EFT tapping is a powerful holistic healing technique that has been proven to effectively reduce stress by bringing down the flight or flight reaction in the body. By reducing stress and calming your nervous system, you are better able to think clearly about a situation and take action.
Tapping therapy is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. During the process, which can be done with a tapping practitioner or individually, the fingertips are used to tap on specific meridian points on the face and torso while focusing emotions and physical sensations in the body. As the person taps on the points and focuses on their emotions and thoughts, the body will gradually relax and the individual will experience a lower level of stress around the situation as well as a clearer picture of what next steps might be.
I first found tapping as my marriage was crumbling. My stress level was extremely high. I started using tapping and suddenly I was sleeping through the night without a problem. Being well rested allowed me to think more clearly about my situation and what was best for me and my family. The more I used tapping, the easier it was for me to think about issues I had been avoiding and answer really hard questions about what I wanted in my life and begin to have the courage I needed to make those changes.
