I teach a process called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) / Tapping, also known as Meridian Tapping. EFT is a form of counseling intervention that draws various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). It is part of a group of therapies called “energy psychology” because the stress and the power of emotional healing are believed to affect the body’s electromagnetic energy fields.
Energy psychology is a clinical and self-help modality that combines verbal and physical procedures for effective therapeutic change. While utilizing established clinical methods such as exposure and cognitive restructuring, the approach also incorporates concepts and techniques from non-Western healing systems. Its most frequently utilized protocols combine the stimulation of acupuncture points (by tapping on, holding or massaging them) with the mental activation of a targeted psychological issue.
In a randomized controlled study released in February 2013, researchers examined the effects of EFT on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and psychological distress symptoms in veterans receiving mental health services. At the end of the 6-hour long EFT coaching sessions concurrent with standard care, the subjects had significantly reduced psychological distress and PTSD symptoms, and 90% of those treated with EFT no longer met PTSD clinical criteria. These results are consistent with that of other published reports showing EFT’s efficacy in treating PTSD and its long-term effects.

EFT is growing immensely. I first tried it personally when I was in my early twenties and I was hooked. It still works for me on anything from anxiety, fear, sabotage, self-esteem, food cravings, motivation and even chronic pain. Since then, I’ve helped almost a thousand clients learn EFT and it’s a favorite tool for the tool box!
