EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture
to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about
your specific problem, whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. You then voice positive affirmations, while carrying out the EFT (tapping).
This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works
to clear the "short-circuit" the emotional block from your body's bioenergy system, thus restoring your mind and body's balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.
