The surprising natural healing aid you can use for almost everything. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is an emotional, needle free version of acupuncture that is based on new discoveries regarding the connection between your body's subtle energies, your emotions, and your health. EFT has been reported successful in thousands of cases covering a huge range of emotional, health and performance issues. It often works where nothing else will.
I too was skeptical of this procedure until learning how to do it and seeing for myself just how powerful and effective it is. This procedure works wonders where you have a mental reaction to a situation or a belief. It does not repair physical damage or injuries but it could in fact shift the inner reaction to that physical aliment and allow you to relax regarding it.
Where is procedure really shines is in collapsing a learned or conditioned reaction to an event, a phobia or to a long time emotional belief. If I look at this procedure and wish to analyze "how it works", I would have to step into the realm of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) or NAC (Neuro-Associative Conditioning) and realize that it is essentially collapsing a neuro association to a triggered event. With the stimulation of key meridian points on the body, your conditioned reaction to a trigger becomes confused and it simply does not run the same series of emotional reactions. A neuro associated reaction is learned and anchored within your physiology when you have tried to deal with a situation and inadvertently linked that situation with a predictable reaction.
For example, when a phobia (spiders, snakes, heights, water, public speaking etc.) is faced or encountered, you immediately react and activate the same fearful response. Often, this reaction is an undesirable emotional outburst or state of fear and the person is literally crippled by the grips of this emotion. EFT essentially scrambles your conditioned reaction and you are relaxed to address the situation the same way anyone else would who wasn't conditioned to react. The result is incredible and the sense of freedom is exhilarating.
