EFT - EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUESEmotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is based on the discovery that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy systems?. This radical discovery calls for a new understanding and new treatments that are outside the normal medical boundaries.
What are the body's energy systems?About 5000 years ago, the Chinese discovered a complex system of energy circuits that run throughout the body. These circuits or meridians as they're called, form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure, reflexology and a variety of other ancient healing techniques.
The body has a complex electrical system that sends electrical impulses constantly throughout our body to keep it informed of what is going on. Without this flow of energy, we wouldn't be able to see, hear, feel, taste or smell. As everyone knows, the EEG (electroencephalograph) and the ECG (electrocardiograph), records electrical activity in the brain and the heart and when this electrical energy stops flowing, the machine stops 'blipping' and we die.
What is EFT?EFT is a remarkable and unique method of correcting imbalances in the body's energy systems. EFT reduces and corrects these imbalances and consequently has the effect of eliminating any negative emotions. This is achieved by tapping on the end meridian points in certain body locations.
EFT has been reported successful in thousands of cases covering a huge range of emotional, health and performance issues such as:

What results can I expect?EFT often works where nothing else has. There is striking evidence that these energy flows exist and tapping near the end points of the energy meridians, results in some profound changes in one's physical health. It is because of these changes, that a growing number of health practitioners are turning to EFT to help their patient's physical and mental well being.
The results of the EFT process are real, permanent as well as being quick, painless and simple to learn. This means that you will be able to continue the treatment yourself in your own home.
How can EFT help me?Any negative emotion that you are experiencing, that you wish you didn't have, can be treated with the EFT process. It may be something that has stayed with you since childhood, or perhaps is a problem that you have tried to resolve previously using different types of therapy but without success.
EFT can treat all of these types of emotional problems effectively. It doesn't matter how long this negative emotion has been with you, or how deep-seated it is. EFT can very likely be the answer you are looking for. I can't promise you positive results 100% of the time, although the statistics associated with EFT are known to have an 80% success rate and the results are permanent. This is a tremendous improvement over most other types of therapy.
EFT offers the added bonus of being quick to start alleviating this negative energy state and the simplicity of the process, enables you to continue using it yourself whenever you have the need.
What can I expect?During the session I will show you how to tap on certain points on your face, upper body and hands. These points link to the same meridians that that are used acupuncture but in EFT, a gentle tapping is used instead of needles.
Memories often contribute but are not the direct cause of negative emotions. Therefore, there is no point in dwelling on painful memories or re-living what are often uncomfortable events in one's life. Unlike counselling, there is minimal emotional stress involved with EFT. All you will be asked is to do a brief recall of your problem, but there is absolutely no need to have to relive the pain.
The tapping is carried out while you are focussed on the problem, and this causes a disruption in your energy system. You will often be able to feel this disruption, not just as an emotion, but also physically like a churning in your stomach or a slight tightness in your chest or throat for example. Tapping while you are thinking about the problem will start to balance the body's energy so that you lose the feeling of disruption and you no longer have the negative emotion.
