Development of Thought Field Therapy®

After suffering from childhood fears and phobias as a foster child, Dr. Roger Callahan spent his life seeking to develop more effective methods to help both himself and his clients. He studied numerous psychological methods. In the late 1970s, he studied the meridian system of the body and then took the Applied Kinesiology 100-hour course as he worked to improve his results.

During that time, one of Dr. Callahan’s clients had a severe phobia of water. She had a terrible feeling in the pit of her stomach every time she thought about water. Since the point under the eye is related to the stomach meridian, he asked her to tap the acupressure point under the eye while thinking of her fear of water. As she tapped, the terrible feeling in the pit of her stomach when she thought about water went away.

As Dr. Callahan continued experimenting, he found that tapping different points along the acupressure system could help other things, including the negative feelings associated with stress, trauma, depression, phobias, addictive urge, anger, guilt, rage, embarrassment, and shame. He called his discovery Callahan Techniques® and later named it Thought Field Therapy®, or TFT. Since then, tens of thousands of people around the world have used this simple self-help treatment to overcome these things and live better, more productive lives.

"…one of the most effective and most powerful for quick clinical relief and help…and the idea of psychological reversal is one of the major discoveries in psychology!"
—Gary Emery, Ph.D., co-author, "Anxiety Disorders and Phobias: A Cognitive Perspective."

Letter From Dr. Roger J. Callahan, PhD

Dear Colleague:

Let me take a moment of your time to extend my personal invitation to learn Thought Field Therapy®. Thought Field Therapy® has been described as “The Power Therapy of the 21st Century.”

Over twenty years have elapsed since I made the first of many discoveries that led me to develop TFT. Today, thousands of people worldwide have learned this highly successful therapy and use it daily.

TFT is the firm foundation for a new understanding of human thought and psychology. It is gentle, direct, natural, and drug-free and is almost always successful when more conventional therapies are not.
