EFT Tapping Research – More Effective and at Least 5 Times Faster
The first large-scale preliminary clinical trial of EFT Tapping Therapy is reported in some detail in Energy Psychology Interactive and summarized here.
Approximately 5,000 patients diagnosed at intake with an anxiety disorder were randomly assigned to an experimental group (EFT) or a control group (Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with medication, which is traditionally considered the therapy of choice).
Here are the results:
Outcome Comparisons with 5,000 Anxiety Patients at Close of Therapy
Significant Improvement: CBT/Medication-63%; EFT-90%
Complete Relief From Symptoms: CBT/Medication-51%; EFT-76%
Average Number of Sessions: CBT/Medication-15; EFT-3
At one-year follow-up, the patients receiving EFT treatments were less prone to relapse or partial relapse than those receiving CBT/medication, as indicated by the independent raters assessments and corroborated by brain imaging and neurotransmitter profiles.
Please note: EFT was not only significantly more effective, it also needed far fewer sessions (5 times faster).
My personal success rate is over 98% getting significant relief, and I find EFT to typically be 10 to 20 times faster than other methods.
Note: According to Dr. Bob Schwartz, PhD, the executive director of The Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, there are actually:
More than 60 peer reviewed studies, 20 double blind randomized studies, proving a success rate of 98%!

How To Tap
The EFT Tapping Points
EFT is a psychological form of acupressure. There are no needles involved in the process. EFT involves tuning into the problem and then tapping on a specific set of acupoints (also known as meridian energy points) and re-balancing the energy.
See the tapping points diagram. The names of the points starting at the top of the head and going down the body are:
This diagram shows you the points that we will use to clear all energy disturbances with EFT. The points address all 14 meridians due to the fact that some of the points are located at the intersection of two meridians. Since we are tapping on all meridians when we do EFT, we don’t have to worry about which meridians have the disturbance in them. We are tapping on all of the meridians anyway.
How EFT Tapping Therapy Works
How to Tap on the Points
The Tapping Procedure
Come up with a short phrase used to refer to the memory or problem, the more specific the better. We call this the “reminder” phrase because we will use it during the tapping process to stay focused on the memory or current problem. The way to create a reminder phrase for a memory is to give the memory a title, like the title of a movie. (For more information on creating effective reminder phrases, see the section on Reminder Tapping Phrases and Using EFT in Kay Gire-Jones’ EFT Introductory Manual.)
Repeat steps 4 through 6 to apply another EFT basic recipe to the memory or painful emotions. However, if your pain level came down at all, then we change the wording of the set-up affirmation and reminder phrase a little bit to acknowledge the progress that has been made.
The set-up affirmation becomes:
“Even though I still have some _____________, I deeply and completely accept myself.”
The reminder phrase becomes:
You keep applying the EFT Basic Recipe to your painful memory or emotions until the pain level, including all of the associated emotions, goes down to zero. At this point, that memory will be completely healed or your in the moment emotions relieved.
Using this minimal version of EFT, you will tend have a 40 – 50% success rate. There is more to learn about EFT in order to get much better success rates (at this point it’s rare for EFT not to work for me).
