Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)  – (Tapping)

What are the benefits of this 5,000 bc Meridian Therapy technique known as Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT – Tapping what can it do for you, does it work, why use it?

All very good questions you might ask. 

I have been using EFT on myself, my family and clients for around 18 years, the results always amaze me.  When I first heard of EFT I was skeptical at how it worked so quickly and would it have a lasting effect.  Was it really that good?

The process has been around since 5000bc an ancient  Art so this is not New Age, it has been around for thousands of years. Tried and tested and proven to be very very effective.

This premise is based that all unresolved emotional issues get trapped in your meridian system.

This, in turn, causes pain and dis-ease in our organs and body.

EFT is also described as Acupuncture without the needles.  Scientific studies have been done on the use of Meridian Therapies with great results.

Since I started using and sharing EFT I have written books about it, given talks about it, and am a great fan of this Meridian Energy Process:

What are the benefits of Emotional Freedom Techniques?

You can use EFT on anybody any age from new-born to hospice.   You can even use it on your pets.

There is not a negative emotion you cannot use this on.  There are however aspects of emotions and although you may have anger issues or grief or depression, there are many emotional memories that are attached to them.  

Therefore you can clear your anger towards your mother for mistreating you but you may still harbor anger against the job you got fired from.

You would tap on each of them separately so as to clear your anger for both memories.  Do not worry you will not clear your memories you will just eliminate the negative emotion attached to that memory.     

 So how do you use EFT?

How to tap

It is also called Tapping and you use your fingertips to tap on the meridian points around your face, collarbone, and top of the head.   You focus on the negative emotion while you tap on the points.   An affirmation is said while tapping on the Karate Point to help release the negative emotion. As seen in this diagram.

 Meridians and the Emotional response to Your Body:

Through my practice: I  personally have helped many people overcome phobias, panic attacks, fears, emotional eating, and a lot more using  EFT and I am still amazed at the results and how quickly it all happens.  I love teaching children and young adults to use it to help them with their test anxiety and social skills.    Schedule your session now

When do you use EFT?

Every day and as often as needed.  There are no side effects to this protocol and you can only benefit from it.   Tap on any and all emotions.    Give A Gift Card

    I have heard great things about EFT and also read the DR Wayne Dyer was a staunch believer in EFT techniques. Great article and this would make a believer out of me if I wasn’t already!!

    Hi Helen,

    Great content, and really like your website. Had never heard of EFT before so reading your article was a real eye opener, as it’s a very important topic.

      Thank you, everyone has some emotion or emotions that are unresolved and can be triggered at any moment. EFT is a great tool to learn and keep using when the triggers arise.

    Hello Helen. As someone who is proactive about helping myself manage my mental health, this technique is of interest. But at the same time I am sceptical because I hear of so many so-called miracle cures and simple activities that are supposed to rid you of all suffering! That’s not to say this is one of them. In fact, I’m keen to learn more about it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

      Always good to be skeptical I have been using EFT for nearly 20 years on myself and my clients and had amazing results. The best thing you have nothing to lose and no side effects. Hope you give it a try.
