In today’s fast-paced and demanding world, many individuals are grappling with mental health issues, particularly depression. While traditional therapies and medications have been effective for some, others seek alternative methods to find relief.

Depression is a complex and debilitating mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can cause feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed.

While traditional therapies like medication and counseling have been effective for many, there is a growing interest in alternative approaches that offer a more holistic and empowering approach to healing.

One such technique is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), commonly known as tapping. In this blog post, we will explore how EFT can provide relief for depression and offer a fresh perspective on managing this challenging condition.

Understanding EFT and Tapping Therapy

Tapping Therapy

EFT, or tapping therapy, is a holistic healing technique that combines elements of traditional Chinese medicine, psychology, and modern energy medicine.

It involves gently tapping on specific acupressure points on the body while focusing on emotional and physical distress. This process is believed to rebalance the body’s energy system and address the root causes of various issues, including depression.

Tapping therapy for depression aims to address the underlying emotional causes of the condition. By tapping on these specific points, the energy flow in the body is restored, helping to release negative emotions, reduce stress, and promote a sense of calm and well-being.

The Benefits of EFT for Depression

1. Emotional Release:

Depression is often accompanied by a range of negative emotions such as sadness, guilt, shame, and anger. EFT provides a safe and gentle way to release these emotions.

The tapping process helps to disrupt the body’s stress response and allows individuals to process and release these emotions, leading to emotional relief and a greater sense of inner peace.

2. Stress Reduction:

Stress Reduction

Stress is a significant contributor to depression. EFT has been shown to reduce stress levels by activating the body’s relaxation response.

Tapping on the specific meridian points helps to calm the nervous system, decrease cortisol levels (the stress hormone), and promote a state of relaxation and tranquility.

3. Cognitive Shift:

EFT involves the repetition of positive affirmations while tapping on the meridian points. This process helps individuals reframe negative thought patterns and replace them with more positive and empowering beliefs.

By addressing negative self-talk and challenging distorted thinking, EFT can contribute to a more positive outlook on life, leading to a reduction in depressive symptoms.

 4. Self-Empowerment:


EFT is a self-help technique that can be practiced independently. Once individuals learn the tapping sequence, they have a powerful tool to manage their emotional well-being. This sense of empowerment can boost self-confidence and provide a greater sense of control over one’s emotions and mental state.

5. Complementary Approach:

EFT can be used in conjunction with traditional therapies and medication for depression. Many individuals find that EFT complements their existing treatment plan and enhances the overall effectiveness of their therapeutic journey. It can also be a useful technique for managing depressive symptoms in between therapy sessions or during challenging times.

Hi, Avisha : You are an incredibly gifted tarot card reader and the reading with you recently was truly an enlightening experience. Your readings are both insightful and accurate, providing valuable guidance and direction for those seeking answers. Your intuition and ability to connect with the cards is truly remarkable. You have a deep understanding of the tarot and how to interpret the meanings of the cards. The reading was delivered with compassion and understanding, and I left feeling reassured and positive. Your ability to help people gain clarity and direction in their lives is admirable. Your readings are not only precise but also very helpful in providing deeper understanding. You possess a unique talent in deciphering and interpreting the messages of the cards. I appreciate the time and energy you put into every reading. Most importantly you said exactly same as what my horoscope guru has told before. I thank you for sharing your gifts with me.

"One of the best experiences of my life! I have worked with many healers, but the experience with Avisha was unique. Above all, we covered and healed as many areas in 11 days as we would “normally” in 4 months. With her range of knowledge, she is a real gift to anyone who will work with her."

Often heard that " life is a roller coaster", experienced this recently.

Life is unpredictable, what is happening next is next to impossible to explain, a time came in my life where there was darkness everywhere, my sister was inch by inch by my side. Lots of talks, discussions, and solutions were done but all in vain. Then my sister introduced me to Avisha Mathur.

Words fail to describe her. If you are stuck in life and have lost your direction of life Avisha is the google.

Right from the first meeting my problems became smaller and smaller and I became clearer and clearer. She is a perfect blend of not less and not too much. Her tough and appropriate counselling gave me an awakening and nudge to move away from the inflicted dilemmas, she helped me to come out of my mental loop of problem and solution. She made me realize that the remote control of my life is in my hands.Avisha guided me like a small child lost in woods .My life is still under construction but now I know which step to take next.

A big difference, a huge change and I regained my lost smile which was very dear to me. Thank you Avisha. Buzz her if vou are stuck in life. # rise above the problems with AVISHA.

I connected with Dr Avisha at the lowest point in my life (both personally and professionally). I had lost my confidence and doubted myself even for simple tasks.

Routine jobs would overwhelm me.

I couldn't talk to my dear ones and gradually felt disconnected from everyone. A painful miscarriage made me realize that i needed help.

Trealised how paralysed i was with all the negative thoughts and energy inside me. That's when i took 11 day session with Dr. Avisha, who was referred by a common friend. In the first session itself i could feel a connect with her and conversing with her (online) came very easy to me. What amazed me the most was how Dr. Avisha could perceive my feelings even when we were not talking. So after 3-4 sessions, one day i was troubled by something and i had a restless night going through the issue. In the next session Dr. Avisha told me how she could feel me having a debate last night (which i was doing mentally with my self).

Other sessions revealed how i was affected by my childhood events and how i can let go of my thoughts and inhibition to be myself again. Her non-judgmental and kind conversations helped me to be true to myself. After the 11 day session, i really did feel as if the mist of negative energy was lifting away from me. Gradually i took hold of my life and started bringing in positive changes in my routine which boosted my mental and physical health. Her sessions helped me find myself again and de-clutter my negative thoughts.

Since her sessions, i feel more confident in taking charge of my life. earlier i used to find various reasons for how i will fail a task and now even when i find myself in a challenging situation, i find a solution. Her continued support for the last one year has kept me being mentally stronger and more active.
Much gratitude

v\Living away from parents, siblings itself takes a toll on your health mind and soul, that too during the covid times, when you had no idea whether you will meet your dear ones again...

During these dreadful times, I came across Dr Avisha's energy healing sessions.

It was the bestest thing that happened to me during those tiring times.

It brought a ray of sunshine in my gloomy mind.

It made me relaxed not only physically but also mentally.

The energy healing sessions with her were the best part of the day and slowly the therapy lead me into positivity. It gave me hopes and made me a happy healthy soul.

I would totally recommend these beautiful healing session to everyone who is having a hard time in their lives.
