A Brief History

Over 6,000 years ago, traditional Chinese medicine using acupuncture and acupressure in Japan developed under the premise that ‘disease is caused by disruptions in the body’s energy flow’.

Energy meridians were identified and related to various organs in the body.  Certain emotions can effect certain organs

As recently as the 1980s, Dr Roger Callahan developed his Thought Field Therapy, which is a combination of Dr George Goodheart’s Muscle Testing, and Dr John Diamond’s Behavioural Kinesiology (affirmations on acupressure points).  A unique tapping routine was formulated through a complex process of muscle testing for each emotional issue.

This was further refined in 1990 by engineer Gary Craig, who condensed these Thought Field Therapy tapping routines into one routine for all and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping) evolved.

By using Gary’s technique, the client is able to cover the entire body with one sequence and can also easily learn to treat themselves.
