What is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
Affectionately called Tapping!
EFT means "Emotional Freedom Techniques" and is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.
Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.
EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including dozens of clinical trials, have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.

EFT meets the criteria for evidence-based treatments proposed by Division 12 of the American Psychological Association (APA). EFT is currently being used by the United States Veterans Administration for veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) and is substantially effective in reducing or eliminating stress, emotional pain, and bouts of severe depression. *
