EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)
What is EFT Tapping?
EFT tapping is a gentle practice that helps facilitate the process of releasing deeply held emotional patterns that may contribute to pain, discomfort, anxiety, and limiting beliefs that hold us back from reaching our full potential. It involves focusing on an issue(s) and tapping through a series of points based on meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
This practice can be utilized to help with: chronic pain, anxiety, negative thought patterns, phobias, relationship challenges, personal blocks, and more!
I often tell people that at some point during my Feldenkrais® training I realized that the process of changing movement patterns was fundamentally tied to changing behavioral patterns. As Moshe Feldenkrais understood, they are one and the same.
Our movement habits are our habits of mind. Our habits of mind are reflected in our bodies and our movements. When we hold on to old patterns, we often activate these patterns in current situations, even when they don’t apply to the current environment. Until we process and release these old emotions from our bodies, it can be very difficult to change. Dr. Feldenkrais described this as the difference between acting out of compulsion versus acting with spontaneity. Our habits and patterns developed out of intelligent responses in the original environment or situation. They served us well. When we feel they are no longer serving us well and they are getting in the way of our feeling capable, loved, free to be ourselves, then we are ready to find new options.
If you are looking for support to find new possibilities in yourself, you have come to the right place. Change is possible. We are human and we have brains that can continue to learn throughout our lifetimes, allowing us a great capacity for change. And we must be gentle in this process. Safety is necessary for learning and for healing.
I offer EFT sessions as well as integrate EFT into my Feldenkrais® practice because I believe both of these practices utilize the profound intelligence of our nervous system and our ability to heal, and I believe in great potential for deep and lasting change in utilizing these two modalities together.
I look forward to supporting you in your process of change.
