Emotional freedom techniques is a psychotherapeutic tool that intends to relieve many psychological conditions, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions and phobias.
Emotional freedom techniques is versatile and has been used confidently by hundreds of therapists on thousands of clients with successes on even the most difficult problems, by relieving imbalances in their clients’ energy systems.
Emotional freedom techniques is about returning the mind, body and feelings to a state of balance and harmony so you are not limited by negative emotions. The basic theory of emotional freedom techniques is that all negative emotions are caused by a disturbance to your energy system. This is the same energy system that is used by acupuncture practitioners — the meridian system. EFT often works where every other treatment fails.
Emotional freedom techniques will not work on every single issue, but it appears to be effective 90% of the time. Using emotional freedom techniques for all aspects of a particular negative emotion (feelings and negative thought patterns associated with a situation) increases it’s effectiveness. Emotional freedom techniques seems to produce permanent effects for many conditions.
If a condition returns, repeated EFT sessions will usually release the condition and treating all “aspects” of the problem stabilises the results. EFT is not intended to be a replacement for psychotherapy or other mental health services and those suffering from chronic psychological or neurological conditions are strongly urged to consult appropriately qualified professionals.
