EFT Tapping Points Guide

This EFT Tapping Points guide gives you a demonstration and description of where to tap when applying the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

To benefit from EFT, you need to know more than just where to tap. There is an ‘art of delivery’ in applying EFT to more serious issues such as trauma, abuse, fears, phobias, and chronic illness. This is what you pay for when consulting an EFT Practitioner, not just knowing where to tap.

EFT works so if you aren’t getting results with EFT by yourself or just want to get the benefits without learning EFT, then personal EFT sessions are your quickest path to emotional and physical freedom.

Chin Point (CP)
Midway between the point of your chin and the bottom of your lower lip. Even though it is not directly on the point of the chin, we call it the chin point because it is descriptive enough for people to understand easily.
Collarbone Points

Collarbone Points

Collarbone Point (CB)
The junction where the sternum (breastbone), collarbone and the first rib meet. This is a very important point and in acupuncture is referred to as K (kidney) 27. To locate it, first place your forefinger on the U-shaped notch at the top of the breastbone (about where a man would knot his tie). From the bottom of the U, move your forefinger down toward the navel 1 inch and then go to the left (or right) 1 inch. While not actually on the collarbone, we call it the collarbone point since it’s a lot easier to say than "junction where the sternum (breastbone), collarbone and the first rib meet."
Under Arms

Under Arms

Under Arms (UA)
On the side of the body. For men, it is the same height as their nipples. For woman, it is in the middle of the bra strap. It is about 4 inches below the armpit.
Inner Wrist Points

Inner Wrist Points

Wrist Points* (WR)
On the inside of each wrist. Tap together by crossing one wrist over the other with the insides facing.
* These points are not part of the original EFT Basic Recipe but are included because they have been found to be valuable additions since the initial development of EFT.
