Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that stimulates acupressure points by tapping these points while focusing on situations that represent personal fear or trauma. EFT draws on various theories of including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, brainspotting and hypnosis. EFT also combines elements of exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and somatic stimulation. EFT and similar techniques are often discussed under the umbrella term "energy psychology, " and its efficacy is further supported by new research into neuroscience including neuro plasticity.
The technique may be used to treat a wide variety of physical and psychological disorders, and as a simple form of provider-administer therapy that can lead to self-administered therapy, once the client is trained in the process.
