It is a very simple tapping procedure based on the Meridian Principles. Negative emotions cause imbalance in the subtle energies of the body. The imbalances manifest as physical and emotional problems. EFT balances the subtle energy that flows through these Meridians. These subtle energies are also the centrepiece of acupuncture, as a result EFT and acupunctures are cousins. Both disciplines are growing rapidly and, as time unfolds, they are destined to have a primary role in both emotional and physical healing

EFT shows how to give oneself instant relief from negative emotions. It combines the meridian systems of Eastern acupuncture and Western cognitive ideas . The therapy involves tapping energy points on the body, breathing techniques and specific eye movements to achieve its impressive results. It overcomes such feelings as heartache, loneliness, anger and fear – as well as more specific problems ranging from addictive urges to stage fright.

What Gary Craig, the founder of EFT , says about EFT

“EFT is a powerful new discovery that combines two well established sciences so you can benefit from both at the same time:

  1. Mind Body Medicine
  2. Acupuncture (this new version does not require needles–anyone can do it).

There is voluminous scientific evidence that each of these methods, applied by itself, can provide impressive relief.  But when you combine them both with EFT, a profound synergistic effect is possible.  I have observed this repeatedly since 1997 and have seen many stunning results. I believe it is this synergism that allows EFT to sometimes work where nothing else will.”


Here are ten amazing things about the process.

  1. EFT works for virtually any emotional issue – including jet lag, nasal congestion, hiccups, and Pre menstrual Syndrome.
  2. EFT works for essentially any issue of productivity or performance, from taking tests, to public speaking, to playing better golf.
  3. EFT is a do-it-yourself therapeutic tool. No therapist required.
  4. The process takes anywhere from fifteen seconds to fifteen minutes to administer. When you are done, in many cases the problem will be gone forever.
  5. EFT is totally portable. You can do it anywhere, without tools or equipment.
  6. You don’t have to talk about what is bothering you. Privacy is guaranteed.
  7. You don’t have to understand the cause, or source of the problem. EFT will work, even if you do not know why you feel the way you do.
  8. EFT processes are effective with children, even infants; and you can teach EFT to friends and colleagues.
  9. EFT is reliable and predictable. If you learn the techniques and practice them correctly, you will see the results.
  10. EFT has no negative side effects. No one has ever been harmed by these practices.
