Release Anger with EFT: A Simple yet Powerful Tool to Manage Your Emotions

As a professional therapist, I have seen countless clients struggling with anger management issues. Anger can be a powerful emotion that can impact every aspect of our lives, from our relationships to our work performance. Fortunately, there are effective techniques to help release anger and improve our overall well-being. One such technique is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), also known as tapping. In this article, I will explain how EFT can help release anger and improve your life, the science behind it, and the steps to practice it.

Introduction to EFT(Emotional Freedom Technique)

EFT is a simple yet powerful technique that combines acupressure and cognitive therapy to release negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, and depression. It involves tapping on specific acupressure points on the body while focusing on the negative emotion or belief. EFT is based on the principle that negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system, and by tapping on these points, we can restore the energy flow and release the negative emotion.

Understanding anger and its impact on our lives

Anger is a natural emotion that we all experience from time to time. It is a normal response to stress, frustration, or perceived threat. However, when anger becomes frequent or intense, it can have a negative impact on our lives. Chronic anger can lead to health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. It can also damage our relationships, work performance, and overall well-being.

How EFT can help release anger

EFT can help release anger by addressing the underlying emotional and psychological issues that contribute to it. By tapping on specific acupressure points, we can release the negative emotions and beliefs that are stored in our body’s energy system. EFT can also help reprogram our subconscious mind, which is responsible for our automatic emotional reactions.

The science behind EFT and how it works

The science behind EFT is still in its infancy, but there is growing evidence to support its effectiveness. Studies have shown that EFT can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and improve emotional well-being. One study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease found that EFT was effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Another study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that EFT was effective in reducing anxiety and depression in college students.

The theory behind EFT is that tapping on specific acupressure points can stimulate the body’s energy meridians and restore the energy flow. This, in turn, can release the negative emotions and beliefs that are stored in the body’s energy system. EFT also involves cognitive therapy techniques, such as affirmations and visualization, to reprogram the subconscious mind

Steps to practice EFT for anger release

Identify the negative emotion or belief that you want to release. In this case, it is anger.

Rate the intensity of the emotion on a scale from 0 to 10.

Choose a setup phrase that acknowledges the negative emotion and affirms self-acceptance. For example, “Even though I feel angry, I deeply and completely accept myself.”

Tap on the other acupressure points while focusing on negative emotions or beliefs. These points include the top of the head,  eyebrow, side of the eye, under the eye, under the nose, under mouth, collarbone, and underarm,

After tapping on all the points, take a deep breath and re-rate the intensity of the emotion.
