EFT—Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT is a simple meridian-based energy therapy.  Its effectiveness is often profound.  Similar in some aspects to acupuncture, but WITHOUT the needles, EFT is helping to transform people's lives.

The EFT process is basically to tap with our fingertips on certain points along the body's energy meridians.  I use three or four fingers to accomplish this. Along with our tapping we address the concern we are working on with appropriate
words and thoughts.  And we include positive affirmations as well.  

tapping points EFT

Let's get started, shall we? We will be tapping each point about seven times before moving to the next one. Rest your hand or fist on the table next to you while pointing your thumb of that hand directly up towards the ceiling. The fleshy part of your hand against the table is what we will call the Karate Chop Point. It runs from the base of the little finger to just about to the top of the wrist.

Now take the fingers of your other hand and begin tapping that Karate Chop Point. You may want to do the tapping with your dominant hand. Some people may even choose to not use a second hand, and may merely tap the Karate Chop Point itself on the table or on their knee, etc. Find what works best for you. Tap tap tap . . .

I generally move to the Eyebrow Point next. This is located at the beginning of either eyebrow nearest the bridge of your nose. That's where I place my index finger, with my other fingers horizontally towards the center of my brow. Tap tap tap . . . 

Next, we'll move to the side of the eye. This point is located on the bone at the outside of either eye. I tend to tap this Side of Eye Point with my ring finger, assisted by my middle and index fingers nearer to my temple. Tap tap tap . . .

We now move to the bone ridge directly under either eye. Tap this Under the Eye Point about seven times. Tap tap tap . . .

Now tap your Under the Nose Point with the fingers of either hand. This point is directly under the nose, and half way between the nose and upper lip. Tap tap tap . . .

Next is the Chin Point. This is actually the area half way between the chin and the lower lip, rather than on the tip of the chin. Let's tap the Chin Point now. Tap tap tap . . .

On to the Collar Bone Point. This is found about an inch down from that little indentation where we men tie our ties, and an inch or so to either side. To assure you get this point, you may want to cover a greater area by using a light fist in this area. I often find myself tapping this point throughout particularly intense or involved days. It helps keep my energy flowing. Tap tap tap . . . 

From here we'll move to a point three or four inches below the armpit. It's essentially level with a man's nipple. For women, it's basically in the center of where the bra extends to the side of the body. This is our Under the Arm Point. Tap tap tap . . .

And finally, we tap on an area which is about an inch under a man's nipple, or directly under a woman's breast. We'll call this the Under the Breast Point. Tap tap tap . . .

And that's it!

Another way to start tapping after the Karate Chop Point would be at the Top of the Head Point before moving on to the Eyebrow Point. When I choose to tap my Top of the Head Point, I tend to actually use my palm for the tapping. That way it feels like a complimentary "pat" on the crown of my head. Tap tap tap.

These points- with or without the top of head/ under the breast points-- compose a short form of EFT which has often been utilized by EFT's founder Gary Craig. This short form of EFT appears often in Gary's EFT videos- especially in the more recent series.

As you familiarize yourself with EFT's tapping process, you may find yourself beginning and ending at various points along the way. There is an intuitive element to EFT which welcomes creativity of order with the tapping points. Feel free to experiment!
