Science & Research

It’s an exciting time to be working with EFT. Although the technique is almost 30 years old now, we’re beginning to see more and more research that explains just why it’s so effective. It’s important not just for our own understanding, but also for those who are doubtful about the efficiency of this amazing technique.

As with many other healing modalities that draw on ancient wisdom and/or cutting edge insights into mind and body health, EFT has been overlooked and even ridiculed by many in the world of modern Western medicine. To them, it’s a sham that’s simply too good to be true. Even thousands of stories from people around the world about just how tapping has changed their lives have not been enough to prompt the skeptics to reconsider.

That’s why this research is so very important.

Dr. Church is one of the pioneers in the field of epigenetics, which explores how our DNA is modified by outside stimuli. His book, The Genie in Your Genes, is a modern classic that highlights dozens of studies that show how our emotions impact our growth and health. He continues to perform and document similar research into Emotional Freedom Techniques at his immensely popular website, EFT Universe.

Dr. Feinstein is a noted clinical psychologist who has served on the faculty of The John Hopkins University School of Medicine. In addition to his numerous groundbreaking books in the fields of energy medicine and psychology, he continues to explore breakthrough research into EFT through his Energy Psychology website
