Tapping, otherwise known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a combination of Ancient Chinese Acupressure and Modern Psychology.
This simple technique literally involves “tapping” on the meridian points of our body while saying certain statements, all with the goal of reprogramming the brain and body to get different results.
EFT has been known to work for years by psychologists, therapists, coaches and everyday people. In recent years a major push has been made for more evidence based research and the results have been astounding!
Clinical research studies with EFT are providing impressive results in a variety of areas such as relief from anxiety, chronic pain, emotional problems, addictions, phobias, athletic performance, PTSD, and weight loss.
Anxiety in our lives is a result of the nervous system of our brain and body being poorly programmed to unconsciously perceive a heightened level of danger that very often does not exist.
Now that’s not to say that some people do not have actual danger in their lives, but most often with anxiety, our nervous system and the fight or flight system of the amygdala in our brain has reached a point where every day events are bringing us to a heightened state of danger when there is in fact no real danger. Our nervous system has become overly sensitized because of past events and emotions.
But here’s the good news… the latest research is showing that tapping actually sends a calming signal to the amygdala of the brain allowing the brain and body to feel safe, and thus the anxiety to dissipate.
Through Tapping we’re actually able to reprogram the brain to no longer be overly sensitized, allowing us to come back to a more natural, balanced state where we can better differentiate between real threats of danger and everyday events.
