What is EFT and Why is Everyone Talking about It?
Quite simply EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is the most exciting breakthrough in therapy and personal development in a long time. It is a new treatment tool for anxieties, fears, trauma, procrastination, addictions, weight loss and much more: a gentle highly effective way to transform any issues blocking emotional happiness or personal achievement.

EFT is one of the new Power Therapies, also known as ‘Energy Psychology’ which are developed from the ancient Chinese meridian energy system - it is a form of emotional acupuncture without the needles, and is based on the premise that all negative emotions are the result of a disruption in the body’s energy system.
EFT works by clearing the blockage or disruption by tapping on the end points of the body’s energy meridians (while thinking of a specific issue) which sends pulses of energy to rebalance the body’s energy system in relation to that thought/specific issue. Shifting energy changes the way the brain processes information about a particular issue, and so tapping while tuned in to the issue is like rewiring or rerouting the brain's conditioned negative response. You can imagine how liberating this is if you or someone you know has suffered from a phobia, or traumatic memories. EFT also works in the same way to release the limiting thoughts and beliefs that get in the way of your success, happiness, health and inner peace.
"It WORKED!!! Didnt really think it would but went up and down lifts dozens of times, and flew at the back of 5 internal flights! Thank you (on one flight the Chinese woman I was sitting next to was rubbing the same spots)." Sandra Patterson
The Energy Psychology Breakthrough
Developed by Gary Craig, in the USA, EFT is the leading technique of the new treatments referred to as Energy Psychology. The success of these treatments with a wide range of emotional and physical issues are creating breakthrough understandings about the nature of healing and personal change. It really seems that if we view the body as a dynamic "energy configuration", where thoughts, emotions and memories are entwined in an information feedback system with our subjective and physical experience - (and can be influenced by energetic interventions such as meridian stimulation), remarkable results follow.
Note: While EFT seems to have supported remarkable changes in many emotional and physical issues to date, it should not be used instead of appropriate medical care. You should always consult your doctor before using any form of self-treatment.
