Emotional Freedom Technique is also known as Tapping and works by releasing blockages within the energy system.
For centuries Chinese medicine has stated that there is a flow of energy through the body and we can experience physical and mental difficulties if this energy is thrown out of balance.
Negative emotions are caused by this disruption in the energy system and by tapping on the ancient meridian points used in acupuncture and acupressure, we can clear out the experience of discomfort and imbalance and return ourselves to a natural state of feeling good.
Tapping can be used on feelings that we are experiencing in the present and also on feelings that have been caused by our past. It helps to reduce anxiety by lowering the production of the stress hormone cortisol in our body and gives us the resources to make the positive changes we want in our lives.
