Have You Ever Tapped? (not dancing…)

Have you ever heard of Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique?

I stumbled on EFT or tapping last year when I was still recuperating from my boating accident and used it for pain management.

Tapping is an exercise where you literally tap on specific acupuncture points while saying a script that helps you to relieve the physical or emotional pain you are dealing with.

To tap:

  • Start thinking about the event or feeling that you want to work on
  • Begin tapping on prescribed acupuncture points while speaking a script aloud.  Some people say you can just think about the issues, you don’t have to talk out loud
  • Keep going through the tapping sequence until you feel the intensity of your issue decrease
  • Take a deep breath

What you have just done, in  simple terms, is break the connection between the thought and the physical response. Now, you can have the memory of the event but the physical response no longer occurs. The behavior or the memory no longer has the power that it used to and allows you to move on and create a new response or behavior.

The World Tapping Summit is going on right now. In an interview on the summit with Dr. Feinstein, a psychologist who studies tapping, he states that he thinks tapping will be studied soon, driven primarily by insurance companies, as a safe, inexpensive and effective way to treat a multitude of physical and emotional issues. Currently, research is only being done on acupuncture.
