EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, is a therapeutic practice that combines elements from Traditional Chinese Medicine (specifically acupuncture), cognitive reframing, and gentle finger tapping on specific acupressure points, or acupoints. This approach aims to alleviate emotional distress and promote psychological well-being.
A study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, a highly respected peer-reviewed psychology journal in the United States, demonstrated that EFT significantly reduced cortisol levels, a primary stress hormone, more effectively than other tested interventions.

EFT has its roots in the 1970s when Clinical Psychologist Roger Callahan discovered that combining psychotherapy with tapping on acupressure points led to rapid improvements in psychological trauma. Callahan's approach, known as Thought Field Therapy (TFT), was later refined by Gary Craig into Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to make it more accessible to the general public (The Promise of Energy Psychology, Feinstein, Eden, and Craig, 2005). EFT and similar techniques are often grouped under the broader category of "energy psychology."
