EFT Tapping

An effective and scientifically proven remedy for anxiety, depression and PTSD

Shift out of the stress response, ease your anxiety, and calm your mind with EFT Tapping

Years of conditioning and negative thinking keep us “stuck” in toxic relationships, jobs we hate, poor performance, unhealthy eating, and failure to take better care of ourselves. This can result in physical and emotional illness, disease, depression/anxiety/obsessive compulsive disorder, lack of confidence, poor self-esteem, weight gain and addictions.

EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique can help you free yourself from these stored anxieties, stresses, depression, and emotional hurts, and create positivity and energy in your life.

EFT Tapping is based on the scientific discovery that new neural connections can be formed in the brain. When we experience trauma or something that triggers a negative emotion, we create neural pathways that support re-triggering that negative emotion.

Conditions like phobias and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) exist because the brain creates a feedback loop that builds and enhances neural pathways.

Emotional Freedom Technique (or EFT) tapping is an intensely powerful tool that helps you to release your stored emotions by tapping along your body’s meridians in an acupressure type fashion while focusing your mind on the past hurt or current stress.

Scientifically Proven

Although initially dismissed as a non-evidence based ‘woo-woo’ therapy, recent studies have validated its efficacy.  In fact, EFT has now been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals. These include the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the American Psychological Association journals, Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training and Review of General Psychology.

EFT Tapping has been used for genocide victims in Rwanda and Bosnia, for disaster victims in Haiti and with U.S. soldiers returning with PTSD panic attacks from the battlefield.

According to a 2019 article published in the Journal of Evidenced-Based Integrative Medicine, “EFT is an evidence-based self-help therapeutic method and over 100 studies demonstrate its efficacy.”

How does EFT Tapping work?

Identify the issue

Name the specific problem or emotion that you want to target

Create a reminder phrase and rate the issue

Give the issue a title to help you stay focused, and rate the intensity on a scale of 1 to 10

Create an affirmation

Repeat the affirmation while you are tapping

Start the tapping sequence

Move your fingers over the 8 key meridian points while repeating the affirmation

Tune In Again

Re-rate the issue after you have completed the tapping sequence

Repeat the process

Continue until your intensity rating is lowered and you feel calm

Overcoming rape, trauma and childhood abuse memories

“As a young girl, I was raped twice! Those experiences left me traumatized, feeling powerless and fearful of the same thing happening again. To compensate, I flirted with men under the mistaken belief that this behavior would put me in control. Maggie helped me work through the events of my childhood, and the feelings of helplessness and blame that followed. I came to realize that as a girl, I had been brought up to believe that men were expected to abuse woman.Based on my experience with EFT, I now believe that no one has the right to hurt or abuse me.  Not surprisingly, my relationships with men, including my boss, have improved dramatically.”

FAQ

How does EFT Tapping work?

As with acupuncture and acupressure, tapping involves the body’s energy meridian points, which are a concept in Chinese medicine. These are areas of the body through which energy flows.

Blocks or imbalances in the flow of energy lead to ill health. When you tap on these meridian points with the fingertips you restore the balance of energy to resolve physical and emotional issues.

It can also work in a similar way to mindfulness, as EFT Tapping draws a person’s attention to their body and breathing. It serves as a mental distraction from the issues that are causing anxiety or stress.

What does EFT stand for?

Emotional Freedom Technique.

When and how did EFT begin?

EFT first began in the late 1990s when the founder, Gary Craig, created a popular website where he made EFT available to laypeople via low-cost videos. He had been a student of a psychologist, Dr. Roger Callahan, PhD who had patented his mind-body tapping process called Thought Field Therapy (TFT). Dr. Callahan in turn had studied and integrated the work of Dr. George Goodheart, DC and Dr. John Diamond, PhD, each of whom had discovered that verbally focusing on a problem or issue (emotional or physical) – while manually stimulating acupuncture points – could bring surprising relief in their patients – particularly with regard to fears, phobias and physical responses to stress. Craig was able to synthesize the process into a more simplified format involving fewer tapping points and with less complexity. A Stanford trained engineer and Master of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming), Craig added key NLP concepts, and called it EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques.

Latest scientific research on EFT treatments for PTSD and other emotional disorders

Many randomized controlled trials (RCT) of EFT have shown that it is extremely effective at treating PTSD. In one clinical trial, veterans’ symptoms dropped by 64%. A replication of that study found that 90% of veterans were free of clinical symptom levels after completing treatment and that they did not relapse later. EFT combines elements drawn from cognitive and exposure therapy but also includes fingertip tapping on acupuncture points.
