Questions about EFT


What is EFT? EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and is considered a brief psychological strategy that combines a cognitive and somatic element. EFT uses the physical somatic activity of tapping with two fingers on acupressure points on the face and body, while stating the psychological problem out loud (cognition). Hence it is often called ‘tapping’.

Here is a Video of Dr Peta showing you How to use EFT

How soon can I use EFT on my own? Use it on your own as soon as you understand the concept: Identify the problem/discomfort (unwanted feeling), Rate it 0-10 (10 being the highest level of that feeling that you can imagine), Setup by saying the feeling or problem out loud with an acceptance statement at the end (3 times), Tap the points with a brief reminder phrase of the uncomfortable feeling, Re-rate the feeling and Repeat the tapping until the feeling is 1 or 0. There’s no need to delay using the technique. However, always know you can seek the assistance and support of professional practitioners too.

What is the Research and Evidence? EFT has been found to be an “evidence-based” practice for anxiety, depression, phobias and PTSD when measured against the standards of the American Psychological Association’s Division 12 Task Force on Empirically Validated Treatments. EFT is also currently under review with the American National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) for effectiveness.
