Per Gary Craig, the founder of emotional freedom technique (EFT), also called meridian tapping: "EFT is based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from pain, diseases and emotional issues. Simply stated, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. Instead, you stimulate well-established energy meridian points on your body by tapping with your fingertips. The process is easy to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It launches off of the EFT Discovery Statement which says...
"The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system."
And because our physical pains and diseases are so obviously connected with our emotions, the following statement has also proven to be true...
"Our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases."
This common sense approach to EFT draws its power from (1) time-honored Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years and (2) Albert Einstein, who told us back in the 1920's that everything (including our bodies) is composed of energy. These ideas have been largely ignored by Western Healing Practices and that is why EFT often works where nothing else will."

When something traumatic happens in your life, your energy system is "zapped," sort of like a satellite dish channel whose frequency is off kilter due to some sort of environmental interference. By tapping on various energy meridians using EFT that are close to the surface of your body, EFT helps to clear this blocked energy. Once your energy is flowing smoothly again, you are able to let go of issues that once troubled you.
You can achieve results more quickly if you hone in on a specific issue from which you want emotional relief. EFT works more quickly than traditional talk therapy that could take years before you achieve emotional freedom, if at all. Some people have likened traditional therapy to moving the furniture (issues) around in your mind, and EFT clears it out. EFT doesn't cause you to forget memories or lose common sense. You will simply find that you are able to view your "troubled situation" in a more calm and rational way. You won't be so "over the top" on an issue. Try it! EFT really works!
