The Name Says it All
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also referred to as “tapping”, is a relatively new technique that’s been gaining popularity amongst therapists. EFT is similar to acupuncture minus the needles. So how does it work? By tapping on your body’s meridians (specific points on the body through which energy flows) while stating positive affirmations, emotional blockage releases allowing healing to occur. The meridians used for EFT include the top of the head, the inside of the eyebrows, the temples, under the eyes, under the nose, the chin, the collar bones, just under the arm pit, and the outside of the hand. The positive affirmation usually consists of acknowledging a specific problem and accepting the self for having this problem. For example, let’s say you feel really anxious before a job interview. While tapping on the designated meridians you might say, “Even though I feel anxious about this big job interview I have coming up, I deeply and profoundly accept myself.”
- Identify your problem and be specific!
- Identify the intensity of your problem on a scale of 1-10
- Start tapping on the side of the hand while saying, “Even though (insert specific issue), I deeply and profoundly accept myself.”
- Continue to state your affirmation while tapping through all the designated points.
- Stop, take a deep breath, and evaluate the intensity of your problem.
- If you feel better, that may be all you need. If you still feel your problem is at a high level of intensity, continue tapping and stating your affirmation.
