Emotional Freedom Technique - EFT


What is EFT?


EFT is relatively new to the UK having been developed in the US by  the creator of EFT Gary Craig from a technique called TFT (Thought Field Therapy) and has its roots in Applied Kinesiology. TFT was developed by Dr. Roger Callahan a US based psychiatrist now some 21 years ago. A visit to the EFTUniverse.com website is highly recommended.

I have been doing energy healing work for many years and my jaw still drops at the results.  EFT isn’t perfect of course. We do not get 100% all the time , however, it usually works well and the results are sometimes spectacular. It often works where nothing else will. We are still learning why EFT works so well. It centres on the profound effects of the body’s subtle energies using the theory that “the course of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”. Accordingly, EFT is an emotional form of acupuncture except that we do not use needles. Instead we tap with the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian energy points while the client is ‘tuned in’ to the problem.


There are 14 major meridians that form an interconnected circuit – 12 of these pass through the main organs of the body. Identical sets of meridians are found on each side of the body. The two remaining meridians control and modify the supply of energy within the entire circuit. The two end points of each meridian channel appear close to the surface of the skin. Spaced along each meridian there are key points which act as amplifiers or gateways. These are commonly

known as acupuncture or acupressure points. EFT uses the end points of each meridian.


The subtle energies that circulate throughout the body have been largely ignored (until recently) by western scientists. As a result our use of them for emotional and spiritual healing has been sparse at best. With EFT however, we consider these subtle energies to be the front running cause of the emotional issues. As a result we generate results that are FAR beyond those of conventional methods.



Compared to other techniques EFT is usually quite gentle, and substantial relief is often achieved with little or no pain. This is not true for everyone however. Some people’s issues are so intense that the mere mention of them causes emotional of physical pain. Although truly serious, instances of this (sometimes called abreactions) are most likely to occur in seriously emotionally damaged people (best estimate is less than 1% of the population).
