Here comes EFT at your rescue!
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is an alternative approach to treating physical as well as emotional pain. It’s been clinically shown to help with anxiety, stress, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), pain, addictions, cravings, weight problems and what not.
What makes EFT so different from other forms of therapy is that extremely simple to apply and gives rapid and long-lasting results as compared to other techniques.

It is a powerful self-help tool. Once learnt from a qualified EFT Practitioner, you can apply the basic EFT Tapping on yourself for solving almost any issue you want. So yes, you can do EFT on yourself!
HOW DOES EFT TAPPING WORK?
EFT Tapping is a simple process of gently simulating specific energy points on the body along with saying certain statements related to the problem you wish to solve.
The science of EFT Tapping has been derived from ancient Chinese medicine and modern psychology. The step-by-step process of EFT Tapping has been elaborated further in this blog.
The basic theory behind EFT is that all negative emotions and behaviors, and many of the physical discomforts that they cause, are the result of disruptions to your body’s energy system.
If we think of something, and it brings about negative emotions in us, it means that our body’s energy has been disrupted because of that memory.
If your brain recognizes a similarity between a distressing situation from your past and what you are seeing or hearing in the moment- even though there is no current threat or danger- the same distress signals that you experienced in the earlier situation can become activated.
“I use Tapping on a regular basis and have personally benefited from this powerful method. It’s one of the most important practices in my healing arsenal”.
Though people often are not aware of it, this is one of the main causes of all the problems. EFT enables us to uncover those memories and heal them from the root, so that they don’t govern our present.
By tapping on the specific points on the body by keeping in the problem, EFT aims to balance the energy system of the body so that the emotional charge associated with the memory goes away.
Once the charge is released, the same memory will no longer produce disturbing emotions and we would be liberated from our conditioning and limiting beliefs.
Out of all the therapeutic techniques, what makes EFT so unique?
Well, most importantly, EFT is the only talk-and-touch therapy that works through deep layers of conditioning and trauma, and heals not just the mind, but also the heart.
Given below are the reasons stating why you should learn EFT:
There are no surgical procedures, no needles, no pills or chemicals, no pushing or pulling on the body, involved in EFT, which make it easy for anyone to apply it on themselves.
EFT is very simple to use as all you need are your finger tips, a simple script and a few minutes. Since you are the one tapping with your own fingertips with a comfortable amount of pressure, it’s very gentle on your body.
You can easily take EFT with you wherever you go. You can do EFT while at home, on vacation, and even in the shower.
EFT can be used on a wide variety of issues. Use it for addictions, cravings, anger management, weight loss, limiting beliefs, anxiety, emotional issues, doubt, stress, public speaking, self-esteem issues, pain management, guilt, forgiveness, fears, phobias, and sports performance.
One of the most rewarding reasons to learn EFT is so you can help others. Family, friends, or clients will be amazed at the quick results. You can easily help them perform EFT on themselves.
