EFT Protocol
Emotional Freedom Techniques


Step 1 Name the problem, clearly, directly and truthfully.

Step 2 Take a Distress Level of how bad it is right now 0 - 10

(0 = none, 10 = unbearable)

Step 3 Setup - "Even though [I have this problem], I deeply and completely accept myself" speak three times out loud or silently, while tapping the KC point . For example:

"Even though I have this pain in my arm, I deeply and completely accept myself"

Step 4 Using one or two fingers, rapidly tap each of the points 7-10 times, starting from point 1 (eyebrow) and ending with point 7 (under arm), then back to point 6 (collar bone); while tapping each point, speak out loud or silently, once at each point, a keyword or phrase that assists you in keeping focus on the problem:

Keyword Example: "pain"

Step 5 Check Distress Level. If significant progress has been made, yet some remains, go on to Step 6. If no progress has been made (Distress Level remains high), return to Step 1 and explore what other problem may be under this one. (example: "I did something stupid and hurt my arm." Setup: "Even though I did something stupid and hurt my arm I deeply and completely accept myself." Keyword: "Hurt" or "Stupid"). If you still make no progress, make note of the problem and call me.

Step 6 While tapping the KC point, change the Setup to:

"Even though there is still some of this problem [pain] remaining, I deeply and completely accept myself."

Return to Step 4 using keyword: "remaining" - meaning "remaining [problem or pain]".

Step 7 If, after using the new Setup in Step 6, the Distress level is not yet down to 0-1, tap the KC point while repeating (out loud or silently):

"I really choose to get completely over this problem [pain], and I deeply and completely accept myself."

Return to Step 4 using keywords: "completely over" - meaning "completely over this [problem or pain]"
