Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Emotional Freedom Technique, often simply called 'tapping', is a self-administered psychological tool used for quickly and easily transforming negative thought, behaviour or feeling patterns. It involves firstly scoring how stressful a particular thought, memory or situation is, then tapping on the face, hands and upper body in a particular sequence whilst speaking a series of verbal affirmations such as "I am allowing my body to feel calm" or "I love and accept myself completely". The sequence is repeated until the score is significantly reduced or the stress eliminated altogether.
