This technique was created by Gary Craig, who studied TFT under Dr. Callahan. EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE is based on the meridian system, comparative to acupuncture without the use of needles. The process is used to release negative emotional energy stored in the nervous system. It is used in the treatment of trauma, PTSD, phobias, grief, anger, guilt, anxiety, etc.
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. It often works in minutes, its results are usually long lasting, and side effects are almost always positive.
EFT is versatile and has been used confidently by hundreds of therapists on thousands of clients with successes on even the most difficult problems, by relieving imbalances in their clients’ energy systems. Phillip and Jane Mountrose have been using it personally and with clients and class participants for over 5 years, with consistent success.
How EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques Works?
EFT is a very effective yet gentle method of directly balancing the body’s energy system for the feelings that you want to change. It’s a bit like clearing a log that’s blocking a stream where the log represents a stuck emotion in your stream of energy. You don’t have to believe in the theory though, just as you don’t need to know how a car works under the bonnet to drive one. Some people do like to find out more about the theory, while others are happy simply to have their problem resolved.
THE FOUR BASIC STEPS IN EFT
|EFT Step||What’s Involved in Each Step||Time Taken|
|The Setup||Massage a tender area of lymph nodes in your upper chest and repeat a specially-worded statement of your problem.||10 sec|
|Tap with the pads of your fingers on a series of acupressure points to stimulate energy flow through the meridian system.||20 sec|
|9-Gamut Procedure||Tap one acupressure point on the back of your hand; do 9 brain-connecting actions with eye movements, humming and words.||10 sec|
|Again, tap with pads of your fingers on the same acupressure points to stimulate energy flow through the meridian system.||20 sec|
Total EFT Treatment Time = about 60 seconds
EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem – whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. — and voice positive affirmations.
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.
