Emotional Freedom Technique

Learning to feel is essential in the massage profession.  We need to be able to feel to work on clients.  We need to be able to witness the process of feeling that touch creates in our clients. Our feelings are what teach us about what we are needing.  Our feelings are often a result of dysfunctional or false beliefs that we acquire in our families. We believe that we are not good enough or not enough or are unlovable.  These beliefs create intense feelings that become our story.  When we are in our story, we are being driven by the false beliefs.  Getting free of these beliefs starts with getting in touch with our feelings.

These stories become evident in relationships and in your business - basically whatever is happening in your life right now is a result of your beliefs.   If your practice is slow, what is it that is holding you back?  What is it that you believe about making money and working with clients?  

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a unique system of tapping on specific acupuncture points while working on an emotional, physical or spiritual issue.  It was developed by Gary Craig. The basic premise is learning to feel what is happening in your body.  Just by figuring that out and allowing ourselves to have that feeling is what seems to be the common theme.  

I have been playing with the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for about 2 years now.  At first it seemed like the strangest thing around...tapping on points on you head, truck and hand to release emotions?   I would try it and then forget it for awhile and then come back to it.   

I started with downloading the free manual at

http://www.emofree.com

The technique is pretty straight forward.  One of the keys is figuring out the core issue to "tap" for and Gary had many articles and resources for doing just that. His newsletter and website are filled with very informative articles and case studies.  He also has additional CD's and other material to help you learn how to use this.

There are many issues that EFT can be used for: 

  • Fears and phobias
  • Emotional stress
  • Physical Pain
  • Health conditions
  • Creating a Successful and Rewarding Business
  • Creating a Successful and Rewarding Relationship (s)
  • Use on yourself and use with clients

I highly recommend this technique.  You can use it on yourself first to learn how to use it and see the results first.  You can also start using it on your clients.  It is a great way to empower clients to participate in their own healing process.

What I like most about this program is that this guy is really not out to make money.  You can purchase the CD's and other tools and he actually encourages you to share them with others.  His website is also full of other great information on how to build a practice using EFT (which also applies to building a massage practice.)  There are many great free articles on how to build a practice.  Be sure to see the sections for practitioners.

The Emotional Freedom Technique can be a great addition to your practice.  You can use it with clients or teach them to do it themselves.  It is a really great tool for empowering your clients to take responsibility for discovering feelings which usually are the cause of many physical problems.  

I recommend using it to help you build your practice.  Most of what keeps you stuck is really your limiting beliefs.  EFT can be used to help change your beliefs.
