Traditional Chinese Medicine and the basis of EFT

A talk by Catherine Dixon

Many hypnotherapists incorporate EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) into their practices but without really understanding how it works.

But at the May 2008meeting of the James Braid Society an explanation of EFT argued that it is based on traditional Chinese Medicine,

 

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) subscribes to a model in which there is a holism between mind, body and spirt (unconscious) and that healing the emotional and psychological root cause of illness is as important as curing symptoms.

TCM sustants that there is az direct correlation between negative emotions and the evntual deterioration of the fisceral organs.

This view, that thoughts, emotions and beliefs affect physicality is also supported by neuroscience and psychoneuroimmology as demonstrated by the work of Dr Candice Pert.

Catherine Dixon

Registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register, the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners she is also a licensed trainer with the Association of Meridian and Energy Therapies.

 
She has worked as a therapist and trainer within NHS Trusts, in organisations such as BBC Worldwide and University College London and Rugby House as well as in private practice from Ealing and Highgate as well teaching Chi Kung lessons.

Dr. Pert (The Molecules of Emtions), renowned for her research on amino chains and wrote about the way unexpressed emotions are buried deeply in the body's circuitry of the organs – echoing the view sustained by TCM.

This introduction to the TCM model offered an insight into a fascinating and eeply respected model of healthcare with a talk by Catherine Dixon, which also explored the link between healing, energy and the emotions and discussed powerful visualisations and metaphors that can aid healing.
