This study by Steve Wells, Kathryn Polglase, Dr. Henry B. Andrews, Patricia Carrington and Harvey A. Baker found EFT to effectively treat specific phobias in just a 30-minute treatment session, and the results were superior to an alternative deep breathing treatment. This was the first controlled scientific study into the effectiveness of EFT published in a peer-reviewed journal.
