Tapping (also known as EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques), is a psychological form of acupuncture. Like acupuncture, it involves the stimulation of meridians. According to traditional Chinese medicine, meridians are channels of energy that run throughout the body, called chi. The goal of both energy techniques is to ensure that chi flows freely and naturally. However, there are several key differences between acupuncture and Tapping.
Instead Instead of using needles, you tap on or rub certain meridian acupoints on the hands, face, head, and upper body. You use the same points all the time.
As you do so, you focus on a specific emotional problem or physical ailment and create a statement that describes the issue.
You administer this technique to yourself. You are an active participant in your healing process. Healing is literally at your fingertips.
The core theory of Tapping is a belief that all discomfort, whether physical or emotional, is caused by a disruption in the energy system. By tapping on specific acupoints and mentally focusing on the issue at hand, you can dissolve the disruption or blockage, bringing about relief.
Because our physical bodies and our emotions are connected, repairing an emotional issue energetically will often heal a corresponding physical problem, and visa versa. Tapping can be utilized to help you lose weight, manage pain, quit smoking, and ease emotional pain.
It is a wonderful tool for managing the stress of everyday life. It can reduce anger, ease frustration, replace anxiety with calmness, and bring tremendous peace into your life.
My own experience with Tapping has put me in total awe of its amazing power to change the way I perceive and feel about any situation in which I experience anxiety, anger, guilt, or fear. I have healed old wounds and painful memories, allowing me to live my life more in the present moment instead of seeing my experiences through the prism of the past. In short, it has transformed my life, and continues to do so. And it can do the same for you.
What can Tapping do for me?
Tapping can help you with a number of issues, including the following
Irrational fears: fear of flying, fear of driving on the highway, fear of spiders, etc.
A word about quitting cigarettes:
My mother smoked two packs of cigarettes a day for 44 years. At 62 she was diagnosed with emphysema, which eventually took her life. Since then I have been on a mission to help as many people as I can to give up this nasty and dangerous addiction. I know she’s smiling down on me each time I am able to help someone quit. And I have helped many.
If you’re ready to quit, to breathe deeply and freely, and to increase your odds of living a long and healthy life, please contact me. I would be honored to facilitate your freedom from cigarettes.
