What is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)?

written by Head Health Nutter November 6, 2010

How would you like to process negative emotions in minutes? Or find relief to physical symptoms, addictions and resolve those pesky emotional issues holding you back? In today’s post we learn about a non-invasive healing method, Emotional Freedom Techniques® (E.F.T.).

Based on the theory that “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system,” EFT is an emotional form of acupuncture. There are no needles in this therapy, though, and once you know the basics, you can easily do it yourself – anywhere, anytime and for any issue (pretty much).

Gary Craig, the developer of EFT, explains:

…we tap with the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian points while the client is “tuned in” to the problem. To some newcomers, this may seem strange. To others, it hits the bullseye and represents a missing piece to the healing puzzle… I’ve lost count of the number of phobias, traumatic memories, guilt, grief and physical ailments that have been elegantly relieved, often in minutes, by this procedure. Even though EFT violates just about every conventional belief out there, the results remain remarkable. EFT isn’t perfect, of course. We don’t get 100% positive results. But it usually works well and the results are sometimes spectacular. And it often works when nothing else will.

For a sneak peak into some of the spectacular results obtained by using EFT, check out the documentary, The Tapping Solution. Check out the 2:27 minute trailer above.

Are you interested in details, like how do you do it and some of the particulars? Check out this Introduction to Emotional Freedom Technique video (18:49 minutes):

The best thing about EFT is that the method seems to celebrate and accept negative emotions as part of being human. We need to feel negative emotions but they cause us harm over time. When you’re ready, EFT clears energy pathways so you can process them.

Have you tried EFT? Did it work for you? And if it has, how long have you been doing it?

I’m so glad I came across your blog and this post. As an emotional eater and a certified holistic health coach, I have started experimenting with EFT on myself and my clients for cravings and associated emotions. So far, it’s been successful. Has anyone tried it for these reasons? I’d love to know what others experiences have been!

Hi Sheena, thanks for popping by Live Lighter!

I’ve only recently discovered EFT and started playing around with it. There was one session where I definitely felt something – I started sobbing!

I’m an emotional eater, too, and very happy to hear that EFT has been working for you and your clients in this area. May I ask what phrases (I think they’re called something else…) you’ve been using?
