EFT / Tapping for kids
EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques, or Tapping as it is also known, are simple, safe, gentle and powerfully effective techniques that children, adolescents, teenagers (and adults!) can use to help them to relax.
By tapping on certain acupressure points around the body, negative emotions or feelings can be calmed, helping kids to let go of worries or whatever it is that may be stressing, bothering or upsetting them.
Often I find that kids do not want to talk about their feelings or about events that happened in the past, because to them, too much talking can feel like a bandaid being ripped off. The wound is exposed and it can hurt. Often kids don't want to talk or even think about it because they just want 'it' (whatever it is) to go away.
The best thing about EFT or Tapping is that you don't have to share your story or talk about the concerning issue for it to be resolved. Tapping alone brings about peace, clarity and calm.
Tapping can help with such a wide range of emotional and physical issues:
- Anger ....and so much more!
