What is EFT?

EFT (emotional freedom technique) was developed by Gary Craig in the 1990’s and has it’s roots within acupuncture and kinesiology. EFT works by directly impacting on the body’s natural energy flow by tapping on the meridian points much like acupuncture and acupressure.

EFT can help with addictions, phobias, depression, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, panic disorder, PTSD, allergies, pain management and control, weight loss and weight control, eating issues, eating disorders, ADD, ADHD, asthma, headaches, migraines, back pain and joint relief, reducing blood pressure and other medical conditions, and many other conditions and issues.

EFT works by gently tapping certain energy or meridian points with the finger tips, these points are located on the hand and upper body.

Some things to consider with EFT are that:

  • It will often work on when nothing else will 
  • It is gentle, works quickly and is long lasting 
  • It can be easily learned by anyone
  • It can be self applied
  • No drugs or equipment are required

What conditions can EFT be used for?

EFT can be used effectively for conditions such as:

  • PTSD

EFT – Basic Tapping Points

EFT Tapping Points

EFT Tapping History

EFT tapping was born with Gary Craig in the 1990’s. He developed it after being trained by Dr. Roger Callahan in Thought Field Therapy (TFT).

In 1980, Dr. Callahan discovered the beginning of TFT literally by accident.

He had been trying to help someone clear an intense phobia of water with traditional therapy without success. One day, he happened to be sitting with this individual just a few yards away from a swimming pool.

As he was pondering how her phobia had persisted, it occurred to him to have her tap under her eye with her fingertips. He was remembering that this acupuncture point fell on the stomach acupuncture meridian point where the phobia was experienced by this woman.

To his great amazement, after the woman tapped under her eye she got out of her chair and hurried to the pool, no longer afraid of the water.

Her phobia never returned.

Dr. Callahan then investigated this occurrence and developed Thought Field Therapy (TFT) which uses tapping algorithms (tapping routines to address emotional issues.

After Gary Craig was trained by Dr. Callahan in TFT, he modified what he learned and decided to include all the points in the tapping for all issues, so that it was not necessary to determine which acupuncture points where blocked by that particular issue and the order of the tapping was not essential.

Gary basically simplified and generalized the TFT process and called it “The Basic EFT Recipe”. In 1995 Gary made EFT tapping available to therapists and later to the world via the internet.

He generously offered the EFT Handbook free to the public. He also published his EFT Library Training Videos and offered them for sale at his “emofree” website. 

Gary emphasizes,

“I am neither a psychologist nor a licensed therapist. Rather, I am a Stanford engineering graduate and an ordained minister and, although we don’t pound the table for God here, I do come at this procedure from a decidedly spiritual perspective. My ordained ministry is with the Universal Church of God in Southern California which is non-denominational and embraces all religions.

I am an avid student of A Course In Miracles but at no time is any EFT’er asked to follow any specific spiritual teaching. I was born April 13, 1940 and have been intensely interested in personal improvement via psychology since age13. That was when I recognized that the quality of my thoughts was mirrored in the quality of my life. Since then I have been self taught in this field, seeking only those procedures that, in my opinion, produced results. EFT is my latest finding, the core of which I learned from Dr.Roger Callahan. I also have high regard for Neuro Linguistic Programming(NLP) in which I am a Certified Master Practitioner.”

The great contribution that Gary is making to what he called the “Healing High Rise”, is not yet fully recognized or appreciated by the general public, but I am positive it will be in the future. My deep gratitude goes to him and this work of love.

Gary Craig unexpectedly retired in 2010. Gary, along with his daughter Tina Craig, had just taken over the training and academic certification of the EFT Practitioners when he decided to retire due to health concerns.
