Introduction to EFT

EFT – Emotional Freedom Therapy

EFT is regarded as one of the prominent discoveries that says :-

  • "The disturbance in the body's energy system is the cause of all negative emotions."
  • Most of the physical pains and diseases are the consequence of our unresolved negative emotions.”

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a psychotherapeutic alternative medicine tool based on a theory that negative emotions are caused by disturbances in the body's energy points and that tapping on the energy points while thinking of a negative emotion alters the body's energy field, restoring it to balance.

Energy psychology has developed techniques that can help you to manipulate and use your life energy to better cope up with emotional problems. This is known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

EFT is based on the premise that the body’s energy system is linked to energy circuits, or meridians, that run throughout the body. The state of these meridians is directly affected by your emotional and physical health. By analogy, think of the meridians as rivers. Upsets in emotional or physical health lead to the equivalent of blockages or overflows in the rivers.

By setting right the meridians-- i.e. restoring the body’s energy status--, the emotional/physical disorder is righted, thus paving the way for natural growth.

What is EFT and how can it help ?

EFT has gained prominence in the medical field and it is mostly based on the traditional Chinese practice acupuncture. The energy points used in acupuncture are also used in EFT. It is stated that, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. EFT unblocks these energy points through gentle tapping. An EFT practitioner may tap on the client directly or teach the client how to tap alone.
The main presumption upon which EFT works is that emotions have an impact on physiological conditions and so it strives to free the body of emotional blockages, which may have been caused by the stress of infertility or by other stresses. EFT can be very cathartic and clients may cry; they always feel a huge sense of relief and lightness through the EFT work.
Based on impressive new discoveries regarding the body's subtle energies, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has proven successful in thousands of clinical cases. It applies to just about every emotional, health and performance issue you can name and it often works where nothing else will.

Background of EFT :

EFT was created by Gary Craig in the mid 1990s and is meant to be a simplification and improvement of Roger Callahan's Thought Field Therapy (TFT) techniques. Craig trained with Callahan in the early 1990s. In 1993, Craig was the first person Callahan trained in his most advanced procedure, a proprietary procedure known as Voice Technology. Craig found through his experience that the sequence of tapping points did not matter and that special proprietary procedures were therefore unnecessary, so by the mid 1990s he had simplified Callahan's procedures.
