Using EFT to Help Animals
EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is a simple yet effective way to help release emotional stress in people and animals. Our final workshop of 2015 is entitled ‘An Introduction to EFT for Animals and Owners’ and will take place on Saturday 28 November at the Sanctuary from 11am to 3pm.
EFT (sometimes referred to as Tapping) was founded by an American engineer called Gary Craig who wanted to explore the link between emotional and physical health. It is a self-help tool that can be done at home, in the workplace, with children or with animals. It is based on the idea of the Chinese meridian system which believes that the human or animal body is made up of energy. This system is also used in other complementary therapies such as reflexology and acupuncture. In EFT we use meridian points around the head and chest areas and tap on these whilst using verbal language to acknowledge what the problem is.
During an EFT session we identify with a particular emotional issue we want to deal with and by ‘tapping’ on these energy points it helps to release any energy blockages which relate to those emotions.
Animals experience a wide range of emotions which they often do not get a chance to release. These can range from trauma, fear over change such as a new pet in the household, through to fear of fireworks, or even grief. We can help them by acting as a surrogate and tapping on ourselves to help release those emotions. It can even be from a distance using a photograph. Its a quick but effective way of helping the animals we love.
On the workshop you will learn the history of EFT, what the basics are, as well as getting a chance to work on any emotions you want to release along with any emotional issues your pets may have. No experience is necessary!
