The TFT Foundation has used these procedures around the world from Africa and Kosovo following wars and genocide to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after their earthquake. They have completed four studies demonstrating the effectiveness.
There are volunteer practitioners available by phone and local for those who need assistance following the simple tapping procedures on the web site. The method uses the ancient acupressure meridian system to help relieve the overwhelming emotional pain and anxiety associated with traumatic events. It has been used safely on children for decades and can provide relief for survivors and family members.
Thousands of disaster sufferers and victims of war have been helped using the TFT technique. The TFT outcomes are recognized in the International Journal of Emergency Mental Health in recent Rwandan genocide recovery studies.
The TFT Foundation recommends that first responders, family members and survivors go to the TFT Foundation trauma relief website where they can learn the technique by video and in written form in 11 different languages including American Sign Language. There’s no cost for this service. The TFT Foundation is a non-profit organization.
