“EFT” (Emotional Freedom Technique) was originally conceived by a Stanford Engineer, Gary Craig, well over 40 years ago. It was then developed further by Roger Callahan and led to many of the forms used all over the world today. EFT is a very simple and effective technique that is easily learned. By tapping or massaging specific acupuncture points on the face and torso, emotional and physical blockages are brought up and released.
The patient typically experiences first an immediate physical release of tension, followed by the lessening of emotional stress. The client is then able to reframe the issue and work with it again if necessary, but it will be far less emotionally laden each time afterwards. Depending on the issue, many times only 1-2 repetitions of 20-30 minutes are necessary for the issue to resolve.
EFT can be used for a variety of issues both physical and emotional. Some popular uses are: weight loss, smoking cessation, fears and phobias, money issues, anxiety and depression. The possibilities are literally endless.
EFT is not only a safe therapy but quite desirable, as the client is in complete control of the process. He/she can control what is being said during the tapping process, and can monitor the responses being evoked as well. Once learned, it is a valuable tool that one can use at any future time. In contrast to many forms of talk therapy, EFT can bring issues to resolution in a shorter time frame. Dr. Milau also uses EFT to complement traditional psychotherapy, often allowing for bigger breakthroughs.
