What is Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping?
EFT tapping has roots in the 1970s when several doctors began stimulating acupressure points to help their patients deal with stress, fear, and phobias. One of them, patented by Dr. Roger Callahan, is called Thought Field Therapy. Later Gary Craig simplified the process and made it available to the public under the EFT name.
EFT tapping falls into the category of body-centered therapies. Tapping draws on the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, which teaches that the body's energy travels along specific pathways. Certain points on these pathways are stimulated to improve the flow of energy. The stimulation is done by inserting very thin needles (acupuncture) or by applying pressure ( acupressure). -https://www.webmd.com/balance/what-is-eft-tapping
EFT involves tapping with the fingertips on specific energy points on the hands, head and chest – corresponding to Chinese meridian points – whilst focusing on a specific problem, emotion, memory or belief. This sends an electromagnetic impulse to our brain releasing the emotional charge connected to that memory or "issue". The effect of this release, is that our subconscious programming is changed. The memory remains but without the hijacking influence it had on our life and emotions. Once the releases take place, we can naturally make a shift in our perception and find we are able to interpret life in a more harmonious way.
How many sessions are needed?
It depends on the person and the area of concern. Some issues are more deep-rooted than others and some may have many layers that need to be addressed first. I suggest at least three sessions. For extended sessions of four or more, I offer adjusted rate packages that can be used within a 3 month period.
EFT can support the reduction of:
Reducing pain - Negative emotions - Anxiety and Panic attacks - Anger
compulsions and obsessions - Depression and sadness - Fears and Phobias
Grief and loss - Guilt - Insomnia - Negative memories - PTSD - Traumatic memories
Although EFT is completely safe and there are no negative side effects; it is considered a complementary
therapy and as such, does not replace seeking qualified medical advice when needed. There are times I'm called to include aromatherapy and/or sound tools to support moving or releasing a deeply held energetic-pattern or charge. In this case I will ask for permission before doing do so.
As a stand alone service $50 / 30 minutes. As an add-on to other services $30 / 15 minutes. (This is available to clients who've already had their initial session)
