Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT (often known as Tapping or EFT Tapping), is an energy therapy and universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way.
Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body. EFT combines the physical benefits of acupuncture with the cognitive benefits of conventional therapy for a much faster, more complete treatment of emotional issues, and the physical and performance issues that often result.
While related to acupuncture, EFT does not use needles. Instead, we use a simple two pronged process wherein we (1) mentally "tune in" to specific issues while (2) stimulating certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips.
Properly done, EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and thus often reduces the conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours. EFT can be an ongoing process that we use to clear out the old traumas, and welcome any new challenges with a healthy, productive attitude. EFT is useful in many areas including:
- Chronic pain
- PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
- Weight Issues
- Painful memories
- Limiting beliefs
PTT (picture tapping technique)
The Picture Tapping Technique is a recent application of conventional EFT. It combines the power of EFT with the power of imagination and artistic metaphor to release problems in a painless and indirect way. PTT does not replace EFT.
It does nothing that EFT cannot do on its own. However in certain situations it is less traumatic for the client and sometimes faster resolution can be achieved particularly when the issues are global in nature or when the client is reluctant to talk about their issues directly.
Properly done, PTT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and thus often reduces the conventional art psychotherapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours. The Picture Tapping Technique is useful in many areas where the issue is non-specific or “global” in nature. For example:
"My family situation"
"My blocks to success"
"The karma from my past lives"
"My immune system"
"My money worries"
"I'm not good enough"
