Freedom Technique (EFT) is a meridian-based healing modality developed
by Gary Craig. EFT is based on the discovery that emotional
discomfort is associated
with a disturbance in our energy system. Traumatic events throughout our life,
as well as verbal conditioning from family, teachers, other people
and many unknown factors, are stored as energetic disruptions
in the body's energy system.
EFT balances the energy system by very gentle tapping with the fingertips on
specific meridian endpoints on the face and body while tuning in to emotional
or physical pain. By tuning into our upsetting emotions, painful memories or limiting
thoughts while treating the energy system, the underlying disturbances are released,
balance and flow.
EFT is widely
appreciated in the field of Energy Psychology for being easy to learn
and to apply for self-help. It is a safe, efficient, non-invasive and
powerful tool to remove blockages to health and well-being.
EFT has been used successfully to treat a wide range of emotional
problems and issues as well as physical problems. It can help with:
• phobias, anxiety and fears
• emotional trauma from painful experiences, physical abuse
• eating disorders
• sports and other performance
Perhaps the most exciting thing about EFT is that anyone can learn this approach
and use it to help themselves. While some problems require persistence with
the technique over a period of time, and some will require the intervention
skilled therapist, many people can learn EFT and apply it successfully
to the general problems and stresses of living.
Asked Questions & Answers about EFT
• How long do the results last?
EFT is generally long lasting. Physical healings are often impressive
and long lasting as well, but are more likely to re-emerge than emotional
issues. Often a physical ailment (headache, backache, stomach upset,
etc.) acts as a physical manifestation of an emotional issue. Thus what
appears to “come back” is usually the same physical ailment
reacting to a different emotional issue.
EFT be combined with other techniques?
Yes. EFT is very flexible. Many people blend EFT with other healing
techniques and report enhanced results.
• Are there any negative side effects?
By comparison to almost any other process, EFT is quite gentle and
rarely has any side effects
