PRESS RELEASE: San Francisco, CA (PRWEB)--Stanford Engineer Gary Craig introduces a new technique to help the more than 19 million Americans who suffer from some kind of anxiety disorder.

Craig developed Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) as a self-help tool for people with emotional difficulties that were unresponsive to conventional medical and psychological treatment. People suffering with anxiety disorders (including panic attacks) were quick to report their success using EFT to reduce or eliminate longstanding anxiety issues.

"I have personally witnessed hundreds of cases where anxiety sufferers found instant relief from current attacks and long-term generalized anxiety" says Craig. According to Craig's findings, unresolved emotional issues or past traumas cause a block or disruption in the subtle energies (Chi) of the body. It is these energy disruptions that cause the anxiety symptoms.

The reason that conventional treatments for anxiety are not working is because traditional psychologists and psychiatrists typically do not address their patients' anxiety issues at the energy level. Instead they prescribe medication or therapy designed to help the patient cope with the anxiety.

"Anti-anxiety medication may keep a person from experiencing a full blown anxiety attack, but the reason for the anxiety is still there. If they don't take the drugs they will have anxiety", says Craig. "While there may be some exceptions to this, I haven't seen any."

EFT is a simple technique of tapping on specific acupuncture points while thinking about the issue. There is no talk therapy involved, no drugs, and anxiety sufferers do not have to be exposed to the anxiety-inducing environment or situation.

The healthcare costs associated with anxiety disorders are an estimated $63 billion a year and include the cost of lost productivity in the workplace, lost wages and missed work. This does not take into consideration the cost of alternative or natural therapies and supplements that anxiety sufferers purchase in an effort to find a "cure" for their debilitating illness.

Craig says, "I would like to see Employee Assistance Programs cover the cost of EFT treatments for staff who are suffering from anxiety and panic, stress, and other illnesses like Irritable Bowel Syndrome that affect employee productivity and well-being."

Paul Grey, a newcomer to EFT reports "I believe self administered EFT has cured me of a 15 year panic disorder." Grey experienced high levels of generalized anxiety, panic attacks and agoraphobia. Grey tried standard talk therapy with a trained psychotherapist, and with a clinical psychologist. He tried hypnotherapy, counseling, Transcendental Meditation, muscle relaxation techniques and breathing exercises. He purchased books about panic and anxiety written by doctors and therapists. He also used two herbs: valerian and kava kava. He found some relief using kava, otherwise his panic and anxiety hadn't shifted in 15 years.

Grey tried EFT because it was free. He reasoned that EFT's inventor was not trying to get rich quick because he offered a free download of the EFT manual. After 15 years of trying to find relief from his anxiety, he was wary of charlatans.

In Grey's words; "I studied the manual and started applying EFT for my current anxiety and my past anxiety. Within a day it was as if all the power of the attacks had gone and my general anxiety was at a zero. I have been testing myself by doing things that I have avoided for years. Like going to the gym. Using trains. Driving on motorways. My mind is sometime still on these problems. I have not been distracted. It's just that the anxiety doesn't come. I can even consciously worry a bit that it might, and it still doesn't come. It's as if it has been cut off at source."

Anybody can learn to use EFT to halt the onset of an anxiety attack, or for long-term relief from generalized anxiety. Thousands of clinical reports show that anxiety sufferers experience relief about 80% of the time.

Over 225,000 people have downloaded Craig's free training manual and another 5,000 to 10,000 download it each month. Known as The EFT Manual, it has been translated by volunteer practitioners into nine languages. The EFT website is the sixth most actively visited natural health site in the world.

The EFT Manual gives anyone all the basics so they can apply it right away. It can be freely downloaded at...
