Complementary therapy put simply is something which “works well in conjunction with” another therapy, sometimes conventional medicine and sometimes another complementary therapy. Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT is a complementary therapy. Many people suffer with an active dislike of a particular thing. For some, this dislike turns into a phobia and controlling the symptoms of it can start to pose difficulties for that sufferer. EFT may be able to help with the psychological issues phobias raise and if you would like further information we have practitioners available in Biorhythm Research, London and Hampshire.

The Emotional Freedom Technique is a modern therapy developed by Gary Craig in the 1990’s. It is a combination of the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, modern Applied Kinesiology, Neurophysiology and NLP. It is said to help with a wide range of psychological issues which is why it may prove useful to those phobia sufferers who need to find a treatment which will help them bring their symptoms under control. If you think EFT would be a worthwhile choice of complementary therapy for you we have practitioners available in Metamorphic Scotland, Classes Hampshire and Kundalini Chiang Mai.

The EFT theory states that negative emotions are built in the following stages: A negative experience occurs; negative emotions are felt in response to this negative experience, this disrupts the body's energy system and leads to inappropriate programming inside the body much as is the case with our response to situations which lead to phobias. The idea with EFT is that in order to remove these negative responses, tackling the negative experience is not enough and the energy imbalance must be restored along with tackling the negative emotions. Practitioners experienced in EFT technique can be contacted in Halifax, Trichology Kent and Ibs London.

The basic EFT technique involves holding a disturbing memory or emotion in mind and simultaneously using the fingers to tap on a series of specific points on the body that correspond to meridians used in Chinese medicine. There are no medicines or special equipment required and once learned these simple techniques can be used by anyone at any time they need and so if you suffer from a phobia this may be a useful technique to be able to call upon. Practitioners who are sympathetic to phobia sufferers and may help them to conquer their fears are based in London, Ethical Marketing North London and Cardiff City Centre.

EFT can also help people to feel re-energised after treatment and better equipped to cope with the physical and psychological responses that phobias bring about in the body. Different complementary therapy practitioners may advocate slightly different treatments dependant upon their assessment of your symptoms.
