What is EFT?

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique and belongs to a new class of treatment called Energy Psychology. The EFT process was developed in the early 1990s by Gary Craig, a Personal Performance Coach in California.

EFT is based on the discovery by the Clinical Psychologist Dr Roger Callahan, that emotional discomfort is caused by a disruption in the mind/body energy system. As a result of his discovery, he developed the Thought Field Therapy, which is based on the ancient wisdom of Acupuncture and Kinesiology.

EFT uses gentle tapping movements to stimulate acupuncture points on the face and body. While tapping, the identified problem is being verbalized and supported with some verbal affirmation. This combination balances the energy system and appears to relieve psychological stress and physical pain, and resumes the natural healing abilities within body and mind. It is a safe, easy and non-invasive method and has been used to help with emotions such as anxiety, phobias, depression, grief, and anger as well as physical pain and illness. Mental health professionals as well as doctors are discovering the power of EFT!

EFT is a Body Energy Technique with profound psychological effects, and with that combination it plays a leading role in a revolution in psychology that is only just beginning.

If you feel excited about this innovative technique, you can learn it easily and practice it yourself in your everyday life.
