What is Emotional Acupressure

Thought Field Therapy (TFT)

Thought Field Therapy was invented and developed by Dr. Roger Callahan after he discovered that the same energy meridian system outlined by the Chinese approximately 5,000 years ago and used in acupuncture could be used to successfully treat most psychological problems as well. TFT is a type of intervention I like to refer to as “emotional acupressure”.  Essentially, the therapy requires a person to focus on a thought or memory that causes emotional distress and tapping 5 to 7 times on each point in a sequence of meridian points determined by the emotions involved with the distress and then, if indicated, brief neurological exercises. This is repeated until the distress has been eliminated or greatly improved.  Each “round” of treatment can take up to 2 minutes, but usually requires only 45 seconds or less. 

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

EFT was created by Gary Craig who was one of the first students of Dr. Roger Callahan (The inventor of Thought Field Therapy). EFT is a meridian tapping intervention that is similar to the beginning level of Thought Field Therapy with a few differences.  The beginning level of TFT uses different tapping sequences to treat different problem categories (such as anxiety, anger, guilt, or grief) and EFT uses the same tapping sequence (or a short cut version) for all emotional and psychological issues. I like to think of EFT’s approach as “throwing the whole kitchen sink” at the problem by tapping on all 14 meridian points associated with emotional relief.  EFT’s approach is effective and allows someone with very little knowledge of meridian points to get started right away with an effective “emotional acupressure” technique for self—help.
