There is an energetic aspect to our thoughts and emotions – scientists can measure the energy fields that we create when we think and feel. EFT is thought to achieve remarkable results by acting on this energetic level.
Healing through bio-energy originated in China and India over 5,000 years ago. The core premise is that there is an animating life force contained within and around every living being.
According to the Chinese principals of acupuncture, energy flows through people along specific pathways, or meridians. In acupuncture, needles are strategically and precisely placed in the meridian system to correct problems with the flow of energy and thereby bring about healing. The U.S. National Institutes of Health has confirmed acupuncture’s validity.
EFT likewise uses the meridian system; although in place of needles, the client uses his or her own fingers to tap on specific points along the energy flows while concentrating on the particular problem to be solved.
Through this process, the intensity of the problem diminishes to the point that it is imperceptible. Generally, such positive outcomes are long-lasting.
Clients are often startled that such an odd intervention can have such powerful effects. I’ve heard more than once: “It’s gone. I can no longer feel any fear/sadness/anger/resistance, etc. when I think of the problem. That’s amazing! How does this work?!”
