Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of acupressure. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. The process involves focusing on a specific issue or fear while going through the process of tapping on certain acupuncture points. Because EFT is non-invasive, it is something that can easily be taught to acupuncture patients for home care between treatments. As EFT is designed to be performed on oneself, it is also a valuable self-care technique for healthcare practitioners.
There are over 100 studies demonstrating that EFT Tapping is effective. Whether it’s physical challenges like pain or autoimmune diseases, or mental challenges like anxiety and depression, EFT has a proven track record of success. EFT is used in the Veterans Administration, while the non-profit Veterans Stress Project has treated over 21,000 veterans with PTSD.
