10 Quick Facts about EFT Tapping


  • EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals.

  • A literature search identifies 51 peer-reviewed papers that report or investigate clinical outcomes following the tapping of acupuncture points to address psychological issues.

  • EFT is simple, fast, easy to learn and highly effective

  • According to Dr. Dawson Church, “Tapping on acupressure points while focusing on our problem sends signals directly to the stress centres of the mid-brain, not mediated by the frontal lobes (the thinking part, active in talk therapy). Because EFT simultaneously accesses stress on physical and emotional levels, EFT gives you the best of both worlds, body and mind, like getting a massage during a psychotherapy session.”
