Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) was created to help fight stress. Several studies were performed to examine the potency of EFT and many of these concluded that it really works. Critics say, nonetheless, that a few of the studies are not reliable.
An article published at Natural Health Sherpa cites a study that shows that EFT can be effective in addressing "pain, anxiety, depression, vitality, social function, mental health, and physically related performance problems."
The study was conducted on 86 women who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia. They were divided into two groups and the EFT group showed statistically better results compared to the control group. However, the study was conducted on a relatively small group to be conclusive. Further study is needed.
EFT is something that you might want to try if you have fibromyalgia. It works by tapping or rubbing the so-called meridian points or acupuncture points in the body. EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques - and MTT - Meridian Tapping Techniques is probably the fastest-growing therapy technique ever - for self help or with experienced practitioners. It combines ancient oriental perspective and learning about our energy body and current ideas of cells, body energy and quantum physics in improving our well being and health. It can be used in therapy, or as a self-help tool. Learn the basics points here
A healthy level of skepticism is nice. But it won't hurt to try.
