What is EFT or TAPPING? A tool for your Aging Life Care Management box

November 10, 2015 — What is EFT or TAPPING? Author: Bobbi Kolonay - President of Holistic Aging in Pittsburgh PA EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique (sometimes called tapping). The basic premise is that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system, which is the centerpiece of eastern medicine.  When the energy in our body is flowing normally, we feel great; when it becomes stagnant or obstructed, this causes disruptions along the energy meridians leading to negative or damaging emotions which can develop into physical symptoms.  Correcting these imbalances is done by tapping with your fingers on meridian points, while at the same time being tuned into the issue to be resolved. When done properly, the underlying emotional factors that contribute to the problem are typically released along with the energy blocks.
