What is EFT Tapping?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a mind / body tool that combines Chinese acupressure with modern psychology and visualisation to clear physical and emotional blockages in your energy system (negative thoughts, memories, and emotions). EFT is based on the idea that, 'The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system.' It is a non-invasive technique which involves using your fingertips to tap on specific meridian points on the body (the same used in acupressure) while focusing on a negative thought, memory or emotion.


Tapping on the meridian points (energy ‘hot-spots’) releases physical and emotional blockages. When these blockages are released, the problem feeling can be released and move through the body. A calming signal is sent to the amygdala in your brain letting your brain know that it is safe to relax.

The amygdala is responsible for triggering the stress response in our bodies, also known as the ‘fight-or-flight’ response. When faced with real-life danger, the amygdala's response is effective, but it can be detrimental when you want to feel calm and confident in every day life.

Gently tapping on these specific points while thinking about what is causing you stress, helps your mind understand that you are not in physical danger and that it is safe to relax. As a result, the amygdala becomes desensitised, cortisol (stress hormone) is lowered, issues are resolved, and negative emotions are released.

What I love most about EFT is how quickly you see results. The results are tangible in just a few minutes of tapping. EFT is so easy to learn and apply and it is a life-long tool which you will have at your disposal to help you whenever you need it.

The Benefits of EFT

  • It will enable you to let go of negative emotions and overcome limiting self-beliefs that may be impeding your potential.

  • You will be able to more effectively prioritise what you want, increase your energy levels, and focus your intention to achieve the success you desire.

  • Perhaps you have a goal you are working towards and something is preventing you from reaching it; with EFT, it can clear any limiting beliefs that may be preventing you from reaching this goal.

  • Perhaps you have had a traumatic experience, EFT we will clear the emotional trauma so that you are not reliving it so vividly - you will let go and move on.

  • You will reconnect with your own wellbeing, nourish your soul, and rediscover your zest for life. You will return to a place of inner peace.

  • EFT reduces cortisol (also known as the stress hormone). This reduction aids your body's ability to fight inflammation and boost your immune system.

  • EFT regulates the nervous system and boosts the immune system by putting the body back into the parasympathetic (relaxation) nervous system response. This allows the immune system, digestive system, reproductive system, and endocrine system to function as it should.

  • EFT is easy to learn and can be applied to any area of your life.

  • Positive results can be seen quickly.
