Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or "Tapping" is a mind-body approach for mental and emotional transformation, utilizing the energy system of the body to facilitate profound changes in the way you think and feel. EFT is like acupuncture for your mind and emotions.
In the short time since it's inception by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has provided relief from all manner of problems and conditions, often in startlingly quick time and after long and painful periods of searching for a cure. The diversity of successful treatments have ranged from trauma and abuse, phobias, self sabotaging behavior patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of anxiety, depression, addictions, and physical illness, to name but a few.
While related to acupuncture, EFT does not use needles. Instead, we use finger tapping on certain key acupuncture points while focusing on whatever specific issue or problem we'd like to change. We're essentially discharging, or sloughing off, whatever is stuck - feelings, beliefs, behaviors and sometimes even physical symptoms. Properly done, EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and thus often reduces the conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours. Because the techniques are so simple, they can be used effectively as a self-help tool, which empowers people to actively contribute to their own healing and development process.
The medical profession has long known that emotional issues can dramatically affect our body chemistry and that, in turn, can lead to everything from rashes and headaches to addictions, impaired immune systems and cancer. We see consistent evidence of this when we apply the Tapping process. As guilt, anger, fear, trauma and the like become resolved, physical ailments often subside simultaneously.
