Emotional Freedom Techniques
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a process that was originally designed to reduce the psychotherapy process from months and years down to minutes and hours. In practice, astonishing physical healings also occurred when the techniques were used. Symptoms ranging from Migraine Headaches to Cancer faded away in the course of treatment.

EFT often works where nothing else will. EFT was based on a technique developed in the late 1980s by Dr. Roger Callahan, a clinical psychologist and the founder and developer of Callahan Techniques® Thought Field Therapy. He calls the technique TTF: Thought Field Therapy. Around 1995, Gary Craig – an early student of Dr. Callahan’s and a certified Master Practitioner – simplified the procedures into a form that anyone could use. He called it EFT, short for Emotional Freedom Techniques. Based on neuro-linguistic programming principles, Emotional Freedom Techniques are among the most widely used forms of energy psychology. EFT has proven to be a very powerful and effective way of dealing with emotional problems and issues.
Gary Craig stopped his work with EFT 2010 however the work is carried on by other very talented people.
How Does EFT Work?
Gary Craig described EFT this way: “It’s an emotional form of acupuncture except that we don’t use needles. Instead, we tap with the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian points while the client is ‘tuned in’ to the problem. The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” Accordingly, EFT is an ’emotional’ form of acupuncture, except that no needles are used; instead you tap the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian energy points.
“Powerful changes take place even during the first session. Traditional therapy normally lasts months or years and can cost thousands of dollars, but EFT allows you to achieve lasting results within two to five sessions.
EFT is one of a growing number of energy/meridian therapies. While we’re not yet certain of exactly how these therapies work, the remarkable thing about them is that they work very well, and seem to do so primarily by centering on the profound effects of the subtle energies of the body to create remarkable healing effects. The EFT success rate is 80% or higher for numerous problems, something no other form of therapy can claim. As Gary said, “EFT often works when nothing else will.” Scientific research is still in progress, but current theory maintains that when negative emotion causes an imbalance in the body’s energy system, focused tapping can restore the balance.
