Self-Help Technique Often Treats Insomnia Better Than Drugs -- Acts Quickly and Has No Side Effects

PRESS RELEASE: San Francisco, CA (PRWEB)--A new, easy to use, drug free technique introduced by Stanford Engineer Gary Craig can now help the nearly 60 percent of America's adults who report trouble sleeping. Chronic sleep disruption can affect learning skills, memory, stamina, health, and safety -- and it's the single most important trigger for depression. Insomnia goes hand in hand with irritability, headaches, and muscle pain. Job injury rates increase 400 percent in sleep-deprived workers, and 16 percent of absenteeism at work can be linked to insomnia.

One of the most successful treatments for insomnia is acupuncture, which uses needles to release energy blocks that, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, interfere with the body's ability to relax and rest.

But Craig's do-it-yourself technique appears to work just as well, and no needles are necessary. Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, combines gentle fingertip tapping on key acupuncture points with focused thought to address insomnia's underlying causes.

"All of the discoveries of modern physics, from Einstein on, support the ancient theory that a universal energy flows through everything in nature," says Craig. "This energy, called Qi or Chi, flows through the body along paths called meridians. Anything that stimulates points along these meridians helps the energy flow freely. Acupuncture uses needles, acupressure uses massage, and EFT uses fingertip tapping. By combining the tapping with focused thought, you can release energy blocks that interfere with a good night's sleep. In clinical cases, EFT has helped people fall asleep and stay asleep, even in times of stress and adversity."

EFT has become known as a Universal Healing Aid because it provides relief not only for insomnia but also for trauma, phobias, grief, anger, depression and pain management.

Because it's new, EFT is not yet familiar to most doctors and patients. However, an estimated 1 million have downloaded Craig's free training manual (it gives you all the basics so you can use it immediately).

Another 5,000 to 10,000 download it each month. Craig's free online newsletter started with 20 subscribers in 1997 and has spread by word of mouth to 400,000.

There are EFT practitioners in most countries, and the EFT website is now the sixth most actively visited natural health site in the world.
