I LOVE that Emotional Freedom Techniques is being recognized for being deeply healing. I’ve had my own journey with it and it’s completely transformed my life.
I have gotten amazing results with my clients in just a few sessions. In one instance, a woman with a phobia of 40 years, that made life nearly impossible, resolved in just three sessions.
A trained professional EFT Practitioner knows that huge transformations are a process that takes time, and consistent work. On the one hand, it is a self help tool that regulates the nervous system in a matter of minutes. On the other hand it is a powerful technique that can access buried experiences that only an experienced, trained practitioner is equipped to handle.
There are 3 levels of EFT and it’s important that people understand this:
Bronze level is tapping on the meridian points without using words. This is great as an emergency intervention when the emotional intensity is high. It’s also calming to the nervous system and lowers the stress response.
Silver level. Tapping while repeating sentences from a written script. Scripts are easy to follow and available in books and on the internet. They are only effective at the general level and result aren’t usually lasting.
Gold standard is professional. Gold level tapping is specific to the beliefs, emotions, and energy disturbances of the client. This is powerful and healing, but a professional EFT practitioner must lead it.
