Q: What is EFT Tapping?
A bit about Energy Psychology: Clinical EFT (evidence based practice)
Studies at Harvard Medical School have revealed that by stimulating meridian points of the body, you can significantly reduce activity in the amygdala, which is your brain’s own personal alarm system. When we experience distress, trauma or fear this part of the brain gets triggered and releases the stress hormone, cortisol. Studies have shown that by stimulating the parts of the body we use in EFT tapping, the distress that gives rise to the problems you face can be drastically reduced (The Tapping Solution). Meridian tapping goes deeper into making changes in your life than traditional talk therapy – it is simple, gentle and incredibly effective. It is a tool you can learn for yourself to enable you to become in control of your own healing abilities. It’s a beneficial investment in your health & wellbeing journey: generally one to three sessions with a EFT therapist is enough to start living the life you truly deserve to have. The reason why we choose to tap with our clients at The Inner Shine Clinic is because talk therapy in combination with tapping puts the power back into the users’ hands. You are facilitating your own inner healing.
Q: Why does tapping works in conjunction with talk therapy for children and adults?
- It calms the nervous system
- It rewires the brain enables a change in mindset
- It restores the body’s energy
“Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, your body can often rebalance itself and accelerate healing”
Dr. Joseph Mercola M.D
Q: Is EFT evidence based?
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques has been researched in more than 10 countries worldwide and its effectiveness has been published in more than 20 different peer reviewed journals. Here in Australia, Bond University in Queensland is leading the world in current research for the effectiveness of EFT for obesity, food cravings and weight management. These clinical trials are being led by Clinical Psychologist Dr. Peta Stapleton who has been internationally recognised as an expert in the field of EFT.
EFT has been found to be an “evidence-based” practice for the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD and phobias. EFT can be considered best practice for a wide variety of physical, mental and emotional issues with its combination of recognised interventions such as Mindfulness, Exposure Therapy, Acupressure, Cognitive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Somatic Body Work as well as elements of EMDR and Inner Child work.
“Clinical EFT” (as offered by The Inner Shine Clinic in Sydney) has led to a growing acceptance of energy medicine as a safe and effective treatment with rapid results within primary healthcare, for both physiological and medical diagnoses. We seek to empower and liberate our clientele of families, communities and individuals; from the stressed out executive to the confused teenager searching for identity. We enable them to free themselves from limiting mindsets by teaching them to actually re-store, rewire and re-programme the brain for inner peace, success, health and happiness. That is why our results are so profound and long-lasting.
