Emotional Freedom Technique ((EFT), also known as Tapping therapy or Meridian Tapping Techniques was created by Gary Craig and works like emotional acupressure to quickly, gently and easily release the negative emotions and beliefs that are at the root of all our problems and pain.
The underlying principle of EFT is that all emotions and thoughts are forms of energy; this energy, whether positive or negative, has very real physical manifestations that affect all functions of the body. While the human body possesses a natural healing potential, stress and emotional problems can stand in the way, which is where EFT comes in. People who experience benefits from practicing tapping techniques find that it helps clear their mind, focus their attention on the present moment (much like meditation does), and improve their attitude so they have a better chance of overcoming challenges they may face.
One of the best things about EFT is that it can be done anywhere, at any time, quickly and without the use of any equipment, medications or supplements. What types of symptoms can EFT help to manage or prevent? People use EFT tapping techniques for:
Reducing short-term or chronic stress
Reducing muscular tension and joint pain
Decreasing fatigue and boosting energy levels
Decreasing tension headaches
Coping with emotional problems such as low self-esteem, depression and anxiety
Improving athletic performance, focus and coordination
