EFT has many benefits besides being a stress relief technique. EFT is easy to do, and there's no special equipment required. The wonderful thing is that most people can do treatment sessions on their own, anywhere they need to.
EFT helps with a myriad of conditions. Tapping has been used to help with PTSD (or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), quitting smoking, emotional fears and stressors, and many other issues. There are a variety of videos on YouTube that can enable you to learn the how-to's and hear other people's successes and the benefits they have received from using this technique.
Of course, if you are dealing with a significant trauma or a difficult situation, you may benefit from working alongside a trained medical practitioner or a certified EFT practitioner directly. Thanks to how successful EFT is, there are many practitioners employing EFT all over the world. Many will work with you over the phone or via Skype or Zoom, making it flexible to keep a schedule with them and work through your issues together.
Calming Your Mind With EFT
Tapping is an effective tool for calming your body or mind in the moment. It is very liberating to rely on yourself and not someone else for calming yourself down. Especially when some issue arises in the moment, you can't just scamper away for a full EFT session. Being responsible for how you are feeling and thinking as opposed to waiting for someone else to change their behavior, attitude or mood so that you can feel better is very empowering.
Releasing Negative Factors
EFT is an excellent tool to have in your arsenal for preventing disease. Not only does it improve the energy flow within the body and stimulate the energy meridians, but it helps to ground your body's electrical energy system by fully connecting you to your physical body.
Negative energy that is trapped in the body thrives on worry, anxiety, tension and stress. It's important for us to release that negativity in order to live a healthier life.
Being in a chronically unhealthy state can lead to illnesses including: back pain, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, TMJ, depression, ulcers, chronic stress disorder, colitis, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, migraines, ulcers and tension headaches among other issues.
One of the great benefits of this therapy is that anyone can learn the techniques of EFT tapping. Then they can pass that learning on to their family and family. Another wonderful attribute is that this is a totally portable treatment. You can do it at home or simply excuse yourself and go to the bathroom or car. Then you can tap when you are out in public and need to release some quick tension.
Some people have even mastered the skill of “Mental Tapping”. They do EFT by imagining they are tapping on their energy meridians and only using their mind. You can do this as you are falling asleep or first thing in the morning upon waking. When you are relaxed, sore, or too tired to lift your arm, mental tapping can be especially helpful. This is great to use as a backup when out in public as well.
I love to connect!
