Sally draws intuitively from tools such as energy tapping therapy, somatic movement therapy, mindfulness techniques and yoga to bring a deeper connection and love to your whole Self (body, mind and spirit).
EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as The Tapping Method, uses a blend of modern psychology and ancient Chinese medicine. Specifically, from the Chinese medicine perspective we work with the meridian system which is like a massive network of pathways, channels or lines which carries ‘Qi’ (life force) energy to the whole body. These pathways help maintain balance, harmony and that feeling of good general health and wellbeing. Any imbalance can cause blocks in our meridians and therefore influence disease, sickness or other physical or mental problems.
Tapping can be used on such a vast spectrum of different emotional and physical challenges from stress, fear, worry, and anxiety to more severe problems like trauma (including childhood trauma) and phobias. You can use it to overcome anxiety, weight problems, chronic pain, sleep problems, stomach issues, chronic pain, lack of motivation, depression and negative emotional patterns and belief systems that don’t serve your highest good. The list is honestly endless.

EFT works similar to Acupuncture, a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) but instead of using needles in EFT we stimulate the major meridian points by applying pressure through ‘tapping’ or light massage with our fingertips. The basic recipe for tapping starts by interrupting the negative emotion by focusing on it and then we create a statement about the actual problem feeling. This could be anything like a worry, a fear or any unresolved problem. For example, a setup statement could be, ‘Even though, I have this fear and I am feeling a lot fear right now, I deeply and completely love and accept myself’.
This statement helps you to bring acceptance and acknowledgement to the problem instead of pushing it away. At the same time as saying this statement, you also use your fingertips to tap nine major meridian points on your body, each about seven times. This combination of talking and tapping, tells the amygdala part in the brain that you are not in any physical danger right now and that it’s okay to feel relaxed, calm and safe, all of which reduces cortisol levels. Which as we know when cortisol is soaring it basically shouts ‘FEAR’ at our nervous system which creates stress in our bodies, so it’s brilliant that EFT can greatly reduce this instantaneously. Amazing right?!
We have meridian points all over the body but below show the main points we use in EFT Tapping.
On the chest where you would pin a brooch or medal. Gently push with your fingertips to find an area that feels tender, rather than sore.
Side of hand, further down from little finger
Where the eyebrows begin, closest to the bridge of the nose
On the bone in the corner of your eye
On the bone just below your eye
Between your nose and upper lip
In the indentation crease between your chin and lower lip.
Beginning from where your collar bones meet in the centre, go down an inch and out an inch on either side.
On your side, where a bra would sit if you wear one.
Directly on the crown of your head
EFT can be used on so many things, I encourage you to go wild and try it on whatever and whenever something is holding you back or causing you any physical or mental dis-ease in your body.
It works quickly and effectively and creates lasting change to your general health and wellbeing.
