The ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ (EFT) is a healing therapy that offers healing from physical and emotional pain and disease. It can be referred to as “Psychological Acupressure”, EFT works by releasing emotional blockages within the body’s energy system. This is done through tapping on key meridian points around the body whilst focusing on the emotional stresses the individual is experiencing.
EFT is in effect an emotional version of acupuncture but without the needles. This treatment sprang from the idea that, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
There are many positive benefits to the EFT process and experience, which are as follows:
The ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ can effectively be used as part of any healing journey, as all illnesses will have an emotional root to them; we encourage all clients to explore this aspect in our sessions. As mentioned above, once the emotional stress has been cleared the body is able to relax, enter into a parasympathetic state and allow the healing process can begin.
At Higher Healing, we use EFT in combination with Matrix Reimprinting for a powerful healing experience. Areas where EFT is known to be of particularly beneficial is:
EFT is great at working on the subconscious mind and removing trauma from the body. We combine this technique with Matrix Reimprinting (which is built on the foundations of EFT) to not only clear the trauma, but to also rewrite a new positive memory and a new belief system, which will serve you for life. This allows for a much more powerful and memorable experience and a deeper level of healing.
Choosing this approach allows you to not only harness all the benefits of EFT but also start to rewrite any negative subconscious belief systems which determine how we view ourselves and the world around us.
Our energy system consists of 12 meridians that travel all throughout our body. Our life energy (which has been called vital force, Qi, prana) is distributed through these meridian channels, when they are flowing freely we are said to be in good health.
Blockages in our energy system are a source of emotional intensity often caused by small and large traumatic events in our life. As a result of these events, we form negative/limiting beliefs and behaviours in order to protect ourselves but in turn they don’t allow us to live life peacefully.
These traumatic memories are trapped in our subconscious minds (they are always there but in the background) and when they are triggered (for a number of different reasons) they turn on the stress response in our bodies. As a result, both emotional and physical symptoms are experienced, and If experienced for a sustained period of time these can lead to illness within the body.
From an emotional perspective, often self esteem and confidence, anxiety, depression, or addictive and compulsive behaviours are developed in order to cope with these feelings.
Emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease within the body. Often if there is underlying emotional disharmony within the body, nutrition and diets won’t work effectively until they are dealt with. This is the reason why, the ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ (EFT) is being widely used on physical issues, including chronic illness with very positive results.
Similar to acupuncture, the ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ focuses on the meridian points — or energy hot spots — to restore balance to your body’s energy. It’s believed that restoring this energy balance can relieve symptoms a negative experience or emotion will have caused.
Based on Chinese medicine, meridian points are thought of as areas of the body energy flows through. These pathways help balance energy flow to maintain your health. Any imbalance can influence disease or sickness.
Acupuncture uses needles to apply pressure to these energy points. EFT uses fingertip tapping to apply pressure.
In EFT, through creating a ‘Set-up Statement’ the client is able to tune in to the emotional energy and then the meridian points are tapped in sequence whilst repeating this statement to clear the blocked energy from the energy system.
The ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ tapping sequence is the deliberate tapping on the ends of nine meridian points. There are 12 major meridians that mirror each side of the body and correspond to an internal organ. EFT mainly focuses on these nine:
The process begins by tapping the karate chop point while simultaneously reciting a setup phrase which is to do with the specific emotions an individual is experiencing. Then, tapping on each following points, moving down the body in this ascending order. While tapping the ascending points, a reminder phrase is used to maintain focus on the problem area and to help release blockages.
Our holistic health framework has been carefully designed to help you get to the root cause of symptoms and provide you with the health tools that you can use for the rest of your life. It is also tailored specifically to your needs and requirements.
We have several routes available for our clients depending on what level of healing they require. Our emotional path utilises both EFT and Matrix Reimprinting together to allow you to tune in and clear any blocked emotional energy within the body.
