It started in 1980, with a psychotherapist by the name of Roger Callahan, and a patient with an extreme anxiety of water. Mary's concern of water regulated her life and kept her from daily activities. She was not able to take her kids to the coastline as well as was unable to drive near the ocean; she grew fearful when it drizzled, and also could not also withstand the view of water on television. She had vibrant nightmares including water.
Callahan and Mary had been working on this trouble with each other for over a year. Ultimately, Mary worked up the nerve to sit within sight of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's home. Even doing this caused Mary severe distress, as well as though she discovered ways to deal with the extreme worry and emotional pain, she did not overcome her anxiety. They reviewed her problem, as well as ways to overcome it, but without success.
Dr. Callahan had recently been examining conventional Chinese medications, and learning regarding meridians. Keeping in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the tummy meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, thinking it could heal her tummy pains.
Mary tapped her cheekbone as routed, and also this little activity altered medicinal history! The feedback seemed amazing, to both Mary as well as Dr. Callahan. Her stomach pains disappeared. But even more astonishingly, her phobia of water went away, too! She diminished to the swimming pool and also began splashing herself with water, rejoicing in her newfound freedom from fear.

As time passed, Craig started to observe some troubles with TFT, elements that he saw were unneeded complications.
TFT required practitioners to tap on a details sequence of meridians (called a formula) for every various trouble. Diagnosing the problem required a technique called muscle testing, in which the expert would determine the relative strength of a muscular tissue, while the person checked out various thoughts or declarations.
Craig observed repeated situations in which the issue was incorrectly diagnosed or the practitioner touched out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the person was still assisted. Based on these monitorings, he concluded that it did not matter in which order the meridian points were tapped.
Craig developed EFT as a streamlined, enhanced variation of the ideas behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one basic, basic sequence of indicate tap, regardless of what the situation.
