Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is one of the easiest-to-learn healing methods ever developed. I have taught it to all ages from 4 to 84 years old. EFT is a form of energy healing and is designed to resolve many physical and emotional problems by simply working with the body at certain energy points. EFT works to bring about change on all levels – mental (our thoughts), emotional (our feelings) and reactions (behaviours / patterns).

How does it work?

Developed in the 1990s, EFT evolved from meridian-based therapies, such as acupuncture and acupressure. Both attribute disease and emotional dysfunction to disturbances in the energetic field. Energy is believed to flow through our bodies long meridians or pathways that connect to each other and to our organs, much like an electrical circuit. If we’re under stress of any sort – either emotional (anxiety for example) or physical (a food intolerance) – then the energy meridian most affected will shut down or get blocked. The other connected meridians try to compensate in order to keep the energy flowing. But eventually, they get overloaded and blocked. The result is pain or other symptoms. These problems often stem from negative emotions stored within the body. EFT utilizes gentle tapping on the body, as tapping is believed to open energetic centres to release these emotions. EFT can help heal many conditions including eating disorders, phobias, post-traumatic stress syndrome, chronic pain, anxiety disorders, and many serious physical illnesses.
