Psychotherapy Dramatically Improved By New 'Acupuncture Without Needles' Technique
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) -- Stanford Engineer Gary Craig brings a new Acupuncture finding to the psychotherapy field. It is called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and is based on the discovery that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's "subtle energies."
The entire body of Chinese Medicine is centered around these minute energy flows but, until recently, their use for emotional issues has gone unnoticed. "Conventional psychotherapy takes a long time to do very little," says Craig, "and that's because psychologists have been looking in the wrong place for centuries."
According to Craig's findings, traumatic memories from the past cause a 'short circuit' in the free flow of the body's Chi (energy) and that is what causes current forms of anxiety, nervousness, depression, headaches, phobic responses and the like. "Once you realize this," maintains Craig, "psychotherapy becomes easy."
EFT repairs this short circuit by stimulating precise meridian points via tapping on them with the fingertips. This simple process can be learned and applied by anyone.
"I believe that acupuncture and EFT work well together," says Tashi Rabten, ND, LAc. At the Lhasa University School of Traditional Medicine in Tibet, where he received advanced degrees in medicine and acupuncture, Dr. Rabten attended over 4,000 hours of acupuncture classes and clinics. He is president of the International Tibetan Medical Association.
"It takes years of practice to become an expert acupuncturist," he says, "but with EFT you can learn to tap on key points in just a few minutes with no experience or training. Acupuncture is still the best way to treat specific health problems because it works deeply and precisely, but EFT is an excellent support therapy, and it helps bring lasting results by removing the emotional causes of many illnesses."
Dr. Rabten has witnessed the physiological changes EFT can produce first-hand. In one case, he held the wrist of a congestive heart failure patient to monitor his pulse, which was fast, weak, and erratic. Dr. Rabten asked the patient's wife to tap EFT points on her husband's face and torso, and within 20 seconds, the patient's pulse slowed and became strong and steady.
Hundreds of reports and case studies from EFT practitioners, including licensed acupuncturists and health care professionals, testify to the procedure's versatility. All of the conditions treated by conventional acupuncture are represented, along with psychological issues like post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias, anxiety, and psychosomatic illnesses. Even reading comprehension problems and golf games improve as a result of tapping.
Craig's EFT Manual provides all the basics for free and has been translated by volunteer practitioners into nine languages. His EFT website has risen from obscurity to the sixth most actively visited natural health site in the world.
