Releasing Negative Emotions using EFT Tapping:

Emotional Field Therapy is based on the idea that negative emotions and physical pain are caused by disturbances in the body’s energy system. By tapping on specific acupressure points, EFT helps to balance the body’s energy system and release the emotional and physical blockages that are causing these negative emotions.

  • Fear and Anxiety

Fear and anxiety can be caused by a variety of factors, such as past traumas, negative beliefs, or stressful situations. EFT can be helpful in reducing fear and anxiety by addressing the underlying emotional issues and helping the individual to release the negative emotions associated with these experiences. For example, if someone has a fear of flying, they could tap on the acupressure points while focusing on their fear and negative beliefs about flying.

  • Anger

Anger is often a response to feeling threatened or frustrated. EFT can help individuals release their anger by addressing the underlying emotional causes and helping them to shift their perspective and release their negative emotions. For example, if someone is feeling angry about a difficult work situation, they could tap on the acupressure points while focusing on their anger and the emotions associated with the situation.

  • Depression

Depression is often caused by a buildup of negative emotions and a sense of hopelessness. EFT can be helpful in reducing depression by addressing the underlying emotional causes and helping the individual to release the negative emotions and shift their perspective. For example, if someone is feeling depressed about their financial situation, they could tap on the acupressure points while focusing on their negative emotions and beliefs related to their finances.

  • Phobias

Phobias are intense fears of specific objects or situations that are not necessarily dangerous. EFT can be helpful in reducing phobias by addressing the underlying emotional causes and helping the individual to release the negative emotions and shift their perspective. For example, if someone has a phobia of spiders, they could tap on the acupressure points while focusing on their fear and negative beliefs about spiders.

Note: It’s important to note that while EFT can be a helpful tool in reducing negative emotions and promoting physical and emotional healing, it should not be used as a substitute for professional medical or psychological treatment. If you are experiencing intense emotions or mental health issues, it’s important to seek the help of a qualified healthcare professional.

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Chronic pain
Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a form of energy psychology that involves tapping on specific acupressure points while focusing on a negative thought or issue in order to release the emotional blockages that are contributing to the physical symptoms.

TFT was developed by psychologist Roger Callahan in the 1980s, and originally developed in the United States.

Physical Healing through Releasing Negative Thoughts

For example, if someone is experiencing chronic pain, they could use Thought Field Therapy to address any negative thoughts or emotions that may be contributing to their pain. By tapping on the acupressure points while focusing on their pain and associated negative thoughts, they could potentially release the emotional blockages and promote physical and emotional healing.

  • Note:

It’s important to note that TFT should not be used as a substitute for professional medical treatment. If you are experiencing physical symptoms or pain, it’s important to seek the help of a qualified healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

Difference between Emotional Field Therapy (EFT) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
  • Both EFT and TFT are forms of energy psychology that involve tapping on specific acupressure points while focusing on a negative thought or issue. However, there are some key differences between the two:
  • Focus: EFT focuses on releasing negative emotions related to specific experiences or events, while TFT focuses on releasing negative thoughts and emotions related to specific issues or problems.
  • Techniques: EFT uses a standardized tapping sequence on specific acupressure points, while TFT uses a specific tapping sequence for each individual issue.
Suitable for all ages

EFT and TFT are suitable for people of all ages, including children and older adults. However, it’s important to note that children may need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian during therapy. Additionally, EFT and TFT should not be used as a substitute for professional medical or psychological treatment for individuals with severe mental health or medical conditions.

It’s also important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before using EFT or TFT for any physical or emotional issue. The therapist can help determine if these therapies are appropriate for your specific needs and guide you through the process.

“GAMUT” Technique in Emotional Field Therapy (EFT)

The “GAMUT” technique is a series of tapping points used in EFT to access different aspects of the brain and nervous system. It involves tapping on specific points while performing a series of mental and physical actions to help balance the energy system and resolve emotional and physical symptoms.

Heart Activation Breathing Technique

The Heart Activation Breathing technique is a technique used in EFT to promote relaxation, balance the energy system and access deeper levels of healing. The technique involves breathing deeply and slowly while tapping on the Emotional Field Therapy points, focusing on the sensation of the breath, and imagining the breath entering and leaving the heart center.

The connection between our thoughts and physical health is a complex and multidimensional one. The brain and the nervous system communicate with the rest of the body through complex networks of nerves and hormones, influencing the function of the organs and systems.

Negative thoughts and emotions can have an impact on the body’s physiological systems and contribute to physical symptoms.

For example, stress and anxiety can activate the body’s stress response, releasing hormones such as cortisol. Cortisol can affect various bodily functions, including the immune system, metabolism, and blood pressure.

  • The kidneys are one of the organs that can be affected by stress and negative thoughts. Chronic stress can increase the level of cortisol in the body, which can lead to changes in blood pressure and blood flow to the kidneys. Over time, this can contribute to kidney damage and other health problems.

It’s important to understand that while the relationship between thoughts and physical health is complex and multidimensional, negative thoughts and emotions do not cause physical symptoms directly. Rather, they can contribute to changes in the body’s physiological systems that can, in turn, lead to physical symptoms. The role of cortisol in these interactions is significant, but it is just one aspect of the relationship between thoughts and physical health.

  • Adrenaline and cortisol are two hormones produced by the body in response to stress and other stimuli. While both hormones play important roles in the body’s stress response, they have different functions and effects:
Adrenaline

Function: Adrenaline is a hormone released by the adrenal glands in response to stress or physical activity. It prepares the body for a “fight or flight” response, increasing heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration, and increasing blood flow to the muscles.

Effects: Adrenaline helps to increase alertness, physical performance, and the ability to respond to stressful situations. It is also involved in regulating glucose metabolism, dilating air passages, and increasing the secretion of digestive juices.

Cortisol

Function: Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland in response to stress. It helps to regulate the body’s stress response and maintain normal metabolism and immune function.

Effects: Cortisol helps to regulate the balance of glucose in the body, suppress the immune system, and regulate blood pressure. Cortisol also helps to regulate mood and energy levels, and plays a role in the body’s circadian rhythm, or internal biological clock.

In general, the role of an EFT and TFT practitioner is to provide a supportive and safe environment for the patient to address their emotional and psychological issues and achieve greater psychological and emotional freedom.
    • It is important for the practitioner to be trained and experienced in the use of Emotional Field Therapy and Thought Field Therapy techniques, and to have a good understanding of the underlying principles and processes involved in these therapies.
  • Emotional Field Therapy, has received more scientific attention, and there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that EFT can be effective in treating anxiety, depression, and other emotional issues.
  • It’s also important to seek the help of a qualified healthcare professional for any physical symptoms or health concerns, as the underlying cause may be more complex than negative thoughts and emotions alone.

In conclusion, Thought Field Therapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques are two therapeutic approaches used to treat psychological distress and emotional issues. While they share many similarities, there are important differences in their approach to treatment, teaching, and efficacy. Ultimately, the choice between TFT and EFT will depend on individual preferences and needs, and it is important to discuss these options with a qualified mental health professional to determine the best course of action.
