How does 'tapping' work so well, so quickly?
Drawing on the ancient principles of acupuncture, meridian tapping (EFT) is a simple procedure that gently re-aligns the body's bioelectrical energy system, without the discomfort of needles. Tapping goes far beyond traditional talk therapy approaches by adding a crucial physical component: light, self-applied tapping on a series of points on the face and upper body.
The mind-body connection is a topic undergoing a resurgence of interest in the scientific research community. Stressful thought patterns trigger both an emotional response as well as large-scale biochemical changes in the body. According to the CDC, most doctor visits are stress related, and 85% of chronic diseases have an emotional root cause.
Tapping allows us to harness the power of our thoughts and feelings to make fast, permanent changes that are felt mentally, emotionally and physically.
Applying light pressure to acu points actually happens naturally and unconsciously.
Have you ever noticed how people tend
to play with their hands when they're
Or place their hands on their temples
or over their mouth when they
feel stressed or overwhelmed?
This natural response to strong emotion stimulates acu points, helping us calm down and move through our feelings.
In the practice of intentional EFT, the combination of light acu-tapping together with focusing the mind on a problem and the desired solution, or a better feeling, has been shown clinically to alter brainwave patterns, lower stress hormones, increase endorphins, and stimulate changes in neural pathways.
From 25 years of practice by tens of thousands
of practitioners, EFT has been shown to be
