EFT

EFT

EFT stands for ‘Emotional Freedom Techniques’ and incorporates the wisdom of Chinese
Acupuncture with Western Cognitive Psychology techniques to ease emotional and physical

discomfort caused by blockages in the body’s energy system.

EFT is a complementary treatment for health and wellbeing. It involves fingertip tapping on
acupuncture points on the body while tuning-in to the issue at hand. This process is thought to send

calming signals to the part of the brain that controls stress.

EFT allows us to release and transform the way uncomfortable feelings like hurt, guilt, fear, or anger
may be affecting our experience. EFT can also be used to help transform the thoughts and beliefs
behind our emotional experiences. After just a few rounds of tapping, people often report feeling
lighter and calmer and able to breathe more easily – almost as if they now have more space inside.
They may report that their thinking has changed, they have gained new insights or that they are

feeling better, overall.

This wonderful self-help tool has gained widespread recognition and is now used by countless
doctors, health practitioners and psychologists around the world to help their patients achieve

beneficial, lasting change in all aspects of their lives.

Tapping “Can Reduce Coronavirus Anxiety”

New research suggests EFT tapping can reduce stress hormone levels

New research carried out by Bond University in Queensland, Australia, and just published in the American Psychological Association Journal, Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy, shows that using EFT can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. (High cortisol levels have been shown to suppress the immune system and have been linked to a wide variety of health problems.)

The research was led by Dr Peta Stapleton, Associate Professor in Psychology at Bond University. “We were looking at changes in stress biochemistry and psychological distress symptoms,” she said. “We compared levels of cortisol in three groups of patients, one having EFT, the second having PE (‘psychoeducation’ such as supportive interviews) and the third having no treatment. We found that those having EFT had a 43% decrease in cortisol levels compared to 19% for the PE group. The third group showed a 2% rise (suggesting that stress does not go away by just resting).

These findings mirror the results of similar EFT research carried out in 2012, and further confirm that EFT can be an efficient and effective short-term treatment for reducing biological markers of
stress.”
