EFT is only about 20 years old, but every year more astounding scientific research reveals why it is the perfect bridge between cutting edge Western medicine and practices from the East.
EFT stimulates the body’s meridian points, which significantly reduce activity in a part of your brain called the amygdala. When you experience trauma or fear, the amygdala is triggered and your body is flooded with cortisol, commonly known as the “stress hormone.” This stress response significantly influences, and sometimes causes, whatever it is that troubles you, such as fear, grief, anxiety, illness, etc. Tapping often removes the production of cortisol by the amygdala (stress response) when thinking about a stressful/traumatic event or emotion.
Sometimes my clients have kept traumas or negative emotions to themselves or even shared these with psychologists and/or psychiatrists and have never been able to be truly free. Can you imagine how amazed my clients are, and how great they feel, when they are able to relive traumatic or stressful experiences without any anxiety?
