Reiki grandmaster JOYITA GOSWAMI discusses with BizNewsConnect Editor B N KUMAR the success of EFT and its importance in the current stressful times
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) helps in resolving a wide range of issues, from chronic pain, anxiety, addictions, weight issues, PTSD to financial issues and inner child trauma.
EFT, a Universal healing tool that is non-invasive and easy to learn and practice, has been founded by Joyita Goswami, a Reiki grandmaster and a wellness coach.EFT is extremely effective for physical, emotional, and performance issues and more than 500 people have previously undergone her training and have reported success stories.
BizNewsConnect: How did you get into EFT – if you can explain with an anecdote or two…
Joyita Goswami: I have been attracted to spirituality & light energy since my childhood. I always believed that every human body has the potential to heal itself. And then the search began, which led to learning several healing modalities & EFT was one of them.
BNC: What kind of differences that you find among cases during the pre and post the pandemic?
Joyita: Pre-pandemic, people came only when they tried everything and wanted to try alternative healing also. Post pandemic, people come for mental wellness and are curious to know how if they too can learn. They are interested in making wellness and alternate healing a part of their daily life.
BNC: The pandemic has brought in lots of mental emotional disturbances. What kind of cases have you come across?
Joyita: The cases range from depression, grief, anxiety, high blood pressure, insomnia amongst grown-ups. For young children, it is obesity, lack of concentration, getting upset seeing fights at home, or not getting to meet their friends. For very old people, there is a plethora of physical problems. Fear, anxiety and addictions are very rampant, which have come to the fore now.
BNC: Apart from work from home, increasing domestic pressure has been causing a lot of distress. Comment please.
Joyita: That’s absolutely true. Women in joint families have to take care of elders, children, manage the home and their profession. Many have complained that they cannot join my workshops as it is difficult find a quiet corner in the house.
BNC: While the experts tell us to keep anxieties at bay, it is not always practically possible considering the limitations of typical middleclass families. How do we tackle such situations?
Joyita: Keeping anxiety at bay is tough for everyone across classes. Practicing some alternative healing modalities, can help. My organisation Healing Miracles believes in empowering everyone, and hence we teach many of these anxiety releasing techniques and also conduct monthly guided
meditation Free of cost.
BNC: If there is anything that is in short supply, it is time. We never find time for important things such as stress relief! Comment please. Please also give a few time-management tips.
Joyita: We should find time for the most important thing in life and that is our health – mental and physical. After all, what is the use of running around, when your health is at stake. Once can try waking up half an hour early to kickstart the day with Mindfullness, EFT or Reiki practice or a meditation, and end the day with Forgiveness and Gratitude. A lot of people spend time on their phones, social media or watching TV or webseries. We can curtail some time from that and make time for important things.
BNC: Can you please throw some light on your EFT and how it helps us.
Joyita: EFT is a Universal healing tool that is non-invasive and easy to learn and practice, and is extremely effective for physical, emotional, and performance issues. It is based on the premise that our unresolved emotional issues can be cleared by tapping certain energy meridians or hotspots of the body. Tapping is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. This therapy helps in resolving a wide range of issues, from chronic pain, anxiety, addictions, weight issues, PTSD to financial issues and inner child trauma.
BNCWhat is the typical duration of the treatment? Does it also warrant follow-ups?
Joyita: It’s a practice which takes 20 minutes of your time, at the most. Those who come for healing sessions, do not need to come back. In fact, like I said earlier I believe in empowering people, so I teach EFT to them in periodic workshops that I conduct. I also take refresher courses as many of my students love to learn new ways to tap, or simple for a lively interaction.
BNC: Can you give a couple of case studies?
Joyita: Sure. One of my students, learnt EFT 3 months back and she taught her mother. Now the mother does tapping every day for few minutes and whenever the daughter complains of any pain, her mother tells her to do EFT. Isn’t it just wonderful, that one workshop and this girl not only learnt, but also taught her mother?
In another case, a client was having food cravings and was overweight. She had come to me for consultation, and after a few sessions, we could relate it to her childhood traumas regarding food, poverty and hunger. After few more sessions, she was able to stop unhealthy eating. Then I urged her to learn and empower herself. Now she eats wisely, exercises moderately, lost excess weight and has managed to maintain her weight.
