EFT Research – Positive Results
In the last twenty years the opportunities in both the physical and mental health arenas have opened up considerably to more whol-istic modalities and approaches to treating the person as a whole being. Because of public skepticism fostered over many years by the western medical influence, such disciplines as Energy Psychology and the use of special techniques such as EFT and NET have been required to prove themselves scientifically.
Energy psychology and specifically EFT research studies have proliferated, and as of 2014 the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology reported that over 60 research studies had been published on various modalities with only one study not reporting efficacy in the application of energy therapy techniques. This just covered the diverse field of Energy Psychology, researched by a pool of just more than 100 investigators in over 7 countries, and did not include the many other similar studies coming out of other disciplines such as chiropractic, naturopathy, kinesiology, acupuncture, traditional psychology and psychiatry, osteopathy, nutrition, and others. The results of the pre-2015 energy psychology studies were published in more than 15 different peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, and the APA journals Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training, and Review of General Psychology. New studies are appearing daily.
There have been over 25 research studies published in peer-reviewed journals by the ONE Foundation, showing the effectiveness of NET/ Neuro Emotional Technique, a facilitator-driven meridian-based modality used by over 8000 licensed health practitioners world-wide. These studies, some of which may have mentioned EFT in addition to NET, address conditions such as chronic pain, organ dysfunctions, allergies, neurological, musculoskeletal and immunological conditions, and the protocol distinguishes whether the issue is related to emotional, chemical, nutritional, or structural imbalances or blockages.
Many of the measures used in research done by various sources include such tools as: DNA microarrays (gene chips), MEGs (magnetoencephalograms), fMRI and PET scans and neurotransmitter and hormone assays, among others. As testing tools become more sophisticated they are better able to track and verify the minute, energetic shifts that happen regularly while using energy therapy techniques.
The word is out about using EFT, and it doesn’t take EFT research studies to prove to the hundreds of thousands of people world-wide attending the yearly Tapping World Summits that EFT does work!
