Emotional Freedom Technique or Meridian Tapping
You have an amazing power to heal yourself, to reduce your pain and speed your healing process. This power was given to you at birth, but most likely you are not aware of it. Even if you’ve heard about this power, you may not know how to tap into it to your advantage… The good news is that it’s easy to learn and use, so you too can get startling results!
It all starts by becoming aware of the link that exists between mental, emotional and physical health. This concept has been gaining credibility in recent years, especially after Louise Hay started talking about the subject nearly 20 years ago.
Louise Hay’s books “Heal Your Body” and “You Can Heal Your Life” explain her philosophy based on the understanding of how emotions affect our health and how properly stated affirmations can help us regain our health. I highly recommend these books, especially if you want to know how the healing process works from the inside out.
Science has already proven that stress and mental strain can have an impact in our health. Therefore, it is safe to assume that releasing emotional strain must have a positive impact in our health. Once this fact is brought to awareness, we become better equipped to assist and support our healing process. Emotional Freedom Technique, better known as EFT or Meridian Tapping is a powerful and simple practice that can help prevent or alleviate physical pain, diseases, phobias and many other emotional issues.
Tapping works because it facilitates the clearing of limiting beliefs and unconscious blocks that can be the underlying cause of chronic conditions. Some EFT enthusiasts claim that it can even help create monetary abundance and prosperity. When we consider that energy blocks are the cause behind beliefs of lack and limitation implanted into the subconscious mind, this actually makes sense. In essence, this technique offers a gentle way of dissolving these blocks and limitations, freeing you to create a healthier, happier, more abundant life.
Just to be fair, EFT is not a miracle cure for all diseases; however, it usually works well for many common conditions such as chronic pain and many mental anguish ailments. The technique is safe for all ages, and can be done anywhere and anytime as no special equipment is needed. All you need is learning the technique, the tips of your fingers and a few minutes to follow the sequence. Frequently, spectacular results can be achieved where nothing else had worked!
The following points offer support to understand why Tapping works.
- Going back to the beginning of the 20th century, Albert Einstein discovered that everything is made up of energy; yes, including the human body. Recent Quantum Physics studies have confirmed this is a fact. If, like Einstein said… “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed” – we can affect and alter the flow of energy within to help the body heal.
- About 5000 years ago, the Chinese revealed that a certain life force essential to sustain life exists in the universe. They called it Qi – pronounced “Chi” – and its literal translation is energy.
- Eastern Medicine has long recognized the importance of maintaining good health by keeping a free flow of energy within the human body. This is where the practice of acupuncture gets its roots from.
- The Hindu books of knowledge called “Vedas” affirm the existence of seven energy centers in the human body. These are called “chakras” and each has its unique frequency and vibration.
- Ayurvedic Medicine, a traditional medical practice in India (ayu means life and veda means knowledge or science), is based on treating the energy centers by restoring their balance so energy can freely flow in and through the chakras and renovate the “prana” or life force.
- These very energy pathways serve as principles in the practice of acupuncture and acupressure.
It has been said that unresolved negative emotions, like resentment, anger, traumas, regrets and guilt, are intimately linked to some physical conditions and diseases. For instance, certain types of cancer have been linked to holding feelings of resentment.
If we now know that the human body is an energy system, it makes perfect sense to assume that every emotion and every experience has an impact in our energy centers either positively or negatively. We have all experience this at some level; however, it can be subtle so not too many people recognize it unless it’s brought to their attention.
If you have ever felt the muscular tension that comes after an argument, for instance, you know how an energy blockage feels. For energy to flow freely, we must be relaxed and in peace most of the time. Hence the saying “go with the flow…” Not easy, I hear you say; and you are absolutely right. This is one more reason to learn EFT, so you can handle the stress as you need it or on a day to day basis. The few moments that you dedicate to this practice could pay off big by having good health until the golden years.
Moreover, there is usually a correlation between the onset of disease and a significant event in life that has created some type of trauma. For instance, research has discovered that there is a clear correlation between PTSD and the onset of heart disease or diabetes type 2. When we consider the points mentioned above, we can easily conclude that a trauma can produce a blockage in the energy flow which in turn manifests as an illness.
Now, while this is not always the case, it happens often enough to pinpoint a correlation. Having said that, the link between trauma and illness is not yet well understood, and we don’t know either why some people are more vulnerable than others. What we know is that there are several factors at play, such as predisposition due to genetic factors, individual immune response, and even the degree of resilience that a person might have developed.
Taking it all into consideration, there is a good reason to believe that tapping can help either curve the response to a traumatic event to either prevent disease or to alleviate some of the existing symptoms by opening the energy flow.

EFT works by alleviating, unblocking or unclogging obstructions on the energy path. It is similar to acupuncture except needles are not necessary. Instead, the meridian points are tapped with your fingertips in a specific sequence to reach the result you seek. EFT is easy, effective and can produce amazing results… quite fast.
EFT was originally designed to reduce the psychotherapy process from months and years down to hours and even minutes. From there it was discovered that astonishing physical healing occurred simultaneously. Therapists were amazed as they watched many symptoms fade for a variety of ailments going from migraine headaches to cancer.
EFT is a process that must be learned, but it is not difficult at all. The amazing thing is that it has even worked for skeptics! The secret for it to work is to be constant. Having said that, we must recognize that a few issues might be deeply rooted so the help of a trained EFT therapist could be needed in some cases.

“One day the medical profession will wake up and realize that unresolved emotional issues are the main cause of 85% of all illnesses. When they do, EFT will be one of their primary healing tools…. as it’s been for me.”
