Meridian Energy Therapies
Tapping for self help: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
Meridian Energy Therapies (METs) originated in 1981, when Roger Callahan, a US psychologist, developed Thought Field Therapy (TFT)- which had good results treating psychological problems by tapping on the body's acupressure points.
TFT uses sequences of tapping specific points, in a particular order, for a particular problem, eg. anxiety, phobias, physical pain, trauma, addictive urges, depression, anger, shame & embarrassment, obsessions/compulsions.
Meridian Energy Therapies use the Discovery Statement, "The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system". When experiencing the emotion, whilst using one of the METs, we can correct the energy flow.
Tapping on the body's acupressure points - the points at which the main meridian energy lines are close to the body's surface - affects the energy flowing through those meridians. Tapping on one meridian also impacts on the others, as they are all inter-connected.
