Emotional Freedom Technique is an alternative healing method used to treat physical pain and emotional distress. It is also known as tapping or psychological acupressure. EFT involves tapping the acupressure points located near the ends of the energy circuits / meridians that flow through the body. It is proposed that tapping helps to stimulate the meridian points and reduce the blockages in these energy channels, thereby helping to create an energy balance and treat pain. Pressure is applied using the fingertips of the index or middle finger, while the individual focuses on the specific feeling, thought or image that causes emotional distress. Tapping stimulates the release of beta-endorphin by the brain. Pairing the beta-endorphin release with focus on negative feelings or beliefs, is believed to help metabolize away negative thoughts and beliefs which then allows the emergence of mental clarity and the ability to introduce more functional self-beliefs. EFT is typically used to manage anxiety and depressive symptoms and their associated physical symptoms (i.e. low energy levels, headaches, muscle tension, sleep difficulties etc.); Eliminate self-limiting beliefs; Strengthen healthy, positive, adaptive self-beliefs (an antidote to low self-esteem). Common tapping locations are: Top of the Head, Third Eye (middle of the forehead about an inch above the eyes), Start of the Eyebrow, Corner of the Eye, Under the Eye, Under the Nose, Under the Mouth, and the Collarbone Point. It can take several rounds of EFT in order to achieve the maximum effect.
