What is EFT? Emotional Freedom Technique

Learn basics of EFT Tapping Points with Susan Cowe Miller - Hampshire EFT

 In a nutshell, by tapping specific points on your skin you send signals to the brain to change patterns of thought and emotion. This process has been described as acupuncture without needles and works because it activates the same energy system that acupuncturists use. EFT was founded by Gary Craig he developed EFT to enhance the performance of the people he was coaching.

Gary discovered that by tapping certain acupuncture points on the upper part of the body whilst thinking about a problem, all manner of symptoms were alleviated.  Sometimes the change happened in minutes. “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” Gary Craig.

So what is energy? Energy is the blueprint of the body it can be seen as the invisible foundation of your body, from which everything else is built. The Chinese have known about this for 5,000 years and have used acupuncture to shift a person’s energy to improve a state of mind and physical health. These energies are electromagnetic impulses that can be recorded by MRI and PET scans.

Your energy field changes when you have an emotionally charged experience, this can lead physical problems or unhelpful attitudes and stress. Tapping releases the energy blocks that cause the problems. ..........................

If you think of a time in your life when something stressful or frightening happened, you can probably remember physical changes in your body that went along with it.

The classic responses are increased heart rate, sweaty palms, shallow breathing, and often a tightening in the chest or stomach area.

But there are also changes that happen on a biochemical level. And if the stressful or fearful event is an extreme one, or if it recurs over time, those biochemical changes can lead to serious long-term health consequences.

One of the most important hormones in our body’s stress response is cortisol. This hormone actually regulates other hormones, and is therefore important to many critical aspects of a healthy functioning body.

When we are stressed, anxious, or frightened, our cortisol levels increase, and this spells trouble for our bodies. Prolonged high levels of cortisol impair the heart, immune system, sexual function, sleep, digestion, respiration, circulation, and can even be responsible for premature aging.

Can Tapping Change My Hormones?

Researchers have cited numerous studies concluding that EFT results in a reduction of anxiety symptoms in people across a wide spectrum of circumstances. This has led to the formulation of theories about what exactly is happening in the body during a Tapping session.

It’s well known, and can easily be experienced by anyone using Tapping, that outward physical changes take place after a series of tapping rounds. This could be noticed by a reduction of pain, the loosening of rigid joints, or perhaps the relaxation of muscles.

But there are those who believe that changes are also taking place at the level of cellular biology and genetic expression. These changes constitute the foundational work in the rapidly developing field of epigenetics.

To help prove this theory, the first step requires the gathering of physical evidence of such a change.

In previous studies, MRI and EEG readings that measure a person’s brain activity have shown that acupuncture or pressure on the acupoints result in visible changes (decreases) in hyper-arousal of the nervous system.

These researchers of this study wanted to take another step in this direction to see if there were corresponding dips in cortisol levels after EFT treatment.

Incredible Results: EFT Actually Lowers Cortisol Levels

After all the elements of the study were analyzed, the researchers found that the cortisol levels of the two control groups had been reduced by 14%, but the EFT group had been reduced by 24%.

For the psychological symptoms, one questionnaire showed a 42% decrease for EFT, a 13% decrease for the non-treatment group, and a 17% decrease for the sympathetic listening group.

On another questionnaire, EFT showed a 51% reduction vs 14% in sympathetic listening and 17% for non-treatment.

Your saliva doesn’t lie! 

The evidence that EFT actually leads to physical changes in the body is growing, thanks now to another piece of research.

EFT is a technique where you tap a series of energy points on your body to gain relief from physical and emotional problems. The system we use today is derived from the knowledge used by Eastern monks and physicians five thousand years ago. Acupuncture,shiatsu and many martial arts are derived from these skills.
