EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - is a type of energy therapy, based on the idea that the cause of emotional problems is a disturbance in the body's energy system. It is known as 'psychological acupressure', as it involves stimulating acupressure points by tapping on them with your fingers (no needles) to help release negative emotions.
EFT can be effective in overcoming problems such as phobias, addictions, anxiety, stress, anger, grief, relationship issues, weight issues, trauma and PTSD. In some cases physical conditions have been dramatically improved or resolved through the use of EFT.
One of the best things about EFT is that when you have learned the basic techniques, you can apply it as a self-help technique any time you need it. Many thousands of people throughout the world are using EFT on a daily basis to relieve stress, overcome emotional blocks, and achieve their goals.

There are forms of psychotherapy sweeping the world and they are grouped under the heading of Energy Psychology.
For thousands of years in TCM the emotions have always been accepted as part of the overall picture of a clients health problems.
Holistic Medicine in action.
It took the wisdom of an American Psychologist, Dr Roger Callahan to develop a psychological version of acupressure.
In the last 20 years from Dr Callahan's work there has developed a number of truly amazing therapies all incorporating the same premise that;
"The cause of all negative emotions
is a disruption in the body's energy system."
It seems it isn't our past memories that cause us stress and pain but the negative emotional energy charge that these memories stored in the acupuncture meridian/pathways. Until the pathways are cleared the memory will always cause stress to the mind and body.
So instead of trying to undo the thoughts or memories which has been attempted by millions in therapy for many years usually with highly unpredictable results, the energy based therapies directly intervene in the middle step, the disrupted energy flow.
Once the energy pathway has been cleared the person experiences no further pain or negative emotions from the original memory or thought.
5O% of people will experience rapid results in 15 to 20 minutes, a further 30 to 40% with a little extra help will respond in 40 to 60 minutes. Only a very small percentage do not receive any change at all and this is usually the result of the person not following through with the techniques, or very deep seated psychological trauma. However EFT can be used repeatedly, including a variation of "emotional spoken statements", to slowly dissolve underlying trauma.
Each session involves gently tapping a sequence of energy points on the upper body with the fingertips, which releases the negative emotional charge.
Nothing else is used and the client doesn't have to discuss the problem, as long as they are "inwardly focused on the problem", the tapping works.
It seems to be too good to be true and yet it only takes one session to experience the results.
It truly is the best self help technique for healing negative emotions.
Steven Wells, a Perth based psychologist says;
"The energy work is not a psychology technique
but it can give huge psychological results."
One of Dr Callahans students, Gary Craig developed a technique that everyone can learn to use easily and quickly. It doesn't require special diagnostic training or even any knowledge of the body's energy system.
Gary Cralg called his system; Emotional Freedom Techniques ( EFT )
