I have noticed an increase in the percentage of people who fear travelling on a plane. Mainly, to me to overcome their fear of being out of control, trapped or the plane being unsafe.
At one end of the scale, for some this fear is so real, they avoid travelling, and even talking about it can produce physical reactions, sweating, stomachache, nausea and headaches.
At the other end of the scale, people will travel by plane, although the experience is very unpleasant and merely a means to an end to get to their destination.
One of my favourite therapies I offer, at Blossom Wellbeing Cheshire is EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique. It is a non-invasive, mind/body tool that may remove physical and emotional blocks from your energy system with nothing more than your fingers and intention to feel better.
It may be the simplest, fastest ways to heal from almost any kind of trauma, whether it happened yesterday or 50 years ago.
EFT is so easy to learn and apply, gentle, forgiving and non-judgemental. It can be adapted to any situation and can be taught to children and adults alike.
I love seeing a client, who arrived at the beginning of their session very stressed, leaving relaxed with a smile on their face.
While results can sometimes take time with EFT, it is possible to get immediate and long-lasting relief from phobias, anxiety, stress, physical pain and allergies. It is best described as "acupuncture without needles."
I have treated clients where in just a couple of sessions the fear of flying is tapped away, leaving them free to enjoy their travels.
We have all experienced past events, a trauma of some sort and these can lead to anxiety and intense feelings which we carry through our whole lives. However, I can help you let go of this.
What to expect from your first EFT session:
We begin with a free consultation, which can be carried out face to face, over the phone or via Skype.
This consultation covers your general health and wellbeing, your primary concerns, any symptoms you may experience, any areas you would like improvement in and also what you would like to accomplish with this treatment.
I will then fully explain how EFT can help you.
We will perform some breathing techniques and visualisation to centre you and make you feel safe.
As we begin, you may feel your anxiety is high, as you safely imagine flying. We will then tap through this trauma until you are able comfortably to imagine taking a whole flight without feeling stressed.
I will also teach you how to tap yourself should the need arise before, during of after taking a flight. (e.g. if any turbulence occurs in-flight you can tap yourself).
I recently volunteered in a charity fashion show. I had no fears at all until I was about to go on stage. My heart started pounding, I was shaking, and my adrenaline was pumping.
As I waited to go up the steps, I tapped myself on the side of my hand, my stress levels dropped, and I was free to enjoy taking part in the show, and it was great fun!
