EFT is a form of emotional acupressure, based on the Chinese meridian system used in acupuncture. It is a blend of acupuncture and Mind-Body Medicine. The focus is on treating both physical and emotional ailments by ‘tuning in’ to specific issues (e.g., traumatic events, addictions, pain, allergies, etc.) while gently tapping with fingertips on certain acupuncture points. This concept is based on the fact that the human body is electrical (or energy) in nature. When energy flows correctly, our bodies function properly. When blockages occur, we get ill. Tapping creates a resonant vibration along the energy meridian which, literally, shakes loose any energy blockages.
