I’m a skeptic when it comes to energy psychology, and much of what alternative medicine claims to offer, particularly when it comes to mental health.

For those of you unfamiliar with EFT, or tapping as it’s commonly known, it’s basically a form of alternative medicine which claims that tapping on certain acupuncture points can help relieve various psychological problems.
In today’s episode, I’m joined by Dawson Church, PhD, founder of EFT Universe, to discuss the origins and theory behind EFT, it’s professed application to the likes of anxiety and PTSD, whether “blocked energy” is at the cause or effect of psychological distress, and whether or not the positive effects of EFT can be explained away by the placebo effect.
