How EFT can help free emotional & physical pain

Emotional Freedom Technique can help you in many different ways!


  • Do you struggle with your body image, your size and shape? Do you use food as a comfort or to punish yourself?
  • Can you hear the negative chatter in your mind?
  • Do you feel angry, anxious, or flat for what seems like no reason?
  • Could it be because buttons are being pushed and you are feeling triggered, but you can’t quite work out why or what?
  • Are you stuck because you fear change?

This is where Emotion Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Matrix Re-imprinting can help you. EFT is also know as tapping and is based on the ancient healing principals of acupuncture, shiatsu massage and reflexology amongst other modalities. EFT helps you to clear away negative energies by stimulating the energy meridian points. Matrix Re-imprinting then takes the tapping a step further and re-imprints a positive or more adaptive memory field.

With EFT you shift your unconscious beliefs and emotions, once you recognise them, you can reduce the power behind them. Research shows that when you deal with underlying emotional issues the body is brought back into balance.


Is there any science behind the claim that EFT can help free emotional and physical pain?

The simple answer is a resounding YES!

EFT has met the 7 essential criteria the American Psychology Association recommends for a therapy to be considered ‘empirically validated’.

Although incredibly simple, this technique of tapping has been shown to have significant positive effects on numerous body systems. It is now recognised that EFT profoundly affects us on a physiological and biological level regardless of whether we believe in it or not.  The argument is now about whether it is to do with moving energy which takes us into the realms of quantum physics.

In fact, EFT has been shown to lower cortisol levels more effectively than talking therapy because it helps to release and peel away layers of stress or trauma. 

For something so simple it is hard to believe just how powerful it can be.

The most frequently used statement my clients make after an EFT session is ‘I feel so much lighter!” and ‘I can’t believe what just happened!’.

Why isn’t EFT more widely used?

Why indeed?

EFT has been practiced since 1995. We know it takes our National Health Service some 18 years to take on board any new science. Something that is as simple and yet so incomprehensible as EFT is going to take longer. In addition to which think of all the money the pharmaceutical giants could lose! The last thing they want is to see EFT become something people naturally turn to resolve issues.
