What is EFT? 
In Gary Craigís own words.... 
from www.emofree.com.

EFT is a Doorway to the new Healing High-Rise. It is where a growing number of newcomers to this exciting field get their start. We now have thousands of practitioners using EFT throughout the world.

We are still learning why EFT (and its many cousins) work so well. The existing theory is that "the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system." In simplest terms, EFT is an emotional form of acupuncture except that we don't use needles. Instead, we tap with the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian points while the client is "tuned in" to the problem.

To some newcomers, this may seem strange. To others, it hits the bullseye and represents a missing piece to the healing puzzle. The subtle energies that circulate throughout the body have been largely ignored (until recently) by western scientists. As a result, our use of them for emotional and spiritual healing has been sparse at best. With EFT, however, we consider these subtle energies to be the front running cause of emotional upsets. As a result, we generate results that are FAR beyond those of conventional methods. Even a cursory review of the case histories on this web site will reveal that.

Further, EFT often provides relief for a very wide range of physical symptoms. This, too, is abundantly clear in our case histories and provides unmistakable evidence of the link between our physical ailments and our unresolved emotional issues.

I hope this doesn't sound too grandiose, but I've been doing energy healing work since 1991 and my jaw still drops at the results. I've lost count of the number of phobias, traumatic memories, guilt, grief and physical ailments that have been elegantly relieved (often in minutes) by this procedure. Even though EFT violates just about every conventional belief out there, the results remain remarkable. EFT isn't perfect, of course. We don't get 100%. But it usually works well and the results are sometimes spectacular. It often works where nothing else will.

EFT is an exciting and revolutionary approach to rapid and lasting resolution of psychological and emotional disturbances.  By directly addressing the energy flows established by their thoughts, people are quickly able to end long standing overwhelming negative affect.  EFT helps end the suffering from trauma symptoms, PTSD.  grief, phobias, anger, fears and guilt.  It is also capable of dramatically relieving many physical symptoms such as pain, headache and asthma. It often does the job in minutes and its results are usually long -lasting.  It frequently provides relief  where other techniques fail. 

EFT is based on the theory  that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the bodyís energy system. 

By tapping with the fingertips on only one simple and easy to remember pattern of meridian points while tuning in to the problem, excess emotional distress can be discharged, liberating a personís  innate self-regulating and self-healing capacity. EFT eradicates fears, phobias, stuck emotions, compulsions, and addictions.  It offers clear and immediate evidence that by directly engaging the energetic elements of our mind/body continuum and giving relief to emotional problems, physical problems are often relieved as well. The link is unmistakable. At itís growing edge, EFT is being successfully used to help enhance athletic and creative performance in areas such as golf, tennis, and baseball. Itís very exciting and amazingly effective!!!  The procedure itself takes only a few minutes and because the work is with the energy system the responses are immediately experienced.  EFT is primarily a "tapping technique". That is, one focuses on a particular problem or issue, helped by precise use of language, and simultaneously taps on certain meridian points. We believe this works by stimulating the human energy system via the energy meridians, with the most obvious effect being upon the subject of ones focus. The advantage of this method is that it often works quite rapidly and the client does not need to talk about the trauma or even to say what type of incident is being resolved. 

I am  a psychotherapist and have been in private practice in Toronto for over 20 years. My own clinical experience with EFT has been that over 90 percent of my clients are, in a very short time, by their own report, cured of one or more of their presenting problems. Iíve helped clients eliminate specific fears related to flying, riding in elevators, public speaking, fear of various animals and insects and the necessity of  facing particular medical and dental interventions. Several of my clients immediately helped themselves to overcome depression from loss and past sexual abuse, worry about various illnesses and debilitating emotions from unfulfilled relationships. I find it effective to eliminate long lasting anger and rage, often resulting in the immediate reduction of various physical pains. Itís also excellent for helping with addictive cravings and traumatic memories.  Iím constantly amazed at the speed with which these changes occur, the ease with which people learn to use EFT and the permanence of the relief. 

EFT fits under the umbrella of the growing field of Energy Psychology. The first International Energy Psychology Conference was held in Las Vegas in April, 1999, and the second Conference in Toronto that October, at which I was a presenter. A second Las Vegas Conference was held last April and Toronto hosted its second one in November 2000. These two conferences continue to be held annually in both locations. In 2002, I presented at the European Energy Psychology Conference held in Oxford, England. Information on further scheduled Conferences, in Canada and abroad, will be sent on request.

In my workshops, I encourage health professionals to integrate EFT into their own practice in their own unique way. It can be an important tool to be used as an adjunct for any of the more traditional medical interventions and/or therapies.
