EFT, Tapping, Veterans and PTSD

EFT Tapping is gaining more and more momentum and recognition.

–> What is EFT? What is Tapping? <–

As society shifts and health care costs continue to rise, more people are turning to preventative and holistic “medicine”.

Tapping is an “up and coming” area, and the publicity EFT is receiving for the success with veterans and PTSD is only increasing the awareness (of both issues).

The science behind EFT or “tapping”

A recent trail examined the effects of EFT on veterans with PTSD. Patients received 6 hour-long EFT sessions over the course of a month.

At the end of the 6 sessions, the EFT subjects and control group subjects were again tested. The EFT patients had significantly reduced psychological distress and PTSD symptom levels.

In addition, 90% of the EFT group no longer met PTSD clinical criteria, compared with 4% in the control group.

The results are consistent with that of other published reports showing EFT’s efficacy in treating PTSD and comorbid symptoms and its long-term effects.

The benefits of EFT are truly endless. Below is a list of numerous benefits- but it’s just the beginning!

EFT can help significantly reduce or eliminate:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Anger and frustration
  • Depression
  • All kinds of fears and phobias
