Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
EFT is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease.  Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.  Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.
EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of finger tip tapping on 12 acupuncture points.  Over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including dozens of clinical trials, have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), pain, and other problems.
