TAPPING or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

 

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping, is a powerful modality used as part of the Anxiety Release Protocol (ARP). It is a simple and effective way to lower both adrenaline and cortisol in your body thus relieving you of the symptoms associated with anxiety and panic attacks.

 

What is the Science?

Tapping integrates Western medicine’s newfound understanding of neurological development and patterning, with Eastern medicine’s 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 hormones adrenaline and cortisol in your body.  (Quite simply we can measure cortisol in saliva, and when we measured cortisol levels in those who had Tapped, they had reduced, often considerably!) 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.

Eastern Medicine gave us acupuncture, a science that dates back at least 350 years BC!  Applying pressure or tapping on a point is acupuncture but without the needles.  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 and help you restore an energetic balance.

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 an 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 its 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.’

By integrating western medicine, eastern medicine, exposure therapy, and a meditative component all in one modality, you can make quite the impact on how you feel.
