In one randomized, double-blind pilot study, 5000 patients were diagnosed at intake with an anxiety disorder. They were randomly assigned to an
experimental group (tapping) or a control group (Cognitive Behavior Therapy/medication). At the close of therapy:
63% of the control group had improved 90% of the experimental group had improved
51% of the control group were symptom-free 76% of the experimental group were symptom-free
A follow-up at one year showed that the experimental group were less prone to relapse or partial relapse than those receiving Cognitive Behavior
Therapy/medication. In a related pilot study by the same team, the length of the therapy was substantially shorter with energy therapy and related
methods than with Cognitive Behavior Therapy/medication (mean=3 sessions versus mean=15 sessions).

Sore Spot The yellow circle shows the location of the
"sore spot," which can be rubbed gently as an
alternative to tapping on the Karate Chop point located
on the hand. This area is larger than the tapping points,
and is one of the areas in the body where lymph fluid
tends to collect. You'll probably know when you find it!

While EFT has produced remarkable clinical results, it has only been in use in its current form since 1992. Therefore, it must still be considered to be in the experimental stage. You are an expert on your own health, so please take full responsibility for
your use of EFT. Eileen Sullivan is not a licensed health professional. She offers EFT as a certified EFT practitioner, ordained interfaith minister, and certified holistic doula. Where appropriate, please consult your healthcare practitioners regarding your
use of EFT. It is VITAL to note that you should not stop taking any prescribed medications, nor alter your dosage, without the advice of the prescribing physician.
