What Is EFT Tapping? A Detailed Scientific Guide on Emotional Freedom Technique


Tap your worries away? It may seem overly simplistic, but it just might be possible through the use of the emotional freedom technique (EFT).


Tapping, or EFT, is a mind-body therapy that draws on the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice of acupuncture, and it is used today as a self-help approach in modern psychology. It involves tapping key acupressure points (acupoints) on the hands, face, and body with your fingertips while focusing on uncomfortable feelings or concerns, and using positive affirmations to neutralize those feelings, according to EFT International (PDF).
