EFT Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique is a method utilizing nine of the body’s energy meridian points. When an issue arises in therapy that has been particularly challenging I will coach you on how to release the psychological and emotional distress by using the fingertips to tap on these meridians while giving voice to the issue and using the breath. We will rate the distress before I take you through the process and afterward. Relief is often experienced in session, and I use muscle testing to confirm that energetic release has taken place.
The Practice of EFT Tapping
The practice of EFT Tapping working in session to release energetic blocks helps you gain the ability to use Tapping on your own outside of session. This is a skill that empowers us to manage our emotional experiences with self-acceptance. It is a remarkably practical skill to learn and use. In it’s most basic form, you can simply concentrate on one thing that is troubling you, pair it with an affirmative statement while tapping on the meridian points, which are easy to learn. Many videos online show the procedure for self-help.
You may wonder how long the benefits of tapping last. It depends on whether or not you administer the techniques while addressing the source of the problem. In the case that you apply EFT to the symptoms of a difficulty without dealing with the origin, the remedy will be short-term. When we are able to apply EFT to the source of the issue, the relief can be certainly long-term.
My purpose as your therapist is to explore the emotional issues that might be underlying the presenting problems so you may have access to long-term relief that EFT can offer. The techniques can help you improve how you feel about yourself and your life, get rid of limiting beliefs, and help you work through past traumas.
