What is EFT? Why does it work?
EFT is based on the principles of acupuncture, which is ancient Chinese medicine that uses needles to unblock energy to restore the body to health.
With EFT, instead of using needles, you stimulate certain energy/meridian points on your body, by tapping on them with your fingertips, while you tune into your particular problem. By restoring the balance of your energy system, you are reducing and dissolving negative emotions and the stress which causes your sleep problems.
In a study published in the Journal of Mental and Nervous Disease (2012), conducted by with David Feinstein, PhD, and Dawson Church, PhD, found that EFT produces a 24% decrease in cortisol levels. Cortisol, most commonly known as the “stress hormone,” is one of the key elements of the body’s “fight or flight” response to stress. And decrease in cortisol is crucial for sleep.
Stern shares her 4 Step Formula for blissful sleep: Stern supports her findings regarding sleep solutions by offering a program online.
Step #1 – incorporate the critical pillars of sleep hygiene- these are simple actions you can take immediately both physically and emotionally. A few examples of great sleep hygiene are: avoid caffeine in the evening, avoid watching or reading high intense action that revs you up, and keeping your body cool in the evening. These are a few of the habits to incorporate to prepare you for a good night’s sleep.
Step #2 – it’s important that you learn how to release negative emotions throughout your day, to raise your emotional state and well-being. The EFT tapping technique easily releases stress, anger, frustration etc. The more you release during the day and come back to alignment, it will become much easier to fall asleep, as you are not accumulating stress.
Step #3 – learn the “special tapping” to go and stay asleep. This is the cutting edge part of the formula. In the evening you are balancing the energetic system to decrease the stress. And the evening tapping takes about 8 minutes. Stern made a commitment to use the tapping every night for 30 days to resolve years of no sleep. And within 6 weeks, she cured herself completely , of her 19 year bout with insomnia.
Step #4 – you participate in a deeply relaxing meditation to enhance your ability to go to sleep. Many of her clients have reported not needing step 4, as they were already sleeping.
