EFT -- Emotional Freedom Technique: Applications

EFT for Psychological and Physical Health Issues

The most frequently asked question from clients and students is.. "Can I use EFT for another problem other than anxiety?"

The answer is most definitely YES! See below for other problems and conflicts that EFT treatment has resolved.

EFT is natural healing at its best.

Anxiety Relief

EFT can successfully alleviate acute anxiety attacks, generalized anxiety, and the fear of public speaking. The duration of the problem does not seem to matter when it comes to EFT's effectiveness. However, some anxiety disorders are more complicated than others and have several layers that need attention.


In addition, EFT has an impressive record when it comes to neutralizing specific phobias such as claustrophobia, fear of needles, elevators, spiders etc. By tapping the endpoints of the meridians while tuning in to the problem, the "congested energy" is "metabolized" and the anxiety dissolves.

Guilt, Shame and Low Self-Esteem

EFT relieves guilt and shame by targeting specific events and beliefs underlying these feelings. Clients are empowered to mature emotionally by integrating what they have learned from past actions. The negative limiting beliefs we hold about ourselves (such as I'm not worthy, I don't deserve success, I'm not lovable ) that support poor self-esteem can be transformed with EFT.

Pain Control/Physical Ailments

Regardless of the medically documented structural damage shown in x-rays, MRI's or blood tests, EFT has been successful in alleviating pain and rebalancing disease in the body. It can accelerate healing, improve circulation of energy, reduce muscle tension and address the emotional states that may have contributed to the onset of any physiological condition. EFT success stories include treatment for migraines, chronic back pain, post-surgical pain/bleeding/swelling, fibromyalgia, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, PMS, allergies, hypoglycemia, sinus problems, hemorrhoids, lactose intolerance and more. Again, the duration of the problem is irrelevant when it comes to EFT's effectiveness.

Smoking Cessation

Smokers use cigarettes as a substance to tranquilize and quiet inner turmoil or anxiety. EFT can effectively eliminate the urge to smoke, alleviate physiological and psychological withdrawal symptoms, and neutralize environmental relapse triggers. All chemical dependency issues can be treated with EFT, including alcoholism, cocaine addiction, and dependency on prescription medications.

Sports Performance

Athletes are successfully using EFT to reduce muscle tension, conquer performance anxiety, and neutralize all other psychological blocks that may impede peak performance. When you watch professional athletes, you can see how their minds can trick them into reducing their effectiveness on the field, course or court. These athletes are trained beautifully and have all the skill necessary to compete at high levels. It is usually the stress, tension, fear of failure or success, and the pressure that interferes with their performance. EFT can help any professional or recreational athlete to improve their performance, especially under pressure.

Trauma Relief

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is characterized by intrusive and recurring thoughts, feelings and images associated with the original traumatizing event. EFT addresses the variety of aspects of the traumatic event by diluting the intensity of the recurring memory and neutralizing the trauma itself. The client can then emotionally reorganize and develop more adaptive attitudes and constructive behaviors to suit his or her current life. EFT also accelerates healing by initiating the forgiveness process.

Weight Loss

Food is often used as a tranquilizer to anesthetize deep anxiety and emotional pain. EFT can target and relieve feelings that drive urgent food cravings, compulsive overeating, and sabotaging behavior. In addition, EFT can relieve distorted body images and effectively prevent relapse weight gain after weight goals have been reached.

EFT has been clinically effective in thousands of cases, based on impressive new discoveries involving the body's subtle energies. There are numerous clinical cases and testimonials regarding dramatic relief for Trauma & Abuse, Panic & Anxiety, Fears & Phobias, DepressionAddictive Cravings, Children's Issues and hundreds of physical symptoms including pain relief, headaches, body pains and breathing difficulties using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).  Properly applied EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) has been proven to provide noticeable improvement or complete cessation of problems in over 80 percent of patients.  EFT the missing piece to the healing puzzle...."EFT often works where nothing else will."
Important note: While EFT has produced remarkable clinical results, it must still be considered to be in the experimental stage and thus practitioners and the public must take complete responsibility for their use of it. Further, Tom Masbaum and Linda Nyberg are not licensed health professionals and offer EFT as personal performance coaches, spiritual coaches and as EFT Practitioners. Those who want to discuss the use of EFT for a specific emotional or physical problem should either discuss this with Tom or Linda, find another EFT practitioner in your area, purchase one of the many books available on the subject to learn it yourself, read or download information from one of the many web sites filled with information on EFT, or purchase the 5 star training videos available through the link listed above. Where it is appropriate, qualified physicians should be consulted.
