You don’t have to be a sports psychologist to understand the damaging effects of stress, anxiety, or damaging self-talk in championship sports. Just watch a basketball playoff, a golf tournament, or the Olympics.
Now watch a growing number of professional and amateur athletes and coaches as they discover EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), an innovative acupressure technique that eliminates performance anxiety in minutes, improving athletic accomplishments of every description. The procedure, which involves tapping on key acupuncture points while focusing on the problem at hand, is said to balance the body’s energy, eliminating fears and phobias that interfere with performance.
Recently EFT practitioner Sam Smith in Australia taught the procedure to 37 participants at a charity’s rugby kicking contest. Male and female volunteers age 12 to 54 with no previous EFT experience kicked their best, then did a few fast rounds of EFT tapping to help them relax and focus, and tried again.
After EFT, they all improved in their distance and accuracy, averaging an overall improvement of 80.7 percent.
Smith had only a few minutes to demonstrate the procedure at the contest. “With more time and attention,” he says, “we could have improve everybody’s kicking beyond their wildest imagination …. This result clearly indicates the power of EFT in the simplest but very important part of just one sport.”
In cases reported at the official EFT website, a girls’ soccer team went from having a terrible season to winning every game, baseball player Paul Ahearne won Australia’s Pitcher of the Year award, professional and amateur golfers improved their scores, a girls’ high school basketball team began winning games, a gymnast overcame her fear of falling, and athletes in other sports stayed focused, improved their performance, or won their contests, all with the help of EFT.
In addition to improving sports performance by getting harmful emotions out of the way, EFT can improve range of motion suddenly and dramatically. EFT practitioner Stacey Vornbrock of Scottsdale, Arizona, has worked with Senior Professional Golf Association Tour players, two major league baseball players, a former National Football League player who is now on the Celebrity Pro Golf tour, and recreational athletes. These successes led to a physical therapy research project in which three patients were monitored by sensors and sophisticated technology. The patients’ range of motion, which had not responded to months of physical therapy, improved as much as 200 percent in a single EFT session.
There are EFT practitioners in most countries, especially the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South America. Many are licensed health care practitioners. The EFT website is now the sixth most actively visited natural health site in the world.
Over 225,000 have downloaded the official EFT training manual which has been translated by volunteer practitioners into nine languages. The manual, which is free, explains all the basics so readers can use it immediately. It can be downloaded from
