(appeared in Alternatives magazine--November 1998)
I have suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome for about 8 years. After extensive chiropractic and physical therapy treatment, I thought I was as healed as I was going to be without surgery. Even though I felt better in general, the chronic pain still wore me down occasionally. In 1997 I was introduced to Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). After being guided through a tapping sequence for about 10 minutes, I had absolutely no pain! I couldn't believe it! I kept mentally searching throughout my body for the pain. It just wasn't there! I had actually taken a few minutes to tap on the corner of my eye, my hand and other simple, easy to reach places on my body and had shed this pain with which I thought I was destined to live! Then I tried it on a grief issue I had been carrying around since 1989. Within minutes, I felt the weight lift from me. I have been able to remember my sister fondly and nostalgically but with no pain of grief ever since!
After reading this paragraph, close your eyes for a moment. Breathe deeply, slowly and thoroughly. Imagine releasing yourself from any anxiety, paranoia, addictive urge or chronic pain that is a struggle for you.
Emotional Freedom Technique is a healing technique that has become a powerful tool for relief from emotional and physical pain. It is based on a revolutionary use of tapping along the body's meridians: a basis of medical treatment in eastern cultures for centuries. The wonder of EFT is that it is simple, gentle, and quick. Anyone can relieve or heal themselves of many emotional and physical problems in minutes.
EFT is based on the concept that by gently tapping on their body's meridian points, a person can find the emotional release they seek. An electrical circuit runs through our bodies and sends messages to the brain to control all of our functions, both physical and emotional. The meridians are the energy centers along this circuit. These centers are found in places like your hand and face. (Many resources are available that discuss meridians, chakras and our body energy systems.) All negative emotions in our bodies cause disruptions in our energy flow at these meridian centers. The body then becomes unbalanced, and the emotional issues cause the body both emotional and physical stress. By tapping along the energy meridians, the balance is restored and negative energy charges no longer are attached to the emotion or physical issue we treat. Once a person is balanced, they no longer become upset when faced with the same situation that bothered them prior to treatment. The memory remains but the negative charge associated with it is gone. With some issues the result is permanent, with others, the tapping process has to be repeated.
Gary Craig, an engineer whose therapy training includes NeuroLinguistic Programming and Thought Field Therapy (™), developed EFT. His research and training led him to develop one sequence of places for a person to tap on their body to achieve relief for many different issues. This is how it works: a person 1) brings an issue (physical or emotional) to mind 2) taps with his/her fingertips on particular meridian points a certain number of times. After one or several cycles of tapping (depending on the issue and severity) the person will find great, if not total, release from the issue.
Sounds amazing? Sounds unbelievable? Well, it is! In fact, data is coming in to show up to an 80% success rate! Therapists in many helping professions are using it successfully with clients who have been suffering from emotional issues for prolonged amounts of time. Private individuals are being trained to use this technique themselves.
Emotional issues treated with EFT include: trauma, phobias, addictions, anxiety, anger, grief, compulsiveness, PTSD, peak performance. Positive results have been achieved with chronic pain, arthritis, ADD/HD, headaches, asthma and other physical problems. The EFT web site (www.emofree.com) contains dozens of success stories about EFT.
This is an exciting, cutting edge therapy. If it sounds a bit 'out there' to you, well, you are right. It is 'out there'. It is very foreign to our western way of thinking and problem solving. But it works!
