Prabha explains EFT: “Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as emotional acupuncture, works gently and effortlessly to release the negative emotions and beliefs that underlie most of our problems and pain. EFT was developed by Gary Craig in the US and has been effective in helping thousands of people heal from both emotional (fears and phobias, stage fright, anger, guilt, addictions etc) and physical problems (chronic pain, asthma, high blood pressure etc.). EFT’s power lies in its simplicity – tapping on acupuncture points while tuning into a problem one wants to heal is all that it takes.
