a primer on Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT™)

On the left-hand side of the EFT (Emo-free) site’s main page you’ll see: ‘What is EFT?’ with a drop down explanation that won’t copy paste.  Given that, I’ve tried to find some of the contents of that, and ended up with an older page on ‘What is EFT? – Theory, Science and Uses’; A Refreshing New Use of An Established Process.  It Often Works Where Nothing Else Will.’  Note: the basic protocols are all free.
