Works with Families and Children
“I teach EFT to all my clients, even children,” says Susan Quinn, “because I think it’s a wonderful tool for managing anxiety and other emotions. The most amazing thing about EFT is that even in times when unexpected emotions arise, such as fear or anxiety, a person has a toolbox to use and knows how to reduce their fear.”
It doesn’t matter whether your goal is to remove emotional pain quickly or remove physical pain quickly. The short-term therapy of EFT can bring relief from phobias, depression, grief, rape, natural disasters, crime, childhood sexual abuse, post traumatic stress and more.
“The beliefs that have the most power are unconscious, so they have to be carefully teased out,” Susan Quinn says. “But these techniques provide tangible relief from the time they’re tried for most people.”
What is EFT?
EFT therapy uses the mind body connection to release fear and shame and painful emotional states. The mind body connection causes the body to go where the mind goes. So when we think of a painful memory, our body immediately reproduces that feeling as if it is happening now. It could have happened decades ago but it feels like it is happening right now. So EFT makes use of Meridian Tapping which releases the body from the mind’s thought. Now we can look at that memory with no emotional attachment. This is a different perspective which frees us to release the painful emotions that we have experienced every time we think of that memory. The reason this is useful is these painful feelings about a memory cause us to feel low self esteem and depression and to feel flawed in ways that keep us from accomplishing things in our life.
EFT works by triggering sub-cortical activity below the level of conscious control (in the amygdala and hippocampus). A body of documented scientific studies prove the benefits are real. See the dramatic results in this study
Emotional Freedom Therapy was developed by Gary Craig, who simplified Roger Callahan’s revolutionary Thought Field Therapy (TFT). A TFT therapist follows complex tapping sequences (protocols) for numerous symptoms. By contrast, EFT taps on the same meridian points on the face and body for every problem.
EFT tapping works directly on the energy points (meridian system) of the body. Like acupuncture, relief comes in part from stimulating the meridians. But instead of needles, the person’s meridians are tapped with the fingers. Whether EFT is performed by a therapist or self-applied, over 80% of people achieve either noticeable improvement or complete cessation of the problem.
