How does EFT tapping work?

It has similarities to Acupuncture, EFT focuses on the meridian points or energy hotspots to restore balance to your bodies energy. EFT tapping uses fingertips Tapping to apply pressure. EFT tapping may help you to access your bodies energy and send signals to the parts of the brain that control stress.

What are the pressure points for tapping?

There are the eight main tapping points and one points on your hand known as the karate chop point on the heel or side of your hand. The other eight points are, your eyebrow, side of your eye, under your eye, under your nose, your chin, your collarbone, under your arm and on top of your head.

It is based on Chinese medicine; Meridian points are thought of as areas of the energy bodies flows through. These pathways help balance energy flow to maintain your health because any imbalance can influence disease or sickness.

EFT Tapping in Five Steps:

Identifying the issue

Firstly, we identified the issue in order for this technique to be affective, this will be the focal point why are you are tapping, focusing one problem at a time to enhance your outcome.

Testing the initial intensity:

After the problem area is identified a benchmark level of intensity is set. The intensity level is rated on a scale from 0 to 10 with 10 being the most difficult or intense. The scale assesses the emotional or physical pain and discomfort someone might feel from the issue. Also by stab leash in a benchmark it helps to monitor the progress after performing a complete EEFT sequence. If your initial intensity was 10 prior to tapping and ended it for you have accomplished a good improvement level, however it is my aim when I’m in clinic with my clients to get them at a 0 or 1.

The setup phrase:

When I’m with a client prior to tapping we always need to establish a phrase that explains what they are trying to address it needs to focus on two main goals, acknowledging the issues and excepting oneself despite the problem. A common set up phrase is’ even though I have this……. Fear or problem, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

EFT tapping sequence:

There are 12 major meridians that mirror each side of the body and correspond to an internal organ EEFT or emotional freedom technique usually focuses on these nine.

  • Small intestine Meridian- karate chop point
  • Governing vessel-top of the head
  • Bladder meridian-eyebrow point
  • Go bladder meridian – Side of the eye
  • Stomach Meridian – under the eye
  • Governing vessel – under the nose
  • Central vessel – on the chin point
  • Kidney meridian – beginning of the collarbone
  • Spleen Meridian – under the arm

The wording is in essential part of the process because it tells our system what we are working on. Negative emotions will come out because we are tuned into certain thoughts or circumstances which in turn cause our energy systems to disrupt. Once tuned into the issue the tapping stimulates the energies pathways there by balancing the resulting energy disruptions.

Finally, we test the final intensity:

At the end of the sequence I usually get my clients to rate the intensity from 0 to 10 comparing their results with their initial intensity level and if they haven’t reach zero we keep repeating the process.
