About Tapping - EFT

What is Tapping - EFT and how does it work?

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, also called Tapping.

Gary Craig, Founder of EFT, answers the question: "How does EFT work?" by instructing us to think of our bodies as energy. He states in The EFT Discovery Statement: “The cause of all negative emotion and physical pain is a disruption in the body’s energy system

The acupuncture meridians (discovered by the Chinese 5,000 years ago) act like energy circuits conducting currents of energy throughout our bodies. If these circuits are disrupted, emotional and/or physical discomfort is experienced.

Tapping - EFT uses light “tapping” with fingertips on certain points along the meridians to clear the disruption, allowing energy to flow freely. This process reduces or eliminates physical pain and negative emotion.

It is incredibly fast and effective, so much so that it’s hard to believe until you have experienced it for yourself!

Step One - Identify a Problem statement

"Even though (the problem), I deeply and completely love and accept myself."


You will physically “tap” lightly on 9 meridian points on the face and upper body while saying a “reminder phrase”. This helps keep your mind focused on “the problem” while allowing your energy system to return to normal at the same time. This allows your “problem” or “memory” to be neutralized and no longer disturb you or effect your life in negative ways.
