Dog having fear issues? Cat peeing in the wrong places? Bird pulling feathers out? Let's try EFT- Emotional Freedom Technique aka Tapping. Once physical issues have been ruled out or are being managed a few rounds of tapping may (and often does) help with behavioral problems. It also helps with emotional issues like anxiety, depression, etc.
What is EFT? EFT focuses on "tapping" points that fall along the same meridians used for acupuncture and acupressure. Tapping on these points helps to restore balance to the body's energy which relieves symptoms of negative experiences or emotion.
Tapping is done by light finger pressure to particular points on the head and upper body while an emotion-based narrative is expressed. It can be done directly on the animal or person or with intention using a photo, picture, etc. Tapping has been successfully used to heal soldiers who suffer from Post traumatic stress.
I have used it on fearful dogs and they showed immediate confidence and with more sessions and support from their pet parent they became much calmer in previously fear-full situations.
So let's take action. It's best to arrange an animal communication session with 3 follow-up EFT sessions.
