The  State of EFT Research
EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals. These include distinguished top-tier journals such as Journal of Clinical Psychology, the APA journals Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training and Review of General Psychology, and the oldest psychiatric journal in North America, the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease.

EFT research includes investigators affiliated with many different institutions.

In the US, these range from Harvard Medical School, to the University of California at Berkeley, to City University of New York, to Walter Reed Military Medical Center, to Texas A&M University, to JFK University. Institutions in other countries whose faculty have contributed to EFT research include Lund University (Sweden), Ankara University (Turkey), Santo Tomas University (Philippines), Lister Hospital (England), Cesar Vallejo University (Peru), and Griffith University (Australia).

The wide variety of institutions, peer-reviewed journals, investigators, and settings that have, in independent research, found EFT to be efficacious, are one indication of the breadth of existing research results.

The next frontier of EFT research is replication of the studies that have not yet been replicated, and investigations into the physiological changes that occur during EFT, using such tools as DNA micro-arrays (gene chips), MEGs (magnetoencephalograms), fMRIs, and neurotransmitter and hormone assays. A partial listing of EFT research is provided below.

Outcome Studies
Outcome studies compare outcomes, e.g. levels of pain, degree of depressive symptoms, either between two groups, or between the same people before and after EFT. The headings below tell you, in alphabetical order, the conditions for which data was gathered in the trials below them.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Imagine for a moment a healing modality that, in less than 20 years, has become highly valued by thousands of medical doctors, psychologists, chiropractors, physical therapists and other members of the healing profession around the world. 

Imagine also that this technique involves no drugs or equipment, has no harmful side effects and provides an almost immediate reduction of intensity and symptom relief.   What if the technique was so simple to learn that even a child could learn the basics in a matter of minutes? 

It may sound too good to be true, but such a healing modality does exist: EFT.
