Tapping, formally called EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), is a mind-body approach to healing and personal growth. It is a fresh application of the science of acupuncture used for balancing and clearing pathways for the subtle energy flowing through our bodies.
Tapping is simple, flexible, and surprisingly powerful. The basic process consists of using your fingertips to tap on acupuncture points while focusing on a specific emotional or physical concern or on a thought pattern that you would like to shift. This gentle approach stimulates healing on many levels, leading first to a reduction in physical pain or an emotional concern and then to a bubbling up of joy from deep within.
Tapping also seamlessly complements many other tools in your wellness toolkit
Have you been working with a nutritionist to incorporate new eating habits, but find that there are certain times of the day or situations where you fall easily back into your old patterns?
Tapping can help you break free of old patterns (and cravings!) and allow you to easily make choices that support your new goals.
Have you been seeing a physical therapist to address an injury or misalignment, but the pain is getting in the way of your healing?
Tapping can help release the pain so you can focus on the stretching and strengthening you need to do.
Have you been working with a life coach setting goals and making schedules to reach them, but find yourself up at night, unable to sleep and then not having the energy to take the steps that will move you toward your dreams?
Tapping can help you find peace and release the anxiety that keeps you awake in the dark of night.
Tapping has been successfully, even brilliantly, used to address a wide range of concerns for thousands of people worldwide. Studies have shown that EFT can help to:
- Let go of negative emotions
- Alleviate pain (physical and emotional)
- Remove emotional blocks
- Promote healing (physical and emotional)
- Achieve a healthy weight
- Break unhealthy habits or addictions
It has also been seen to enhance commitment to state goals and improve sports performance, public speaking, and mental clarity.
