The purpose of a treatment by Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is to discharge chemicals that have clogged the cell receptor sites in your body. These chemicals keep you from performing well or trap you in self-sabotaging thoughts or behaviors.
EFT works on a cellular level to remove mental, emotional, physical and mechanical blocks, allowing your body to return to a state of balance and allowing you to function at your optimal level.
Treatment begins with a brief discussion of the goal or issue, followed by a progression of tapping on your face and hands using your own fingertips, while focusing on the challenge you’re facing.
As chemicals are flushed from your cells, emotional intensity quickly shifts from high to low. You experience a physical feeling of relaxation, a lowered heart rate and deeper breathing. Thinking moves into a more rational, neutral mode because the brain is not flooded by past or recent disturbances.
Adaptable to many circumstances, EFT is just as effective over the phone as it is in person. Once the process has been learned, people can use it on their own or with the guidance of a practitioner. Some clients require only one or two sessions, either to resolve an issue or to learn the technique well enough to apply it to themselves.
The tapping was so strong, yet gentle, and steady. It was “grounding.”
