Emotional Freedom Technique
What is EFT?
Here is a description from www.EFTuniverse.com
EFT is a powerful new method based on the discovery that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Scientific studies have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accellerate healing.
- You can make enormous strides by introducing EFT into your emotional therapy process (whether you are a professional or a client). Instead of taking months or years using conventional "talk therapy," EFT often does the job for you cleanly and thoroughly in one or two sessions ... and we sometimes achieve noticeable results in a few brief rounds of EFT. We label these near-instant results as "one minute wonders."
- Once you have seen how well EFT clears out emotional debris, your next step is to notice how physical ailments start to fade. Headaches, back pains and other discomforts often tend to improve or vanish as emotional issues improve (this is the essence of Mind Body Medicine). Your vision may become clearer and everyday stress may take less toll on your system.
- Accordingly, you can apply it to just about everything. That is one of the most astonishing things about it. You use the same basic procedure for your fear of public speaking as you do for improving your golf score. Further, people write on this site on their success with EFT for many emotional issues, including fear, trauma, depression, and grief.
Possible EFT limitations
EFT is not perfect. We don't have a 100% success rate. But it usually works well and the results are sometimes spectacular. EFT can often achieve substantial relief with little or no pain. This is not true for everyone, however. Some people's issues are so intense that the mere mention of them causes emotional or physical pain. But, given time, even these may be resolved efficiently with EFT. If you have serious emotional or physical problems you are advised to consult your physician or licensed mental health practitioner, since EFT is not a substitute for medical or mental health treatment. You are encouraged you to share your experiences with EFT with your healthcare providers.
