Episode Info:

The Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a psychological acupressure technique Karen and I regularly use and highly recommend to optimize our emotional and physical health. Although it's still often overlooked, emotional health is absolutely essential to your physical health and wellbeing, and no matter how devoted you are to the proper diet and lifestyle, you will not achieve your body's ideal healing and preventative powers if emotional barriers stand in the way.Recent research agrees that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease, and clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.

Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, which in turn can then accelerate healing.

EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and other problems. I personally have used it frequently on myself and taught it to my clients as a panacea for anxiety and depression. But it can also help with physical ailments, pain in the body, help to eliminate negative thoughts and feelings as well as supporting positive outcomes!Plus it's relatively quick, can be done without consulting a professional (although of course one can go deeper and unravel more complex and obscure beliefs and blockages by enlisting the help of a trained counselor such as my guest today ~ Marg Lambert). Tune in as Marg gives us background into how and why EFT is so effective, while giving us a direct experience we can all sense in less than 5 minutes.
