EFT – Changing Emotional Patterns

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a simple yet effective energy therapy to treat physical and emotional ailments. EFT is proven to be effective on a variety of health and psychological  issues, including anxiety or stress, fears and limiting beliefs. Studies have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional and even physical distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often re-balance itself, and accelerate healing.

Tapping into Emotional & Physical Health

Do you have a physical condition of mysterious origin that persists despite treatment? Could there be an emotional component that is triggering your symptoms?

EFT is a mind-body-spirit self-care approach which involves tapping on acupuncture points while repeating emotionally-charged statements that relate to specific health issues, often referred to as acupressure for the emotions. It is an evidence-based method that has been shown in several dozen randomized controlled trials to be effective for a variety of conditions including anxiety, weight loss and food cravings, depression, PTSD, phobias, pain, and other physical symptoms. As a form of energy psychology, EFT addresses the root energetic imbalances that result from trauma and other emotional stressors.

Inflammatory, autoimmune, and pain disorders may be somatic metaphors for unresolved trauma

Diseases such as sinusitis and post nasal drip may be a sign of grief manifesting in the body as inner crying. Frozen shoulder may be triggered by anger trapped inside the joint. Sometimes the symptoms correlate with imbalances in the chakra and Chinese five element systems. Cardiac issues can represent a symbolic broken heart. Dermatological conditions such as eczema may reflect emotional issues that are stuck under your skin.

Adverse Childhood Experiences are risk factors for chronic disease as studied 

Sometimes a current symptom may represent an echo of a past adverse childhood experience that has never been healed. Autoimmune diseases may be related to disruptions in the first chakra at a young age where the primary goal of safety in the world is never achieved leading the body’s defence system to turn on itself. You may be able  to decrease its impact on your health through tapping on past events.

Past trauma can act as a malware program stuck in your acupuncture meridians

When a negative experience occurs, it is as if a program you don’t want is installed in your acupuncture meridian system. Tapping on the acupuncture points is like hitting the delete key, so you can uninstall the program. Once the program is gone and you resave the file, the memory will be altered forever. The next time you open the file the pictures and story will still be there, but the program will be gone. Then your body will not respond in a negative way, so you will have emotional freedom.

Limiting beliefs often get in the way of healing physical illnesses

  • “I need to find someone to fix me.”
  • “I don’t have the ability to heal myself.”
  • “I just want to suppress these symptoms.”
  • “I don’t trust my body anymore as it has let me down.”

EFT can be easily combined with mindful body scanning for optimal results

Mindfulness meditation can assist us in becoming aware of limiting beliefs that are getting in our way. These beliefs often manifest as tail-enders or negative self-talk that come after our most enthusiastic affirmations thus negating their positive effects. Mindful body scanning often reveals areas in the body where emotions are stuck causing symptoms. EFT can be used to mobilize these emotions blocking the meridian system allowing healing to happen.

Tapping with breathwork and Imagery for performance anxiety and attracting abundance

Tapping can also be used for other life challenges that have emotional components. In our Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) for Self-Healing workshop, Emotional & Physical Healing with EFT & Essential Oils, other uses such as overcoming fears and phobias will be discussed. 

Tapping is particularly useful for dealing with performance anxiety, fear of public speaking and abundance issues related to past financial failures. Mindfulness, breathwork and imagery can be combined with tapping to optimize your self-healing abilities.Interested in learning more about EFT for Self-Healing?

EFT is also a premier tool to help you change your energy and manage your life better. Once you are able to release the emotions and limiting beliefs that are holding you back you can control what you attract into your life on every level, health, success, love and abundance, just to name a few.

EFT can be used for a variety of things, including :

  • Children’s Issues
  • Sports and other Performance
  • Public Speaking

Acupuncturists balance the energy system with needles, but with EFT you simply tune into the problem or issue by thinking about it. You then activate the meridian or acupuncture points by tapping on them to effectively release negative emotions and physical symptoms. At the end of the EFT session, you feel balanced and at peace.

What results and benefits can I get with EFT ?

  • Relieve Stress and/or Anxiety
  • Feel Calmer and Think More Clearly

Tapping into Emotional & Physical Health

Emotional & Physical Healing with EFT & Essential Oils

Of all the five human senses, smell is the most direct way to access our mood, memory, emotions, and even physiology. That is why aromatherapy is so powerful.

Deliberate use of essential oils can radically transform your perspective and interrupt negative emotions or stress, which we know is the leading cause of illness. Aromatherapy isn’t just a fad or trend.

The use of essential oils dates back at least one thousand years, where humankind has used aromatic plants for incense, medicine and perfumery for thousands of years.

It is believed that the Egyptians invented the first distillation equipment and created oils infused with herbs for use in rituals, medicine, cosmetics, and perfumery. Years later Hippocrates (commonly referred to as the “Father of Medicine”) studied the effects of essential oils on health, and promoted their use for medicinal benefits.

More so recently scientific research into essential oils supports their use in natural healthcare, and is ushering in a new age.

In this workshop we apply Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) which involves gently tapping a sequence of meridian points on the body, complimenting with the appropriate essential oils in an empowering way to release unwanted emotions, rebalance the energies of the body to experience an inner sense of calm and clarity. EFT can be applied to release stress, phobias, negative emotions as well as physical problems encounter in everyday life.

Join us and experience how to tap away unwanted emotions and physical symptoms such as headaches, insomnia, chronic pain, frozen shoulders, weight gain etc. Complimented with breathwork and aromatic essential oils to enhance emotional and physical healing to improve clarity, sleep, mood and vitality.

I’m amazed with the effectiveness of the Emotional Freedom Technique after attending the workshop! Shirley explained the concept and steps in administering EFT very clearly and with the appropriate essential oils, we were able to reduce the intensity of our emotions and even unload some of our emotional baggage’s after several rounds of practice!

I find EFT a very useful and practical tool that empowers us to deal with stressful and challenging moments. Shirley is very patient throughout the session, she addressed all our questions to ensure that everyone learned the technique correctly. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to learn a tool to manage their emotions in a safe and quick way!


I am so glad to find the root cause of my nagging right shoulder pain with EFT and it healed me almost instantly! It is so easy to learn and convenient to practice anytime, anywhere ! The practice with the group is so meaningful and effective! Shirley is very nurturing, patient and knowledgeable. She is always cheerful and patient in answering all my questions.

Lynn Seoh

I’m so glad to have taken the step to sign up for the course and I learnt so much yesterday. For the first time after so long I slept through the night for 7hrs straight. Have been waking up at 2-3am and not been able to sleep after that. Thank you Shirley for this new technique which I’m sure will be very helpful in my journey to more self discovery and engagement with my emotions.

Agnes Domingo

Life saver ! I was 100% engaged! Everything shared had been very informative.
I really wished Shirley keeps helping people the way she helped me. If I have the money I would pay for my friends to join this EFT workshop! I am so thankful I chanced upon ReDefine Wellness, I feel so powerful now!


It was awesome and the EFT workshop helped me to a great extent in releasing the stored emotions. It is a wonderful day well spent. This EFT session is a milestone which helped me grow personally! Please continue the good work, a big thank you to you Shirley!


Excellent workshop! It helps to provide closer steps to self realisation. Interesting and intriguing topics were shared, prompting the desire to learn more!


This workshop really took me by surprise on how deep and intense EFT can be used as a healing and self-discovery tool! It is liberating to be able to identify old emotions that had been hidden and transforming these emotions can be so empowering!

Chong Shin Shin

It’s eye-opening and rewarding ! There are a lot of practice sessions to ensure we did it the right way to deal with the emotions instead of just the theory.

Kenneth Woo

A great and very insightful workshop which help us in better understanding and managing our emotions.

Sulbi Lee

This is indeed very helpful tool to apply our daily life, the detailed explanation are real life examples that I can relate to.

Tang Serping

I am totally new and have no prior knowledge of EFT. I must say I was very impressed to experience the instant results from the tapping during the EFT workshop . The release was instantly observed and it was felt both during and after the session. Thank you Shirley for the wonderful experience. It is truly a therapy that will be extremely beneficial to all !

Eleanor Slade

Great workshop. Worked really well online. I like that your workshop also address the science behind why these techniques work.

I haven’t practised EFT for several years and had forgotten how useful it is as a tool to deal with stress and negative emotions. I had never combined it with oils, and so this was a really nice addition. I found it all super useful and interesting and enjoyed it all!  The best day I have taken off work in a long tie. Thank you!

Duanchay Panyanouvong

Great workshop. I like that your workshop also address the science behind why these techniques work. 

I liked a lot the explanation first from EFT and then from oils and then the combination of both with practice. I also like the part of learning how to use the oils properly in conjunction with getting rid of unwanted emotion. 

I felt a real benefit out of it. I felt so light on that day!

Anastasia Ling

While I do use EFT and Essential Oils, I have only used them separately and never together. So I was really thrilled and intrigued when I found out Shirley is offering a workshop to show how to combine the two! 

It is a great overview for beginners to EFT and also a good refresher for regular users. The accompanying handout provided a lot of good information and references on both EFT and EO, when combined with the theory and practical sessions during the workshop, is comprehensive and truly a great value. You really get to add an immediate tool into your wellness toolkit after the session! 

Thushara Fernando

The workshop was well organised and constructed and all of it was very informative. This workshop empowers you to be more mindful and also reach your potential of achieving inner peace.

Ariana Wyss

Awesome workshop! We touched on so many interesting aspects around EFT and essential oils and the power when harnessed together!

Angeline Lim, EFT Healing

I had a fear and this particular fear started from my childhood. I am a proactive person, who takes charge of changing whatever that is to be changed in my life. I would read books, go to deep moments of soul searching, meditation and thought I can release my own fear. But I realize despite so many methods I tried,

it was still there getting much of my attention and affecting my relationships with everyone.

There was one day when I come to know about ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’. I am not sure how it would help, but a voice within me nudges me to accept this guidance.

The greatest gift besides knowing about EFT, is to have the chance to meet Shirley Tay. She is one the few rare practitioners of EFT in Singapore and if not for her, I really have no idea where to look for someone who knows EFT to guide me. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. This is so well said. I truly believe she is god-sent and our paths crossed for a beautiful reason. Her gifted skills to heal and serve have shown me a way and I am truly thankful for her existence in my life.

From the 2 EFT sessions with Shirley, I would say she is very dedicated, very professional, very knowledgeable and extremely caring. I feel so comfortable communicating with her. It’s actually not easy for me to tell a stranger this past but in front of Shirley, the communication was so natural. She connected to me like a friend who was there to share my problems and she assures me she is always here to listen.

I would like to say it’s really important to find ways to release our emotional wounds or stress because it’s really not beneficial for our well-being to try to ‘keep’ or ‘ignore’ them. I believe Emotional Freedom Technique is one of the latest methods to address both the health and emotional issues.

Thank you Shirley, you have literally ‘saved’ me. You are a blessing to mankind and I send my greatest wishes and prayers to you for your gift to heal and serve to shine a light in everyone’s life.

We look forward to seeing you for one of the classes or workshops soon. If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Us .
