EFT works through tapping on meridian beginning and end points. Meridians are one of several energy systems in the body, like for example chakras. They are energy pathways that are the closest to the physical body. There are 14 meridians in total. These are energy pathways that are the closest to the physical body. Individual meridians are connected to specific organs, muscles, glands, and tissue. For vital health and energy, it is important that energy crosses over from one side of the body to the other side, like the left brain hemisphere controls the right side of the body, and the rights brain hemisphere controls the left side of the body, and that the energy flows freely through all the meridians. Through tapping on specific acupressure points on the meridian, an electric signal is send to the brain that changes the activity in the brain when it is exposed to, or tuned in to a stressful event.
