STORY AT-A-GLANCE
EFT significantly reduced phobia-related anxiety and behavior in 22 students with anxiety related to a specific phobia
EFT is a psychological acupressure technique based on the same energy meridians used in acupuncture, but uses tapping of your fingers instead of needles
In another study, EFT led to a significant decrease in levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which mirrored an improvement in psychological distress
Traumatic events, like the unexpected loss of a loved one, increase the risk of anxiety disorders, but EFT helps decrease the intensity of traumatic memories after just one session
Lack of sleep is also linked to increased anxiety; EFT helps in this area, too, improving sleep quality in older adults with insomnia
