Emotional Freedom TechniquesTM

A Universal Healing Aid


Emotional Freedom Techniques - EFT is a compilation of western science blended with the ancient art of acupuncture. In simplest terms, EFT is an emotional form of acupuncture, except we don’t use needles. Instead we tap with the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian points while the person is focussed on the problem.




The short answer is: exceptionally well! EFT works by removing the negative emotional component from a memory, event, circumstance or situation. All negative emotions are a disruption in the body’s energy circuits. Learning and using this technique removes distress within your body. Doing so can have a profound and pleasant effect on attitude, perception, relationships, sport performance and yes, even health.




Most people are familiar with acupuncture and/or acupressure techniques. EFT is a form of emotional acupuncture. Dr Roger Callahan, a clinical psychologist, is credited with the pioneer work which led to the following. Tapping with a finger on specific acupuncture points while focussing one’s attention on a problem removes the emotional component. Dr. Callahan’s work came to the public’s attention under the name “Thought Field Therapy”. It was also referred to as the “Callahan Technique”. Although it’s value as a therapeutic tool was immediately apparent, many people found the training complex, time consuming and expensive. One of Dr. Callahan’s early students, Gary Graig, decided to explore the possibilities of simplifying the procedure. Having an engineering background, Gary’s mind set was to streamline the procedure, yet still retain the excellent results achieved by the original. From this EFT was born.


If you think of a negative emotion as a “fuse blower”, and the brain/body’s ability to cope is now compromised, the application of EFT resets the circuit breaker, or repairs the blown fuse. Once this is done, one can begin to think more resourcefully and effectively again.


Please remember, 80% of all psychotherapeutic interventions are about resolving the negative emotional component.

Please remember that whatever you decide to use EFT on, EFT is a tool or technique whose power and efficiency is in removing the emotional aspect of the problem. It does not replace the need and value in seeking professional help from various medical professionals or specialists. For those interested and curious about the role played by emotions in relation to health, we refer to the vast amount of literature available on this subject. A wonderful place to start is with Molecules of Emotions by Dr. Candace Pert.
