TFT Algorithm for Most Phobias


1. Tune the Thought Field -- that is, intentionally think about the addictive urge you want to treat.

2. Using the Subjective Units of Distress (SUD) scale. determine how upset you feel at this moment when thinking about the phobia. On this scale, 10 is the most intense it could possibly be, and 1 indicates absolutely no trace of it. Write down the SUD rating before you continue to the next step.

3. Using two fingers of one hand, tap five times under the eye, about an inch below the bottom of the center of the bony orbit, high on the cheek. Tap firmly, but not hard enough to cause pain.

4. Tap solidly five times under the arm, about four inches directly below the armpit, using rigid fingers. In men, this spot is under the arm about even with the nipple. Women can locate this spot by tapping at about the center of the bra under the arm.

5. Tap the "collarbone point." To locate it, take two fingers of either hand and run them down the center of the throat to the top of the center collarbone notch. This is approximately even with the spot where a man would knot his tie. From there, move straight down an additional inch. Then move to the right one inch. Tap this point five times. 

6. Take a second SUD rating and write it down. If the SUD has decreased 2 or more points (which will be the case for most people), then continue with step 7 below. If there was no change, however, or if the change in the SUD was only 1 point, perform the correction for a psychological reversal, using the technique described in this post (CLICK HERE). Then repeat steps 1 through 6.

7. Perform the nine-gamut treatments. Locate the gamut spot on the back of the hand, about an inch below the raised knuckles of the ring finger and little finger when making a fist. Begin tapping the gamut spot with two fingers of the opposite hand, about three to five times per second, and continue tapping while performing all nine steps below ( tap five or six times for each of the nine-gamut positions). It is very important to tap the gamut spot throughout all nine of these gamut treatments:

G1~ Open the eyes.

G2~ Close the eyes.

G3~ Open the eyes and point eyeball down and to the left.

G4~ Point the eyeballs down and to the right.

G5~ Whirl the eyeballs around in a circle in one direction (clockwise).

G6~ Whirl the eyeballs around in the opposite direction (counter clockwise).

G7~ Hum a few bars of any tune aloud (more than a single note; 
rest the eyes).

G8~ Count aloud from one to five.

G9~ Hum the tune again.

8. Tap five times under the eyes again.

9. Tap five times under the arm again.

10. Tap the collarbone point five times again.

11. Take still another SUD rating and write it down. If it has declined to 1 (which will happen with most people), move to step 12 below. But if it has decreased significantly yet is still not a 1, perform the MINI PR correction as described below, and then repeat the treatment steps above.

12. To ensure that the improvements you've made are complete, perform the floor-to-ceiling eye roll (when the SUD is 2 or lower): Hold the head level and move your eyes down. Then begin tapping the gamut point as you move your eyes upward.


 A related procedure, called a mini psychological reversal correction, can be used when you decrease your SUD to a 3 or 4 but can't seem to get it any lower.  In other words, you've achieved substantial improvement, but you can't get to the finish line.  A block exists that is keeping you from reducing the SUD any further
In the algorithm for your particular emotional problem, you'll be instructed on whether and when to use this technique. here is the  procedure to follow:
~ Find the PR spot mentioned above,  located on the outside edge of the  hand, between the wrist and the  base of the little finger.

 ~ Tap about fifteen (15) times with two fingers of the opposite hand.

As long as a psychological reversal persists, TFT ( or any other treatment) won't be able to get the SUD to a 1.  The PR or mini PR correction will open the door that allows TFT to eradicate your problem.


A phobia is a persistent fear without a rational basis, typically related to a harmless object or situation. Ironically, most people who have these phobias understand quite well how unrealistic their fear is, which makes them feel even more foolish and ashamed, and contributes further to their emotional distress. They know they shouldn't be afraid, but they simply can't rid themselves of it. 

  Most mainstream psychologists actually believe that phobias can't be cured. That has been devastating news for phobias whose fears have disrupted their careers, hurt their relationships, and sabotaged  their ability to enjoy life. For many years, that was terrible news for me as well, I grew up in foster homes, where I suffered in silence dealing with fears of heights, tunnel, and speaking in front of others. If only I had known the phobia algorithm back then, it could have saved me from plenty of agony. 

  Some time ago, I met a woman at the base of the aerial tram in Palm Springs, California, which travels thousands of feet to the top of San Jacinto Mountain. Although she wanted to ride on the tram, she was petrified of heights, and so she just stood there, unable to take the few steps necessary to board the gondola.

With her permission, I treated her with a TFT algorithm on the spot -- and it worked. Within minutes, she said she felt fine. Her SUD, she said, had plummeted to 1. She and I boarded the tram, and I rode next to her to the top of the mountain.

She clearly enjoyed the ride, free of the fear that had caused trembling, heart palpitations, and a flushed face just minutes earlier. 

  The algorithms that follow can produce the same kind of instantaneous, painless healing of your own fears. These are two phobia algorithms. One is for most phobias and fears. It is effective for fear of heights, bridges, cats, dogs, bugs, snakes, lizards, needles, dentists, mice, horses, water, closed space, public speaking, and all other phobias except the three mentioned below (public speaking, by the way, is the most common fear, but can often be rapidly resolved with this algorithm). 
The other algorithm is for three specific phobias -- spiders, claustrophobia, and air turbulence ( in flight). It is a particular effective treatment for these conditions

  During an appearance I made on a radio talk show, a caller described her intense fear of spiders. Just the sight of a spider,

she said, would leave her shaking and feeling faint. On the SUD scale, she said she was a 10 at that moment. Then I guided her through the phobia algorithm. After this brief treatment lasting only two minutes, she reported that her SUD reading had plummeted to a 1. 

  The radio show continued for almost another hour. Just before it ended, the woman called back. There was genuine excitement in her voice. She said that she had phoned in again because while sitting on her couch, she noticed that a spider had begun crawling on her lap. An hour earlier, that might have been one of the most terrifying moments of her life.  but she described feeling no fear at all as she calmly watched the spider make its way across her lap and back onto the couch. her SUD score of 1 clearly correlated with the dramatic elimination of her fear.
