EFT for stress relief to Moria Camp

Update posted by Serena Van Dijl On Mar 17, 2020

What is EFT?

Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, EFT focuses on the meridian points to restore balance to your body’s energy. Restoring this energy balance can relieve symptoms of stress and trauma.
Based on Chinese medicine, meridian points are thought of as areas of the body energy flows through. These pathways help balance energy flow to maintain your health. Any imbalance can influence disease or sickness.
Tapping helps you access your body’s energy and send signals to the part of the brain that controls stress. By stimulating the meridian points through EFT tapping you can reduce the stress or negative emotion you feel from your issue, ultimately restoring balance to your disrupted energy.

These are the main tapping points:

By tapping on these points you can reduce symptoms of stress and trauma.

Why EFT to Moria

The people living in Moria already endured a lot before they arrived in the camp. War, oppression, violence, torture, rape, losing family members, a life threatening journey to Europe etc. Most of the residents are severely traumatized and are now living in inhumane living conditions in Moria camp. Overcrowded, exposed to the elements of nature, poor diet, long waiting hours in line for food -medical help, limited medical care, almost no access to mental healthcare, uncertainty, violence and so on. They are constantly under stress and triggered in their trauma.

The effects of stress:

on the body

Headache, muscle tension or pain, chest pain, fatigue, digestive problems, sleep problems, weakened immune system, illness.

on your mood

Anxiety, restlessness, lack of motivation or focus, feeling overwhelmed, sadness or depression, irritability or anger.

on your behavior

Overeating or undereating, angry outbursts, drug or alcohol misuse, tobacco use, social withdrawal, self harm.

EFT is of huge benefit as it can lower stress levels by 40%. It works with the nervous system, supporting the body to go into a calm response rather than a highly charged state and research demonstrates it can:

  • decrease cortisol by 37%
  • increase antibodies by 113%
  • reduce anxiety by 40%
  • improves happiness by 31%

By teaching them how to use this simple but effective technique, we can empower them to take charge of their emotional, mental and physical health.

We provide:

  • Workshops and group sessions - to teach and spread this simple self help technique.
  • One on one sessions - for people who need extra guidance/care.
  • Training's - to become a facilitator.

Our aim is to spread it far and wide! To help as many people as we can, Tapping Into Peace.

But to make this possible we need your help! We need donations for:

  1. Investment and rent for the space to provide this service
  2. materials to set up the space
  3. stipends for our translators

We sincerely hope you consider a donation to our cause.
