Emotional Acupuncture is an easy way to reference it but what EFT Tapping really is, is your connecting with these meridian points as you verbalize a concern or an issue in your life and you're making it neutral at its very core. You're neutralizing a pattern that's not good for you; maybe it's just general stress and anxiety or a traumatic event that occurred. It's all the range. - Amy Piper

Why learn tapping techniques?

"Clients that are coming to me have often already done talk therapy 95% of the time and they have learned a lot from it but they're still having panic attacks, trauma patterns keep repeating or they're still having trouble in their relationship. So, where EFT Tapping comes in, and it's a beautiful compliment to talk therapy if people want to do both, is we're getting after where it is held in the brain...
..We're really going after fight or flight and the limbic or the emotional brain. As you talk while you tap, you're really going after the non-verbal part of the brain. You may know why you're having these panic attacks, phobias, addictions or anxious thoughts but you can't stop it until you tap to go after the brain that doesn't recognize spoken language and neutralize it." - Amy Piper
"Often people come to me with weight issues that they want to heal and so I work with them to go back and figure out when did this all started and what was going on in their life at the same time. Just by asking five to six questions, I receive a wealth of information to help them begin including asking, 'What part of this is emotional weight?' Not just diet and exercise but the emotional component and subconscious thoughts as well such as, 'I need this weight to protect me,' because it insulates me from the pain I'm feeling." - Amy Piper
"EFT tapping actually doesn't take a long time to help people clear out their trauma so it doesn't have to be a painful process. Some times, for each specific area you want to work on it may only take 3-5 sessions. With each session, you're rapidly peeling back the layers of the anger, resentment, shame, and any other emotions you're feeling. You do have to go through it to heal but I think EFT really provides a safe way to feel and release." - Amy Piper
Amy Piper is an EFT practitioner and trainer in Los Angeles. She works with people both in person and virtually in 1:1 sessions. She also conducts EFT Level I and 2 workshops to train others in EFT, as a tool for themselves, or for professionals to add to an existing healing practice. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, more commonly known as 'tapping.' She began her journey with EFT as a client over 15 years ago.
Having direct experience with this transformational work, she felt called to train and become certified in these techniques. EFT is commonly referred to as “emotional acupuncture.’ It not only releases emotional distress but also goes beyond to reverse negative core beliefs. She loves it because it is powerful and works quickly.
Her formal education is as a speech-language pathologist; I completed my Master’s in speech sciences and embarked on this career nearly 20 years ago. She enjoyed working with people specializing in the area of brain injury/trauma within speech pathology, however, she often felt that something was missing.
She was working primarily with people who had experienced a traumatic event as part of a rehab team of professionals. When she encountered EFT (tapping), she realized this was the piece that had been missing. EFT has the power to heal traumatic experiences/memories that are held in the body and energy system. Releasing these traumas/painful experiences can have a profound effect on one’s health.
EFT brings Chinese Acupressure and modern psychology together. It combines gentle tapping on key acupuncture points while focusing your thoughts on physical pain, unhappy memories, uncomfortable emotions, traumas, fears/phobias, or any other problem. EFT works to “smooth out” the energetic disruption between thoughts/ memories and an emotional reaction. The emotional factors that contribute to the problem are typically released along with the energy blocks.
The tapping is working directly with the limbic brain, specifically the amygdala, where our stress response (flight/flight) is controlled. Tapping has a direct and immediate effect to down-regulate the amygdala. It’s a powerful tool to clear recent traumas or things that happened all the way back in our childhood/early years.
As we identify certain patterns in our lives or belief systems that no longer serve us, we can tap to clear these patterns. This allows us to live from a more neutral and joyful place.
