Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from pain, diseases and emotional issues. Simply stated, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. Instead, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips. The process is easy to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It launches off the EFT Discovery Statement which says...
The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system.
And because our physical pains and diseases are so obviously connected with our emotions the following statement has also proven to be true...
Our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases.
EFT, along with numerous other emerging emotional healing techniques, are based on Thought Field Therapy, or TFT, a controversial psychological treatment developed by Dr. Roger Callahan. Its proponents say that it can heal of a variety of mental and physical ailments through specialized "tapping" with the fingers at meridian points on the upper body and hands.
Emotional healing therapies are a good way to kill fearful emotions. As Andrew Trinh of Trizle business journal put it:
Remembering traumatic experiences makes you vulnerable to future experiences, ensuring you’ll mess up repeatedly [in the] future.
