Demo #4 for EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique

Demonstration on how to use EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique with a patient with stress. EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is the best known among the many offshoots of Thought Field Therapy. Gary Craig is the originator of this energy psychology meridian therapy. There are certainly more similarities than differences between EFT and TFT. The main difference is that Gary Craig came to believe, correctly in my opinion, that the order of the specific tapping sequences for the algorithms was superfluous. This is in accord with the basic tenants of applied kinesiology and Touch for Health. In these disciplines there are times when treating one acupuncture point might reestablish the balance in several meridians or conditions, but for almost all problems the exact sequence of the treatment is irrelevant. The other main difference between EFT and TFT is that Gary Craig streamlined his approach and essentially developed a one size fits all system. He believes that if all 14 meridian points are stimulated almost all problems, regardless of the type, will be resolved.

It began in the 1980s, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, as well as a person with an extreme fear of water. Mary's fear of water regulated her life and maintained her from day-to-day tasks. She was incapable to take her kids to the coastline as well as was unable to drive near the sea; she expanded afraid when it drizzled, and also could not even endure the sight of water on TV. She had vibrant headaches including water.

Dr. Callahan as well as Mary had been functioning on this issue with each other for over a year. Mary worked up the guts to sit within view of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's residence.

Dr. Callahan had actually just recently been studying standard Chinese medicines, and also finding out regarding meridians. Remembering that there was an acupuncture factor for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, assuming it may cure her stomach pains.

Mary tapped her cheekbone as routed, as well as this little activity changed medicinal background! The reaction seemed remarkable, to both Mary and also Dr. Callahan. Her tummy discomforts disappeared. Even a lot more astonishingly, her fear of water vanished, as well! She ran down to the swimming pool and also started spraying herself with water, enjoying her newfound freedom from fear.

Based on this discovery, Dr. Callahan began a collection of examinations to establish and also improve this technique, which he termed Idea Area Treatment. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutelage in the 1990's, finding out the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig began to observe some troubles with TFT, aspects that he saw were unneeded issues.

TFT required experts to tap on a details sequence of meridians (called an algorithm) for each various problem. Diagnosing the issue needed a technique called muscle screening, in which the expert would certainly determine the family member stamina of a muscular tissue, while the individual checked out various thoughts or statements.

Gary observed duplicated situations where the problem was improperly identified or the expert tapped out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the individual was still aided. Based upon these observations, he ended that it did not matter where order the meridian factors were touched.

Craig developed EFT as a streamlined, improved variation of the concepts behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one standard, simple series of indicate tap, whatever the situation.
