"The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system."

What is EFT and How Does it Work?
EFT is Emotional Freedom Techniques, a non-invasive, emotional version of the ancient practice of acupuncture.
Our bodies are equipped with a subtle energy system which travels along pathways known as meridians. Acupuncture has been used for many thousands of years to stimulate this system using very fine needles on specific meridian points; having deep and profound results on the mind, body and spirit.
With EFT rather than using needles, meridian points on your hand, head, face & upper body are stimulated simply by tapping on them.
When our body’s energy system becomes disrupted we experience physical or emotional symptoms.
A negative experience occurs (physical, emotional, psychological)
Negative emotions are felt in response to the negative experience
The body's energy system is disrupted and becomes imbalanced
The negative emotion is carried in an imbalanced self
Some physical ailments can be psychosomatic, a manifestation of deep negative emotional issues. Negative emotions co-exist alongside a disturbed energy flow throughout our body. The imbalance must be restored along with healing any negative emotions and beliefs.
EFT helps to calm the nervous system, rewire the brain to respond in healthier ways, and restore the body’s balance of energy. When we re-balance our bodies energy system we boost our ability to heal and regenerate. By alleviating any stress or tension we have relating to a physical or emotional issue, the symptoms subside.
The scientific basis for EFT revolves around the functions of a part of the brain called the amygdala. The amygdala is part of the brains limbic system and is the source of emotions and long-term memory. Tapping in sequence on the meridian points while tuning into the emotion, thoughts and feelings and verbally or mentally addressing the root of the issue you are wanting to resolve or overcome, engages both the amygdala and the body’s energy system and acts as a circuit breaker to diffuses the emotional trigger. The result brings about a more appropriate emotional response and belief regarding the given situation.
EFT is a relaxing therapeutic intervention that relieves physical and emotional pain and collapses toxic memories and disempowering limiting beliefs. It is a quick and effective way of restoring balance and stimulating the body to recover from emotional and physical issues by altering the body's energy field, unblocking the flow, releasing the negative or restricted energy and therefore allowing positive energy to flow through.
EFT makes full use of the mind-body connection, acknowledging and integrating the concepts that physical pain, disease, and mental wellbeing are intricately connected to our emotional states. It is a simple and painless technique, can be learned by anyone and you can apply it to yourself whenever you want, wherever you are. It can be used with a specific emotional intent towards your own unique life challenges and experiences.
In recent years there’s been undeniable research proving the efficacy of EFT. Clinical trials performed around the world, including Harvard Medical School, continue to show that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional barriers or distress. Once they are reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself.
EFT has been proven to be effective in:
Resolving unwanted feelings
Overcoming limiting beliefs
Overcoming self-defeating behaviours
Overcoming strong emotions
Overcoming fears and phobias
Reducing stress and anxiety
Pain and tension relief
Getting rid of headaches
Seeing a new perspective on situations occurring in your life
And so much more….
The EFT premise also includes the understanding that the more previously unresolved emotional issues you can clear, the more peace and emotional freedom you will have in your life.
EFT gives you the power to have control over your emotions and beliefs and take your life back into your own hands.
EFT can work effectively with adults and children.
"Some day the medical profession will wake up and realise that unresolved emotional issues are the main cause of 85% of all illnesses. When they do, EFT will be one of their primary healing tools .... as it is for me."
