Emotional Freedom Technique - Tapping our problems away

What is Emotional Freedom Technique?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a simple practical and user friendly technique similar to acupuncture but without using needles. It’s principle is that all symptoms of dis-ease have their root in an imbalance in the body’s energy system.

How does it work?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) aims to remove any psychological blocks in the mind towards health and then re-tune the energy system in our body back to balance. We can then be well to lead fulfilling happy lives.

EFT works by tapping certain parts of the body (linked the meridian points in acupuncture) and saying simple words and phrases out loud about the specific problem being treated. Many people find it a bit “wackey and wierd” at first but when they see results and get used to it their inhibitions tend to evaporate.

EFT can produce quick results in some cases. However, normally when there are a number of parts (aspects) to a problem EFT needs to be carried out on all of them before the problem being treated is resolved and health can be maintained.

Although you need a practitioner to work with you, an advantage of EFT is that it can be practiced on your own. It is a simple tool that can help you with daily life.

What can it treat?

The wonderful potential of EFT is that it can be used to treat a number of mental and physical health problems by bringing our energy system back to balance. EFT is backed up by research and there are numerous reports of its positive benefits. It is typically used to treat the following, all of which I can offer as part of my practice:

Trauma - Healing the past


Chronic pain

Cravings and addictions;

Stress, anxiety & Depression; and

Low self esteem and low self confidence

I often carry out EFT in combination with other self help tools as appropriate for my client.
