Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT for short) has provided thousands of people with relief from pain, cravings,
and emotional issues. Simply stated, it's a unique version of acupuncture that you can do yourself and requires no
needles. You simply stimulate well-established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your
fingertips. The process is easy to memorize and you can use it almost anywhere at any time.
EFT is based on the discovery that imbalances in the body's energy system have profound effects on one's
personal psychology. Correcting these imbalances, which is done by tapping on certain body locations, often leads
to rapid remedies. Most problems vanish in minutes!
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) was originally designed to reduce the psychotherapy process from months and
years down to minutes and hours. From there it was discovered that astonishing physical healings also occurred.
Symptoms faded for everything from Migraine Headaches to Cancer. Complete details are given on the EFT website at

How does it work?
There are four steps to the basic EFT process, two of which are identical. They are:
1. The Setup
2. The Sequence
3. The 9 Gamut Procedure
4. The Sequence
The Setup is designed to define the problem (a specific food craving) and neutralize any negative thinking that
might sabotage the EFT process.
The Sequence is a tapping process that covers the major energy meridians of the body using the fingertips of
your index finger and middle finger of your dominate hand. These major energy meridians are the beginning of the
eyebrow just above the nose; the bone bordering the outside corner of the eye; the bone under the eye; the mustache
area between the bottom of your nose and the top of your upper lip; the midway point between your chin and the
bottom of your lower lip; the area where the sternum; collarbone and first rib meet; the side of the body about
four inches below the armpit; the outside edge of your thumb even with the base of your thumbnail; the sides of
your index finger, middle finger and little finger, in that order and all even with the base of the fingernails;
and finally, the fleshy part of the outside of your hand (referred to as the karate chop point).
The 9 Gamut Procedure is the most bizarre looking process within EFT. Its purpose is to "fine tune" the brain
and it does so via some eye movements and some humming and counting. Here's how it works: locate the Gamut point
(the back of either hand, between the knuckles at the base of the ring finger and the little finger) and perform
these 9 different actions while tapping on the Gamut point ... close your eyes, open your eyes, look down hard
right while holding your head steady, look down hard left, roll your eyes clockwise, roll your eyes counter
clockwise, hum two seconds of Happy Birthday, count rapidly from 1 to 5, hum two seconds of Happy Birthday
Then you run through the Sequence one final time.
That's it! Not only is it easier than it sounds, it's fun!
