Healing With Acupuncture and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a healing tool based on the theory that our emotions and physical symptoms are linked to the underlying energy system of the body.

That energy system is the acupuncture meridian system known to the Chinese for thousands of years. EFT
was developed by Stanford Engineer Gary Craig, who discovered the basic theory in 1991 and continues to this day to develop and improve on EFTapplications.

The underpinning theory of EFT is simple, yet sheds a whole new light on our emotional experiences and how we interpret them.

Gary Craig’s EFT discovery statement asserts that: “The cause of allĀ negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” HeĀ believes that “our unresolved negative emotions are major contributorsĀ to most physical pains and diseases.”

How Does EFT Work?

Chinese Medicine and the ancient Indian Science of Ayurveda bothĀ support the concept that our emotional experiences, in particularĀ resentments, hurts and anger, contribute significantly to theĀ development of disease in the human body.

While the EFT theory that all negative emotions are caused by aĀ disruption in the energy system of the body may sound odd at first, theĀ idea is far from new. In fact, it’s 5,000 years old and was moreĀ recently enforced by Albert Einstein who taught that everything is madeĀ of energy.

EFT embraces the secretsĀ of Eastern healing traditions that have been overlooked by the West.

EFT and Acupuncture

In acupuncture, points are carefully selected by practitioners trainedĀ to read the maps of the meridian system.

Acupuncture is finally attracting interest, and research has beenĀ conducted to try and figure out how and why it works. Yet that researchĀ will always seek to put acupuncture in a box that makes sense to whatĀ conforms in the West.

The impressive results of acupuncture have beenĀ called a placebo effect, when, in truth, they are due to an ancient
understanding of meridian energy circuitry which runs throughout allĀ living creatures.

EFT is based on a select fewĀ of these potent points known to excel in giving emotional and physicalĀ relief to anyone who simply learns where they are and how to use them.

EFT doesn’t require expert knowledge, or the use of needles, the pointsĀ are simply stimulated by tapping on them with the fingertips.

We need only look to the fact that in China hundreds of people everyĀ day undergo heart surgery using nothing but acupuncture forĀ anaesthesia, to realise that anything based on the solid healingĀ foundation that acupuncture has to offer is worth exploring further.

Gary Craig developed EFT as an incredibly user friendly access point toĀ the benefits of acupuncture and the healing potential latent within usĀ all to deal with our physical and emotional pain.

EFTā€™s track recordĀ for relieving negative emotions, anxiety and trauma has earned it theĀ descriptive title of ā€œacupuncture for the emotions, but without the needles.ā€

The EFT Challenge

There’s an old saying that we should judge a tree by its fruits. TheĀ fruits of EFT can be quickly and easily tasted by learning the basicsĀ and setting EFT to work on dissolving any negative emotion. EFT takesĀ just 5 minutes to learn, and then you can put it to the test of yourĀ own direct experience.
