Energy Psychology and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

Energy psychology is a mind-body approach to understanding and improving human functioning. Within the energy psychology framework, emotional and physical issues are reflected in bioenergetic patterns within and around the mind-body-energy system. EFT draws on a number of different theories and disciplines and incorporates the notion that stimulation of specific acupuncture points can improve emotional and psychological conditions. Traditional Chinese Medicine has addressed emotional issues through acupuncture (and its effect on qi energy) for thousands of years. EFT, however, does not involve the insertion of needles, but rather uses tapping of acupuncture points to remove blockages and support healthy change. The tapping procedures in EFT can also be used on a self-help basis. This 'homework' may be incorporated as part of the therapeutic process, along with other strategies included in the Emotional Freedom Technique.
