Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for Cancer Patients
Emotional Freedom Technique
The emotional Freedom Technique is a form of complementary intervention. Though relatively new, it has gained recognition from many clinicians and has been endorsed by prominent figures in the realm of alternative medicine, such as Deepak Chopra. EFT can be applied to many different ills and challenges, but for cancer patients, it offers a practical and effective way to engage in their own care before, during, and after their medical treatment.
What is EFT?
EFT is a form of “emotional acupuncture” or “mindful acupressure” that involves the stimulation of traditional Chinese acupuncture points. However, unlike acupuncture, instead of using needles, EFT uses a technique of gentle tapping on these points.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer, currently undergoing treatment, or even in remission and simply want to maintain your state of well-being, EFT may be the right choice of practice for you. Not only is it easy to learn and easy to practice, but it often packs significant results; you can now learn how to practice it online from the comfort of your own home.
How does it work?
In EFT, we use our fingertips to systematically tap on various acupressure points on the face, hands, and body while focusing on a problem or issue we wish to resolve. EFT also uses verbalization. It involves verbalizing the “issue” combined with a phrase of affirmation. Together the verbalization and tapping seem to release the intensity or charge of the “issue” we tap on.
The Mind Body connection
It is no secret that our body, mind, and emotions are intimately connected. Beyond the physical symptoms of the illness, being diagnosed or undergoing treatment raises a host of emotions and thoughts, like fear and anxiety for example, which oftentimes affect the way we feel in our bodies. When we apply EFT to something that upsets us – our thoughts, our feelings, and our bodily responses seem to shift. In other words, EFT allows us to release and transform the way feelings like guilt, fear, or anger may be affecting our bodies and our health.
EFT lets us take part and ownership of our healing journey. It will help us cope with and overcome fear, anxiety, guilt, blame, and shame. It will help us ease physical discomfort and lessen the impact of treatment side effects. It empowers us to maintain a positive mindset.
Practicing EFT for Cancer online
EFT for Cancer sessions are conducted via a simple webcam (video camera for computers). We interact face-to-face as if you were right here in my office. In this series of three sessions, you will learn the ABCs of the Emotional Freedom Technique for Cancer and its application. EFT for Cancer is different from EFT for behavior modification or addictions. While the core principles are still valid, illnesses such as cancer require a deeper understanding of what you are going through and what you need to heal.
