ABSTRACT In the present day competitive world, life is full of stress especially for students who are on the threshold of the beginning of their career. It also has been accepted that emotional disharmony is one of the important factors in physical symptoms and disease. Emotional Freedom Technique is being widely used as an alternate healing method for freedom from stress/ disease and with astounding results too on chronic illness. Such techniques are being accepted and used in medical and psychiatric circles as well as in the range of psychotherapies and healing disciplines. In this paper, an attempt was made to study the effects of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) on stress level of various subjects. It was hypothesized that there will be a significant drop in the stress level of the subjects after using the technique. A sample of university students was selected and the results were noted .Pre and post test design was used. It was concluded that the Emotional Freedom Technique had a positive effect on the stress level of subjects as they felt more relaxed, comfortable and calm after going through EFT. The long term benefits of this technique are discussed.
