What is EFT ?

The ques­tion of “What is EFT Tapping?” is a common ques­tion that can elicit a brief or lengthy response. I will do my best to provide the essen­tial infor­ma­tion in response to this query.

EFT stands for the Emotional Freedom Tech­ni­ques. It has also come to be commonly referred to as “tapping” as the tech­ni­ques involve a gentle tapping or percus­sion of the finger­tips on the skin. 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 5,000 years, but without the inva­si­ve­ness of needles.
