A new technique has been spread in clinical practice of the treatment of traumatised individuals over the last decade. Formal studies are underway exploring the efficacy of this technique, but anecdotal evidence suggests that it can be extremely useful in the treatment of trauma. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) utilises the stimulation of acupuncture meridian points while thinking of the traumatic incident and performing a number of tasks, which stimulate left and right hemispheres of brain function. A manual describing this technique will be distributed and practised. Various theories about the why in which this technique is operational will be briefly reviewed. Specific advantages of this technique are that the patient does not have to re-experience the trauma, and that the technique offers the clinician a tool that does not rely solely on language, but utilises both left and right brain functioning. Incorporation of its use with other therapeutic modalities will be discussed. Indications for use will be reviewed.

Key words: Emotional Freedom Technique – Trauma – Acupuncture
