Llewellyn-Edwards, T., & Llewellyn-Edwards, M. (2012). The effect of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) on soccer performance. Fidelity: Journal for the National Council of Psychotherapy, 47, 14–19.
This study involved the use of a short session of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) with two English ladies soccer teams.
It is a randomized controlled trial with a supporting uncontrolled trial. It was designed to verify the results of an earlier similar American trial involving basketball players.
The results show a significant improvement in goal scoring ability from a dead ball situation following a short EFT session. These results support those of the earlier trial.
