Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a revolutionary treatment method that offers healing from physical and emotional pain. Without the use of needles, this form of acupuncture uses the fingertips to stimulate energy points on the body. EFT works by tapping on acupressure meridians to release blockages. When these blockages are released, the problem feeling can be released and move through the body.
EFT is a very effective way of clearing out unwanted feelings and increasing positive beliefs about oneself. Learning EFT also empowers the child/young person to take charge of handling their emotional state because they can tap on a feeling any time they want to move out a painful feeling.
EFT is a helpful technique to assist children who:
- Are anxious
- Are experiencing bullying and the trauma that accompanies that
- Have a build of negative emotions
- Are struggling with emotion regulation
- Need a technique to feel calm when they are upset, releasing stuck emotions or trauma.
