The term “Clinical EFT” refers to the “evidence-based” method that has been validated in research studies that meet the requirements of the American Psychological Association (APA) Division 12 Task Force on Empirically Validated Therapies.

One of these Division 12 critieria is that the method studied be described in a manual. Clinical EFT is based on the method defined in The EFT Manual and supplementary materials. The EFT Manual appeared in print in 2008, with a second edition in 2010, and a third in 2013. The manual is supplemented by an extensive collection of case histories and commentary found on this site.

Some 48 distinct techniques are described in this body of knowledge. Clinical EFT has been validated by numerous studies in which EFT has been delivered with fidelity to The EFT Manual. Research has demonstrated that Clinical EFT works quickly and effectively for phobias, PTSD, anxiety, depression, pain, and many other conditions.

A current bibliography of this research is maintained at EFT Universe, as well as a full description of the APA standards. Training and certification offered by EFT Universe conforms to the standards of Clinical EFT.

Stress Relief with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Emotional Freedom Technique is a simple acupressure technique for releasing negative feelings.

EFT Therapy Penarth

You feel negative feelings in the body, so you have to go to the body to work on them.

You can release a negative feeling right now with this video. If you’re stressed you should find yourself more relaxed after this video, and feeling more able to deal with whatever is stressing you.


Q: How hard should I tap?
A: Tap lightly, just so that you feel it. The purpose of the tapping is to bring your attention to different parts of your body, it actually works if you just imagine tapping – as long as your attention is drawn to the right points.

Q: How can I be sure I am finding the right points?
A: Use two fingers to make sure you cover the points. Sometimes the point will ‘feel’ right, as if there is a slight indent in the skin or the point is particularly sensitive. It’s all connected so you don’t have to be 100% accurate.

Q: You have missed out points that Gary Craig teaches!
A: Yes. Feel free to tap those too, I left them out to keep the video simple and it seems to work fine without them. If you find the video doesn’t work for you, try tapping the additional points – around the top-middle of the head, and just under the armpit.

Q: Is the sequence important?
A: No. You can tap the points in any order. In fact you only need to tap one or two of the points for each particular feeling. It’s just you have no easy way to know which point so you might as well tap them all.

Q: I am a skeptic! / You are a charlatan!
A: Thanks. Tapping is perfectly explainable scientifically but it does go beyond most people’s understanding. It really does work though, and the best way to prove that to yourself is to try it and watch your negative feelings disappear.

Also this video shows use of an electro-acupuncture pen to show that the points have a different electrical resistence to other parts of the body:
