What is EFT?
EFT is a simple to learn, easy to use tool to aid resolution of emotional disturbances and allow a person to move from a state of stress to a state of relaxation. This shift frequently allows the physical healing mechanisms of the body to work more effectively so that physical symptoms may resolve along with emotional conflicts.
EFT is not faith healing, a placebo effect or magic. You do not even have to believe in it for it to be effective. Many sceptics change their minds once they see it at work in a real situation or experience the effects for themselves.
EFT is a real procedure which benefits many people. Scientific studies are underway to clarify how this healing effect may work. Though it is still an experimental procedure it has proved to be so effective that many professionals in the fields of psychotherapy, counselling and medicine as well as complementary therapy have begun to use it to supplement and expand their work. Many more are becoming interested as EFT becomes more widely known.

Basic EFT Tapping Points
Where did EFT come from?
EFT as we know it today began with the pioneering work done by Gary Craig in the late 1990’s. Since then Gary Craig and other contributors have gone on to develop and refine the technique so that it has become easier to use, more elegant and even more powerful. Some of the resolutions produced are remarkable and can change people`s lives for the better.

How does EFT work?
It is the subject of much speculation why pain and physical problems respond to EFT in the same way as emotional problems. The answers are being slowly found as science begins to catch up with what we are actually doing when working with energy therapies and some of the mechanisms are already well-documented. Other areas are still obscure but it is already crystal clear that a high percentage of physical problems have their origins in emotional disturbances. Resolve these and the physical manifestation then heals itself.

What can be treated using EFT?
Some of these are listed below.
Are there any side-effects?
EFT is very gentle and rarely has any side effects. It is often combined with or used instead of other procedures, because of its gentle nature. In our experience, people often feel energised after an EFT session. The only other side effects are good ones, where treating one problem will cause another problem to heal, spontaneously.
How long do the results last?
How long does it take me to heal?
Usually a person with even the most deeply seated problems to start seeing real benefits within (at worst) a few weeks, and some people (at best) within a few minutes.
