What is EFT?
EFT, stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, and is commonly known as Tapping. Introduced in the 1970's with major research being conducted in the 1990's, this technique shot to the forefront of the rapidly advancing world of energy psychology in the last decade. It is a powerful, yet simple self-help tool that can be used to heal unresolved trauma, release repressed feelings, transmute beliefs, and radically transform your life.
Clinical studies show that EFT has profound effects on the nervous system and stress regulation. It is an effective tool for stress, anxiety, pain, PTSD, weight gain, depression, and other conditions. It’s an evidence-based method that produces measurable results and desired health outcomes. One of the things I love most about this modality is that it can be used anytime, anywhere, by anyone. I have been tapping with my daughter since she was 2 years old. It helps to calm her nervous system when anxiety is high, emotions are big and sleep is a challenge. EFT is a proven technique to manage stress in the mind and body and it's an amazing tool as a parent.

Tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a powerful, yet simple and effective, self-help technique. It allows the release and integration of feelings and emotions in a safe and empowering way. Using a combination of talk therapy and acupressure points, it directly influences the body's automatic defence response, also known as Fight-or-Flight. Tapping is an exceptional tool for addressing trauma, limiting beliefs, PTSD, anxiety, weight gain, sleep problems, chronic pain and so much more. It's an evidence-based method that produces measurable results and desired health outcomes.
When you have a negative emotion, for example a fear, worry or unresolved problem, it triggers a part of your brain called the amygdala. Stress-related hormones are released into the bloodstream as a result. Also known as fight-or-flight response, this is the body's normal reaction to a perceived threat. This is effective when there is real-life danger, but it is not helpful during our day-to-day lives. Tapping on the same points used in acupressure, while you are acknowledging your negative emotions, helps your brain understand that you are not in real physical danger and it's safe to relax, thus reducing cortisol levels.
Tapping points are the end of energy meridians located at different points on the body. You tap with the fingertips following a sequence. The tapping points, in sequence, are as follows:
Side of the hand (Karate Chop) - between the wrist and the bottom knuckle on the pinky finger.
Top of the head - directly in the centre of the top of the head.
Eyebrow - the beginning of the brow, just above and to the side of the nose.
Side of the eye - on the bone at the outside corner of the eye.
Under the eye - on the bone under the eye, approximately 1 inch below the pupil.
Under the nose - the point between the nose and upper lip.
Chin point - halfway between the underside of the lower lip and the bottom of the chin.
Beginning of the collarbone - the point where the breastbone (sternum), collarbone, and first rib intersect.
Under the arm - at the side of the body, approximately 4 in below the armpit.
Under the chest - about three inches below the nipple, just below where the breast connects with the chest/ribs in women.
It is a safe, effective and easy to learn technique that can be used by anyone, anytime, anywhere. Tapping can be used on a daily basis to support your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. Developing a consistent tapping practice is key to:
