EFT: Emotional Freedom Techniques
EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a universal healing tool, based on the body’s meridian system. It is easy to learn and the basic protocol takes only minutes to apply. EFT is also a serious healing modality with many aspects to master. EFT can be used alone or with a practitioner. You don’t have to believe in EFT or understand how it works in order to get results. Beginners and experts and folks in-between all have benefited from it.
EFT is based on the discovery statement by Gary Craig:
“The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
You can use EFT to address both physical and emotional issues. There is often an immediate shift in emotions, often felt like a relaxing or release. There is often an unbelievable shift in physical sensations.
As Gary Craig says,
“Our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases.”
You can use EFT to:
- Reduce stress and anger
- Shift your “hot buttons”
- Improve self-esteem
- Neutralize traumatic experiences Improve relationships
- Reduce and eliminate almost any physical pain
- Get rid of allergy-like sensitivities
- Address behavioral issues in children
- Untangle family systems issues
- Eliminate your limiting beliefs
- Create the life you want
EFT is sometimes referred to emotional acupuncture but without the needles. EFT consists of tapping a series of 8 to 10 points on the body while focusing on an issue that you want to release.
EFT was founded by Gary Craig, based partly on Roger Callahan’s work in Thought Field Therapy. Callahan discovered that by tapping on an meridian ending/beginning point, emotional phobias could be cured in minutes. He developed specific protocols to address a wide variety of issues. Gary Craig built on his work, developing an easy-to-use protocol that is easy to learn.
