Tapping or it’s original name EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) has evolved and keeps evolving, since more and more people use it and enjoy the benefits from it. Throughout my practice using this technique, I made some discoveries, combining it with focusing, another method developed by the Psychologist Eugene Gendling, the effects are enhanced.
When a negative emotional state is experienced, our brain goes on alert. It prepares our body to enter a fight-of-flight response. During this state adrenaline is pumped, muscles tense, blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar all rise to have enough energy to meet the challenge. If this state does not resolve or calms down for long periods of time, it ends up, producing ailments in the body.
Today most of our fight-or-flight responses are internally triggered, from negative memories and emotions or conditioned learning from childhood.
