What Is EFT/TFT?
In the field of Energy Medicine, several important techniques have been developed for treating negative emotional states and behaviors. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), developed in 1995 by Gary Craig, was based on Dr. Roger Callahan’s earlier Meridian Tapping System: Thought Field Therapy (TFT). These modalities are called Energy Psychology.
Another important technique is the Guided Empathy Method (GEM) of EFT, developed exclusively at the Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy in N. California. Both techniques utilize the basic concepts of the Body/Mind Connection. They combine acupressure (not acupuncture) on the body’s energy meridians (tapping points on the body instead of using needles), with verbal “I” statements from me, the practitioner, which are repeated by you. Additional concepts were added to GEM/EFT, stressing empathy and understanding, which gently guide you to healing.
Since everything that a person experiences is recorded in their subconscious mind, it is essential to access it to correct habitual, negative thinking and behaviors. These negative emotions are stored as disruptions in the body’s energy system. Tapping on the meridian points neutralizes the negative energies passing between the subconscious and the body consciousness. The mirroring, tapping, and repeating of the “I” statements creates a mild hypnosis and an emotional “anesthesia” in the mind’s critical factor, allowing you to have an “Aha!” moment. This allows the subconscious to experience a “shift” in its perspective, which releases the negative emotion. I then replace this with positive suggestions, emotions and habits. The critical factor is overridden, which allows for a transformation of the “global” issue (the entire problem), rather than just one aspect of it. Thus, the healing experience, which may happen in a matter of minutes, is powerful and profound. Since all four components of the mind are addressed: the conscious mind, the critical factor, the subconscious mind, and the unconscious mind, your healing can be quickly achieved at depth.
GEM/EFT is also an effective treatment for pain, fears, phobias, traumas, addictions, obsessions, anger, rage, depression and PTSD (both military and civilian). It also treats numerous physical conditions, including: sleeping disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart rhythm abnormalities, and ADHD/ADD. Thus, it works very well treating children and teenagers.
EFT/TFT treatments do not “erase” the memory itself, instead, they release the negative emotional charge associated with the memory. You can still remember it, but without the emotional pain.
Energy Medicine/Energy Psychology has been a highly respected and proven modality in the USA for over 30 years. A study by Diepold and Goldstein (2008) showed that relating traumatic memories produces changes in a client’s Electro Encephalogram (EEG) readings. These readings normalize after TFT treatment. They did an 18-month follow-up study and found that the improvement still held. Also, cortisol (the body’s main stress hormone) dropped after EFT treatments. The client’s heart rate variability (HRV) also improved. An added advantage is that the client does not have to talk at length about the trauma, thus avoiding reinforcing the trauma.
