Research has proven that emotional trauma contributes to a variety of diseases and physical symptoms … from addiction to phobias, from back pain to high blood pressure, from diabetes to weight gain.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) – or tapping, as many people call it – is one of the quickest and simplest ways to heal emotional trauma.
This healing can encompass body, mind, emotions, and/or spirituality. When one part of our experience is healed, other burdens often dissolve as well. Just as eliminating chronic back pain can lift depression, tapping away a childhood trauma can lift anxiety.
EFT is a powerful self-help method that merges elements of cognitive and exposure therapies with acupressure in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points.
The process starts by putting yourself in a negative emotional state – for example, by recalling a traumatic event from your past or by thinking about a current situation that upsets you. This triggers your body’s stress response.
Next, you use your fingertips to tap on 12 specific acupuncture points. Tapping creates an electric charge that travels through the body’s connective tissues along the path of least resistance. When a traumatic memory is recalled, tapping sends a message of safety to the body that neutralizes the emotionally arousing memory.
Tapping soothes the body’s stress response. It creates new neural pathways that promote calmness in the face of negative emotions.
EFT rapidly reduces the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is gone, the body knows how to rebalance itself and accelerate healing.
More than 100 scientific papers about EFT have appeared in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals. These include dozens of randomized controlled trials, outcome studies, and review articles by investigators from Harvard Medical School, Purdue University, Stanford University, the University of Arizona, and many other top institutions.
Studies have been published in top medical and psychology journals such as the American Psychological Association journals Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training, Review of General Psychology, Traumatology, and Archives of Scientific Psychology. They have demonstrated that tapping is effective for:
If you treat patients or serve clients who struggle with these issues – or if you face these challenges yourself – learning EFT tapping through EFT Universe is a savvy move that can change the entire course of your life.
Learning EFT tapping offers numerous benefits:
Help more people heal – more quickly. EFT offers a scientifically validated tool for healing that often works in as little as one session – compared with weeks, months and even years for traditional therapies.
Enjoy greater personal success. Apply the EFT techniques you’ll learn during EFT Universe training to heal your own negative emotional experiences.
Stand out among your peers. We train about 1,000 professionals a year – and certify many of them. By learning EFT, you’ll distinguish yourself in your community and field.
Enjoy greater word-of-mouth marketing. When patients and clients experience “miraculous” healing from EFT, they rave to their friends and family.
Increase your income. Because EFT is an in-demand healing modality that is not offered by many practitioners, you can charge appropriately for your expertise. In addition, because you’re able to help patients and clients achieve results more quickly, you can work with a greater number of people.
