Acupressure OCD(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head, face and chest while you think about your specific problem - whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. - and voice positive affirmations. This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the "short-circuit" the emotional block from your body's bioenergy system, thus restoring your mind and body's balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.

When you read this page, most of you will be skeptical. That is normal, because this healing method is contrary to most people's belief systems. If someone told you 20 years ago that you can order any product or service without a phone, without leaving your house, that you can talk with people from all over the world, without a phone, without leaving your house, you would have been skeptical too, correct?

However, since the advent of the Internet, your skepticism of the above quickly vanished. So it can with EFT. It will make a difference in your life! Just give it a chance. The earth was round before people figured out it was round. Same with EFT. EFT has always been possible and has been known of being used for the last 5000 years. Whether you believe in it or not: it will work, provided you do it right, of course.

That means, you need to spend some time learning how to do it. Since I compiled the most important aspects of EFT on this page, it may take you less time, but even if not, isn't it worth spending a few hours of your life learning a healing technique for almost anything? A healing technique that costs nothing, has no side effects and is pain free? Imagine how many hours you spend at doctors, psychiatrists, reading drug instructions, etc. Way more that a few hours, and the results are usually not permanent and the treatments are painful and often include side effects. With EFT treatment is permanent and pain free, plus there are NO side effects!

EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture, except we don't use needles. Instead, we stimulate the meridians by tapping on them with our fingertips. EFT is an obvious extension of Einstein's discovery in the 1920's that all matter, including the human body, is composed of energy. We're not sure why this works so well. Perhaps you can help with the explanation after you experience it.

EFT often provides surprising results for OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). The benefits are two fold: First, just performing the mechanical application of EFT usually collapses the immediate need to perform the behavior. This is a big help, but is usually temporary. However, in a few cases this simple procedure also collapses the entire compulsive behavior. Second, EFT's long term successes are due to its ability to address the true cause of most compulsions ... namely ... the need to "tranquilize" anxiety caused by unresolved emotional issues. Until one's underlying anger, fear, guilt, trauma, etc. are dissipated, the compulsive behavior will remain. EFT is ideally designed to collapse these issues (that is what it does best) and, properly applied, the need to tranquilize disappears. And with it goes the compulsion. It should be evident that compulsions, addictions, eating disorders and weight issues have similar emotional causes.

EFT blends perfectly with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy because it helps bring up the issues faster and creates more (and deeper) Cognitive Shifts behind the scenes. EFT works like hypnotherapy but adds extra power to the process because it integrates the body's subtle energies. EFT works like talk therapy with the advantage that it allows us to get to the issues faster and resolve them more thoroughly. Finally, EFT works better than SSRI's or other drugs, because it addresses the root cause of OCD and anxiety disorders.

Please note: EFT for OCD is not a quick fix. The techniques need to be applied several times over a period of time, depending on the severity. Also, if you are not familiar enough with EFT and you have severe OCD, you should consider getting help form a EFT professional
