Emotional Freedom Technique
Tapping, Fingertips, Nervous system...
Gary Craig, the original creator of this technique has defined it as "an emotional version of acupuncture except that we don’t use needles. Instead, we stimulate certain release points by tapping on them with our fingertips." The EFT technique bases its principles on Eastern traditional medicine, Chinese in particular for which meridians represents its basis, Western modern medicine and psychology.
The nervous system in the human body is what regulates our responses to external stimuli, such as our senses and also the event response process. A stress response is generated by a memory, thoughts and past traumas that haven’t been properly processed in our body-mind system and keep creating a stressed response even after months and years after they happened.
BENEFITS: The Emotional Freedom technique offers the benefit of breaking down a big issue into small parts. Tapping with your fingertips on particular points in your body allows the nervous system to relax, softening the emotional response that you inherited with events and beliefs.
