EFT is an Energy Therapy technique formulated by Gary Craig, a former Stanford engineer and an innovative emotional management coach. Gary Craig studied with psychiatrist Roger Callahan who developed one of the first Energy Therapy techniques for releasing negative feelings called TFT (Thought Field Therapy). TFT used specific recipes or algorithms for tapping at key energy points (also used in acupuncture) found along the energy pathways or meridians of the body. Gary Craig wanted to simplify the TFT techniques, so he developed a consistent tapping sequence which simplified the TFT method. Find out more about Gary Craig and the history of EFT or download his free EFT manual at the Emotional Freedom Techniques website .
For a wonderful, short introduction to the EFT basics including diagrams of all the key meridian tapping points, see the Certified Energy Coach Program EFT Basics page .
Once you know the Basic Set Up and the Tapping Sequence, it is fun to explore different areas ofyour life which can be improved through the use of EFT. One EFT book which I would highly recommend is Freedom at Your Fingertips: Get Rapid Physical & Emotional Relief with the Breakthrough System of Tapping, edited by Ron Ball (available in May of 2006). This wonderful resource contains 18 different chapters which will cover everything from eliminating trauma to how to successfully lose weight incorporating EFT methods. If you are a parent or you interact with children and teens through your work or extended family, you are welcome to check out Jan Yordy’s chapter Children. and Teens, Using magic fingers to energize youngsters.
