How EFT Can Help Anxiety?


One of the great things about Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/tapping) is its usefulness in relieving the minor anxiety and “blues” which most of us feel now and again in our lives. 

Day-to-day “normal” anxiety, like being anxious about an upcoming test or dealing with the stress of a project at work, is typically quickly relieved with a few rounds of tapping.  Sometimes, the anxiety is about something bigger, like buying a house, an impending wedding or the birth of a child.  EFT can be a huge help here, as well; tapping about the fears that come up around these situations often makes the experience easier and less complicated.


EFT is also an amazing tool when used to treat anxiety and depression disorders, such as OCD or PTSD.  These conditions typically result from trauma, and need to be handled somewhat differently.  For someone with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, for example, the anxiety has a deeper purpose and trying to “tap it away” in a few rounds usually gives poor results.  In these instances, investigation into the root cause is critical to healing the symptomatic anxiety or depression.

Unlike most other therapies, the client is taught how to use Emotional Freedom Techniques.  Besides giving the client an effective tool to work on the anxiety themselves outside of therapy sessions, which can greatly speed up recovery, it’s also very empowering, which is an important factor in healing.
