Emotional Freedom Technique EFT

EFT is a meridian energy 'Touch and Talk' therapy.  Created in the early 1990s by Gary Craig, an American engineer, it is like acupuncture without the needles.  Historically, it can be traced back to Acupuncture, Acupressure and Shiatsu, Kinesiology, Neuro-Linguistic programming and Thought-Field Therapy.

Based on the premise that 'the cause of all negative emotion is a disruption of the body's energy system' (Gary Craig), It isbelieved that EFT allows us effectively, quickly and painlessly to help balance strong emotions, by tapping on acupuncture points on the face and upper body which we instinctively touch when we are upset anyway ('EFT tapping').  We use words to link into the problem and tapping to eliminate it.  As we go through the process, words emerge from our subconscious which specifically relate to the fears, anxieties, negativity, phobias, traumatic memory and addictive behaviour we suffer from.  It is believed that as we tap, these feelings may be released, allowing us to feel free of the 'anchors' weighing us down.  A gentle and simple technique which 'often works when nothing else will' (Gary Craig).


Reiki translates into 'Universal Life Giving Energy'.  Created by Dr Mikao Usui in the 1920s in Japan, it is understood to be a safe, natural and holistic way of helping to reduce stress, promoting good health and coping strategies.  Reiki does not claim to cure any condition.

What does it do?

You will be asked to complete a confidential questionnaire about your health and wellbeing, and then invited to recline on a couch whilst the therapist places their hands on specific parts of your head and body, whilst you deeply relax.  Only footwear is removed.  Reiki may help to support or enhance mainstream medicine or other therapies and where stress is relieved, this may assist the body's own natural healing processes, as it is believed that a body out of balance has the potential for illness or disease.  Everyone is unique, and Reiki may be experienced as deeply relaxing or energising.
