This study will be conducted to investigate the effect of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Application on infertility stress in women undergoing infertility treatment.


Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an easy-to-apply therapy, one of the types of energy psychotherapy. EFT gives effective and successful results in clinical problems.

Personal energy level and balance are very important, as Gary Craig, the inventor of the technique, stated, "The cause of all negative emotions is due to the disorder in the body's energy system." Because any disruption or blockage in the energy flow brings with it physical and psychological disorders. For this reason, first of all, the negative emotion that causes the negative situation should be eliminated. When the energy flow in the meridians is balanced, the emotional intensity or negative/negative emotion also disappears. Thus, the person starts to feel good.

In energy psychology applications, while the individual is in a relaxed and relaxed state, the electrical energy flow in the meridian system is also comfortable and regular. Emotional reactions such as anger, sadness, stress, disappointment create sudden obstacles in this flow. By focusing on the emotional reactions that hinder the individual, the stimulations on the meridian system (often by touch) regulate the energy flow and provide the individual to relax. The fact that the flow in the meridian system is not interrupted provides relief in the mind, body and emotion areas of the individual.

EFT works on the cognitive and energetic levels. While it is ensured that the individual is conscious and aware of a disturbing symptom or disorder, selected acupuncture points are touched at the same time, creating a cognitive transition and energetic release. EFT is applied safely for stress management.

It can be safely applied to individuals of all ages, including the elderly, pregnant and children. EFT was applied in 51 studies, 18 of which were randomized controlled and positive results were obtained with clinical measurements.

With EFT, the energy flow can be regulated safely and consciously, contributing to the individual's "better" feeling. Positive results in past applications reveal the reliability of the method. Since the application procedure is easy, the application areas are versatile and it does not show side effects, it is recommended that EFT be widespread in different clinical areas and evidence-based studies should be increased.
