What is EFT Tapping?

EFT Tapping is a gentle, self-help tool using fingertips to tap on specified points.

In addition to its use with unhealthy emotions, it also reduces chronic pain, resolves addictive cravings, supports weight control, removes food and chemical sensitivities, and improves health and vitality.

Based on research, EFT Tapping meets American Psychological Association (APA) Division 12 criteria for evidence-based practice on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), phobias, generalized anxiety, and depression.

It is accepted in the Veteran’s Administration (VA) for veterans with war trauma.

Our Ethical Statement

The Grand Vision:

As a heart-centered community, we believe SEFT has real potential to improve the world. Those who tap to eliminate their own fears, anger, hate, and shame cannot help but evolve into gentler, kinder people. They naturally transform into authentic, loving versions of themselves, each moving toward their greatest potential.

As the movement continues to grow, we believe everyday miracles will become the “norm.” Wow- can you imagine the profound benefit this will create for humanity? We are truly excited and joyful for you to join us on this journey!


EFT Tapping involves tapping with one’s fingertips on specified points of the face and upper body while focused on specific memories or thoughts. It has been safely done by thousands of people over the last two decades and concerns are rare. Since it is a self-tool, though, it is essential for you to take responsibility for your personal use of this method.

Ethical Statement:

  • EFT Tapping does not have any known contraindications or negative side effects.

  • As SEFT Practitioners, our role is to educate. Our goal is to teach you a self-tool. You must assume your own responsibility for its use.

  • If you have any reservations, do not tap.

  • If you have been diagnosed with mental illness or suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), you may want to work with a certified EFT or SEFT Practitioner. For vulnerable populations, all forms of tapping should be under the direction of a licensed mental health professional.

  • Emotional distress often comes off in layers. As one symptom dissolves, it is replaced by a new symptom. For example, emotion can shift from fear to sadness. Or, a memory can be replaced by a different memory. This causes the stress level to go down and up as the layers evolve. It seems as if the process is not working, so some people stop tapping. This is a mistake. For the safest and most effective results, whenever you are emotional, you should keep tapping.

  • This is an essential principle, so it will be stated again: If you are emotional, always keep tapping.

We take all ethical concerns seriously. If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us.

Happy tapping!
