Does EFT work on______?

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™. As a result, it is likely outdated. It provides practical uses for EFT Tapping but you should also explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT, by reading our free e-book, The Unseen Therapist™, and/or get help from a Certified EFT Practitioner.

Does EFT work on________?

Note: This article is an important stage-setting companion to the next one which will be entitled....

How do I use EFT for __________?

....wherein we will explore the "how-to's" of applying EFT to the more difficult-to-budge cases.


Hi Everyone,

Experienced EFT'ers realize that EFT has potential use for just about every known physical and emotional ailment. This is not apparent to newcomers, however, and thus one of the most frequently asked questions about EFT takes the form....

Does EFT work on __________?

You can fill in the blank with almost any ailment. Examples have been....

Does EFT work on knee pain?
Does EFT work on snoring?
Does EFT work on Multiple Sclerosis?
Does EFT work on Reactive Attachment Disorder?
Does EFT work on animals?
Does EFT work on pre-verbal children?
Does EFT work on Alzheimer's Disease?
Does EFT work on Ritual Abuse?
And so on...with a list of thousands of ailments.

The answer to all these questions is...

Yes! There is a high likelihood that, properly applied, EFT will either improve or completely eliminate the problem.

That does NOT mean, however, that EFT has been perfected to the point where it can relieve everything. On the contrary, we still have a lot learn about its uses...AND...sometimes the results will depend on your "EFT sophistication."

It DOES mean that we have seen improvements in such a wide variety of ailments that it is no stretch to conclude that its uses are nearly universal....although not yet perfect across the board.

This One-Procedure-Fits-All feature of EFT brings quizzical looks to the faces of most newcomers because they have been conditioned to think that, for each ailment, there is a specific remedy.

Thus we take Tylenol for a headache and Prozac for depression. Along the same lines, there are specific medications (remedies) for everything from arthritis to high blood pressure to Anxiety to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. There is even competition among advertisers for which remedy is the best for a specific ailment (Tylenol vs. Advil, for example).

Soooo, newcomers become confused when they hear that the same EFT Basic Recipe that is used for back pain is also used for grief, trauma, anger, carpal tunnel and everything else. This notion doesn't fit with their previous conditioning.

Nonetheless, that's how it is.

One point of clarification: While the same mechanical Basic Recipe is used for all ailments, the APPROACHES to the various problems can differ widely. There is an "art of delivery" which is necessary for complicated cases and this involves finding core issues and aspects as well as appropriate reframing and other artistic uses of this flexible tool.

This "art of delivery" is demonstrated profusely throughout our full-scale training videos as well as in numerous articles on our web site. Serious students can find useful approaches for almost any ailment by studying the large library of information contained within our materials.

This does not mean that you will find a precise approach for each and every ailment. For example, you won't find a step-by-step procedure for post-surgery-pain or for racial prejudice. Since there are thousands upon thousands of human ailments, providing such detail would be an impossible task.

Further, doing so is completely unnecessary.

This is because there are many useful approaches discussed within our tutorial and frequently asked questions, each of which will address a wide variety of issues--including post surgery pain, racial prejudice and just about everything else. The tools are there. It is up to you to apply them with creativity and skill. Study our materials. Become a serious student. Get experience. Stub your toe and try again. Develop your "art of delivery" and separate yourself from the pack. There are rich rewards for doing so.

Hugs to all, Gary

P.S. EFT is not meant as a substitute for other healing procedures (even though it often does the job by itself). Rather, you are encouraged to use EFT with the guidance of a qualified health professional.
