EFT: A profound, rapid self-applied tool that puts us back in control of our lives
Do you want to experience a life of peace, calm and passion? Do you want to learn a tool that can help you reach this place on a daily basis? One that can dissolve present moment stress often in a matter of minutes, or when used more artfully can reach the roots of our biggest challenges.
Imagine what you could do with such a tool, and who you would be.
It is well known that high levels of stress block our ability to think clearly, make the right decisions.
We are all familiar with the experience of being completely different people when we are calm and happy compared to when we are stressed. We make better decisions. We are nicer to be with. We are more creative, generous. We are inspired and new creative ideas come to us readily.
By having a tool right at the end of your fingertips to tackle our stress levels at any time of day is a big deal. The difference this can make to your life and those around you is huge!
We are also aware that certain things like comments from others, or even our own thoughts or feelings trigger us into those stress states (as well as into other emotional states such as anger, sadness, self-hate, fear, paralysis).
Know that each of the triggers has an origin and by working with those origins with EFT restores peace and safety to the part of us that set up the “programme” long ago. This means we no longer get triggered and get “taken away” from ourselves, as the happier we are the more authentically ourselves we are.

How Effective is EFT?
As a trainer and practitioner I am always amazed at how effective this method can be. I have seen major trauma dissolve within a session. I have seen chronic fatigue disappear in 3 sessions (and in one case 20 minutes)! I have seen core beliefs disappear in minutes. I have seen depression lift in just a few sessions. It is a joy to see smiles returning to the faces of my clients. And ALL the time I am seeing general stress and anxiety turn to relief and calm usually within a few minutes (although it typically takes a number of sessions to work with the issues that drive it).
Research in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease showed that a single session of EFT resulted in a cortisol (stress hormone) reduction of 24% compared with an average of 14% who were in the talk therapy or “wait” groups.
Not only that, a paper published in the Review of General Psychology suggested EFT was amongst the most potent and precise therapies for influencing gene expression – the key factor in the growing field of Epigenetics. For instance, a one-hour EFT psychotherapy session found that EFT was associated with the regulation of 72 genes, including those involved in learning and memory, regeneration of neural white matter, enhanced synaptic connectivity, neuronal survival after DNA damage, tumor suppression, insulin regulation, heightened immunity, inflammation, and antiviral activity.
What Else Can You Tell me About EFT?
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a simple, rapid, gentle and powerful tool to help you release limiting beliefs, negative emotions and upset, trauma and general stress. It can be used therapeutically and for deep transformational work, or used even whilst on the move to great effect. It can be self-administered in a simple but often very effective way, or be offered as a treatment modality by qualified practitioners.
The Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a group of powerful processes that can help just about anyone to achieve genuine freedom from the emotions that have created problems in their lives. These techniques have been described by some as one of the most important breakthroughs in the area of psychology in this century. They have been used successfully with thousands of people with a broad range of difficulties.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is becoming known to many amazed users as a modern miracle. It can dramatically relieve emotional disturbances along with many physical symptoms. Shifts are often experienced in minutes, its results are usually long lasting, and it is easy enough to learn for self-application to help in countless situations.
EFT is versatile and has been used confidently by hundreds of coaches and therapists on thousands of clients with successes on even the most difficult problems, by relieving imbalances in their clients' energy systems.
EFT is based on a revolutionary new discovery that violates most of the beliefs within conventional psychology. It contends that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system. With remarkable consistency, EFT relieves symptoms by an unusual (but scientific) routine of tapping with the fingertips on a short series of points on the body that correspond to acupuncture points on the energy meridians. Where there is an imbalance, there is a corresponding blockage in the flow of energy through the meridian system.
Stimulating the acu-points by tapping is believed to directly release the “survival threat” connection to past emotional memories stored in the part of the mid-brain known as the Amygdala. We are often running these past programs in the present moment even though these event are long gone, and are no longer relevant. Yet our thoughts and stimuli in our lives (such as words said to us in a certain way) continually and usually unconsciously takes us back to the feelings and emotions of traumas and upsets of the past. This makes us a slave to the past,
The tapping serves to release the blockages that are created when a person thinks about or becomes involved in an emotionally disturbing circumstance. When this blockage is released, the emotions come into balance. Once balanced, the person cannot get upset about the circumstance no matter how hard they try. The memory remains but the charge is gone. Typically, the result is lasting and the person's awareness usually changes in a positive way as a natural result of the healing.
Most energetic imbalances may be partially or completely relieved within a short time using this process. Others may be relieved through repetition of the process. Some examples of energetic patterns that have been successfully cleared using EFT:
* Fears related to performance like public speaking, concentration, sports, etc.
* Phobias like the fear of heights, flying, enclosed spaces, driving, etc.
* Emotional trauma from war experiences, physical abuse, etc.
* Disturbing emotions like depression and anger.
* Emotions related to addictive patterns like eating and smoking
* Emotions related to physical conditions.
EFT was developed earlier in the 1990's by Gary Craig, whose academic training includes a Stanford Engineering Degree. While personal healing has been his passion for over 30 years, Gary is neither a licensed therapist nor a trained psychologist. Many of the concepts underlying EFT came from Gary's training in Thought Field Therapy (TFT) under the tutorship of Dr. Roger Callahan. TFT involves the use of 10 or 15 individualized tapping routines. EFT differs in that it employs only one comprehensive tapping routine which is used for all emotional and physical problems. Because of this, it is easy enough to be mastered by most people.
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 - serious instances of trauma must be handled by qualified practitioners to avoid abreactions - a re-living of a trauma.
EFT is an emotional form of acupuncture--but without needles. EFT has also been referred to as a symptom management system; like conventional therapy with a body element, like massage therapy with an emotional element, like taking a pill with no side effects and conventional therapy without all the time and money involved.
EFT treatment involves tapping areas of the body with our fingertips to stimulate certain meridian points while the client is "tuned in" to the problem. The theory is the "cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system." The tapping stimulates the problem area and helps the bodies energy system to function properly.
The subtle energies of the body have been ignored by western scientists. Thus, emotional and spiritual healing has been sparse. With EFT results can be far beyond those of conventional methods.
EFT often provides relief of physical symptoms in the process of its use, which is unmistakable evidence of the link between physical ailments and emotional issues.
