EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique (or it is sometimes called Energy Meridian Tapping) and it has its roots in ancient Chinese medicine and the modern science of Applied Kinesiology. It is an emotional equivalent to acupuncture without the needles – in EFT we tap on certain energy points to improve the flow of energy and clear blockages.
Thirty three years ago Dr Roger Callahan developed Thought Field Therapy (TFT) using acupoint stimulation for relief of traumatic memories and eleven years later Gary Craig who trained in TFT with him developed EFT. Although it can be done as a stand-alone therapy I find I can get quicker results for emotional issues using tapping in combination with hypnosis. EFT focuses on negative self-talk and deletes energetic body memories to provide a space for positive hypnotic suggestions to go in. I teach my clients a very simple protocol so they can work on their own self-healing between appointments.
EFT is an approach that can bring surprising results and forward movement into all sorts of old, stuck problems. It is quick, and it’s painless and improving the flow of energy is always a good thing.
