Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, is a powerful practice rooted in ancient healing principles dating back over 5,000 years to Chinese Shaolin and Taoist monasteries. These early scientists and healers established energy maps of the human body that served as the foundation for Eastern healing arts such as acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu massage, and reflexology.
In addition to ancient wisdom, EFT has been shaped by the contributions of countless individuals who have deepened our understanding of human psychology. This therapy draws important influence, particularly for deep emotional and psychological issues, from the collective knowledge amassed over the ages.
The development of EFT owes much to the groundbreaking and relatively modern work of Dr. George Goodheart, the founder of Applied Kinesiology, and Dr. Roger Callahan, the pioneer of TFT Thought Field Therapy. In the early 1990s, Gary Craig, a former student of Dr. Callahan, simplified the complex TFT algorithms, making the process universally applicable to all.
By gently tapping on the body’s well-established energy meridian points with our fingertips, EFT effectively clears mental, emotional, and physical issues of their associated emotional debris and blocks in the energy meridians. This simple yet profound technique allows for the successful resolution of emotional barriers, aiding in the restoration of balance and well-being.
Strength, Courage and Compassion
I met Lisa soon after she had a car accident with her three children. I visited each fortnight for nearly 2 years supporting Lisa with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) I observed how she gently over time cleared a mass of emotion, trauma and stress connected with the car accident. I knew one day she would be doing this work too. Lisa has amazing strength, courage and compassion and there are many who could benefit from what she has to offer.
