Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is commonly referred to as “acupuncture without the needles”. You lightly tap with your fingertips on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture. At the same time you are tapping, you are focusing on strong emotion, a sensation in the body, or a stressful event.
Tapping on these specific points calms emotional triggers, regulates the nervous system, reduces cortisol and stress hormones, and balances the body’s energy system. The conditioned feedback loop of trauma is broken and it stays broken. Therefore, thinking about the trauma no longer evokes a stress response in the brain. EFT stops the fear response quickly and permanently.
Why EFT is great for children?
EFT is highly effective for children because they don’t have many layers to their issues. They are also more open to it because they just want to feel better. Children who carry burden don’t know what to do with it or how to regulate it. EFT is a simple tool to learn, so it’s great for all ages. EFT doesn’t require belief, which is helpful when working with older children, who are resistant. The following are a few situations that EFT is effective for…..worries, fears, everyday traumas, bullying, loss of a pet, moving, divorce, loss of a friend, traumas, anxiety, having no one come to a birthday, as well as great for building self-esteem.
