Thought Field Therapy (EvTFT) is a groundbreaking and paradigm challenging
psychotherapy that utilizes the acupuncture meridian system (If you
dont know what that means it's ok doctors don't either!) to diagnose
and treat psychological problems. In EvTFT, the disruptive emotions
(negative or positive) are alleviated through gentle activation of
designated acupuncture points, which neutralize or eliminate the energetic
causes of the experienced problem.
*Statement paraphrased from official EvTFT site.
is based on an acupuncture system that was derived thousands of years
ago by the Chinese. The Chinese believed that by stabbing needles
into peoples skin at certain locations, they could be cured from some
illnesses and feel better about their life. This was based on a view
of life that surrounds around Qi (ch'i). There are no empirical evidence
to support the effects of acupuncture in healing illness, and especially
for helping in psychological problems. It doesn't work for physical
illness, and it doesn't work for mental illness.
