Abstract

SEFT therapy (Spiritual Emotional Freedom Technique) combines spirituality in the form of prayer, sincerity, and submission with psychological energy in the form of a set of principles and techniques to utilize the body's energy system to improve the state of mind, emotions, and behavior which is carried out with three simple techniques, namely set- up, tune-in, and tapping. The use of SEFT therapy in reducing anxiety before menopause is based on the assumption that healing comes from God, so that individuals can sincerely and surrender with an emphasis on belief in God, precisely and simply so as to improve The Major Energy Meridians, which functions to neutralize physical and emotional problems as causes worry. This study aims to prove that SEFT therapy has effectiveness in reducing anxiety levels in pre menopausal women. The measuring instrument used in this study used the BAI (Back Anxiety Inventory). Subjects in this study amounted to 32 samples. The implementation of SEFT therapy was carried out with 3 techniques including set-up, tune-in, and tapping. The design in this study used a pretest-posttest control group design. The data analysis technique used the Mann-Whitney test comparing the experimental group and the control group. The results showed the value of p (0.000) <α 0.05. There was a difference in the level of anxiety between the experimental group and the control group. In the experimental group the average decrease in anxiety level was 23.12, while in the control group the decrease in anxiety level was 9.88. This shows that the Spiritual Emotional Freedom Technique therapy is effective in reducing anxiety levels in the experimental group, whereas in the control group it tends to increase or stagnate. SEFT therapy can be used as a complementary therapy in dealing with anxiety that often occurs in pre-menopausal mothers.
