A person is made up of energy. Any disruption of this energy field (or meridians) caused by trauma or distress will cause physical problems. Clean up the energy field and the problem will disappear.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a common sense approach. When used appropriately it does not create any side effects. There are no surgeries, needles, pills or chemicals being used.
The traditional therapeutic techniques have not been able to bring relief. PSTD in the military is an excellent example. EFT has been tested extensively with Vets and found to be a very effective. There is often no need to talk about painful experiences and in a very short period of time Vets have recovered the lives they thought were gone forever. How beautiful is that!
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has moved in the past two decades from a fringe therapy to widespread professional acceptance. This paper defines Clinical EFT, the method validated in many research studies and shows it to be an “evidence-based” practice. It describes standards by which therapies may be evaluated such as those of the American Psychological Association (APA) Division 12 Task Force, and reviews the studies showing that Clinical EFT meets these criteria. Several research domains are discussed, summarizing studies of: (a) psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); (b) physiological problems such as pain and autoimmune conditions; (c) professional and sports performance, and (d) the physiological mechanisms of action of Clinical EFT. The paper lists the conclusions that may be drawn from this body of evidence, which includes 23 randomized controlled trials and 17 within-subjects studies.The three essential ingredients of Clinical EFT are described: exposure, cognitive shift, and acupressure.

The three essential ingredients of Clinical EFT are described: exposure, cognitive shift, and acupressure. The latter is shown to be an essential ingredient in EFTs efficacy and not merely a placebo. New evidence from emerging fields such as epigenetics, neural plasticity, psychoneuroimmunology and evolutionary biology confirms the central link between emotion and physiology, and points to somatic stimulation as the element common to emerging psychotherapeutic methods. The paper outlines the next steps in EFT research, such as smartphone-based data gathering, large scale group therapy, and the use of biomarkers. It concludes that Clinical EFT is a stable and mature method with an extensive evidence base. These characteristics have led to growing acceptance in primary care settings as a safe, rapid, reliable, and effective treatment for both psychological and medical diagnoses.
