I've given much thought to my own experience of using EFT with depressed clients. At the of this writing about 90% of my clients used EFT during a portion of practically every one of their therapy sessions. Although I never articulated this before, there was a pattern in the reaction to EFT in those clients who have been depressed.
We all know that EFT can do remarkable things, so that is not news. But it is news when we discover that it can impact conditions which are often thought to be organic in origin and considered hereditary, especially those which are ordinarily treated almost exclusively with medication. I have written previously about some extraordinary effects of EFT on conditions such as severe mental retardation, and today I would like to present some preliminary evidence that EFT can be used for certain symptoms of schizophrenia or related psychoses.
Some things happen unexpectedly with EFT, which leads to innovations and new ways to employ this remarkable tool. These surprise discoveries extend the use of EFT, making us even more able to help ourselves and others.
