Does language matter when doing EFT?

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™. As a result, it is likely outdated. It provides practical uses for EFT Tapping but you should also explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT, by reading our free e-book, The Unseen Therapist™, and/or get help from a Certified EFT Practitioner.

Hi Everyone,

Member Gilda Grace is a relative newcomer to EFT and asks this question:

Hi, Gary,

Question: When you're working with someone whose native language is not English, does it matter if they say their affirmation in the set-up in their own language or in English? Same for the phrase they use while tapping?

Gilda Grace

GC REPONSE: No. It doesn't matter what language is used. The client must, however, "tune in" to the problem. This can even be done with non-verbal clients. Visit our web site and read the Case History entitled "EFT with a Mentally Retarded Patient." This post by Tom Altaffer should give you still more insight into this process.

Hope this helps.
