Emotional Freedom Technique

DOES EFT WORK IN KIDS?


 

The short answer is ABSOLUTELY YES!


 

As adults, we know that many of the issues we experience, stem from our childhoods. Just imagine if we could help our children overcome these issues as they happen, instead of waiting until they grow up. The lifetime benefits to our child would be amazing!


 

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique and is an alternative therapy- sometimes referred to as tapping.


 

It is a technique that combines elements of acupuncture, exposure and cognitive therapy, somatic stimulation. It’s been researched in 10 countries, with the results published in over 20 different

peer-reviewed journals.


 

EFT is such a brilliant tool, because it gives our child a way to express themselves in situations where they would typically have ‘tantrums’ or ‘emotional meltdowns.’ When children feel the negative emotions build up, EFT provides children with a strategy, they can learn to self-manage, to relieve those feelings quickly and develop more positive ones. EFT is considered safe and non-invasive, which makes it the perfect choice for children.


 

Whether you are a parent, a teacher, or a therapist, tapping has so many wonderful benefits to help children manage their emotions and empower them to take care of their emotional health and

well-being.
