EFT Tapping

Tapping, which is also known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is an extremely powerful mind-body technique that can help you rewire your energy system, reprogram your subconscious beliefs, clear your resistances to achieving your goals, and remove your old programming that is keeping you stuck.  

“This really works…  I’ve had great results with tapping in my own life.”  -Wayne Dyer

The benefits of Tapping include: reducing your stress, worries, procrastination, cravings, unhappiness, insecurities/self-doubt, unwanted feelings, and other self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors.  By identifying and removing your emotional blocks and dis-empowering beliefs in both your conscious mind and your subconscious mind you are able to change your inner reality which can then change your outer reality.

EFT Tapping: If you feel anxious; tapping is one of the best tools, that I have come across in all of my studies as a therapist, to use to manage and decrease your anxiety. Tapping will help you feel more present, grounded, and connected to yourself which will help you to decrease your overall negativity and help raise your vibrations so you feel more joyful, optimistic, and an overall sense of happiness in yourself and in your life.  With tapping and other energy psychology techniques, you are able to balance your body’s energy systems and begin to feel better.

Resource for EP Techniques & Processes:

Emotional Freedom Techniques, often referred to as EFT or Tapping, are meridian tapping techniques where the ends of the meridian points are stimulated through light tapping or touching with the fingertips.

Tapping on the meridian points allows the body to calm down and relax when it goes into the fight, flight, or freeze fear response.  Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT can be used on specific events, physical feelings and sensations, as well as emotions.

“EFT offers great healing benefits.”  -Deepak Chopra  

The idea is that the energy has been disrupted, blocked, or reversed within the body’s energy system and by tapping on the meridian points we are allowing the energy to connect and flow in the right direction again.

Emotional Freedom Technique is incredibly helpful for removing negative emotions and disempowering beliefs.

“EFT is at the forefront of the new healing movement.” –Candace Pert PhD

EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) was created by Gary Craig, a Stanford Engineer Graduate.  It came out of psychologist Roger Callahan’s Thought Field Therapy, which is commonly referred to as TFT, in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Both EFT and TFT are often referred to as Energy Psychology techniques.  They are both based on ancient acupuncture but they don’t use needles and they both incorporate modern day psychology.

“EFT is a simple powerful process that can profoundly influence gene activity, health and behavior.”  Bruce Lipton, PhD

EFT Tapping has been called a “psychological form of acupressure” and “acupuncture for the emotions.” Tapping works by stimulating the ends of the meridians, which are the energy pathways in the body.  Tapping on the meridian end points lightly with one or two fingers allows the body to relax and rewire itself at a subconscious level.  EFT Tapping works to calm the nervous system, which turns off the fight or flight response when there is no real threat.  Our bodies tend to have a hard time differentiating between a real threat and a perceived threat.  The reason for this is that our energy systems are under constant stress nowadays because of our environmental influences such as driving, traffic, homes, the food we eat, electromagnetic energy around us (cell phones/computers), work environments, money, finances, and so on.  By tapping on the meridian points, the disrupted energy can begin to flow again and we can reset our energy systems.

“EFT is easy, effective, and produces amazing results.” –Donna Eden
