Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an evidenced-based practice which is grounded in the integrative field of energy psychology and integrates components of cognitive behavioral therapies, exposure therapy and body stimulation of acupressure points on the face and body. Because of EFT's acupressure component, it is commonly known as “tapping.” EFT begins with a simple statement of the issue of concern, called the “Set-up Statement.” The format used is “Even though I have a problem (e.g., stress, anxiety, etc.), I deeply and completely accept myself.” The first part of the statement is the exposure piece. The cognitive piece is the self-acceptance part of the statement. As this statement is being said, and repeated, tapping on acupressure points occurs. There are eight acupressure points on the face and upper body that have an effect that specifically affects stress reduction. EFT has been clinically proven to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
