Dawson Church, PhD shares one of the oddest-looking parts of EFT is the 9 Gamut Procedure. It involves tapping on a point on the back of the hand, while moving your eyes in a circle, as well as to the side. New research is showing, however, that eye movements are key to reprocessing old traumatic memories.
The University of South Florida (USF) conducted a study of people with PTSD and depression, using a new method called ART or Accelerated Resolution Therapy. They found that the emotional charge held in memories of traumatic events was rapidly reduced by ART.
ART uses eye movements, and also has clients re-imagine a desired outcome. Participants in the study experienced dramatic drops in both PTSD and depression symptoms, as well as improved sleep. The study was published in the journal Behavioral Sciences.
