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. EFT technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes balance in the body. It is a healing practice that looks, and is, simple to learn and apply.

EFT, or tapping, can be done anytime, anywhere. It is administered through light, non-manipulative tapping. It is a safe, non-invasive practice that does not interfere with any medical treatment or drug regimen prescribed by your doctor (be they conventional or holistic).

EFT can benefit anyone, regardless of age, situation or state of health. It is part of the traditional medical model and works on all levels of the human experience; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and even may have a positive effect on the social.

There are many prominent physicians, surgeons and health care advocates who hope to see EFT integrated into every facet of conventional medicine. There are thousands of people around the world who have incorporated EFT into their lives as a daily practice which helps them improve their own health and well-being.

It is important to know that EFT can potentially help anyone because it does not treat a particular condition or dis-ease. EFT helps bring the body back to it’s own balance which is unique for each individual.

What EFT or tapping does is help balance energy within the body and it is a process or treatment you do on yourself.

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)
