What is EFT?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques.  It is also known as "Tapping" as seen on TV and it is also called "emotional acupuncture" but without the needles. 
EFT was developed by Gary Craig from the 'Thought Field Therapy' system of Dr Callahan.
EFT is a simple and effective approach in resolving the emotional blocks and barriers that hold us back from achieving the life we want.  This revolutionary energy technique is simple to use, easy to learn for self-help and powerfully effective
It is therefore very effective for many of the emotional and physical issues experienced in Pregnancy and Childbirth.
This therapy works by tapping on the end points of the body's main acupuncture meridians.  This is known as the 'Basic Recipe'.  Each of the points is tapped in turn, while at the same time the patient repeats a trigger word or phrase that evokes the negative emotion or target problem, in order to regulate the energy levels of the whole system.
Each round of the process takes a few minutes, and can be learnt quickly and easily so you can use it independently.  Between each round you will be asked to review how you feel about your problem.
You will be shown how to tap the end points of the major energy meridians in order to restore the sense of balance in the body.  The more you do it, the better you feel and it is possible to feel very good indeed!  Once you are confident about your tapping ability, there is really no end to the improvements in emotional well-being that can be achieved.
The procedure is designed to release negative emotions associated with memories and thoughts.  You will still be able to remember past events and memories but the emotional contents will be gone thereby relieving all distress and discomfort that was connected to the memories and events. 

Restoring the balance the energy system allows the body and mind to resume their natural healing abilities.
EFT is easy to apply and non-invasive.
The process is rapid and painless, it can be applied to any problem, emotional, mental and/or psychosomatic, from phobias to long-standing effects of trauma and PTSD, stress, anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks.  It has also been successfully used in the treatment of addictions, pain relief and headaches.
