• A way to take control of your emotions, your body and yourself. (how awesome is that!?)
These extra points on the hand can also be used as an alternative or addition. If these points are difficult, for whatever reason, there are other options.
EFT tapping points
You can go into it as deep as you want.
Books have been written about it.
If you have any questions or want to read books about this or scientific articles, let me know. Then I can certainly indicate where you can find them.
But in short, it's all about:
As I demonstrated on the video above
EFT is tapping on acupuncture points on the body. This opens the flow of energy at each point and keeps them open. In addition, you give a stimulus to the brain, especially the hippocampus that there is no actual danger to your life. (In case of real danger to your life, you don't have time to tap on those points of your body).
effective in healing symptoms associated with panic, depression and PTSD (research.EFTuniverse.com). EFT is often referred to as tapping because it has a central function during EFT. It involves tapping with your fingertips on acupuncture points on your own body. These acupuncture points are referred to as accupoints. Research has shown that pressure on the battery points or "acupressure" has the same effectiveness as acupuncture with needles. (Cherkin et al. 2009).
"muscular armor" based on his observations that emotional trauma can result in rigidity in certain areas of the body. (Reich, 1927). In the 1970's, clinical psychologist Roger Callahan found that clients had rapid adaptation to psychological trauma when psychotherapy was combined with tapping on acupuncture points of the body (Callahan, 2000). In the 1990's, Callahan's method was simplified as EFT and published in a manual (Craig and Fowlie, 1995; Church, 2013). The more popular EFT became in therapy and coaching circles, the more it attracted the attention of researchers. They conducted studies on EFT and saw that it is extremely effective for mental problems such as fears/phobias, depression, panic and PTSD (Lane, 2009).

EFT FOR GROUPS
I also provide introductory information about EFT for groups. Can be companies and institutions, but also for individuals who have a group of people of at least 5 people who are interested in EFT. They last up to 1.5 hours. In it I tell about EFT. How it works, background information and we do a round of EFT to experience what EFT does. What is also important to know for schools and youth institutions is that I provide information about EFT in connection with the body. It is very important for the youth to understand how their bodies work. How their body works in combination with mind and psyche. Especially during this time when they are very busy processing stimuli around them. Filling in the time and the energy they put into it. This also affects their body. Many young people have no idea how their body works, let alone in combination with psyche and mind. That's where they often fail these days. Their emotions and what that does to their body and mind.
WHO IS EFT FOR?
EFT can be used from babies to adolescents and from adolescents to adults. It is a safe tool for everyone! We work with children from 6 years old to adults.
Problems with emotions/behavior basically all situations where emotions are involved.
There are too many to mention.
