About EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques /Tapping

How Does EFT Work?

The mechanisms behind EFT include the deactivation of the amygdala (stress centre in the brain) and hippocampus (memory centre). 

The basic tapping technique requires you to focus on negative emotions. This can be a fear, anger, a worry, or any unresolved problem. While maintaining your mental focus on this issue, you use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times on 14 specific meridian points of the face, body, hands and fingers

Tapping on meridian points sends a calming signal to the brain, letting your brain know it's safe to relax. So, for example, when you receive bad news from your boss or begin to worry about future events, it triggers a part of your brain called the amygdala. This part of the brain is responsible for starting the stress response in our bodies, releasing stress-related hormones into the bloodstream. Also popularly known as the fight-or-flight response, it is the body's natural reaction to a perceived threat. 

The problem is we tend to have our amygdala in charge way more often than we want. The amygdala's response is effective when faced with real-life danger but damaging when you want to feel calm and confident during a test or important meeting. And most of the time, when this is happening in your body, you aren't experiencing the fight-or-flight (or freeze) response for the same reason that our ancestors did long ago were. There is no tiger in the woods, but the reaction in your body is still the same.

Tapping on these meridian points (the same used in acupressure) while you think about what is causing you stress helps your mind understand that you are not in any physical danger. It is safe to relax, reducing cortisol levels. Tapping allows you to bring your life back into balance and reduce stress around your relationships, finances, weight, pain, fears, and so much more.
