EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE
also known as E.F.T. or tapping
A traditional Chinese medicine technique that taps on your natural bodily energy meridians
This practice may seem like a strange one at first. It did for me. But I also found that it helped me easily re-center myself during more difficult days.
Here I would suggest starting by downloading the Tapping Solution app or checking out tapping videos on Youtube.
Check out the the site below, it helps get your feet wet in the realm of tapping.
Studies at Harvard Medical School have revealed that by stimulating the body’s meridian points – the same spots on your body that are manipulated by acupuncturists – you can significantly reduce activity in a part of your brain called the amygdala. In Emotional Freedom Technique you tap along your seven major energy meridian points while focusing on specific problems you are currently facing to help reframe your mind and body.
Think of your amygdala as a personal alarm system. When you experience trauma or fear, the amygdala is triggered and your body is flooded with cortisol, commonly known as the “stress hormone.” This intricate chain reaction – your stress response – significantly influences and sometimes even causes whatever it is that troubles you, whether that’s an illness, injury, or even an external problem such as your finances or a relationship.
These studies show that by stimulating these parts of your body – as we do in EFT Tapping – you can drastically reduce or eliminate the distress that accompanies or gives rise to these problems you face. By so doing, you can often eliminate the problems themselves!
E.F.T. touts several benefits including the lessening of:
weight loss issues
& other problems
Again, this may seem silly at first. And you should probably do this practice when you don't think you'll be disturbed... But it worked for me, and many others I have recommended it to. My therapist is an enthusiast of this method as well and loves to hear how happily I talk about my experience with E.F.T. so far.
