EFT is one modality from energy psychology which utilizes the meridian points in the body to quickly release blocks, limiting beliefs, triggers, trauma, fears and physical pain. EFT is similar to acupuncture in that it works on the meridians. During a session you will tap gently on your accupressure point while thinking about the situation you want to release. This technique helps the amygdala to calm down. The amygdala is the part of the brain that modulates the flight or fight response.
