EFT for Sports Performance. In this video, EFT coach, Carey Mann demonstrates EFT tapping on Olympic athlete, Abi Oyepitan, for shoulder pain during the 2012 Olympics.
Carey utilizes emotional freedom techniques techniques to help people suffering from chronic pain. EFT tapping is known for releasing endorphins and increasing GABA which are known to naturally relieve pain. Tapping re-writes the circuitry of the brain, letting it know that there is no eminent danger which helps lesson chronic pain and help athletes to recover more quickly form injury.
What is EFT Tapping?
EFT means “Emotional Freedom Techniques” and is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.
Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.
EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including dozens of clinical trials, have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.
