How Meridian – also known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping works.

Meridian - EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique Tapping Chart How does Meridian (EFT) tapping work and where are these tapping points?

According to Gary Craig – founder of EFT:

“Emotional Freedom Techniques” breathes fresh air into the emotional therapy process by borrowing from the Chinese meridian system. While acupuncture, acupressure and the like have been primarily focused on physical ailments, EFT stands back from this ancient process and points it directly at emotional issues. It is dramatically different from conventional therapy practices and that is why it often works where nothing else will.” EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture except we don’t use needles.


Instead, we use a simple two pronged process wherein we (1) “tune in” to specific issues while (2) stimulating certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. Properly done, EFT balances any disturbances in the meridian system and thus reduces the conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours. Further, the process is very portable and learnable by almost everyone. No special education is required. Even children have produced beginner’s benefits with it.”

A more detailed explanation of EFT

To understand how EFT works, it is first necessary to recognise that the human body is composed of different “systems”
These are the circulatory, respiratory, nervous, muscular/skeletal, endocrine, immune, digestive and genito-urinal.
For these systems to work in harmony they have to be connected by the Energy System
Human body - organs

What is this Energy?

All physical things are composed of energy vibrating at different frequencies.

Can we see this energy using scientific equipment?

 Oh yes, we can!

Modern GDV instruments developed by Prof Korotkov use glass electrodes and their recordings are highly reproducible in a wide range of environmental conditions.  GDV is now used in more than 20 countries.

Using reproducible recording techniques we can focus on the INFORMATION encoded in stimulated electro-photonic images.

GDV images – fingertips relate to the body

The glow in certain sectors around human fingers correlates with performance of particular organs and systems of the human body.
GDV-Aura enables to determine the degree of harmony in functioning of internal organs and systems and enables medical practitioners to spot the weakest aspects of the human body/mind system within seconds.

Is that my Energy?

To understand more about the existence of the body’s energy systems you can try the following experiment……

Rub your hands together then begin to move them apart slowly.
Bring them together and apart several times until you can feel a “pull” between them.
This is some of the energy from your body.

Though this energy ball is only visible to people who have trained themselves to use their peripheral vision to see energy it is nevertheless very real. A little bit of practise and you’ll soon see energy. It is all around you, and every object in creation has an energy field.

Body Static

Other experiments might include rubbing a balloon on your hair or shuffling your feet along a carpet. Each will produce static.
For messages to reach the brain from any part of the body there needs to be an energy system along which they travel.

EFT is based on the discovery that imbalances in the body’s energy system have profound effects on personal psychology.

Where is this energy?

So the energy in the body is like electrical energy.
It travels round the body along invisible lines called meridians.
This is also the energy measured in EEG and ECG tests.

EFT is based on the discovery that imbalances in the body’s energy system have profound effects on personal psychology.

The cause of ALL negative emotions is within the body’s energy system.
Between the distressing memory and the negative emotion is the disruption of the body’s energy system


Correction of imbalance

Correcting these imbalances can often lead to immediate and lasting relief.

How is EFT carried out?

EFT is simple to apply and can be carried out in its most basic format by anyone who has read the manual.  To download a short EFT guide please click on the link below:

However this is the tip of the iceberg and a much greater application is possible with training.

The tapping points

Meridian - EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique Tapping Chart

What do I do?

Firstly scan your body for any discomfort,
decide what you need to work on and give it a rating out of 10.
1 = just noticeable
10 = unbearable.
Keep your number in mind so you can measure any changes.

The EFT Setup Statement

A typical set-up statement might be something like this:-
“Even though I have this  ___________   I accept myself”
“Even though I have this ____________   I love and value myself”
“Even though I have this ____________   I’m okay”
You should feel comfortable with whatever positive statement you make.

The EFT Sequence

The set-up statement is repeated 3 times while tapping on the  “Karate Chop point”
Once the set-up is complete the statement can be reduced to a reminder phrase.

E.g.   If you are working on   “this throbbing headache that I get every month”   it can be reduced to   “This headache”  on the points.
