Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a type of psychological acupressure. There are no needles involved; instead fingertips are used to tap the acupressure points, while you think or speak about something that may be troubling you.
The theory behind the therapy is that a build-up of physical and emotional trauma can disrupt the body’s energy system. Over time this can lead to limiting ailments, such as illness, which can prevent the body from functioning properly.
EFT is designed to re-energise the system while helping people to flush out limiting beliefs at a subconscious level.
Below we explore some of the reasons why people turn to EFT to support their healing and why you should try it today:
