Evidence Based Emotional Freedom Techniques Support Cancer Related Experiences
Research has shown that EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is an effective method for alleviating emotional and psychological upsets as well as physical pain for cancer patients, their family, and caregivers.
In their book EFT For Cancer (December 2021, Energy Psychology Press), authors Deborah D. Miller, PhD, and Stephanie Marohn detail the practical application of Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as "EFT" or "tapping," to every aspect of dealing with cancer, from fear of the dreaded "C" word through diagnosis, treatment, and the myriad emotional and physical aspects of the disease.
According to Marohn, research has shown that EFT is an effective method for alleviating emotional and psychological upsets as well as physical pain. She says, "With all of these factoring into the cancer experience, adding EFT to a healing program is a form of self-care people can implement today. EFT provides support every step of the cancer journey."
An evidence-based practice, EFT combines acupressure (tapping on acupuncture points) with psychology's exposure therapy and cognitive behavior therapy (focusing on whatever is distressing you) to halt the stress response and clear pain and upset. The authors provide the scientific research that earned EFT the "evidence-based"
Marohn said she and researcher Dawson Church, PhD (founder of Energy Psychology Press) envisioned a book that filled a large missing piece in the EFT literature: a comprehensive book on cancer. "We wanted a book for all ages, encompassing all kinds of cancer and all those impacted by it," she says.
