"Now more than ever we need to take care of ourselves and each other. Our physical and
mental health is vital"
- Melissa Kovacevic, Clinical EFT Practitioner and Functional Nutrition Coach
EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques)
EFT is based on a combination of principles from ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. EFT is a powerful stress management tool that can assist and manage symptoms of anxiety and stress. I specifically work with clients around food cravings, emotional eating patterns or comfort eating and limiting self-beliefs.
How does EFT work?
You tap with your fingertips on specific meridian endpoints on your face and body, while focusing on a negative emotions or physical sensation. This helps to calm the nervous system, rewiring the brain to respond in healthier ways and in turn restoring the body’s energy system.
EFT has a calming effect on the amygdala (the stress center of the brain) and on cortisol which is the body’s primary stress hormone. EFT has been shown to reduce cortisol by at least 24% in only one hour.
As a Certified Clinical EFT Practitioner I can introduce and demonstrate the techniques to the group. There will be opportunity for the group to try EFT if they would like to participate in the group demonstration.
Participates will also receive a handout with the ‘Tapping’ meridian points and summary of how to do EFT themselves.
