What is EFT? What is Tapping?

Have any of you heard of tapping? or EFT?

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. It’s been called the “emotional version of acupuncture” -basically because with EFT, needles are not used.

What EFT or tapping does is help balance energy within the body. There is no special education required and anyone can learn in (even kids!)

About 5,000 years ago, the Chinese discovered a complex system of energy circuits that run throughout the body. These energy circuits … or meridians as they are called … are the centerpiece of Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other healing techniques.

This energy courses through the body and is invisible to the eye. By analogy, you do not see the energy flowing through a TV set either. You know it is there, however, by its effects. The sounds and pictures are your ever present evidence that the energy flow exists.

In the same way, EFT gives you striking evidence that unique energy flows within your meridians because it provides the effects that let you know it is there. By simply tapping near the end points of your energy meridians you can experience some profound changes in your emotional and physical health. That’s what EFT is all about.  It is the central concept in the What is EFT question. (www.emofree.com)

I came across it, kind of by accident. I was looking up alternative medicine options for traumatic brain injuries and post traumatic stress and actually found a lady in little-ol Concord, NH who has done a ton of work with the military population and mental health.

But anyways, so I started looking into it more.

I’m familiar with Reiki (I was actually certified in it at one point)

I’m familiar with the manifestation, visualization thing

so EFT seems like a perfect addition to the “family” .

Once I started reading about it I wanted to learn even more.

Here are some EFT or tapping videos:
