MIND & BODY ALTERNATIVES
Type your paragraph here.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is said to be a cross between ancient Chinese acupressure and modern day psychology. It is one of the most widely used energy psychology modalities because it gently and swiftly releases negative and traumatic events that are frozen in time in the mind/body system.
These events can negatively influence how a person sees the world, experiences and regulates emotion and relates to other people.
EFT involves acupressure and mental-emotional focus. Fundamentally, one taps lightly or touches specific meridian acu-points while focusing on an event or emotions. Using EFT, a person is able to reduce the negative impact, memories and past events, thereby reducing physical and emotional pain. Once the pain is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself.
As we travel through life, we assign meaning to the events that occur to and around us. When we have a negative experience, especially when we're young, we form associations in our mind between the event and the negative impact it had. Our emotional reaction is tied to the memory of the event.
Part of our subconscious has the job of keeping us safe and is constantly looking for threat to our well-being. It is constantly comparing our current circumstances to these negative memories of the past. If something happens now that is identified in any way remotely similar to a prior experience, in which we learned to respond in a particular way, that information can be utilized to guide our reaction to the current event.
Simply, EFT gets to the root of what's going on,
balances the mind and body, changing what we
do, how we feel and how we experience the world.
