The Science Of EFT
We have 50 to 100 trillion
cells in our bodies!
EVERY CELL in our body has up to one million cell receptor sites. It is the job of these cell receptors to take in nutrients, proteins, vitamins, and minerals to nourish each cell and keep it in balance.
AN EVENT HAPPENS
That event can be thoughts we have; something that happens to us; something we witness happening to someone else; an injury; a trauma; etc.
The hypothalamus releases a cascade of chemicals that are called peptides
These peptides are short chain amino acids that we experience as an emotion or sensation; all 32 emotions are simply chemical combinations
These peptides dock onto cell receptor sites throughout the body
Now nutrients, proteins, vitamins and minerals can’t enter those receptor sites
If the chemical/emotion isn’t naturally processed out of receptor sites it remains there
Eventually these receptor sites shrink up and die and the cell divides
The body then makes more receptor sites for that same chemical/emotion and less for nutrients, proteins, vitamins, and minerals
We then spend our time trying to deal with the event and these unprocessed chemicals/emotions on a mental level rather than the physiological level that it happened on!
That’s also why it feels like your problem is getting worse. That’s not your imagination, that’s an accumulation of those chemicals in your cell receptors; it’s a biochemical response your body is having.
The things that happen to us happen on a physiological level. They literally bypass our conscious mind and happen biochemically and physiologically to us. But we end up spending our time trying to deal with them mentally. It’s like using a hammer to do the job when instead you really need to use a screwdriver.
What do the Emotional Freedom Techniques do?
Gary Craig, a Stanford graduate engineer, developed Emotional Freedom Techniques in 1994. It’s referred to as “EFT” or “tapping”.
EFT speaks directly to your body, bypassing the conscious mind, and completes the processing of those chemicals out of the cell receptors, returning your body to a state of balance.
This is accomplished through a series of taps on end acupuncture points on your face and hands, using your fingertips. There are no needles involved and it is a do-it-yourself technique. Once learned, you will literally have this tool at your fingertips for the rest of your life!
And unlike other techniques, since we’re speaking directly to your body and not your mind, you don’t have to believe it will work in order for it to work. You can remain completely skeptical and still get great results!
And believe me when I tell you that every one of my athletes is skeptical when they come to me! I love it… I welcome their skepticism, because the most skeptical ones become my biggest advocates in the end!
Tapping is not designed to replace anything you are currently doing to enhance your performance. Tapping is in addition to coaching, strength and conditioning, good nutrition, chiropractic, naturopathic, and medical care or any other modality that adds to your performance.
