EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

What Is EFT?

Bristol Based EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Therapist and Matrix Reimprinting specialist. Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT (often known as Tapping or EFT Tapping), is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues.

EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues you can clear the more peace and emotional freedom you will have in your life.  Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body.

In many cases, EFT will reduce symptoms and you may get relief without exploring any emotional contributors. However, for the most powerful, longest lasting results with EFT, we would clear any related issues that arise in that session.

Tapping provides relief from chronic pain, emotional problems, disorders, addictions, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, and physical diseases. While Tapping is newly set to revolutionise the field of health and wellness, the healing concepts that it’s based upon have been in practice in Eastern medicine for over 5,000 years. Like acupuncture and acupressure, Tapping is a set of techniques which utilise the body’s energy meridian system. You can stimulate these meridian points by tapping on them with your fingertips – literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power.  Gary Craig EFT’s founder says “The cause of all Negative Emotion is Causes by a Disturbance in the Energy System” By neutralising the emotional charge behind the past patterns you can free yourself from unwanted symptoms of those patterns or habits.

How can EFT help me?

EFT can be applied to virtually any psychological or physical problem:

  • Health problems – pain relief, allergies, respiratory problems, blood pressure, sleep problems

  • Helping with unwanted emotion – anger, feelings of abandonment, abuse etc.

  • Self-image, self-esteem

  • Anxiety, trauma and depression

  • All Fears and phobias

  • Addictions, habits and compulsions

  • Emotional Challenges

  • Children’s issues

  • Learning problems

  • Multigenerational trauma

  • Procrastination

  • Stress

  • Negative thinking

  • Feeling Lost

It’s a powerful tool for working with feelings or memories. Rather than continuing to drain your energies or cause defensive manipulations within your subconscious “Our writings on the wall“ the negative persistent internal messages we tell ourselves that can hold us back. It can help you transform a difficult experience from your past into a source of wisdom and strength; it really is so very empowering.

It’s great for transforming your negative core beliefs. It creates the freedom for you to be who you truly are and shine and you will of course learn a powerful self-help tool to help yourself in the future.

The moment you change your perception is the moment you re-write the chemistry of your body

Matrix Reimprinting

Matrix Reimprinting is also a Meridian tapping therapy; it is effective for the treatment of emotional or physical issues, and can be used to manifest your goals and dreams. It evolved from EFT.


In about 1980 Dr Callahan started a therapy called TFT it required practitioners to tap on a specific sequence of meridians (called an algorithm) for each different problem. Diagnosing the problem required a technique called muscle testing, wherein the practitioner would measure the relative strength of a muscle, while the patient explored various thoughts or statements. Gary Craig observed repeated scenarios in which the problem was incorrectly diagnosed or the practitioner tapped out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the patient was still helped. Based on these observations, he concluded that it did not matter in which order the meridian points were tapped. Gary Craig developed EFT as a simplified, improved version of the concepts behind Dr Callahan’s TFT. EFT has one basic, simple sequence of points to tap, no matter what the situation.
