Demo #4 for EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique

Demonstration on how to use EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique with a patient with stress. EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is the best known among the many offshoots of Thought Field Therapy. Gary Craig is the originator of this energy psychology meridian therapy. There are certainly more similarities than differences between EFT and TFT. The main difference is that Gary Craig came to believe, correctly in my opinion, that the order of the specific tapping sequences for the algorithms was superfluous. This is in accord with the basic tenants of applied kinesiology and Touch for Health. In these disciplines there are times when treating one acupuncture point might reestablish the balance in several meridians or conditions, but for almost all problems the exact sequence of the treatment is irrelevant. The other main difference between EFT and TFT is that Gary Craig streamlined his approach and essentially developed a one size fits all system. He believes that if all 14 meridian points are stimulated almost all problems, regardless of the type, will be resolved.

An EFT treatment includes the use of fingertips instead of needles to tap on the end points of power meridians that are situated just below the surface area of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive as well as services the values of making modification as easy and as discomfort free as feasible.

EFT is a common sense method that draws its power from Eastern explorations that have actually been around for over 5,000 years. Albert Einstein likewise told us back in the 1920's that whatever (including our bodies) is made up of energy. These concepts have been greatly neglected by Western Healing Practices and as they are introduced in our current times, human process is resuming itself to the forgotten truth that whatever is Power as well as the potential that this offers us.

In the brief time since it's inception by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has actually given hundreds of people with remedy for all type of troubles and also conditions, commonly in amazingly double-quick time as well as after lengthy as well as uncomfortable periods of searching for a treatment. The variety of effective treatments have ranged from injury as well as abuse, phobias, self screwing up behaviour patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of anxiousness and clinical depression, addictions, physical disease, to name but a few.

EFT is upstaging the broad spectrum of recovery specialists; from the scientists to the fortune-tellers and everyone in between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old as well as brand-new standards.

EFT restores awareness as well as count on the natural recovery capacities of our body and mind, offering ground-breaking opportunities to attaining physical as well as emotional well-being in a faster time frame.

Since the techniques are so easy, they could be used effectively as a self-help device, which encourages individuals to proactively contribute to their own healing and advancement process. This helps with a much faster relief process, previously believed impossible by medical care specialists who promoted extensive (& usually unpleasant) hours in psychotherapeutic or treatment, often with limited results. These techniques do not challenge the medical and also psychotherapeutic careers, but rather offer to add to an all natural healing process.

EFT functions to get rid of such interruptions and remove the resulting emotional response or strength to recover emotional harmony and also deal relief from physical discomfort.

This is done by focusing on the particular problem whilst touching with fingers on completion factors of energy meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our power system, whilst discovering and also focusing on root causes, facilitates a "correcting" of the energy system thereby getting rid of the "short circuit" to the body's discovered feedback or negative emotion.

It began in 1980, with a psycho therapist by the name of Roger Callahan, and also an individual with a severe fear of water. Mary's concern of water controlled her life and also maintained her from daily tasks.

Callahan and Mary had actually been servicing this problem together for over a year. Finally, Mary worked up the courage to rest within sight of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's home. Also doing this triggered Mary severe distress, as well as though she located means to manage the intense worry as well as emotional pain, she did not overcome her fear. They reviewed her issue, and ways to conquer it, however without success.

Dr. Callahan had actually lately been researching standard Chinese medications, as well as discovering about meridians. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture factor for the tummy meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, thinking it may treat her tummy pains.

Also much more surprisingly, her phobia of water went away, too! She ran down to the pool and also began spraying herself with water, rejoicing in her newly found freedom from fear.

Based on this discovery, Dr. Callahan started a collection of examinations to create and refine this technique, which he called Idea Field Therapy. Gary Craig educated under Dr. Callahan's tutelage in the 1990's, discovering the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig started to observe some troubles with TFT, aspects that he saw were unneeded complications.

TFT needed experts to touch on a certain series of meridians (called an algorithm) for each and every different problem. Identifying the problem needed a technique called muscle testing, where the expert would certainly determine the family member stamina of a muscle, while the individual discovered various thoughts or statements.

Craig observed duplicated circumstances where the problem was incorrectly detected or the professional tapped out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the individual was still assisted. Based on these observations, he concluded that it did not matter in which order the meridian points were touched.

Craig created EFT as a streamlined, enhanced version of the ideas behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one basic, simple series of points to tap, whatever the circumstance.

Because of this, thousands of individuals have used Tapping for diseases and to resolve emotional issues. Touching practitioners have studied the techniques as well as trained to tackle much more challenging and difficult situations, and also these committed specialists report more effective applications day-to-day. An increasing number of people are uncovering as well as checking out Tapping. Lots of are uncovering exactly how Tapping could change their lives.
