What is the Emotional Freedom Technique?
Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a psychological acupressure technique that can be routinely used and is highly recommend to optimise your emotional health. Although a great deal of focus is often placed upon physical health, emotional health is essential to healthy physical and psychological functioning. Without free movement of energy in the body, even the best lifestyle choices may not see the full benefit if there are blocks present.
EFT can help you:
- Remove long standing negative emotions
- Reduce food cravings
- Reduce or eliminate pain
- Implement positive goals
EFT is based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture – derived from ancient Chinese medicine – and has been used to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the use of needles. A simple tapping technique with the fingertips, used at specific points on the body when needed, is used to input kinetic energy into the body to dissolve emotional blocks whilst the problem is being held in mind, as well as voicing positive affirmations.
As the body is a bio-electrical system it is constantly creating and moving energy internally, and when long standing issues are not attended to or released in a healthy way, blockages can become present in the body which can affect healthy functioning – also known as homeostasis. When these blocks are removed, patients often report a feeling of lightness and freedom, hence the name.
What can EFT help with?

- Fears & Phobias
- Pain Management
- Panic Attacks

Taking the healing process into your own hands
EFT can be used anywhere, anytime, which makes it a very attractive solution for many people. Being able to utilise this technique whenever required is incredibly empowering and makes it possible to work consistently on yourself.
With the guidance of a professional in a safe secure environment you are able to explore and get to the root cause of the issue. This can range from a situation that worries you, an unhealthy emotion that you would like freedom from or a goal you would like to achieve.
From here, the practitioner can suggest a specific routine that will best work for you. As tapping requires no equipment, you can use it as a tool, especially in challenging or demanding situations.
A typical EFT consultation session will last approximately 60 minutes, however may take less time depending on the specific issue you would like to work with. In a relaxed and secure environment you can explore with your practitioner the area you would like to focus on and you will be asked questions to locate the specific blockage. From here a tapping routine will be recommended based on your personal requirements.
Follow up appointments are suggested by the practitioner dependant on the nature of the issue you are working on, and tapping routines can be adjusted as required.
It is recommended that you advise your EFT practitioner if you are undergoing any other form of therapy or medication.
