“I tap daily to release negative emotions and energy. It helps me stay grounded in the present moment,” says Kate W., an emotional freedom techniques (EFT) tapping practitioner and teacher from San Francisco. “I’ve used EFT tapping for anxiety, healing, loss, fear, and so much more.”

This method involves gentle tapping on your body on specific meridian points and has been clinically shown to relieve stress, anxiety, depression, and other issues.[1]



What’s The Story Behind Emotional Freedom Techniques?

Invented by Gary Craig, emotional freedom techniques (EFT) were designed to eliminate stress and free you of emotions that drag you down. When people say EFT, they most commonly mean tapping, a scientifically well-documented method that involves applying pressure on specific points of the body.[1] To do EFT tapping, you use your fingertips to gently tap on these points while focusing on the issues you want to resolve and saying phrases out loud (see below for a script).

Craig’s original techniques also included other therapies, such as the movie technique, where you tap while thinking of specific negative experiences, helping to lessen their intensity. Emotional Freedom Techniques draw on acupuncture, acupressure, neurolinguistic programming, psychology, and energy healing to provide physical and emotional benefits, such as reducing stress.[2].

EFT also incorporate elements of traditional Chinese medicine. Tapping stimulates meridian points in the body, part of a energy system that moves “chi” — which means the energy of life — around.[2] It’s believed that tapping on these meridian points helps release negative energy and stressful feelings.[2]

Because stress is intimately connected with your immune system, eliminating or reducing it will improve your overall health and wellness.
