Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Based on the ancient principles of acupuncture, EFT is a simple tapping procedure that gently realigns the body's energy system. EFT addresses unresolved emotional issues as a likely cause of physical disease, psychological dysfunction, and personal performance limits. Negative emotional experiences disrupt the energy meridians that run through our body, the physical changes we feel from those disruptions, like nausea or anxiety, become attached to the memory of that experience and affect the way we see the world until we heal that disruption. Properly applied, EFT can help with realigning the energy meridians with respect to negative memories, disconnects the physical discomfort that we attached to it, and quite often removes the resulting symptoms.
Emotional Freedom Technique was created by Gary Craig in the early 1990s. It works by tapping certain meridian points while saying a discovery statement. By stimulating the meridian points, blocked energy created by a negative experience or emotional response is released, allowing the energy to flow freely and restoring the body’s energy field (aura) to ‘balance’.
