Energy EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is often referred to as "Psychological acupressure".
Energy EFT works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of negative emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. This results in either emotional and/ or physical symptoms and can include lack of confidence and self-esteem, fear, feeling stuck, anxiety, depression, compulsive and addictive behaviours.
An Energy EFT treatment involves the client tapping on themselves, with their fingertips, near the end points of their “energy meridians” located around the body.
The treatment is non-invasive and does not involve needles . Energy EFT works on the ethos of making change as simple and as pain free as possible.
How EFT Tapping Works
Energy Emotional Freedom Technique has certain things in common with Traditional Chinese Medicine practices like acupressure or acupuncture because it focuses on energy circuits that run throughout the body. These energy circuits are referred to as meridians, and although they cannot be seen or measured, many believe that they exist and have powerful effects.
Mind-body healing techniques are believed to help direct the flow of energy in the body in a way that promotes well-being.
Something that makes Energy EFT different from acupressure or other Eastern approaches is that it focuses on more than physical ailments and energy systems; it also brings attention to thought processes that contribute to stress and emotional problems.
Energy EFT is available in person at The Lomond Clinic in Helensburgh and via Skype .
