Clinical EFT – Tapping

Tapping, otherwise known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a combination of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.

EFT is an effective stress-relief technique based on research showing that stress and emotional trauma contribute greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.

This technique involves “tapping” on the meridian points of our bodies whilst saying certain statements. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.

EFT is a powerful tool to use for uncovering hidden beliefs and old programming that keep us stuck in unhealthy patterns, choices or even relationships that limit us. 

EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including dozens of clinical trials, have demonstrated that EFT is effective for stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.
