Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Alastair is also a practitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or ‘Tapping’. EFT can be very effective as a stand alone therapy for anxiety, depression, a phobia or trauma.
EFT involves tapping on various points of the face and body combined with talk therapy. It is a similar energy healing approach to Reiki and Acupuncture without the needles. We tap with our fingers on various pressure points/meridian lines on the face and body but we also say the words of whatever pain or negative emotion we are tapping out in order to clear it from the body and mind simultaneously.
EFT Tapping helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we form around our thoughts, feelings, or bad memories. We ‘tap’ on the correct pressure points while bringing these thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back from being the best version of ourselves.
EFT fires up neuroplasticity. Shifting energy changes the way our brains process information about a particular issue so tapping while tuned in to the issue is like rewiring or re-routing the brain’s conditioned negative response. It changes both feelings and thinking.
It is a technique that can also be taught quickly and is an incredible self help tool to cope with any feelings of anxiety or emotional imbalances in our energy.
EFT is used for a wide range of issues including:
- Panic Attacks
- Physical Pain
- Sleep problems
