EFT and Scientific Research

EFT Founder Gary Craig graduated from Stanford in engineering. As a scientist, he knew that research would be very important to the acceptance of EFT so he initiated studies early in its development.

Since that time researchers in countries all over the world have done studies on the effectiveness of EFT. Many of them are randomized controlled trials (RCTs), a design generally regarded as the Gold Standard of research.

EFT research has been published in numerous top-tier, peer-reviewed journals. It has been shown to be effective for many issues. Here are some websites that track the research studies.
