Hi, I'm Dr. Sabrina Nichole Crouch, host of the podcast "F*ck Being Stuck". I was inspired by my own journey to healing chronic pain using meditation. This podcast spotlights the unrelenting women who went from managing to mastering their health challenges, and the badass alternative practitioners who are changing the way we heal.
On this episode of F**K Being Stuck, my guest Annie Moussu dives deep into the world of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and its powerful effects on releasing people-pleasing tendencies. Annie, a transformational leader, shares her personal journey of growing up in a household where sacrifice and people-pleasing were the norm. She reveals the toxic dynamics of her codependent marriage and how she and her husband embarked on a path of healing and transformation.
Annie explains how EFT tapping works by targeting specific acupuncture points to send calming signals to the amygdala, which is responsible for the fight or flight response. This technique helps reprogram the brain and allows individuals to approach difficult situations with confidence and assertiveness. By tapping into childhood memories and reframing limiting beliefs, EFT provides support and reassurance to one’s younger self.
The episode explores the science behind tapping, highlighting studies that demonstrate its effectiveness in reducing stress and cortisol levels. Annie emphasizes the accessibility of EFT, which can be learned by anyone, including children. She discusses its application in various settings, such as schools and prisons, and believes that as more people discover the efficacy of EFT, it will gain wider recognition and usage.
Annie shares practical tips for incorporating EFT into daily life, encouraging you to pay attention to bodily tension and inner experiences as a means of breaking the cycle of people-pleasing. She emphasizes the importance of addressing the emotional side of healing, as many issues are stored in the subconscious mind and body.
