Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Introduction

Visit http://www.Tapping.com for more Emotional Freedom Technique videos, EFT articles, and my E-Book.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a simple acupressure technique for releasing negative feelings.

You feel negative feelings in the body, so you have to go to the body to work on them. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is one way to do this.

You can release a negative feeling right now with this video. In this introductory video I explain a little bit about how Tapping works and take you through your first few sessions.


Q: How hard should I tap?
A: Tap lightly, just so that you feel it. The purpose of the tapping is to bring your attention to different parts of your body, it actually works if you just imagine tapping – as long as your attention is drawn to the right points.

Q: How can I be sure I am finding the right points?
A: Use two fingers to make sure you cover the points. Sometimes the point will ‘feel’ right, as if there is a slight indent in the skin or the point is particularly sensitive. It’s all connected so you don’t have to be 100% accurate.

Q: You have missed out points that Gary Craig teaches!
A: Yes. Feel free to tap those too, I left them out to keep the video simple and it seems to work fine without them. If you find the video doesn’t work for you, try tapping the additional points – around the top-middle of the head, and just under the armpit.

Q: Is the sequence important?
A: No. You can tap the points in any order. In fact you only need to tap one or two of the points for each particular feeling. It’s just you have no easy way to know which point so you might as well tap them all.

zensualgreenthank you so much for the clarity and simplicity of the way you explain tapping and its positive effects on body and emotions

I find that it works really good but my biggest problem is doing it in public places or around people. It’s usually at these times when it seems like tapping would help the most, but at the same time people are looking at you like you have ten heads..


This is a GREAT GREAT walk-through … thank you! You did a wonderful job of explaining this and helping people to “get it” … clear and concise and soooooo helpful!


Hi there,

I was looking for something that I could recommend to my clients as part of their follow-up care and was so happy to find your channel. I will be referring my clients here, and thoroughly enjoying it myself!

Thank you for your contribution to our world.

Reiki blessings.

In Light,



Thank you very much!!!! You saved me looots of worries & money…BRAVO.


Great stuff Magnus


guys, this is the real deal. After dealing with a fairly traumatic traveling experience two years ago I was instilled with a general fear to travel outside my city, I used EFT this yesterday morning before my flight and for the very first time in two years I actually enjoyed my trip!!!! To gray craig (founder of EFT) and mangu, you guys are ultimate saviours… EFT forever!!


Thank You…. This really works… I did this tapping today, $1200 cash all in $100 bills came to me unexpectedly. I had others ask to borrow money from me and I paid them both cash of what they asked me for and SOLD a house as well… I focused on releasing blockage of money flow. This works….enjoy jamie


wow,I swear I had this feeling like I was floading after I did it, I feel so free now after doing this, it was amazing.



dovetouchedWhat a gift you have given to us bless you! I too cannot afford the EFT classes and I suffer immensely with so many things it would take several pages to list. I followed this but attempted to focus on two things I was feeling. The first one left right away (anger at myself, I can’t even force it to surface) the second one a constant feeling of fear and heaviness in chest with breathing was more stubborn. I repeated to the end of the video and though I still have some it lessened quite a bit.
Ahbelinathank you. I heard about EFT but it never worked for me. I did the tapping with your video and i noticed some difference. Please can you tell me what the side of eye corresponds to lots of blocked energy there for me. Many thanks. Om Shanti
