What is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping?
EFT or Tapping has been described as “acupuncture for emotions, without the needles.” It has its roots in ancient Chinese medicine and the modern science of Applied Kinesiology. It is a simple, gentle, yet powerful technique that children and adults can use to manage their emotions, fears, traumas and even physical pain.
It consists of gentle tapping with the fingertips on specific points of the face and body while focusing on a specific problem, such as fear, and stating phrases about that fear.
By doing so, our thoughts and emotions calm, allowing the mind and body to feel better. This removes the energetic and emotional imbalance in the body that creates the fear.
How can this be? Well, the body’s operating system is electrical and chemical. Thus, Tapping stimulates this electrical system positively, which in turn stimulates the body’s natural chemical system. Instead of producing stress hormones and chemicals that weaken the immune system, the body thereby produces relaxing and healing hormones and chemicals that strengthen the immune system and improve health.
But first, a little background on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sympathetic nervous system of the brain releases stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, in response to real danger, as well as to our negative and fearful emotions. They prepare the body for fight or flight by increasing heart rate, preparing muscles for physical activity and more. If the body is perpetually stressed out or on alert, one becomes more susceptible to illness, as this chronic stress reduces the overall strength of the immune system.
The parasympathetic nervous system of the brain, on the other hand, prepares the body for relaxation, cell regeneration and digestion, which strengthens the immune system. Scientific studies have indicated that EFT is helpful in boosting one’s emotional and physical state of being by reducing the amount of cortisol released in the body (see References), thus aiding the parasympathetic nervous system.
Physical Recovery is Enhanced with a Positive Attitude
When dealing with a serious illness, it is important to have a strong immune system in order to aid recovery. It is well-known that a positive, cheerful attitude improves the immune system. Reducing feelings of fear, anxiety, anger and upset plays an important part in helping the body to recover from a serious illness.
As mentioned above, it has been scientifically demonstrated that EFT or Tapping can calm the sympathetic nervous system, thus reducing stress hormones such as cortisol. In doing so, it allows the parasympathetic nervous system to actively help in the regeneration process, calming the mind and body and boosting the immune system. The body’s natural default pathway is to heal. With EFT, it is possible to support that natural process as well as to feel good emotionally.
Benefits of Tapping:

- Helps the person visualize his/her healing process
- Provides the person a tool to manage and improve his/her feelings and emotions

One doesn’t need to suffer to heal.
The emotional and physical healing process can be filled with peace, joy, love and laughter. Tapping is a technique that helps make this possible.
Tapping to Live a Full Life
I have helped children and their families manage the emotions of fear, sadness, anger, frustration, apathy and helplessness they feel. I teach children and families how to apply Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping) so that they can be applied to reduce pain and pain, and simultaneously improve their ability to manage and manage their emotions. One of the biggest benefits of EFT is that it is quick and easy to use. In very little time – minutes – a child or adult can relax and feel calm. The results of Tapping have been powerful, encouraging and deeply poignant.
Techniques such as Tapping empower children and adults by enabling them to make good decisions and choices. When we have the tools and knowledge to improve our emotional state, we feel stronger and at peace.
