Emotional Freedom Technique
Proven to Relieve Anxiety
EFT Tapping is a tool you can use in the moment to relieve anxiety. It is easy to learn and proven to lower anxiety. There are no known side effects.
It’s surprising how many women who have been in therapy don’t have effective tools. It’s surprising because there are so many tools proven to lower anxiety. And when anxiety is lowered, it makes literally everything in your life much easier.
What Clients are Saying:
“Every time I do EFT tapping, it works.”
“I have so many tools to use to help myself. I feel so much better than when we first started and people see it.”
Life gets easier because when you are anxious, everything revolves around trying to not be anxious. Meanwhile problems mount up. It’s an exhausting cycle you may feel you can’t break free from, creating even more anxiety.
This is why the first part of anxiety treatment is to have tools for your tool kit. Clients often repeat to themselves what they’ve been taught “tools, tools, tools.”
What is EFT?
EFT is self-administered by tapping on specific acupoints on your upper body while focusing on the issue or problem. Sometimes called acupuncture without needles, it sends a calming signal to the brain thus lowering anxiety.
EFT can be used in sessions to help you resolve difficult emotions. It is common to avoid intense feelings for fear of becoming overwhelmed. Avoiding these feelings allows them to get bigger and scarier.
EFT is a gentle approach you can use on your own. Once mastered it gives you courage to face even the darkest emotions without becoming overpowered or stuck. In this way, EFT allows you to feel comfortable and do your therapy work at a pace that is right for you.
