Emotional Freedom Techniques

What is EFT?

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques – often referred to as ‘tapping’ because you tap on yourself.

It is a leading edge, stress-reduction technique that works quickly to reduce or eliminate the stress caused by negative emotions. It is also a self-help tool, so easy to learn even a child can do it.

Throughout our lives we store an ocean of memories and experiences in our minds and bodies, not all of them are conscious or joyful. With EFT we can remove the sting, or the stress, of the memories and experiences from the past, and also the present, that affect us.

Be it repeated put-downs from a family member, or that fight with your boss that just happened, by applying EFT you can be free of that experience. It becomes just a story, without any attachment, negativity or stress – emotional freedom! And with emotional freedom those putdowns no longer limit you and the disagreement can be remedied.

The basis of EFT is that all problems, whether emotional, physical or performance-based, are the result of imbalances, or disruptions, in the body’s energy system. These imbalances can have profound, negative effects on our wellbeing.

EFT works to dissolve beliefs and experiences that fuel stress, anxiety, disease and/or dysfunction. If you find yourself stuck, there is likely something working beneath the surface of your awareness that is blocking you. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be stuck.

It’s my job as coach/practitioner to help you identify the problem and clear the way forward.

Why would I do EFT?

Why wouldn’t you? EFT is able to affect a wide range of problems, including weight gain. The reason is because it reduces stress, and stress, in one form or another, is a component of many problems.

Here’s why you might want to try EFT.

  • It works fast.
  • It often works when nothing else does.
  • It is gentle.
  • It requires no drugs, needles or other equipment.
  • It is safe and easy to use.
  • You can do it with a practitioner via phone or Skype.
  • You can do it on yourself.
  • Results last.

Does this sound too good to be true? It’s not. It’s true and available to all.

An estimated six million people worldwide use EFT. It is being taught and practiced in schools, prisons, hospitals, and on sports fields. Major projects are underway with war veterans with PTSD, orphans in Rwanda, and families of victims of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

EFT allows you to improve all aspects of your life and wellbeing. At some level, we understand that stress shows up in our bodies. Maybe our blood pressure goes up, we’re depressed, we get sick, we gain weight, we experience insomnia, and/or disease. By addressing the stress of negative emotions relief is possible. As Gary Craig, EFT founder, says, “try it on everything.”

How does EFT work?

To correct energy imbalances, difficult emotions or barriers to success in any aspect of life, we integrate western psychology and eastern medicine.

A set of techniques developed in the mid 90s by Stanford engineer, Gary Craig, involves identifying a specific problem. As we tune into the problem we tap on a set of acupressure points with the fingertips and make statements that reflect the problem.

The process is very simple, and repeatable. See how do I do it.

Depending on the nature and severity of the problem, a practitioner will utilize different techniques to bring peace to the client in the gentlest way possible. You don’t have to relive the experience to relieve it.

It should be noted that EFT does not replace doctors, therapists, medications, or any other treatment protocols.

The EFT process often leads to a greater sense of wellbeing because when energies flow through the body, the body takes care of itself. Studies show that cortisol, our body’s primary stress hormone, is reduced, when doing EFT. The result is that we see things differently. We can operate from a clean slate, from choice, versus reacting to old wounds buried in our subconscious.

In physical terms, EFT impacts the autonomic nervous system. A negative thought, experience or memory will trigger a conditioned stress response, i.e. fight-or-flight, that starts in your brain, invoking the sympathetic nervous system. With EFT, you’re re-conditioning the brain to produce a relaxation response, invoking the parasympathetic nervous system. The tapping actually sends a calming signal to the amygdala in the limbic part of your brain. The conditioned association of the stressor is broken, and when EFT is done thoroughly, stays broken. The problem evaporates. Balance and harmony are restored. And you are no longer triggered by the negative emotion or event.

  • Do you have a history of dieting and deprivation, yet increasing weight?
  • Do you eat to comfort or reward yourself, for lack of other strategies?
  • Do you feel as though you unconsciously sabotage weight loss success?

EFT for Weight Loss
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. What if you could reduce, or eliminate, negative emotions and stress with the touch of your fingertips? I know. That sounds a bit odd and just too good to be true. But it is true. . . . and it is odd! So be it. The EFT process of tapping on acupressure points while tuning into a problem has a proven and remarkable effect.

EFT (often called tapping) works on the Autonomic Nervous System. Simply put, EFT tempers the stress response and invokes the relaxation response. Approaching weight loss from strictly a physical body, i.e. calories in/calories out approach doesn’t work for most people, or for any length of time, because emotions are likely involved. So if emotions got you into trouble, we need to involve emotions to get you out of trouble.

With EFT weight loss coaching we get to the heart of the matter. Emotions likely play a part on why and how you eat. Your stressors and beliefs about how you see yourself, what you think you deserve or don’t deserve, or what is possible, can all be changed when you work with an EFT weight loss coach. The bonus? EFT tapping is also a self-help tool you will learn to use independently.
