EFT tapping stands for Emotional Freedom Technique tapping. EFT tapping is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease.
Stanford Engineer Gary Craig developed EFT tapping as a self-help tool for people struggling with painful emotions that traditional medical and psychological treatments had been unable to help.
It is said that intense negative emotions, if not processed and dealt with, can get stuck in our energy body. These negative emotions then color our view of the world, in turn attracting more of the same kind. Long term stress and bottled up emotions lead to diseases.
This is not to say that we shouldn’t feel any negative emotions or be in denial about hurtful emotions. We just need to find a healthy way to experience and expunge negative emotions so they don’t get stored in our mind-body system. That’s where EFT tapping comes into picture.

A modern explanation about why EFT tapping works is based on a part of the brain called the amygdala. EFT tapping, by the virtue of gentle tapping movements, calms our fight-or-flight response. That in turn allows the rational part of the brain to conjure solutions that were not available to it when it was subjected to stress and negative emotions.
