Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

If you could wave a magic wand, how would you change your life? Would you feel more confident, self-assured, articulate, and efficient? Less angry, impatient, stressed, and anxious? Would you lose weight? Change your image? Stop smoking? Feel stronger and more energetic? Would you improve your finances? Get along better with friends and family? Alleviate physical discomfort, anxiety, or trauma? Enjoy improved sports performance, academic performance, or business success? Or maybe you'd just like to relax and enjoy life while forgiving yourself for past mistakes. 

Whatever your goal might be, EFT can help. 

EFT -- Emotional Freedom Techniques -- is a simple but sophisticated acupressure tapping procedure that helps alleviate stress, neutralize negative emotions, and improve health and happiness. It even improves the health and happiness of dogs, cats, and other pets. 

EFT is an energy method that combines acupressure tapping with focused thought. It was developed in the 1990s and quickly became popular throughout the United States and around the world. There are now hundreds of EFT-related websites, books that describe it, and workshops that teach it, plus thousands of practitioners, counselors, and performance coaches who employ it. 

What is EFT or Tapping? 

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques (sometimes called Tapping) and, in essence, it is an emotional version of acupuncture, except we don't use needles. Instead, we stimulate certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. This has shown repeatedly to reduce the conventional therapy process from months or years down to minutes, hours or a few sessions. 

What can I use EFT for? 

This innovative Tapping tool has proven useful in clinical settings for just about any emotional, physical or performance issue you can name. That's a bold statement, I know. There are success stories on everything from fears to trauma ... anger to depression ... bee stings to multiple sclerosis ... back pain to vision issues ... baseball to gymnastics ... singing to golf. This one innovative tool is so universal that one of our mottos is "Try Tapping on Everything."
