What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)?

By: Neall Stedmann D.C., N.D.

EFT involves tapping yourself on specific acupuncture points that are easily learned and, at the same time, stating out loud the particular problem that is being worked on. It works on the principle that ANY trauma you have had throughout your life, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, leaves a blockage somewhere in your energy pathways or, if you prefer, your electro-magnetic field. Anyway, it REALLY WORKS as I have proved with myself and many of my patients. What is amazing and scary to me is that once I have shown it to my chiropractic patients they have to see me far less often as they can "tap" their pains away.

By far its most important function is clearing up mental and emotional problems that have their beginnings, in a vast majority of cases, in childhood. This creates "writing on our walls" that is there for the rest of our lives unless we remove it by the use of EFT. How many times in your life have you reacted to a situation way out of proportion to what is actually happening? Until these writings are erased we will remain victims to our emotions. EFT is an extremely efficient way of not only removing these negative writings but also gives us a method of replacing them with positive ones.

EFT is also very effective with phobias such as fear of flying, fear of public speaking, fear of writing exams, etc. Athletes are using it to increase their performance level. How would you like to get rid of your golf hook and lower your score by at least 3 strokes?

In summary, there is no area in our life that cannot be enhanced and/or helped by EFT.

    Neall Stedmann D.C., N.D. Dr. Neall Stedmann cares for his patients at the Heritage Holistic Centre in Toronto, Ontario (online at www.EFTresults.com). He has been a health care practitioner (Chiropractor and Naturopath) for 35 years.

    Born and raised in Melbourne, Austrailia, Dr. Stedmann studied chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto, Ontario. He has practiced in England; Chilliwack, B.C.; Stratford, Ontario; and in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory where he became known as "The flying chiropractor of the Yukon."

    He worked for a short time with Dr.James D'Adamo, a naturopath and author of the book, "One Man's Food is another Man's Poison", which inspired him to take the logical step to become a naturopath. Dr. Stedmann graduated as a naturopath from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1984 and has been in private practice ever since.

    However, even though he found chiropractic and naturopathy to be of great help to his patients, there was something missing. He needed a more direct way of influencing their mental, emotional and spiritual needs. The final key in his development was discovering EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique.
