Due to the fast lifestyle and stressed working conditions, most people experience anxiety in their lives. Anxiety is the most common form of mental disorder and it currently affects more than 7% of the world’s population. In Australia, about 26% of the adult population is affected by anxiety once in their lifetime while 14% are affected by anxiety disorders. The article discussed how anxiety can be treated using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping as it is known commonly.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also commonly known as tapping is an alternative treatment for resolving core issues that cause physical pain and emotional disorders. EFT involves tapping on pressure points throughout the body while talking through your issues or traumas. It has been proved that in one hour of tapping it can reduce stress levels by 24%. Imagine how your anxiety would be if you resolved the core issues?
Benefits of Treating Anxiety Using EFT
Some of the key benefits of using EFT for treating anxiety are as follows:
Can Be Done Anywhere
Tapping is very simple and can be done anywhere and anytime when a person is feeling stressed and anxious. It can be done at office, home, or even while traveling.
No Drugs and Medicines
EFT does not involve the use of drugs and medicines. You don’t have to visit the doctors regularly and take prescribed medicines every day. Since there are no medicines and drugs involved, there are no side-effects.
Tapping has been known to produce quick results. Deep-rooted and chronic problems can also be addressed in a few tapping sessions. Generally people need between 5-10 sessions to resolve their core issues and change the way they fell and think.
As tapping is an alternative treatment therapy, it does not involve the costs associated with frequent doctor visits and costly medication. This makes tapping highly cost-effective compared to the traditional treatment.
