Emotional Freedom Technique / Tapping
Tapping: A Powerful Psychological Tool
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping, is a one of many psychological tools that can be used in proactive and progressive counselling and psychotherapy.
Tapping integrates Western medicines new found understanding of neurological development and patterning, with Eastern medicines understanding of energy and the meridians in the body by which this energy travels.
Western medical studies have shown how Tapping can reduce the stress hormone call cortisol in your body.
When your cortisol reduces you experience a lowered feeling of stress including reducing or even eliminating those symptoms like a racing heart, sweaty or tingly hands, panting and feeling of doom.
Tapping is based in both Eastern and Western Medicine.
Tapping is a process whereby one taps on the endpoints of major meridians to help clear the “short circuit” or emotional block from your body’s bioenergy system while re-processing thoughts.
Tapping on these meridian endpoints is clinically proven to lower cortisol in our system.
Cortisol is a hormone that causes the symptoms of stress and anxiety.
Perhaps when you were a child in school your teacher scattered iron filings on a page with a magnet beneath, and you saw lines of energy graphically illustrated by the iron filings?
The body’s energy likewise has normal patterns. When you stub your toe and energetic signal is sent from the nerve endings in your toe to your brain. This particular run of energy through your nervous system is fortunately not one you experience 24/7! Ultimately your energy system re-balances and the pain signal from your toe lessons or dissipates, as your energy returned to his normal flow. Tapping is a practical, quicker and intentional way of rebalancing your energy to its natural state to make you feel more at ease, and less at ‘dis-ease.’
In the video above, you will learn a little more about the clinical practice of Tapping, and how it can help you move beyond emotional blocks that may be responsible for your anxiety, depression, and even failed relationships.
