For the past 35 years, a simple technique called Thought Field Therapy has been rapidly healing trauma, anxiety, pain and disease for people who are desperate to regain wellness and normalcy in their lives.

What started as a simple therapeutic treatment to stimulate the body’s own healing systems through tapping on various points of the body—much the same way Chinese physicians use acupuncture to do—has become much more mainstream, launching the fields of energy psychology and energy medicine in the western world.

Dr. Roger Callahan is the founder of Thought Field Therapy – TFT.

Dr. Callahan believes his most important discovery is psychological reversal due to the enormous impact it has had.

Since founding TFT, there have been many copycat versions taken and modified from Dr. Roger Callahan’s lifetime studies. EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, is one example.

The Brief Story of Thought Field Therapy (TFT) And Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

About three years ago, I received a phone call from Fuller Royal, MD director of a medical clinic in Las Vegas. He called to tell me that the treatments I developed were helping his patients. He told me that he used Heart Rate Variability (HRV), an objective test, unresponsive to placebo, in order to test all his treatments. He said that he never has seen a more powerful means of improving HRV.

A short while later, I was contacted by an expert on HRV, he told me that he was using HRV to measure the effectiveness of various treatments to reduce anger.

When he tried my treatment for chronic anger, he saw a dramatic improvement in the patient and also a dramatic improvement in the HRV score. (It is well known that chronic anger can be a serious problem for heart patients.)

Still later, I heard from a practitioner in Norway who manufactures HRV equipment and the results he obtained from using my treatments had such a powerful effect on his HRV equipment that at first he thought something went wrong with the equipment for he had never before seen such changes in HRV. He found it was the power of my treatments and his equipment was fine.

The term Heart Rate Variability refers to a precise measure in milliseconds in the variation in the intervals between heart beats. Over 40 years ago, it was found that when the interval between heart beats becomes smaller then death follows. Read more

Thought Field Therapy is well established as breakthrough process that Dr. Roger Callahan discovered 30 years ago, helping to put individuals back in charge of their own healing process.

With rising health care costs, more people than ever are looking for alternative health solutions that will save them a visit to the doctor’s office. In fact, a recent report on Complementary and Alternative Medicine by the American Institute of Medicine states finds over 1/3 of Americans have pursued some form of alternative health treatment.

Thought Field Therapy has many followers who have adapted Dr. Roger Callahan’s techniques and position it as an offshoot.  Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT, is one example. Although the “offshoots” are marketed well on the Internet, few have the rich history and the success of TFT. In fact, TFT is now used to treat trauma victims of genocide, natural disasters and war through the ATFT Foundation.

TFT also helps soldiers returning from combat.

“For 25 years I have treated American war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have witnessed gallant efforts to keep a job, be members of a family, overcome homelessness and resist the temptation of suicide.

I am very grateful to Dr. Callahan for his discovery of Thought Field Therapy. For too long a time, my patients and I have yearned for something like this. In my opinion, this gentle action technique is easily the best approach to thorough and enduring relief from this crippling psychological disorder.”

The TFT Foundation is excited to announce the publication of its 2009 PTSD study and work in Rwanda.  It has taken a long time and a lot of effort by many, and led by our board member, and Trauma Relief Committee chair, Suzanne Connolly.

It was a long time coming but, I think, an important article in a well read journal by those interested in helping Africa recover from trauma.  I would also like to thank the Peter C. Alderman Foundation for their assistance in edit corrections.

The entire study can be found on page 24 of the June 2013 Issue of the African Journal of Traumatic Stress, found here: http://petercaldermanfoundation.org/AfricanJnl/AJTS_V1N5.pdf

I wish to thank all the members of the TFT Community, The Paton Family Trust, The PepsiCo Foundation and the Ruth Lane Foundation for their support to complete this work.

Abstract

The use of Thought Field Therapy (TFT), a brief therapy technique, is examined in a study titled, Utilizing Community Resources to Treat PTSD: A Random Controlled Study Using Thought Field Therapy, to determine if there is a significant difference in the reduction of trauma symptoms between the treated group and the untreated group post treatment.

Study participants in the waitlist group received treatment after having completing the posttest.  One-hundred and sixty four adult survivors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide received a one-time trauma-focused TFT intervention in this randomized waitlist controlled study. Prior to the study,TFT techniques were taught to community leaders, who then provided them in their native language, Kinyarwanda, to the participants during an individual session. Pre- and post-intervention surveys of trauma symptoms included the Trauma Symptom Inventory (TSI)

(Briere, 1995) and the Modified Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptom Scale (MPSS) (Falsetti, Resnick, Resnick, & Kilpatrick, 1993). After one week, significant differences were found in trauma symptoms and level of PTSD symptom severity and frequency between the treatment and the waitlist control groups. Participants in the waitlist group experienced significant reductions in trauma symptoms following their treatments,which took place after the first posttest.  These positive outcomes suggest that a one-time, community leader facilitated trauma-focused intervention may be beneficial with protracted PTSD in genocide survivors.

Joanne Callahan recently had the pleasure of appearing on the UNIVERSAL SPIRITUAL CONNECTION blog talk radio show, where she was asked to explain what TFT is and how it is different from EFT… EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a version that former student Gary Craig created, a one-size fits all version.

In the audio below, Joanne explains how TFT works and how it has spawned so many variations of tapping therapy.

It’s a great discussion on the history of Thought Field Therapy, how it works and what the differences are between TFT and EFT.

Michelle Bruny RN presented Thought Field Therapy to the Caring Advocacy Committee of Nurses at Redlands Community Hospital. I was so impressed with this therapy I wanted to use it while working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

I was taking care of baby boy Johnson, a micro-premie baby born around 25 weeks gestational age in the NICU. At the time I was taking care of him he was about five weeks passed his due date and was having a hard time nipping his full feedings. I was worried about him because he started showing signs of nipple aversion.

Feeding aversions are sometimes found in babies born premature who are intubated for long periods of time. Baby boy Johnson was intubated for the first several weeks of life and was reintubated a few weeks later. This reintubation delayed normal feeding patterns and he had to wait a longer time to be able to take a bottle. For several weeks feeding progress was slow and required much patience from nursing staff and his parents. The infant would resist taking a nipple and would require gavage feedings because successful bottle feeding did not happen.

After learning about Thought field therapy, I asked Michelle if it could work on a little baby who showed evidence of a feeding aversion. She said definitely and encouraged me to use the trauma algorithm since having a plastic tube in the mouth might have caused the baby to avert to any kind of oral stimulation.

After talking to Michelle, I was able to take care of the baby for the next three days. At the beginning of each feeding I would go through the trauma algorithm and the baby’s face would relax after finishing the sequence. Before the sequence began the baby was very frustrated and appeared very agitated. He cried when the nipple was placed around his mouth.

I did this sequence while he took a few sucks and during this sequence his facial expressions began to relax. As the days went by he would eat more at each feeding and he would rest more time between feedings. At the end of the three days the baby was bottle feeding much better than he had three days prior.

I feel that Thought field therapy was a key component of this child successfully being able to bottle feed and ultimately being discharged home to his mother and father.
