Freedom Techniques (EFT)
Also known as “tapping”.
What Is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is an intervention that draws on various theories of
Modern Western Psychology and Ancient Eastern Medicine including Acupuncture (without needles),
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Thought Field
Therapy. During an EFT session, the person will focus on a specific
issue (emotional and/or physical) while he or she taps on certain end
points of the body's energy meridians. This technique is gentle and
effective and used to manage emotional and physical pain. It has been
said that an EFT session “feels similar to getting a massage while
engaging in counseling”
Freedom Techniques (EFT) was developed by Gary Craig in the 1990's.
His explanation of EFT is the following:
based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from
pain, diseases and emotional issues. Simply stated, it is an
emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren’t necessary.
Instead, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on
your body by tapping on them with your fingertips. The process is
easy to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It
launches off the EFT Discovery Statement which says…
cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy
is EFT used for?
following is only a sample of issues in which EFT has been
successful; it is not an all inclusive list. If you are suffering
