If you have been experiencing feelings of stress and anxiety you are in need of a way to let it go. If these emotions are interfering with your life it might be a good time to consider using the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). An EFT practitioner in NJ can teach you how to deal with your emotions using a rating system in hand with “tapping” to ease your mind and balance your emotions.
What is tapping?
Tapping is used with EFT to come in contact with your meridians. Meridians are energy fields that run throughout your body. In order to help keep a balanced mind and body your meridians must be in tune and flow freely. In traditional Chinese medicine many healing techniques are designed to clear blockages that might be causing issue with the flow of your meridians. Tapping allows you to literally tap on different meridians in order to concentrate on removing stress and anxiety from your body, with a focus on the physical attributes commonly experienced when under severe stress. Stomach issues, chest pain, a feeling of heaviness on your chest or shoulders and a feeling of shakiness from nerves are just a few of the unpleasant side effects you can experience due to stress or during an anxiety attack.
Rating your Anxiety
When you are experiencing stress or anxiety an important aspect of EFT is to identify the severity of your stress. You can focus on your physical symptoms and use them to rate the stress and anxiety you are feeling. Using a scale of one to 10 with one being complete calm and 10 being unbearable anxiety you can rate your feelings before you begin your tapping session. As you complete each tapping process you can rate your feelings again. You continue tapping until you can get your anxiety down to a manageable level, preferably freeing yourself from anxiety completely.
Where to Tap
Tapping hits the main points on your body that will help you release anxiety and stress. Sometimes you can use tapping for just a few minutes and feel relief immediately and other times it will take longer. Working with an EFT practitioner NJ uses will help you perfect the technique so you can use it to maintain control over your emotions.
