Emotional Freedom Technique in Barnsley, South Yorkshire
What is EFT?
EFT is a simple, effective self-help technique that works directly with the body's energy system to help heal emotional problems. It's lik acupuncture without the needles!
Emotional Freedom Technique involves tapping the body's major energy field endpoints while repeating statements that focus on specific emotional problems.
It's EASY to learn and studies have shown that it's remarkably effective.
How does it work?
Essentially, a mental image of your problem provokes the fight-or-flight response and causes disruption in your energy field and the associated negative emotional feeling(s), but by gently tapping the energy field endpoints (see illustration) and breathing in a normal rhythm, you stimulate the energy meridians and send a conforting message to your body that you can react in a calm, relaxed way.
EFT works by giving you the opportunity to recondition your mind and body to react differently to events that might normally cause a negative reaction within you.
How effective is EFT?
In one study involving 5,000 anxiety patients:
- 76% of those using EFT (an average 3 times) achieved complete relief of their symptoms
- 90% achieved some improvement
- In comparison, only 51% achieved complete relief of their symptoms while being given solely CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) in 15 sessions. CBT is traditionally considered the therapy of choice for anxiety by mainstream healthcare providers.
- EFT was not only FAR MORE EFFECTIVE but worked 5 TIMES FASTER than CBT.
