EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique

Rapid emotional relief to physical issues. Often works when nothing else will



Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of complementary therapy that uses tapping on acupuncture points while a patient focuses on a specific problem, negative emotion or traumatic memory. EFT - Tapping on the Karate Chop Spot The principle behind EFT is that negative emotions can cause disturbances in the body's energy field, and that these disturbances manifest physically in the body, for example, as headache, stomach ache, knee pain, or in the mind and body, as sadness, stress, shame, guilt and anxiety.

EFT theory derives from similar principles behind those of acupuncture and acupressure, in that, engaging with the bodies energy channels (or meridians) allows you to manipulate them and change your responses to them. It is proving to be one of the most remarkable health innovations in the last 100 years.

So much for theory; What can EFT do for me?
Emotional Freedom Techniques is a method of self help that allows you to take back control of your life, your body and your thoughts. EFT is efficient in dealing with stress related problems and helps in balancing the body’s energy system. EFT is painless in delivery and painless in usage, and produces realistic results, usually very quickly. It is a gentle and simple technique that allows you to become free of negative emotions and any associated physical problems.

There must be more to it than just tapping on meridian points? What else do I have to do?
You're right. The procedure does involve tapping on meridian points in a specific sequence, and this you can do yourself, with very little tuition. But the true art of EFT is in the delivery, and that involves a little discussion, before, during and after, because you need to know what to say when you are tapping, so that your mind is 'tuned into the problem'. It is not necessary for you to go into every traumatic detail, unless you want to, because EFT is adaptable enough find the source of the problem, even when you do not wish to exercise full disclosure. In my experience, this procedure is so effective that I quite believe EFT helps with virtually every physical and emotional problem you can think of, and even does so when other treatments, or procedures have failed. I think that's because EFT addresses the emotional aspects of an issue, and settles any emotional involvement, something that surgery and medications can't get a handle on.

If you are facing emotional or physical problems that seem to be non-responsive to other methods, why not give EFT a try? In the hands of an experienced practitioner, EFT is a powerful modality, that could well be the answer you've been looking for, be it for months or even years. It is painless and stres free, works on any age from young children to mature adults, it works on anybody, even non-believers and sceptics, and results can usually be seen/felt in minutes. There are no known side effects either, except the balancing of energy disruptions in your body and the releasing of negative emotions.

Phil is a Fully Certified Local EFT Practitioner What can you do to help me? Why should I listen to you? Because I've been doing this now for nearly 10 years, it's one of my favourite therapies, and I will continue to use EFT in practice every chance I get. See the appointments page for how to give this a try for yourself and your family.
Do I need to get into my stories? I keep them hidden behind a wall for a good reason! No. But I hope to bring you to a point where you can talk without pain, remember without tears, feel without fear and love again without guilt or shame. You owe this to yourself, your wife, your children, your family and your friends. Appointments and a treatment price list are available by clicking here. I look forward to welcoming you soon where we can talk about a treatment plan structured around your needs. Phil.


The concept of EFT is a simple one, and that is:
The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system
For most therapeutic approaches, this is just too simple an idea and so is often rejected out of hand. But note where it says, 'the cause'. It's not a symptom we're talking about, like headache, depression, flashbacks, intrusive memories; we're talking about the fault, the cause, which lies with the body's energy system. We're not looking to mask symptoms, but to discover the cause of those symptoms. All energy systems can be disrupted, spiked, grounded, suffer a blown fuse, or even reversed, and we're looking to rewire that body system, using EFT, so that the energy flows freely again.

What do you say to people who think EFT is a pseudoscience and is nothing more than placebo?
Ummmm - the only thing that comes to mind is - they've never tried it!
EFT - Tapping on the Chin Point
I've heard the argument that EFT is a placebo effect, a distraction from negative thoughts, and any therapeutic benefit comes from having someone actually listen, rather than from manipulation of any meridians. But more and more people are taking the plunge and giving EFT a try. Everyone that has come to The Haven Healing Centre has benefited from their use of EFT, that is EVERYONE!

Now compare that to the latest Clinical Evidence for conventional therapy by the British Medical Journal (BMJ), which states that 66% of treatments are either, unknown effectiveness, likely to be ineffective or harmful, unlikely to be beneficial, or a trade off between beneficial and harmful. Leaving 34% of treatments as beneficial, or likely to be beneficial.
So if EFT is only a placebo, but effective (it seems to me) in far, far more than 34% of cases, then I'll take the placebo every time, thanks.
