There are many things that a person thinks of when they think of natural or homeopathic remedies, but one of the best is often overlooked; known as the emotional freedom technique, EFT for short.
The Emotional Freedom Technique is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. The basic idea is, no matter what in your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. This is even the case for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions. Emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body. EFT works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort.
EFT is a form of acupressure, it bases itself on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for well over five thousand years, but without the use of needles. In the place of needles is a simple tapping with the fingertips, used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about a specific problem; whether it be a traumatic event, addiction, pain, etc. while voicing positive affirmations.
The basic tapping process is easy to learn, can be done anytime/anywhere, and can be used to provide impressive DIY results. It is very portable and learnable by almost anyone, in some studies, even children have produced beginner’s benefits with it.
The basic sequence is straightforward and generally takes patients only a few moments to learn. It is all in the fingertips; there are a number of acupuncture meridians on your fingertips. Traditional EFT will have you tapping with your index and middle finger and with only one hand. Most of the tapping points exist on either side of the body so it does not matter if you switch sides during the tapping. It is also important to remember to remove your watch and bracelets, they will interfere with your use of wrist meridian tapping.
Tap with solid motions, but never hurt yourself!
