Emotional Freedom Technique—Healing Aid That Often Works When Nothing Else Will

Let’s say you’re a relatively healthy adult.

Imagine that late one evening as you’re getting ready for bed you experience a sharp pain piercing the deep muscles between your shoulders as you pull off your shirt or blouse. It causes you to catch your breath—and hold it –as you move. Lying in bed you can’t find a comfortable position so that going to sleep is difficult, and when you do the pain wakes you.

You could have several different reactions from dismissive to alternately puzzled, concerned, worried, annoyed or angry. You might immediately reach for the pain reliever and monitor its progress, wondering if (or worried that) you’re having a major physical episode when the pain doesn’t subside.

What to do next? “Gut” it out? Take something stronger? Wake someone up and have them massage your shoulders? Go to the emergency room?

If you’re Gary Craig, Dawson Church, Nick Ortner or someone who has studied Emotional Freedom Technique, your first response would be to tap different points on your hand, head, face, collarbone and side.

What is EFT?

EFT means "Emotional Freedom Techniques". It is also called "The Tapping Solution"or "EFT Tapping". It is a powerful self-health tool based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to illness and disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.

Once the distress is reduced or removed, energetic "interference" dissipates and allows the body to access natural healing processes that can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.

Dawson Church states on eftuniverse.com that EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including dozens of clinical trials, have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.
