If you are feeling stressed as an educator, overwhelmed by COVID 19 and worried about what is happening in your own and the early childhood world, then this 40 minute information/training session is for you. Looking for a tool that is free, easy to use and will reduce stress, tension and anxiety in your body after just a few minutes?

At the end of the video, you will have learnt the basic Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and be able to use the tool to relieve your own stresses.

What is EFT:

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a simple technique which is a self applied, stress reduction tool – it is similar to acupuncture but without the needles!  EFT stimulates various pressure points on the face and body to relieve stress, which then releases many psychological based illness and complaints, such as anxiety/stress, pain, trauma, and weight/food issues.

How does it work:

Using two fingers to tap on certain pressure points on the body, EFT will have a calming effect on the stress centre of the brain, the amygdala, and the hippocampus (the brain’s memory centre). This calming effect will reduce the amount of cortisol, the stress hormone, that is in your body.

Clinical trials have shown that EFT will rapidly reduce the effect of emotional distress, and have an immediate calming effect. EFT can be used easily throughout the day, at home, in the classroom or in the car. It can be used by children as young as 3 years of age.
