Emotional Freedom Techniques
After a session with Lou Ellyn and EFT about a trauma when I was fifteen, I can no longer feel upset and stuck when I think about that incident. Instead when I think back I see and feel and remember that I am powerful, that I have options, and that I have people who love me and can help me. – LM
What is EFT?
Say you need to give a presentation or have a difficult conversation. If the idea of this makes you short of breath or anxious, EFT Tapping can clear the “trigger” so you feel more relaxed about speaking up.
EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) balances and restores the body’s natural energies. It involves tapping on acupuncture points on the hands, face, and upper body. Tapping calms stress biochemistry and results in a pleasant feeling of relaxation. EFT helps people become less anxious, more present and grounded. It can also shift self-limiting beliefs and feelings.

Research on EFT
EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 100 different journal articles. The research shows that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. While EFT is still considered experimental in nature, it is gaining scientific support as a result of its increasing body of research in peer-reviewed journals.
