Emotional Freedom Technique is a technique based on the body’s energy and meridians (energy channels). Sometimes called “Tapping” or “Meridian Tapping”, it is a psychological acupressure technique that helps link the positive flow of energy through the body with positive thoughts and positive behavior. When there is a disruption in the flow of energy, it can result in negative emotions, including pain. Tapping on specific meridian points, combined with positive, affirming statements, can clear negative blockages in the body’s energy. Tapping works with the subconscious mind to restore health and positive energy. EFT can be used to help relieve chronic pain, emotional problems, addictions, phobias and other conditions. EFT uses the traditional Chinese medicine concepts of acupuncture and acupressure as well as hypnosis and neuro-linguistic programming. This modality can be used alone or in conjunction with other health or dental treatments.
