship problems which can lead to anxiety and depression or take the form of physical pain. This happens because the emotions experienced are stuck rather than dispersing which enables the experience to continue to impact on our lives. If you can imagine a dam preventing water from getting through, these are your unreleased negative emotions and experiences. Once the dam is removed the water is able to flow freely, clearing any stagnant energy and enabling good health.

How does EFT Work?

Negative thoughts and feelings both emotional and physical often lead to pain, anxiety, fear, anger, phobias, depression and sadness. The effects of these negative emotions can disrupt our body’s natural balance.  Emotional Freedom Technique is a very gentle and effective way of helping you change the way you think and feel about the stresses you have experienced. Together we work on clearing the emotions that are holding you back.

EFT works by balancing the body’s energy system whilst focusing on a particular issue and negative feelings and thoughts.  While focusing on the issue and negative thoughts and feelings, specific acupuncture points are tapped. During the tapping process we repeat particular and relevant statements which enable the subconscious mind to clear the negative thoughts and emotions connected.
