Does EFT work?

Several recent studies suggest that EFT may be effective for some conditions, such as anxiety and PTSD .

However, the research to date is limited, and some of the studies are very small. One criticism is that some of the earlier studies have flaws in their scientific methods, which can make the results unreliable.

Therefore, more research is necessary before researchers can draw definitive conclusions on the effectiveness of EFT.

What is EFT

Emotional freedom technique (EFT), also known as EFT tapping, is an alternative therapy for anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and some other conditions.

Tapping on different parts of the body, primarily on the head and in the face, helps balance energy and reduce physical and emotional pain.

How does EFT work?

Practising EFT you tap on certain points of your head and face to unblock energy flows. According to EFT advocates, tapping on these meridian points with the fingertips restores the balance of energy to resolve physical and emotional issues.

As with acupuncture and acupressure, tapping involves the body’s energy meridian points, which are a concept in Chinese medicine.

It can also work in a similar way to mindfulness, as it can draw a person’s attention to their body and breathing. It may serve as a mental distraction from the issues that are causing anxiety or stress.

Understanding Stress
  • Dealing with stress is imperative as it is unavoidable in modern life.
  • Our work, family and our finances create daily stress and other external factors (like politics and terrorism) contribute to our stress levels.
  • A little bit of stress is good for you, and even make you stronger, as long as you don't let it rule your life.
  • The power of belief is actively at work with stress, which can harm you if you believe that it can.
