Certified EFT Practitioner
What is a Certified EFT Practitioner?
Emotional freedom technique (EFT), which is also known as emotional tapping, is a therapy that focuses on the energy in your body. The intention of emotional tapping is to balance the energy in the body by removing any blocks to improve the energy flow through the body. You must focus on the negative thoughts and emotions while specific points on the body, known as meridians, are tapped. This helps to create new pathways in the brain that can change the way you think.
A Certified EFT Practitioner is someone that has received education and passed exams to become certified to provide the emotional freedom technique on a patient. You do not need certification to become a EFT practitioner; it is voluntary. However, when one becomes a Certified EFT Practitioner, you have learned the requirements to practice this specialty. These standards define the code of ethics by which you function as a practitioner. When you are certified, that does not mean you are licensed. Licensing is not the same as certification, however certification is how professionals recognize the level of education that is achieved by receiving a certification. A certification can help you obtain a job because potential employees recognize the certification proves you adhere to a strong ethical code and have practical experience with EFT.
