Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)- Tapping


Emotional freedom technique (EFT), which people often refer to as EFT tapping, is an alternative therapy for anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and some other conditions.

According to the developer of EFT, Gary Craig, tapping (acupressure) on different parts of the body helps balance energy and reduce physical and emotional pain. People can see an EFT practitioner for treatment or treat themselves using this technique.

As with   acupuncture    and acupressure, tapping involves the body's energy meridian points, which are a concept in Chinese medicine. Proponents believe them to be areas of the body through which energy flows.

In this theory, blocks or imbalances in the flow of energy lead to ill health. According to EFT advocates, tapping on these meridian points with the fingertips restores the balance of energy to resolve physical and emotional issues.

According to   EFT International, the technique can be helpful for people with:

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • chronic pain

  • stress

  • weight loss issues

  • other problems
