Emotional Freedom Technique and Thought Field Therapy are based on the same energy meridians used in acupuncture. The practitioner taps the meridians or pressure points with their fingers while the client focuses on the problem they would like to solve. EFT and TFT can relieve both emotional and physical problems by opening up energy blockages and restoring the mind/body balance. Core emotional issues, as well as physical difficulties, often clear quickly and easily. Some of the many areas in which EFT and TFT are effective are: addictions, pain, depression, anxiety, phobias, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) etc.
The difference between the two therapies is that TFT uses a specific prescribed tapping sequence depending on the type of problem the client is focusing on; versus with EFT all pressure points are tapped in the same sequence regardless of the type of problem the client wishes to solve.
