Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine: acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and "Thought-Field" therapy. It is best known through Gary Craig's EFT Handbook, published in the late 1990's, and related books and workshops by a variety of teachers. During a typical EFT session, the person will focus on a specific issue while the therapist taps on "end points of the body's energy meridians." Advocates say that the technique may be used to treat a wide variety of physical and psychological symptoms, and that it can also be used as a simple form of self-administered therapy. What to Expect: EFT is a therapeutic procedure that consists of the participant rating the emotional intensity of their reaction on the "Subjective Units of Distress Scale" (SUDS) - a Likert scale for subjective measures of distress - calibrating, then repeating an orienting affirmation while rubbing or tapping specific points on the body. Some practitioners incorporate eye movements or other tasks. The emotional intensity is then re-scored and repeated until no changes are noted in the emotional intensity.
