This is not correct. Anybody can use the TFT techniques although it is more complex than EFT.
The British Thought Field Therapy Association can anything they want, I see no link or claim that they are a statutory body with enforcement rights.

All 'health care' practitioner who works with energy psychology should also think many times before wanting to have their particular discipline recognized. Once the regulatory agencies, accredited training schools and companies get their fingers on it we can say goodbye to 2 things, the average person being allowed to practice it for remuneration, and accessibility for those who are not very, very wealthy.

If you wish to practice the Callahan technique, you have to go through approved training.
Also, there are several complementary practices now available within the NHS, such as Acupuncture, Chiropractice, etc and you can bet your boots that they ARE regulated and that includes national standards of training. If you want to get Professional Practice Insurances and Local Authority Approval, you also need approved training and membership of the particular professional body. It's the only way to keep out the cowboys who do weekend courses. My ex has a very successful practice within the NHS and I know the hoops and the training programmes she undertook [ including TFT]

Acupuncture and chiropractice are both body invasive therapies in a physical sense. That is a different kettle of fish to purely energetic based practices which are largely self-administered.

Fair point. The problem always arises if a patient is being charged a fee, then all the regulations do come in. If you dont have the Liability Insurances and Approvals, it's like driving a car without insurance.

I'll tell you TFT works in minutes!!!!
Tapping correctly is amazing.

Great informative thread, Xan.

pre-dawn - thanks for the reply. I did find other issues arose in response to a non-financial issue.

Xan - OMG it actually worked. I feel as though I'm covered in little round bruises now. LOL But my anxiety has dropped considerably. I'm a convert.

pre-dawn and norseman...

You're right that this is not a regulation but was the original intention of Dr. Callahan who developed TFT.

Gary Craig provided the world with EFT - a more 'user-friendly' form - which has spread to millions of users and practitioners around the world, and has spurred the further development of other energy psychology methods. I venture to guess that through EFT's popularity it has also lead more therapists to learn the more formal method of TFT than would have otherwise.

As for the fees and licensing issue, this is for each individual to work out acording to their own state regulations... not a consideration for EFT or TFT per se. Most people learn it to use for themselves, their family members and friends... with great benefits and gratitude.

White Wolf... I'm so glad to hear you tried it... and found it really does work.

Little round bruises means you're tapping too hard.

The effect is not in physical force but moderate energetic stimulation of the acupoints. In fact, some people prefer to massage the points in a circular motion, with moderate pressure.
I most often use the touch-and-breathe method... holding my fingertip on each point with a deep breath, with the same releasing benefits.

This depends very much on the complexity of the issue, Wolf. Simple problems such as a headache or physical habit may disappear quickly, whereas issues with more emotional components and painful memories may take longer.

However, a key for effectiveness with EFT and other energy psychology methods is to get to the core emotions and events from the past and release those. This may come fairly easily from intuition, or may take some detective work and going down through the layers.

It's important to let go of expectations about how long it will take, and simply get to work on an issue and keep going - every day if necessary - until it is gone.

"emofree" was the website of Gary Craig, who has now retired. The new one is maintained by a group of EFT masters: http://EFTuniverse.com

Yes, you can learn the tapping points from an online blog... however, there's much more to using EFT effectively than merely knowing the tapping ponits. I repeat from my original article:


It’s important to learn to do EFT correctly from studying a book or watching a full length video or from an experienced person, rather than from a little YouTube blog.

An excellent book is “Discover the Power of Meridian Tapping“ by Patricia Carrington, and there are many others.

Here are two sites with basic explanations and instructions:
