What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a medical label for a long term condition that causes widespread pain and tiredness.

What is Energy Tapping – TFT and EFT?

Energy tapping techniques, such as Emotion Freedom Technique (EFT) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT), were originally developed in the 1980, and are use widely by therapists around the globe. However, they have yet to be adopted by the medical fraternities.

It is strange that such a widely used set of techniques has not received funding for scientific research and peer reviews in the way that pharmaceuticals have.

Energy tapping uses physical tapping on different parts of the body, associated with Chinese meridians. TFT uses specific tapping algorithms for specific psychological issues, whilst EFT uses more generic patterns. To be effective, tapping also requires the person’s focus to be directed towards the right thoughts and feelings.
