WHAT EXACTLY IS EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE?
EFT is based on a revolutionary new discovery that evolved from, the US clinical psychologist Roger Callahan, Thought Field Therapy.
This technique argues that disruptions within the body’s energy system, is the cause of all negative emotions. EFT techniques although unusual but scientific in nature, have had significant results. A method of using the fingertips along a short series of points in a ‘tapping’ motion, which corresponds with acupuncture points on the energy meridians.
During this treatment if disparity is discovered, then there is typically a parallel blockage in the flow of energy through the meridian system. The ‘tapping’ method relieves the blockages that are produced when an individual gets involved or thinks about an emotionally charged situation. Once the blockage has been relieved and equilibrium has been restored, the awareness of the situation through being altered in a positive way remains as a memory, but the emotional charge has been dissipated.
Whilst this method can be learnt by anyone, for their own application, there are certain issues that would require the skill of an EFT therapist, as some problems need the perseverance of this technique over a period of time. The method of EFT therapy should always be considered as a therapy, which is utilized in combination with medical consultation, not as an alternative to appropriate medical care.
