I learned of TFT from a friend and bought the book. I have seen plenty of so called cures that do not work, and was quite skeptical, still for the price of the book it seemed worth a try. I've now used the techniques many times, and they do work. I've taught the techniques to total strangers, with little description of what they were about to try, other than it may eases their anxiety and they have reported immediate relief from their problems. The techniques have improved my stress levels and happiness in general.

I was introduced to Thought Field Therapy by my therapist and wanted to know more. Purchased the book and tore through it, easy to read. I had great results with panic attacks at the dentist. This really works! Also able to release anger that I've carried for years. The procedure seems to simple but it works, give it a try and you'll be amazed too.

I read this book after a friend recommended it. I didn't think it would work for my smoking habit of 30 years. The day after I tried this technique I lost my urge to smoke. Then I tried it on my life long fear of spiders. It worked. I killed my first spider without screaming. You need to read this book and try the technique, it is GREAT!!!!

The fact is that after over 25 years in development, Roger Callahan's Thought Field Therapy has no solid evidence, in the form of well-designed, published controlled studies, to support its claims, even at the most basic level. Callahan claims that the most advanced level of TFT, the Voice Technology has a success rate of 97-98% and is on a par with hard science, yet the only evidence he cites to support this are uncontrolled 'data' from radio show performances of himself and one of his trainees and treatments done at highly enthusiastic trainings. I was trained in VT and found it not to live up to its claims. I conducted a controlled study, being published in the Scientific Review of Mental Health Practice that demonstrates VT to be no better than randomly selected treatments requiring no special 'technology'. Yet the Callahans continue to charge people $100,000 to be trained on this level and clients are charged up to $600 per hour for VT. For people who are considering signing up for TFT treatment or training, I recommend the following article: http://www.srmhp.org/0302/media-watch.html Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and after 25 years, TFT has come up short on such evidence.
