Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is often referred to as psychological acupressure. It’s a bit like acupuncture but without the needles. An EFT treatment involves tapping on the end points of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin.
The tapping is carried out by the client with the assistance of the therapist. Positive phrases are repeated along with the tapping resulting in a more positive outlook and frame of mind. Negative patterns and behaviour can be altered using EFT and clients can easily use it on themselves, once they have learned the simple technique. EFT can be used to treat fears, phobias and pain. It can also be applied to help stop smoking and lose weight.
