EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries by more than 60 investigators whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals. Two of the leading researchers are Dawson Church, Ph.D. and David Feinstein, Ph.D.  

Dr. Dawson Church, a leading expert on energy psychology and an EFT master, has gathered all the research information and can be found on his website:

Two Research Studies Discussed Below

Harvard Medical Schools Studies and the Brain’s Stress Response

Studies at the Harvard Medical School revealed that stimulating the body’s meridian points significantly reduced activity in a part of the brain called the amygdala.

The amygdala can be thought of as the body’s alarm system. When the body is experiencing trauma or fear, the amygdala is triggered and the body is flooded with cortisol also known as the “stress hormone.” The stress response sets up an intricate chain reactions.

The studies showed that stimulating or tapping points along the meridians such as EFT tapping, drastically reduced and/or eliminated the stress response and the resulting chain reaction.  

Dr. Dawson Church and Cortisol Reduction

Another significant study was conducted by Dr. Dawson Church. He studied the impact an hour tapping session would have on the cortisol levels of 83 subjects. He also measured the cortisol levels of people who received traditional talk therapy and the cortisol levels of a third group who received no treatment at all.

On an average, for the 83 subjects that completed an hour tapping session, cortisol levels were reduced by 24% reduction. Some subjects experienced a 50% reduction in cortisol levels.  

Subjects that completed an hour long traditional talk therapy and the subjects that had completed neither sessions did not experience any significant cortisol reduction.
