Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT): Tap Your Way To Health


Learn the basics of EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique and deal with the emotional strain of going through cancer or providing care to someone with cancer.

What is Emotional Freedom Technique

  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a powerful new method based on the discovery that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease.
  • When we go through traumatic experiences, the memories associated with these experiences often trigger the same emotions that we felt during the time of the experience.
  • The use of EFT significantly reduces the emotional triggers and often we are able to see the same situation more objectively and move on.
  • Since the stress of the trauma is reduced, there is a direct impact on our emotional health and therefore our physical health.

How it works

  • EFT works by tapping certain acupuncture points while focusing on an issue that has caused the person emotional distress.
  • These points help to balance the body’s energy field since we tap on its energy meridians.
  • The principles behind EFT are similar to Chinese acupuncture as they enable the internal healing mechanisms of the body – allowing the body to heal itself.

How to learn and use EFT

What is EFT?


  1. I find it rather interesting that another way to heal oneself from emotional trauma is through performing the emotional freedom technique (EFT). My friend just got her leg cut off due to an accident and she does not know how to deal with it. Knowing this, I will be sure to find a clinic that practices this technique so that I would be able to help her heal and get rid of her mental stigma against her leg.
