Are you living in a modern “stress city”? Here’s a tip! Explore the Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is a self-help technique to clear distress of any type—physical, emotional or mental. Gentle tapping activates your body’s subtle energies as you speak positive phrases aloud. 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. — and voice positive affirmations. 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.
