Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

What is EFT ?

EFT is a modern meridian-based energy therapy which utilises acupressure points.

All energy therapies can trace their earliest origins to acupressure and shiatsu techniques developed in China and Japan thousands of years ago. Acupuncture in its purest form using needles is still used today.

EFT is a fusion of the old and the new bringing together ideas from Eastern and Western beliefs.

It is based on the principle that ‘the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system’. In other words it is a form of psychological acupressure based on Chinese acupuncture, but without the needles.


How is EFT used?

Having identified specific negative emotions such as anger, anxiety, fear, sadness, hurt, or guilt, a ‘neutralising affirmation’ is established. This affirmation is then repeated whilst tapping various acupressure points on the body (tapping the points with fingers - there are no needles involved) as well as the movement of thoughts and feelings from one side of the brain to the other. It is very simple, fun and easy to learn. Clients are taught how to use this technique for themselves.

It can be used to treat physical and emotional symptoms. Principally it is used to release negative emotions and eliminate cravings. It can literally ‘melt away’ emotions in a matter of minutes. However, it can help with pain relief and as a relaxation tool. It is much easier to demonstrate this technique than it is to explain it.

70% of men and 63% of women are obese or overweight.

1/3 of children aged 8 - 15 are overweight or obese.

Obesity accounts for 30,000 deaths a year.

Obesity has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, high levels of cholesterol, high blood pressure and strokes. It is also associated with higher rates of certain types of cancer.

95% of all dieters regain their weight after dieting because diets are short-term and not for life, they create the feeling of deprivation, are not practical or realistic and increase levels of body fat.

Your body responds to low calorie diets by assuming that it is experiencing a 'famine' period, so it slows your metabolism to conserve and store more fat.

Diets often exclude important food groups necessary for good health so even if you do lose weight you could be creating health problems for the future.
