Several of you have responded to last week's piece about social phobia and one person's use of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to counter it. One woman has used EFT to help her get over emotional upsets, headaches and bad memories. She's also used it on 40 other people who have overcome motion sickness, a fear of mice and spiders, aches and pains, and even an aversion to tomatoes. It works, it's easy to do - and it's free, she says.
Visit the website (http:www.emofree.com) to download a free manual. Several others suggest Thought Field Therapy, developed by a Dr Roger Callahan. The client thinks about his or her fear, and is shown acupressure points to tap while doing so. It sounds remarkably like EFT. Perhaps they are related.
