EFT: Emotional Freedom Technique

Tapping the brow point

EFT is a three-minute process that's easy to learn and can bring immediate and satisfying emotional release. Also referred to as "tapping," EFT helps release release distressing emotions, leaving you with increased calm and confidence.

I use EFT with my clients because it is especially helpful in reducing anxiety, stress, worry and fears of all kinds.

EFT is a new tool to help you resolve strong emotions. EFT works at 2 levels:

  1. EFT provides immediate relief so you can feel better in minutes
  2. EFT also works deeper to help release and heal the root cause of the problem

Check out this EFT introduction by EFT Founder Gary Craig:



How Does EFT Work?

Like Reiki and other forms of energy healing, EFT is based on the idea that there is a "life force energy" flowing through all living things. This vital energy of life is called "ki" or "chi" or "prana" in various Eastern traditions.

When this vital life energy is balanced and flowing freely through you, you can achieve a happy, healthy state of well-being. However, blockages or imbalance in your body's energy system can lead to pain or dis-ease.

EFT works on your Energy Meridians

Energy "Meridians"

Thousands of years ago, the Chinese mapped out the energy pathways of the body into a system of energy "meridians." These meridians are central to Eastern wellness practices, acupuncture, acupressure, and a wide array of other healing techniques...including EFT.

EFT works by stimulating your energy meridians, allowing emotional and energetic releases.

When our energies are allow to flow freely, the body has amazing abilities to heal itself.


The Critical Connection:

EFT is based on the premise that there is an emotional contributor to all dis-ease (physical, psychological, emotional).

It just makes sense that if you spend a long time carrying around anger, fears, grief, traumas, blame, guilt, resentments or other emotional pain, the body becomes stressed.

Stress can eventually show up physically in the form of pain and dis-ease. The medical community is increasingly telling us that in order to improve physical conditions such as anxiety, depression, headaches, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux and more (!), that we need to reduce stress.

Q: What is the biggest thing that blocks the flow of energy and causes all sorts of distressing emotions and dis-ease?

A: How emotional issues and past traumas are held in the body.


What Can I Use EFT For?

EFT can be used with a variety of issues to help you achieve more happiness, better relationships, greater emotional well-being, and improved physical health and wellness. Try EFT for:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • OCD
  • Fears
  • Worry
  • Stress
  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Negative Thinking
  • Depression
  • Grief and Sadness
  • Addictions
  • Traumas
  • Relationship issues
  • Eating issues/weight loss
  • Sleep problems
  • Pain
  • Physical issues

EFT Founder Gary Craig says "Try it on everything" because there are very few or no negative side effects of EFT.

EFT doesn't do everything for everyone. If it was an instant solution to all problems, everyone in the world would be doing it and there would be no problems. If you've been carrying around chronic stress, pain, or dis-ease for many years, it will take time to get to the root cause of the problem to heal and release it. And it can be most effective when EFT is combined with other tools or treatments.

EFT is not a substitute for medical or mental health treatment. It can be a wonderful, integrative adjunct to other treatments.
