Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping
Online therapy available for Georgia and Florida women who wish to incorporate EFT Tapping into their therapy experience.
What is EFT Tapping?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping is a combination of 8 well accepted mechanisms in psychology that facilitates rapid emotional, cognitive, and physical processing of distressing events. EFT is a beneficial treatment for anxiety that works by calming the nervous system and regulating emotions. It is also an effective technique for reducing or eliminating phobias completely, sometimes very quickly. EFT is also an incredibly powerful means for resolving trauma once and for all.
We all experience various forms of trauma in our lives. From day-to-day interactions that leave their mark on us, to large event Traumas that we all recognize easily. And the impact that trauma has on our lives is considerable. By reprocessing and completely processing trauma, or adverse events, we eliminate the charge on your nervous system once and for all. EFT Tapping is effective at completing the processing of incompletely processed experiences.
This is why EFT Tapping resolves trauma once and for all. It’s not just a coping mechanism; it’s a resolution mechanism. In fact, Harvard Medical School Psychiatrist Eric Leskowitz, MD, says it’s “the most powerful intervention I’ve encountered in 25 years of work.” Meanwhile, world renowned trauma researcher Bessel van der Kolk, MD, has said, “I could not do my trauma work without Tapping.”
How Does EFT Tapping Work?
- Imaginal Exposure
- Somatic, Emotional and Cognitive Activation (CNS Activation)
- Amygdala/Prefrontal Cortex Rewiring & Deactivation
- Information Processing & Reprocessing
- Cognitive Restructuring
- Memory Re-consolidation and
- Eye Movement and Reprocessing.
We can incorporate EFT into as much of our work as you like in order to provide you with as much relief as soon as possible. EFT Tapping Intensives are also available for anyone wanting an “individualized workshop” approach to facilitate as much progress as possible in a half-day or full day format.
If you have any questions about the above, please feel free to email me.
Scientific Research Regarding EFT Tapping
In a randomized controlled trial of fifty veterans diagnosed with PTSD, 86% of them no longer met criteria for this diagnosis after only 6 sessions with EFT. (You can read the story of RM here in the National Center for Biotechnology Information.) Furthermore, participants sustained this result over 3 and 6 month rechecks.
Another study measured a dramatic reduction in participants’ cortisol levels (24-50%) after Tapping. Cortisol is a hormone that regulates stress in our bodies and contributes to the disease process.
These are just two of many studies yielding compelling results. I encourage you to read more at EFT International’s Research Page, where you can choose the topics that interest you most via the dropdown menu.
