The theory behind EFT is that negative emotions are caused by disturbances in the body’s energy system. By tapping certain acupuncture points on the meridian system with your fingertips, it removes these disruptions caused by stress, trauma or other negative influences.
EFT is a simple and fun technique that can be applied in all walks of life – after a quarrel with a colleague or partner, stress before and exam, a headache after a long day of work or for deeper and more long- lasting problems, such as fears and illnesses.
Our past cannot be changed, but we can work on our emotional responses to it. EFT removes those triggers that make us repeat certain patterns in our lives and keep us from moving forward in the present. These triggers can manifest in many different ways such as fears and phobias, addictions and illnesses. EFT helps to clear these blockages and thereby allows us to feel better, both emotionally and physically.
Because of its simplicity it can be applied to just about anything, from fear of public speaking, sleeping problems, agoraphobia, addiction to sweets, to all sorts of physical symptoms and discomfort, such as a headache or chronic fatigue.
This works, because the theory and practice is the same in all situations- EFT stops you from identifying with a problem, or issue, so that you can move on.
