Emotional Freedom Technique
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping is an Energy Psychology technique that uses the meridian points to help balance energy in the body. This concept of stimulating meridian points comes from Chinese Medicine. Just like acupuncture stimulates the energy flow through the meridians with needles so does EFT. However, EFT doesn’t use needles instead we use your finger points. I guide you through the tapping sequence while you remember a feeling or unresolved issue. After one round of tapping clients usually experience less intense sensations in the body when they remember the event or feeling. The ultimate goal is to reduce the bodily sensations when remembering a trigger or emotion to zero activation.
Dawson Church did research on what happens in the body when people use tapping and he found that cortisol levels were lowered. This is very exciting because stress increases cortisol and this method can lower it.
Once the sensations in the body are reduced then it is much easier to implement cognitive techniques to manage any symptoms that may be left if any.
Comprehensive Energy Psychology (CEP) Technique
EFT works majority of the time. However, sometimes our energy systems are not working correctly. If this is the case I will use CEP technique to muscle test (just like chiropractors and acupuncturists) to see if the energy is flowing correctly. If it isn’t there are corrective exercises that are given. Once the energy flow is resolved then we move onto removing any subconscious blocks. We muscle test for these blocks. Then we muscle test for the best treatment either tapping, chakras, or biofield. The charkras are energy centers throughout the body. I will educate you on them and then help to clear what is stuck and this will help resolve the symptoms. The biofield is your aura and this is another energy field that can have stuck energy which we then clear and symptoms resolve.
So, if you are open or looking for an alternative to straight talk therapy these methods have been very effective with past clients who struggle with anxiety, traumas and phobias. Most clients have symptoms resolved for specific issues within a short period of time.
