EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT stands for “Emotional Freedom Techniques.” It is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments, but without the use of needles. The technique involves tapping on specific points on the body while focusing on a particular negative emotion or problem. It is believed to help release emotional blockages, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall well-being.

A number of studies have found that EFT can be effective for reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD, as well as for improving self-esteem and reducing stress. A meta-analysis of studies on EFT for anxiety, depression, and PTSD found that EFT was effective in reducing symptoms in the majority of participants.

Additionally, EFT has been found to be effective in reducing symptoms of specific phobias such as fear of flying, public speaking, and heights.
