What is the Emotional Freedom Technique?
The Emotional Freedom Technique goes by a few different names:
• Energy Tapping
• Acupuncture without the needles
EFT is a safe and highly effective energetic healing technique that uses tapping with your fingertips along specific points, to stimulate and move energy through your body’s meridian system. EFT works by unlocking your body’s natural ability to heal and neutralize physical pain and emotional blocks.
It is widely accepted that illness, disease and pain can manifest in your body, due to unresolved negative emotions, such as fear, anger, anxiety, resentment, and chronic stress. When energy gets “stuck”, EFT helps by moving that energy through the meridian system, with tapping while tuning in to the source of the blockage, thus clearing the symptom.
Where did EFT originate?
This healing technique was created by Gary Craig, a Stanford-trained engineer who specialized in personal development.
According to Craig, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” He simplified a more complex protocol, Thought Field Therapy or TFT, created by Roger Callahan, in an effort to make the EFT process more streamlined and readily accessible.
What can EFT help with?
EFT can be used to help with a myriad of issues including:
• Weight Loss
• Autoimmune Disorders
• Food Cravings
• Chronic Pain
• Limiting Beliefs
• Emotional Blocks
• GI Disorders
• Headaches and Migraines
• And many more…
EFT has even been approved as a treatment for Veterans suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and has helped many Veterans significantly decrease or eliminate their PTSD symptoms.
Who uses EFT?
Many health and wellness practitioners use EFT as part of their holistic practices.
• Naturopathic Doctors

• Social Workers
• Mental Health Practitioners

You can even use this healing modality on yourself once you are taught the technique!
I like to incorporate EFT into my holistic health coaching practice with my clients, who need that extra boost to break through emotional or physical barriers.
Once we collapse and resolve the underlying emotional issue, my clients are better equipped to focus on their health and wellness goals with clarity and conviction, thus providing a clearer path to success.
With EFT, I help my clients overcome limiting beliefs, manage their weight, address chronic disease, as well as reduce their stress.
