What is EFT and How Does it Work?
EFT is the science of tapping on energy pathways or meridians - like acupuncture without the puncture - to free blocked energy, simultaneously using self-help positive statements, arrived at by the client. This quote sums it up for me - "With remarkable consistency, EFT relieves symptoms by an unusual (but scientific) routine of tapping with the fingertips on specific points on the energy meridians which neutralises disruptions in your body's electrical system."
It is said that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy systems so, as the tapping works on the physical body, it also works on the emotions. The positive statements bring about psychological benefits and a Mind/Body healing will often result.
Such beneficial changes in thinking patterns, together with the re-alignment of the physical energetic state, is what makes EFT a powerful and successful complementary therapy tool that helps the body to heal itself.

This amazing therapy, of tapping on the energy points of the body whilst using statements and affirmations to aid the mind/body healing, is having great success worldwide.
Sessions can be conducted on the telephone but you will need to ensure your privacy at the time of the call, and become familiar beforehand with the tapping sequence so that you can self-tap during the session.

The History of EFT
EFT has had a very long journey to become what it is today.
2,000 to 4,000 years ago, ancient Chinese medicine understood worked with the electrical nature of the human body. Acupuncture (for purely physical issues) was created from Chinese medicine, working with the body's energy pathways, or meridians.
1962 - George Goodheart developed a muscle-testing therapy, known as Applied Kinesiology, to test the body for what may be negatively affecting it.
1970's - John Diamond, MD, Australian psychiatrist, developed Behavioural Kinesiology , which used positive self-
statements with Kinesiology, to treat specific emotional problems and thinking patterns.
Early 1980's - Dr. Roger Callahan, American psychologist and specialist in anxiety disorders, developed tapping on acupoints to treat specific psychological problems, which led to Thought Field Therapy or TFT, requiring muscle testing and many tapping points.
1987 - psychologist Dr Patricia Carrington developed a version of TFT called Acutap. She would later move on to EFT.
Gary Craig, a Stanford trained engineer, personal performance coach and former student of TFT, developed Emotional Freedom Techniques - EFT - from TFT. A shorter tapping method, without muscle testing, it proved as effective as TFT and Craig has taught EFT since the 1990's.
In 2000, Dr Carrington added to EFT with a variation called EFT Choices Method.
A revolution in psychology, from ancient Chinese medicine, through acupuncture, EFT is now giving back an exciting new therapy to the area of its origins.
