What is EFT?
According to the Report of the Surgeon General on Mental Health “many episodes of depression are associated with some sort of acute or chronic adversity”. Since the 1991 launch of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), EFT founder Gary Craig and his many practitioners have worked with hundreds of people with depression. They too have noticed that depression tends to be a result of “acute or chronic adversity.” In EFT terms, however, this is referred to unresolved emotional issues such as such as trauma, guilt, shame, fear, anger and sadness.
Fortunately, EFT offers great potential for these unresolved emotional issues. You can use it to pull out the emotional roots of your depression … and enjoy your life again. The basics of EFT can be learned by anyone and can be self-applied (usually in minutes).
Described as “emotional acupuncture”, EFT draws from the principles of acupuncture (stimulating the meridian points balances the subtle energies in your body), but instead of using needles, you tap a series of acupuncture points with your fingertips. When your energy system is balanced, the negative emotional responses to past trauma, guilt and anger subside. Without the emotional fuel, depression can’t start its engine.
EFT is a powerful new method based on the discovery that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Scientific studies have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing. Here’s how you can experience this for yourself.
You can make enormous strides by introducing EFT into your emotional therapy process (whether you are a professional or a client). Instead of taking months or years using conventional “talk therapy,” EFT often does the job for you cleanly and thoroughly in one or two sessions … and we sometimes achieve noticeable results in a few brief rounds of EFT. We label these near-instant results as “one minute wonders.”
Once you have seen how well EFT clears out emotional debris, your next step is to notice how physical ailments start to fade. Headaches, back pains and other discomforts often tend to improve or vanish as emotional issues improve (this is the essence of Mind Body Medicine). Your vision may become clearer and everyday stress may take lower toll on your system.
While EFT is considered as very promising approach of alternative depression treatment, do not consider it as a full valid replacement for traditional therapy and anti-depressants, prescribed by your physician.
