Animal EFT – just more woo-woo?

Hi Everybody,

It is another scorching hot day in San Antonio, but Roxie and Gypsy don’t mind, as they spend the day with the humans in an air-conditioned house.

You may or may not have heard of EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique. Per Gary Craig, EFT is essentially acupuncture without needles. It is a tapping methodology used to stimulate energy meridians for healing physical and emotional issues.

Some EFT practitioners have taken EFT to another level and used it on animals. Most will use what is called a proxy method, where you connect with the energy of the animal you wish to heal and tap on yourself, although others have had success in tapping directly on the animal.

My own opinion is mixed. I have not personally had success with EFT, but I’ve read so many testimonials I can’t help but think there is something to it. Plus it sure doesn’t hurt anyone or anything, as it is non-invasive and a method anyone can try.

Here is the link to download Gary Craig’s free EFT manual.

A couple of websites specifically about Animal EFT are: Animal EFT, and Silvia Hartmann Animal EFT protocol.

I also found a couple of youtube videos demonstrating animal eft:

Let me know what you think, and if you have had experience with EFT I’d love to hear about it.
