Based on the traditional Chinese medicinal philosophy (Acupuncture, Shiatsu) that emotional and physical problems are reflected in imbalances in the energy and meridians of the body, EFT relieves symptoms using tapping with the fingertips on acupuncture points on the body.
The tapping releases the emotional blockages that are created when a person is triggered by a memory of a disturbing situation or circumstance. After the blockage is released, the memory remains, but the emotional charge has gone as the system becomes balanced.
As the whole body is dynamically linked; with emotional stress creating physical problems and physical problems creating emotional stress, the balancing of any part of the system can have a dramatic effect on the healing process of the entire body.
The great benefit of EFT is it’s simplicity which means it can easily be learnt by patients so that they can take the techniques away with them and continue to help themselves at home.
