What is Tapping exactly?
What it’s not is Tap Dancing. What it IS, is fingertip tapping on acupressure points, to relieve not only our stress and anxiety but also let go of old habits and beliefs that hold us back.
Having been an OB-GYN & Ovarian Cancer Research Nurse for a large medical center for many years, I have seen my share of pain and suffering.
It motivated me to study what other cultures had been doing to keep happy and healthy over the centuries. The ancient Chinese practices of Qigong and Acupressure held the answers for me. Qigong (pronounced Chee-GUNG) is similar to Tai Chi though Qigong’s focus is more on healing and not on self-defense.
Acupressure Point Tapping (also more recently known as EFT, short for Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a remarkable technique that my Qigong Master says takes advantage of energy lines in our bodies that Chinese practitioners have known about for 5000 years. Qi (or Chi) is the Chinese word for the Life Force that energizes us.
There are points along these energy lines that can be pressed or tapped on to release energy blocks caused by negative emotions or traumas which can rob us of our full potential.
Here’s a great tip: We all have 3 points on the inside of our wrists that we can tap on with our fingertips to relieve anxiety. They run underneath our watchstraps – on both wrists.
Next time you feel stressed, move your watch out of the way and start tapping on one wrist with the other hand’s fingertips.
Think about what’s stressing you, and begin to breathe slowly and deeply.
The combination of these acupressure points being tapped on and taking deep breaths allows the energy blockages to become unstuck, just the way unkinking a hose under pressure releases the water flow.
Give yourself the gift of tapping for several minutes, until you feel better and can think more clearly.
New solutions you hadn’t thought of may come your way.
Tapping regularly can release old, pent-up frustrations and let go of old habits, so we can be our best. It does take practice, no doubt, but it is so worth it.
Good to know. Here's a scientific study that shows Tapping decreases cortisol (stress hormone) levels:

I wish I had known about Tapping when my Dad was alive. He was a WWII career Navy man and had PTSD from his horrific war experiences. More research is now showing how Tapping can help veterans with their PTSD.
Check out stressproject.org/video/ to see what veterans are saying about how Tapping has improved their lives. If it can help with severe trauma, it can certainly help with our everyday stresses.
If exploring how Tapping can help you be happier and healthier, there’s a full protocol for fastest results.
