What is EFT?
EFT is an Accupressure Technique. EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy) combines focused thought with gentle fingertip tapping of key acupuncture points, a technique that clears energy blocks along the body’s meridians, the same energy paths mapped by Chinese physicians thousands of years ago. Tapping while concentrating on physical symptoms or past traumas can release both blocks and symptoms.
How does EFT Work?
EFT balances the body’s disrupted energy meridian system (Chi or Qi). Following EFT, the body’s stress response no longer manifests as pain or abnormal bodily responses or disease. EFT corrects that energy disruption and it’s accompanying physical and emotional symptoms. The energy system is restored to a balanced state where the body’s own self-healing ability is able to function.
“This approach sounds unusual to most Westerners,” says Los Angeles physician Eric Robins, MD, “but it makes perfect sense if you realize that everything in the body relates and responds to energy. When the energy flow in the body is blocked, then this predisposes to disease. And, the biggest cause of blocked energy is emotional issues, and how they are stored in and processed by the body. EFT does a remarkable job of clearing emotional issues at a deep enough level that a physiologic shift occurs, and physical healing results.”

History of EFT
EFT was developed by Gary Craig, a Stanford-trained engineer based on earlier work by Dr. R. Callahan. “We make no specific medical claims for EFT,” he explains, “but we agree with medical experts who say that by relieving past traumas and improving the body’s flow of energy, EFT can help most patients improve their health.” Thousands of people around the world have received documented health benefits the use of EFT techniques.
