DISCLAIMER

Emotional Freedom Technique is a meridian therapy based on the ancient principles of acupuncture and applied kinesiology. EFT is a simple tapping procedure that gently realigns the body’s energy system. Unlike other energy healing modalities, EFT incorporates an emotional element to the healing process, addressing unresolved emotional issues as a likely cause of physical disease, psychological dysfunction and personal limitations.

EFT is a form of energy psychology that utilizes the natural flow of energy in the body. Based on the same theory of energy as acupuncture and acupressure, EFT can be considered "acutapping" as clients learn to quickly and effectively promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing by tapping on certain points ("meridians") on the body.

Emotional Freedom Technique is like acupuncture for the mind and emotions only without the needles. It uses the meridians which are energy points around the body to balance the emotional energy and for a reason that is not completely clear, it works on many physical symptoms and problems as well. I have used this with my clients for over ten years and found it to work around 95% of the time to clear the emotional blockages the Client requested to heal.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of Intervention (counseling)|counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy. It is best known through Gary Craig's EFT Handbook, published in the late 1990s, and related books and workshops by a variety of teachers. During a typical EFT session, the person will focus on a specific issue while tapping on "acupuncture point|end points of the body's energy meridians". Practitioners claim that they can use the technique to treat a wide variety of physical and psychological disorders, and that it may also be used as a simple form of self administered therapy.*The available evidence from studies done on EFT have shown that while there may be small effects from use of this technique, they are likely due to well recognized conventional psychological techniques often used with the tapping, rather than the purported "energy" mechanisms. This technique is generally characterized as pseudoscience and has not garnered significant support in clinical psychology.

Process

According to the EFT manual, the procedure consists of the participant rating the emotional intensity of their reaction on a Subjective Units of Distress Scale (SUDS) (a Likert scale for subjective measures of distress, calibrated 0-10) then repeating an orienting Affirmations (New Age)|affirmation while rubbing or tapping specific points on the body. Some practitioners incorporate eye movements or other tasks. The emotional intensity is then rescored and repeated until no changes are noted in the emotional intensity.*

Research

A 2009 review found "methodological flaws" in some research studies that had reported "small successes" for EFT and the related Tapas Acupressure Technique. The review concluded that positive results may be "attributable to well-known cognitive and behavioral techniques that are included with the energy manipulation. Psychologists and researchers should be wary of using such techniques, and make efforts to inform the public about the ill effects of therapies that advertise miraculous claims."*

Reception

An article in the Skeptical Inquirer argued that there is no plausible mechanism to explain how the specifics of EFT could add to its effectiveness, and they have been described as Falsifiability|unfalsifiable and therefore Pseudoscience|pseudoscientific.* Evidence has not been found for the existence of meridian (Chinese medicine)|meridians or other concepts involved in traditional Chinese medicine.*A Delphi method|Delphi poll of an expert panel of psychologists rated EFT on a scale describing how discredited EFT has been in the field of psychology. On average, this panel found EFT had a score of 3.8 on a scale from 1.0 to 5.0, with 3.0 meaning "possibly discredited" and a 4.0 meaning "probably discredited."* A book examining pseudoscientific practices in psychology characterized EFT as one of a number of "fringe psychotherapeutic practices,"* and a psychiatry handbook states EFT has "all the hallmarks of pseudoscience."*EFT, along with its predecessor, Thought Field Therapy, has been dismissed with warnings to avoid their use by publications such as the The Skeptic's Dictionary* and Quackwatch.*
