What is EFT tapping? What is its foundation and what is the science behind it.
The Energy Body & its connection to mind and emotions
EFT – The Universal Healing Aid
There are various methods for releasing or diluting negative emotions – the unresolved negative issues to be precise – especially in the field of Energy Healing, which addresses disruptions, congestion, or imbalance in the subtle energies in the body. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is one of the easiest and proved to be among the most effective ways to address underlying unresolved issues and help us take back the control of our life, attract abundance and well-being.
EFT is based on the ancient 5000 years old well-established healing method of acupuncture which relies on the fact that energy runs through nerve-like structure throughout the body, called meridians. Occasionally these pathways get blocked and create an imbalance in the body’s energy system and applying pressure or tapping on certain points, also known as acupoints, can release these blockages and bring our mind and body back into balance, improving general well being and balances the subtle energies in our body. EFT is also called modern acupuncture without needles. A gentle tapping technique is used on acupressure points located on the head, hands, and chest whilst also focusing the mind on a specific issue or problem. This is said to release any negative emotions that may be causing a disruption in the body’s energy system which could be manifesting itself as either a psychological or physical issue.
Gary Craig, a Stanford engineer, is the founder of this method, remembered as giving the world the biggest gift of self-healing. He is the one who is also credited with the spread of awareness of this method among masses. His genius doesn’t only lay in simplifying the process and adding refinement but to produce and document results by applying this method on various physical, emotional, and mental discomfort and diseases. Because of his dedicated work and research today this method is used with confidence by common people and veterans alike around the globe.
Here is an introduction video by Craig himself which shows us how EFT works and what results we can expect from this method.
