What is EFT?

Tapping is a gentle, investigative talk therapy with the an added body component, where specific parts of the face and are ‘tapped’ on lightly, to stimulate meridian points.
How does EFT work?
EFT is often described as Psychological Acupuncture as it utilizes the meridian system from traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments without the use of needles.
Instead, simple tapping of the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto 12 specific meridian points on the head, chest and fingers while thinking about a specific problem, such as a disturbing event or emotion. These points correspond to meridians used in Chinese medicine.
The theory behind EFT is that negative emotions, e.g, worry, fear, sorrow, grief, anger, guilt, are caused by disturbances in the body’s energy field. Tapping on relevant meridian points while thinking of a specific negative emotion (issue) alters the body’s energy field, restoring it to balance.
