What is EFT?

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT is a practical self-help method that involves using the fingers to gently tap on the body’s acupuncture points along the meridian lines of Chinese medicine. It is often referred to as ‘EFT Tapping’ or simply as ‘Tapping’. The therapeutic effects of this technique are recognised around the world. One can use EFT tapping for anxiety, weight loss issues, pain, stress and many other issues.

EFT Tapping helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we form around our uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. We ‘tap’ on the correct pressure points while bringing the thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back.

What is EFT Tapping Therapy?

EFT therapy is a session between a trained EFT practitioner and a client or patient. Some countries require special licenses to be officially called a ‘therapist’ so EFT International refers to our members as ‘EFT Practitioners’. The practitioner will use EFT techniques to work on general or specific issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, chronic pain, or weight loss. EFT sessions can be long or short and single or multiple depending on the needs of the client.
