Emotional Freedom Techniques

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), also known as “tapping,” is a powerful, evidence-based therapeutic approach that combines elements of cognitive therapy and exposure therapy with acupressure. EFT involves tapping on specific meridian points on the body while focusing on particular issues, emotions, or thoughts, helping to release emotional blocks and reduce psychological distress.

How EFT Works

EFT is based on the concept that negative emotions and unresolved trauma can disrupt the body’s energy system, leading to physical and emotional symptoms. By tapping on acupressure points while addressing these issues, EFT aims to restore balance to the body’s energy, allowing for emotional healing and relief from distress.
