Thought Field Therapy

Thought Field Therapy (TFT) utilises the acupuncture meridian system to diagnose and treat psychological problems. TFT is based on the idea that a thought produces a specific electrical field, and by tapping on various acupuncture meridian points in a specific sequence, the energetic source of a problem can be eliminated. The meridian points are based on the theory in Oriental medicine that energy (chi) in the body, flows along meridian lines.

During a TFT session, clients are asked to think about a distressing situation and to then rate the distress associated with the thought. Depending on emotions experienced, and meridians affected, the therapist will prescribe a specific sequence of tapping points for the client. Performing the required tapping sequence, whilst focusing on the problem at hand, is believed to clear the emotional blockage, allowing energy to flow freely through the affected meridians, thus eliminating distress.

TFT has been used to treat psychological and emotional problems including anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma, grief, and insomnia.
