How EFT works


It comes from the traditional Chinese medicine Acupuncture (ch’i for “natural energy” or the life power that flows through all living things), that discovered hundreds of meridian points, which are the connected points across the anatomy that affect a specific organ or other parts of the body.


EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture, without needles. Instead, we stimulate certain meridian points on the body by tapping gently on those key acupuncture points with our fingertips to treat physical and emotional ailments, while acknowledging and accepting our emotions.


As you focus on painful feelings or physical symptoms, it may often bring up negative memories that can be cleared allowing us to shift perception. By tapping on these meridian points, you are sending your amygdala the message to relax (the part of the brain governing the “fight or flight” response).
