More specifically, it is a technique that combines tapping and suggestion methods: while the therapist practices tapping , the patient remains mentally focused on the problem.

EFT (Emotional release technique) and Its Origin
The emotional release technique is a recent therapy that combines traditional psychology with Oriental Medicine and Kinesiology.
The Emotional Release Technique (EFT) has been used to treat a wide variety of problems, including:
- Worries, fears, anxieties, phobias and traumatic experiences.
- Stress, tiredness, and exhaustion.
- Will, resentment, irritability, changes in mood, sadness, and depression.
- Insecurity, low self-esteem, and relationship difficulties.
There are combinations of acupuncture points, which he called algorithms, which stimulated them to eliminate these phobias and traumas in very few sessions.
Fundamentals of EFT
To understand and believe in the technique of emotional release or EFT as one of the most important branches of energy psychology, we have to realize that we are in the era of quantum physics. Everything is energy that is transmitted in the form of waves and, that these waves can be neutralized with other waves of different frequency.
The emotional release or EFT technique combines body, mind, diagnosis, and treatment. At the beginning of treatment,
PATIENTS BRING THEIR PROBLEM TO CONSCIOUSNESS BY STIMULATING BIOENERGY SYSTEMS, CONCENTRATING ON THE SENSATIONS THAT TRIGGER THAT PHOBIA OR PAIN.
Once the alteration has been verified, a specific series of points of the body are stimulated with repetitive pressure with the fingers and in an orderly manner and, in a matter of a few seconds or minutes, the patient will be able to appreciate a decrease or even the annulment of said discomfort.
Emotional Release Technique
It is based on this phrase: “The main contributors to most physical ailments and diseases are our unresolved negative emotions.”
But, what is tapping and how is it applied in the technique of emotional release?
It is the method used to balance energy. Try to make punches with a certain pressure, but without being painful, rhythmically (2 or 3 strokes per second) with the tip of the index finger and thumb, on strategic points. These blows send signals to the brain, producing a rearrangement of the organism, restoring.
The strategic points are connected with the main meridians (energy channels) used in acupuncture. It is not necessary to obsess to look for to the millimeter where is the zone to strike since the tip of the fingers has a surface much greater to the point to stimulate.
The points to stimulate during the session would be the following ones, and they can be stimulated as much the ones of the right part as those of the left or to exchange it:
- At the beginning of the eyebrow, just above the side of the nose (Eye Brow)
- Above the bone, next to the outer edge of the eye (Side of the Eye)
- In the bone under the eye (Under the Eye)
- In the area between the lower part of the nose and the edge of the upper lip (Under the Nose)
- At mid-distance between the tip of the chin and the edge of the lower lip (Chin)
- Point where the sternum, clavicle and first rib (Bone Collar)
- Lateral of the body, in the line of the nipple in the man and in the line of the bra, in the women (Under the Arm).
- In the fingers, at the base of the nail, in the corner closest to us
- On the edge of the hand, at the point with which we would hit a karate.
- On the back of the hand, the point that would form an equilateral triangle with the knuckles of the little finger and the ring.
