Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) got its start from Dr. Callahan (1985) who developed a procedure of tapping on acupressure points for treating mental/emotional problems. Since EFT’s great beginnings it has been modified into a simplified version called Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

EFT is easy to apply and learn for anyone. It’s best described as psychological acupuncture. Using your fingers and tapping specific acupuncture points while simultaneously verbalizing the identified problem (target) followed by general affirmation statements collapses the emotional charge you feel from a past, or specific event. EFT works so well and rapidly because events, and chemical reactions are stored in our cellular, physical and emotional body/energy body.  EFT goes to work on discharging those past patterns resolving the event or target emotional charge, allowing you to process.

It is effective with symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, fears, low self-esteem, trauma, stress, emotional blocks, body pain or discomfort, or any obstacle or emotional issue. You can use EFT to re-write limiting beliefs, resentments, anger and frustration, sadness and loss …. Dr. Callahan was a leader in using EFT to help those in disaster situations process and debrief the trauma leading to swift and full recovery.

EFT is a simple yet extremely effective process to use anytime and anywhere. Dr. Cormier can do personal sessions with you to uncover the deep root causes affecting your health, that cause undo stress or limit performance.  More importantly, you can learn yourself a tool to help you with any situation life brings your way. There is a Tapping App available that you can purchase through the Apple Store or Google Play.
