EFT


EFT, originally developed by American therapist Gary Craig, is an ‘energy psychology’. It is based on the principles of acupuncture and the Eastern view of the body as having a flow of energy, or chi. When we have bad experiences or traumas, the energy flow is disrupted in the system.

We tap on specific parts of the body pairing with carefully crafted phases relevant to the condition we want to change. In doing so we gradually restore the negative disruption in the bodies engery system.

Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.

Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.
