EFT Research

EFT Research

EFT has been researched in more than 7 countries, in over 9 universities and by more than 60 investigators.

The results have been published in more than 15 different peer-reviewed journals. These include distinguished top-tier journals such as:

  • 'Journal of Clinical Psychology'
  • The APA journals 'Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training' and 'Review of General Psychology'.
  • The oldest psychiatric journal in the US, the 'Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease'.


 EFT research includes investigators and members of faculty affiliated with many different institutions:

  • Harvard Medical School (USA)
  • The University of California at Berkeley (USA)
  • City University of New York (USA)
  • Walter Reed Army Medical Center (USUHS) (USA)
  • Texas A&M University (USA)
  • Lund University (Sweden)
  • Ankara University (Turkey)
  • Santo Tomas University (Philippines)
  • Lister Hospital (England)
  • Cesar Vallejo University (Peru)
  • Griffith University (Australia)


The wide variety of institutions, peer-reviewed journals, investigators, and settings that have, in independent research, found EFT to be efficacious, are one indication of the breadth of existing research results.

The next frontier of EFT research is replication of the studies that have not yet been replicated, and investigations into the physiological changes that occur during EFT, using such tools as DNA microarrays (gene chips), MEGs (magnetoencephalograms), fMRIs, and neurotransmitter and hormone assays.
