I thank Lillian for publishing this great article. I also thank 'Coach Phyllis' for sharing her information and knowledge with us. I have personally met Phyllis, and I can vouch for her integrity as a person and for her passion for the EFT technique. I am honoured to be her friend. I feel, therefore, that I would be remiss not to respond to Mr. Wight's comments. Although I cannot personally attest to the EFT technique - a fact that I will remedy in the near future - I have strong beliefs in and experience in energy healing and acupuncture - they work. It was not all that long ago that men were afraid to cross the sea in fear that they would fall off the edge of the earth. I feel that it is important, especially in today's stress-filled world, that we open ourselves to non-traditional healing. I feel that there can be a balance between the traditional and non-traditional forms of restoring health to both body and spirit. Thank you, Coach Phyllis!

EFT is based on the same nonsense as energy healing and acupuncture. The man who started EFT tells people he knows the cause and cure for almost every ill and its solution is EFT. EFT does the exact same thing that Dumbo's magic feather did for him. No, not let him fly. It gives the person some temporary confidence from belief in a ritual that was performed on them. The effect is the essentially a placebo type effect. The danger in EFT is that people start with a reduction in stress (which will only work temporarily) and suddenly make the jump to EFT curing cancer, which it will not. When people ignore real treatments for this mystical hokum, then real harm is done.
