EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a relatively new but fast evolving treatment that falls within the field of Energy Psychology and is practiced by energy healers, spiritualists, scientists, and anyone who has learned how to apply the technique on themselves.
Sometimes referred to as psychological acupressure, it works on the energy system by releasing blockages that may be the source of intense emotional discomfort and even pain. It is believed that blockages in the energy system can lead to behaviors, limiting beliefs, and an inability to live a harmonious life.
Emotional symptoms caused by blockages in the energy system include lack of self-esteem, feelings of anxiety, depression, or the development of addictive or compulsive behaviors. It has now also become widely accepted that emotional problems can cause physical disease and it is for this reason that therapists are using EFT extensively on physical issues such as chronic diseases, often with astounding results.
EFT is also becoming more and more accepted by the medical and psychiatric professions in addition to the energy healing and psychotherapy disciplines. Since its inception in the 1990’s by the founder of the technique, Gary Craig, thousands of people have found relief from all types of emotional and physical problems, sometimes after exhausting all other avenues of searching for a cure.
Because EFT is such a simple technique to learn, it can be used as a self-help tool providing individuals with astounding opportunities to achieving emotional and physical well-being, often in incredibly short periods of time. The technique awakens awareness and restores trust in the natural ability of the mind and body to heal itself. EFT does not discredit the psycho-therapeutic or medical professions, rather it contributes to a holistic healing process.
There are several EFT summits held all year round in certain parts of the world. Below are a couple that are hosted in the US.
