What is EFT?
Residual past trauma can lead to blocks in the body and the psyche which prevent us from living the full and healthy lives we all instinctively know how to enjoy. Subconscious connections to past events can leave us with triggers that are often stimulated leading to stress, anxiety, irrational behavior or unmanageable emotions. As they are beyond our conscious level of awareness, it can be hard to access and to heal these leftover traumas. EFT is a tool you can use to do just that.
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. The system involves:
a set sequence of tapping on the body using your own fingers;
repeating some phrases that will help your system learn new patterns.
It is fast and effective as well as being gentle and non-invasive. It can remove recent blocks or ones that are 50 years old without you having to recount or relive the original trauma. You do not even need to be consciously aware of what caused them in the first place.
EFT works on the meridian energy system of the body. Our body is like a big circuit and messages are carried all around this system. We can manipulate it and create changes using taps on the body. Negative emotions and traumas are like a misfire in the system. By creating the effect of the difficult emotion using words and thoughts, and subsequently tapping out the blockages, we can interrupt the old pattern and reset the system.
It will take about 10-15 minutes before your follow-up colonic treatment and will involve lying on the couch, tapping and repeating some appropriate phrases that Katherine will prepare specifically for you.
The Science Bit
Most of our behavior is guided by unconscious systems. Our amygdala is a part of the brain that scans for danger and keeps us safe. The amygdala cannot tell the difference between a real and imagined threat. It can continue to respond to past traumas as if they were still happening leading to a permanently stressful subconscious state.
Stress causes an increase in heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, cholesterol, cortisol and insulin. It also blocks serotonin which can cause poor temper and depression.
Recent research on EFT has shown some thought provoking conclusions. Studies at Harvard Medical School show that EFT decreases blood flow to the amygdala. This releases endorphins, the body’s natural feel good hormone. It also increases GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) which which calms the nerves. This supports coherent thought and balanced brain activity.
EFT disconnects the connection between the amygdala and stimulating events. The memory is still there, but the body does not respond as if the trauma is till happening.
EFT and the Gut
Your gut functions best in state of relaxation. That’s a fact. This diagram shows how much impact stress (fight or flight/sympathetic nervous system) has on your digestion:

An EFT session at the beginning of your follow-up colonic treatment helps put your body into a restful state. This will improve the comfort and efficiency of your colonic, enabling your body to fully release.
It will help with any anxiety you might feel about the treatment itself and supports the release of old patterns, beliefs and emotional triggers which could be holding you back from living a life of comfort and confidence.
It is highly recommended for those suffering from anxiety, IBS, constipation and depression.
