Transitionnelles #2 – L’EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

De plus en plus de personnes se tournent vers les approches alternatives de soins. Lisa et Stéphanie vous proposent de découvrir ces modalités dans leur toute nouvelle émission : Transitionnelles, pour le Cercle des Volontaires.

Dès les années 1990, Gary Craig – partant de la prémisse que : « La cause des émotions négatives est une perturbation du système énergétique du corps. » – commence à développer des modalités de soins psycho-énergétiques/corporelles sous le nom « Emotional Freedom Techniques » ou EFT.

La première qu’il développe (et de loin la plus connue) est « l’EFT Tapping ». Cette modalité fait partie des thérapies méridiennes, stimulant un nombre limité de points d’acupuncture en les tapotant. En alliant techniques énergétiques orientales et thérapie occidentale basée sur la parole, le Tapping expose les émotions négatives enfouies pour en être libéré.

Il est à noter que bien que Craig ait inventé l’EFT, il n’a pas inventé le Tapping. Ingénieur de formation et passionné par des modalités de soins psychologiques alternatifs, il a rencontré et étudié avec le psychologue Roger Callahan, fondateur de TFT. Le TFT, « Thought Field Therapy », est peut-être le premier Tapping au monde. Fasciné par l’efficacité de TFT mais déplorant un peu sa complexité, Craig (en bon ingénieur) a décidé de simplifier ce protocole afin de démocratiser sa pratique.

EFT, la star des Tappings est alors née. Depuis, sa forme n’a cessé d’évoluer et sa popularité d’accroître.

Pour ce deuxième numéro, nous avons demandé à Jean-Michel GURRET, fondateur de l’IFPEC (I’Institut français de psychologie énergétique clinique – et co-fondateur de Quantum Way (, de nous parler de l’EFT Tapping.

N’hésitez pas à partager, et surtout prenez bien soin de vous !

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - is a fairly new discovery and a fast-evolving therapy within the field of Power Psychology which is catching the attention of therapists, researchers, fortune-tellers as well as lay people.

Commonly referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing obstructions within the power system which are the resource of emotional strength and pain. These obstructions in our power system, in enhancement to challenging us mentally, commonly lead to limiting beliefs as well as practices and also a failure to live life harmoniously.

An EFT therapy involves using fingertips as opposed to needles to tap on the end factors of power meridians that are located just underneath the surface area of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive as well as services the ethos of making adjustment as basic and also as pain free as feasible.

EFT is a common sense method that attracts its power from Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years. Actually Albert Einstein additionally informed us back in the 1920's that every little thing (including our bodies) is composed of power. These ideas have been greatly disregarded by Western Recovery Practices and as they are introduced in our present times, human procedure is resuming itself to the neglected reality that whatever is Power and also the capacity that this supplies us.

In the brief time since it's inception by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has offered countless people with remedy for all type of issues and problems, typically in startlingly quick time and after lengthy as well as excruciating durations of searching for a treatment. The variety of effective treatments have actually ranged from trauma and also misuse, anxieties, self screwing up behaviour patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of anxiety and anxiety, addictions, physical illness, to name yet a couple of.

EFT is upstaging the wide spectrum of healing experts; from the scientists to the spiritualists and everyone in between. It goes to the heart of the rejoining of the old as well as new standards.

EFT brings back recognition and rely on the natural healing capabilities of our mind and body, giving ground-breaking possibilities to accomplishing physical and emotional wellness in a faster time frame.

Since the techniques are so easy, they could be utilized efficiently as a self-help device, which encourages people to proactively add to their very own healing as well as growth procedure. This assists in a much faster alleviation procedure, previously believed difficult by health care specialists who promoted extensive (& typically painful) hrs in psychotherapeutic or treatment, frequently with restricted outcomes. These techniques do not challenge the medical and psychotherapeutic occupations, however instead offer to add to a holistic healing procedure.

EFT functions to remove such disruptions as well as remove the resulting emotional feedback or strength to bring back emotional harmony and also deal relief from physical pain.

This is done by concentrating on the details issue whilst tapping with fingers on the end points of energy meridians. The mix of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering and also concentrating on root causes, facilitates a "straightening out" of the energy system thereby removing the "brief circuit" to the body's discovered response or unfavorable emotion.

It started in 1980, with a psycho therapist by the name of Roger Callahan, as well as a client with a severe fear of water. Mary's fear of water regulated her life and kept her from day-to-day tasks.

Callahan and also Mary had been dealing with this problem together for over a year. Mary functioned up the nerve to sit within sight of the pool at Dr. Callahan's residence. Even doing this created Mary extreme distress, and also though she located ways to handle the extreme anxiety and emotional discomfort, she did not conquer her fear. They reviewed her trouble, as well as how you can overcome it, however without success.

Her worry of being near the water created Mary belly discomforts - a typical "instinct." Dr. Callahan had lately been studying conventional Chinese medicines, and discovering meridians. Instantly he had a motivation. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, assuming it might heal her tummy discomforts.

Mary touched her cheekbone as directed, as well as this little action altered medical history! The feedback appeared remarkable, to both Mary as well as Dr. Callahan. Her stomach pains vanished. Even extra amazingly, her anxiety of water disappeared, too! She diminished to the pool and also started spraying herself with water, rejoicing in her newly found freedom from fear.

Based on this exploration, Dr. Callahan began a series of examinations to establish as well as refine this technique, which he termed Thought Area Therapy. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutoring in the 1990's, finding out the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig started to observe some issues with TFT, elements that he saw were unneeded complications.

TFT needed practitioners to tap on a specific sequence of meridians (called a formula) for each and every various problem. Diagnosing the trouble required a technique called muscular tissue testing, where the expert would certainly measure the loved one stamina of a muscle, while the person discovered different ideas or declarations.

Gary observed repeated situations in which the issue was inaccurately diagnosed or the practitioner touched out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the patient was still helped. Based upon these monitorings, he ended that it did not matter where order the meridian points were touched.

Craig created EFT as a simplified, boosted variation of the concepts behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one standard, basic series of points to touch, whatever the scenario.

As a result of this, countless people have actually used Touching for ailments and to solve emotional troubles. Tapping experts have researched the techniques and trained to take on a lot more difficult as well as difficult situations, as well as these devoted experts report even more effective applications daily. More and more individuals are discovering and also discovering Tapping. Several are uncovering just how Tapping could change their lives.
