We offer Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) in Southend at The Body Matters. EFT sessions are available from our clinic based in Leigh-on-Sea.
About Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Technique was derived from traditional Chinese and Japanese treatments, which have extensive documented histories. In the 1980s, Dr Roger Callahan, an American psychologist, developed a method of combining his treatments with tapping on meridians. Dr Callahan’s version of this therapy led to further development of the technique by Gary Craig, an engineer and performance coach. Gary Craig evolved and simplified the technique, which then gained popularity as Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT is now recognised and utilised throughout the world.
EFT employs a method of tapping with the fingers on meridian energy endpoints, the same points used in acupuncture and shiatsu. In EFT, the points used are primarily on the face and hand, however, EFT also incorporates points that may be tapped (over clothing) under the arm and on the chest. These points are tapped in conjunction with specific language, which is stated by the practitioner and repeated by the client. EFT is an extraordinarily effective method for easing a vast array of physical and emotional pain. It is a non-invasive method and is suitable for all ages.
How Can EFT Help You?
Emotional Freedom Technique may be used to improve or eliminate conditions such as:

EFT at The Body Matters
Sessions are scheduled for one hour and include a discussion of your primary issue or pain and an explanation of the Tapping process. You will be shown the points to be tapped on and you will discuss the options and benefits of mirroring the motions of the practitioner versus having the practitioner tap directly on your body. Throughout your session, you will be asked to repeat phrases and descriptive words that are chosen from your comments. You will also be asked throughout the session to rate the intensity of your pain or emotion and any necessary adjustments will be made to the language used.
