There seems to be a lot of similarities between TMS and EFT. I have always had some doubts about it, but after reading the Hidden Psychology of Pain, I think I'm starting to change my views on it. It looks like it is really effective in calming the amygdala and counterbalancing the effects of trauma and stress on our lives. One quote I liked from Dr. Alexander’s book is: “My initial personal view was the EFT was not as powerful tool as some preferred psychotherapies, however this perception was radically challenged when I viewed one of the EFT training videos. Vietnam veterans who had suffered extreme post-traumatic stress since their war experience, and had been in psychiatric hospitals ever since, were treated using a particular application of EFT. One such veteran reported that he had barely stopped shaking in the decades since the war, and had also suffered from chronic insomnia. This man’s post-traumatic stress had remained resistant to all of the treatment approaches which psychiatry and psychology had been able to throw at it over several decades. He was interviewed again the day after the EFT treatment, and was able to report that he’d had his first good night sleep in years. In addition, he had stopped shaking for the first time since the war. This is a remarkable outcome for any treatment approach.” I'm curious, has anyone used EFT to recover from TMS before?
