EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, (sometimes called tapping). It is an innovative energy-oriented coaching and self-help technique that’s based on the newly emerging field of energy psychology.

Simply put, the goal of EFT is to deal with energy imbalances, and the influence of thoughts, beliefs and emotions on your body. The premise of EFT is that negative emotions are caused by disruptions your body’s energy system. It’s believed EFT helps clear these disruptions, restoring balance, which is important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health.

So, how do you do EFT?

EFT uses the ancient Chinese meridian system - like in acupuncture - with a gentle tapping procedure to stimulate specific points on your face and body.  In essence, you use your own fingers to tap on the easy-to-reach acupuncture points of your body, while saying specific phrases and focusing on issues with an emotional charge, so you can release their intensity and reframe the issues.

Not only can it lessen stress, but it can also be helpful in working through those mental blocks that may be keeping you from getting where you want to go.

It can become the most powerful ally in your relationship with food.

Negative emotions and memories are often at the root of destructive eating patterns. When you can release the emotional blocks that drive unhealthy eating, you can potentially let go of using food in a destructive way. You can also use it to potentially combat cravings. If you find yourself in an ‘emergency’ situation, faced with tempting but unhealthy foods when you’re not really hungry, EFT can potentially short-circuit your cravings and allow you to walk away.

To date, EFT has been one of the most impactful and beneficial tools I've found for weight management and personal growth.

You may already understand the emotions driving your poor eating habits, but you'll also likely need powerful tools to move past them.

*Although EFT appears to have promising emotional, spiritual and physical health benefits and there is a growing amount of scientific research indicating that EFT is an effective evidence-supported method, EFT has yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities and, therefore, is considered experimental.  The practice of EFT is self-regulated and the State of California does not license EFT practitioners and considers EFT to be an alternative or complementary medicine approach.
