What is EFT Therapy?
The Origins and Background
EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques, is often referred to as “psychological acupressure” by combining talk therapy with tapping on energy points on the face and body. The technique is gaining fast acceptance around the world with health practitioners, counselors, healers and scientists. It will soon be in the school systems in parts of Australia.
The discovery statement in EFT is that any negative emotion is a blockage in the energy system also referred to as meridians in Chinese Medicine. We are providing EFT therapy in Hong Kong with fantastic results.
These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviors unconsciously blocking us from having a harmonious life. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and or physical and include feelings of anxiety, addiction, depression, lack of confidence and self-esteem.

It is also now finally widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease and for this reason these techniques are being extensively used on physical issues, including chronic illness with often astonishing results.
These techniques are being accepted more within the medical and psychiatric including psychotherapies and healing disciplines.
Current scientific research studies show how EFT can reduce stress response and changes in the brain. One study by Dr. Feinstein show how EFT can create positive changes in the brain from trauma and Dr. Dawson Church demonstrated decreased cortisol levels (stress hormones) by 24-50% compared to a control group of those who used talk therapy or those who didn’t receive any treatment.
An EFT treatment involves the use of fingertips rather than needles to tap on the end points of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive and works on the ethos of making change as simple and as pain free as possible.
In the short time since it’s development by Gary Craig in the 1990’s, EFT has provided thousands of people with relief from all manner of problems and conditions, often in startlingly quick time. In fact, Gary Craig says the downside of EFT is in its simplicity. Many people often believe the treatment must be difficult, uncomfortable or require medication to heal. EFT is even effective for someone with a long history of problems.
The diversity of successful treatments have ranged from trauma and abuse, phobias, self sabotaging behavior patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of anxiety and depression, addictions, physical illness, to name but a few.
EFT restores awareness and trust in the natural healing abilities of our mind and body, providing ground-breaking opportunities to achieving physical and emotional well-being in a faster time frame.
Because the techniques are so simple, they can be used as a self-help tool which empowers people to actively contribute to their own healing and development process. These techniques do not discredit the medical and psychotherapeutic professions, but rather serve to contribute to a holistic healing process.

I feel blessed having had the chance to be introduced to EFT and Matrix Reimprinting. Not only did it help myself to improve my well being in all aspects of my life, but I also can help others to improve the quality of their lives. This is an amazing tool we can always go back to when I we have the feeling that there is no way out. Caroline Rhodes is a very experienced and professional EFT and MR practitioner who I only can recommend.Ling YeeAromatherapist, Hong Kong
I am new to EFT, but not the therapy. Within three short EFT sessions with her, Falguni had me accessing levels of awareness and making deep connections that I’ve never had in any of my previous work. Now I tap all the time! And am so excited to see what new things surface.N.K.Hong Kong
Caroline’s EFT & MR courses are interesting and engaging; a perfect blend of learning, practicing and experiencing these life-changing techniques. EFT is such a fantastic tool to have at my fingertips every day. I started by using it with myself and my family and since I started integrating it with my counselling practice, all my clients benefit from this therapeutic technique. Attending Caroline’s EFT & MR courses literally changed my life for the better.FaluHong Kong
My sessions with Falu have helped me realize how much fear, stress, anxiety I have suppressed and carried with me through my entire life, which in turn have manifested into my recent physical symptoms, heart issues, blood pressure, thyroid problems, & even MS that I’ve had for sometime now.S.Z.New York
Falu has shown me to tap when I feel any kind of negative emotions like stress, fear, anxiety even physical pain whether it be my heart palpitations or my thyroid or any any other symptom I am feeling. I clearly feel a shift now, not just in my mental state but also physically, when I use EFT.
I cannot thank her enough for healing me through this rough patch & helping me come out a stronger more positive & happier person!
Falguni’s approach to body/mind work is truly integrative of all her skills and knowledge. She works with an intuitive response to your needs and issues. Using breath, EFT and talk therapy, she supports you in moving through the multiple layers of mind until you can reach the core of your own patterning. Her technique offers you greater insight and immediate release from old self-narratives as you gain greater access to your own sense of agency. I have been greatly changed by each session with Falguni and would recommend her even to seasoned practitioners.SarahHong Kong
I really enjoyed EFT Levels 1 & 2. Caroline showed how easy it is to use EFT on anything: physical pain, emotions, money, phobias, cravings and much more. EFT for Parenting helped me achieve a shift as parent. I am now calmer, more rational and I tap my children regularly for all sorts of issues, ranging from being afraid of the dark to exams (piano, math). This course is for anyone who would like more out of life and for those who want more skills in parenting. Thank you so much, Caroline!L.C.Hong Kong
Falguni’s work with EFT is exceptional, on my recent visit to HK I had several sessions with her and the results were no less than amazing! I have suffered with Tinnitus for many years and after just a few sessions with Falguni where she was able to tap into the root cause of my symptoms, they have virtually disappeared! I would recommend Falguni without hesitation.J. C.U.K
I worked with Falguni for over a year at Christian Action (Refugee and Asylum Seeker Support). She not only gave the vulnerable clients I referred very attentive support, I also had a session with her. During that session I felt safe, supported and that Falguni was completely confidential. I felt my clients were in excellent hands after that experience.Taraka Sticha (Bach Ed, MA SW and PG Arts Therapy)Hong Kong
Hi Falguni,VirginiaHong Kong
This is my testimony...
I feel a lot more confident in having natural childbirth after attending the EFT for pregnancy. The visualisation technique is a very nice way to connect with my baby. It brings joy to me every time when I visualise a health baby inside my tummy.
My life felt as if it was in turmoil. I had been told I had breast cancer and the words alone sent a fear through my body that made me feel so weak ... I felt as if my body collapsed and I was unable to cope with this news.. I attended EFT sessions with Falguni and I felt my mind ease as I learned how to address my fears and actually take control and move my thoughts in a more positive and healing way.. my attitude to what was happening to me also changed for the better and life became normal again for me.M.R.Hong Kong
I am so happy and eternally grateful for EFT and I think it is something we should all do as there is nothing harmful in the sessions only the good that it does to enhance our lives.
It is completely safe and there are no known negative side effects.
Distraction is “something that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else”. EFT requires a complete focus on the problem or issue throughout the session.
Sometimes people are resistant to focusing on the negative while tapping. Either for fear of feeling the feeling, or fearing this will attract more negativity, or a similar reason.
But one is already feeling these feelings. By identifying then vocalising them, one is bringing up that energy in the body and clearing the negative emotions, instead of suppressing them and having them subconsciously run one’s life. Expressing the negative statements serves to clear them energetically from the body-mind system.
We specifically focus on the negative feeling to tune into the problem, and continue to stay with the negative till it is released.
Affirmations are used in EFT to find out what the limiting beliefs may be, by finding if a negative belief follows the affirmation. For example, “I am now earning $100,000 every month… but I have no idea how to make that kind of money!!”
Affirmations only really work when we believe them, and if we already believed them in the first place, we might not need to use them!
EFT’s results are usually permanent.
When a problem seemingly reappears, that is generally caused by a different “aspect” of the original problem, showing up at a later time. At which point we simply use EFT again for this new aspect. After all aspects and specific events have been addressed, in due course, the problem usually goes away completely and does not return.
Although Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is not yet widely accepted as a formally validated scientific technique, it is rapidly gaining support among therapists and medical practitioners.
Our workshops and trainings are intended to promote awareness of the benefits of learning and applying EFT – however, participants must take full responsibility for their use of it. This material is for your general knowledge only and is not a substitute for traditional medical attention, counselling, therapy or advice from a qualified health care professional. Neither EFT nor the information here is intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or disorder.
If you experience any unusual symptoms when practising the technique, you should seek the advice of a health care professional. Although the results of our research indicate that many people benefit from the use of EFT in terms of fears, phobias, food cravings, weight loss, anxiety and depression, the responses to the technique are individual. A lack of result or progress may mean you need professional assistance.
If you have any concerns regarding your health or mental state, we recommend you seek advice or treatment from a qualified, licensed health care professional. Before making any dietary changes or discontinuing, reducing or increasing prescription medications, it is recommended that you first consult with a doctor, pharmacist or other qualified medical or health professional.
