What is EFT?
EFT is sometimes referred to as “Psychological Acupressure”. It is a method of tapping on acupressure points while thinking about your problem. EFT is an amazingly effective way to tap away limiting beliefs and clear old traumas, change behavior patterns, and decrease stress. Think of it as an almost magical way to relieve bad feelings and tap into positive ones.
How it works
Nick Ortner, the co-founder of The Tapping Solution and author of the book by the same name, distills what we do in Tapping down to 3 C’s: Calm, Clear, Create.
Calm: EFT Tapping literally calms the nervous system and lowers your cortisol or stress hormone. In two studies, the original conducted in 2012 and the newer one in 2020, showed that one hour of EFT Tapping significantly lowered cortisol levels in test subjects.
Clear: Once the nervous system is calmed with the stimulation of the acupressure points, you’re able to clear disruptive thoughts, uncomfortable body sensations, and negative emotions. This leads to…
Create: The ability to create what you want in your life. You are able to think more clearly and see or feel new possibilities and are often able to make better choices. You simply feel better and can create a calmer, more balanced life.
How EFT Tapping can help you
There is much research going on to prove EFT Tapping as an effective treatment. In fact, there have been over 120 research studies that have shown its effects are positive in treating anxiety, depression, and physical pain.
