Emotional Freedom Techniques

Do you know that your body has the ability to heal itself given the proper diet and nourishing surroundings?

Whenever I read or hear about any new technique of healing that does not use the traditional intake of popping pills I feel attracted to trying it out.

Alternate healing therapies can be used for many of the usual ailments, right from simple headaches to more serious ones like an autoimmune disorder.

Back in summer when I was holidaying with my sis in SFO, I saw her use a technique called Tapping. Now I had heard about it in fact I had even tried it out myself. Now she is an MD in Pediatric Dentistry, and when you see a medical professional use the therapy you start believing in its benefits.

So what exactly is tapping?

Tapping, also known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), is a powerful holistic healing technique that has been proven to effectively resolve a range of issues, including stress, anxiety, phobias, emotional disorders, chronic pain, addiction, weight control, just to name a few.

Tapping therapy is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. It is a simple technique that works like emotional acupressure to quickly, gently and easily release the negative emotions and beliefs that are at the root of all our problems and pain.

Tapping with the fingertips on specific meridian endpoints of the body, while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensations, helps to calm the nervous system, rewire the brain to respond in healthier ways, and restore the body’s balance of energy.

Although there are about 8/9 tapping points on the body, I mainly use these 5;

TOH: On the top of the head or the crown. If you were to draw a line from one ear, over the head, to the other ear, and another line from your nose to the back of your neck, the TOH point is where those two lines would intersect.

 EB: At the beginning of the eyebrow, just above and the center of forehead.

 UE: On the bone under an eye about 1 inch below your pupil.

 CB: The junction where the sternum (breastbone), collarbone and the first rib meet. Ideally about an inch below the collarbone in the center of the chest

 UA: On the side of the body, about 4 inches below the armpit or Under the Arm.

You should use a firm but gentle pressure, as if you were drumming on the side of your desk. You can use all four fingers or just the first two (the index and middle fingers).

Tap with your fingertips, not your fingernails. The tapping order begins at the top and works down.

Tapping is simple and painless. It can be learned by anyone. And you can apply it to yourself, whenever you want, wherever you are. It’s less expensive and less time consuming. It gives you the power to heal yourself, putting control over your destiny back into your own hands.

With energy medicine you are teaching your body new habits and more effective ways to deal with the effects of stress.

At first, you may need to tap many times through the day – upon waking in the morning, around meal time (remember, this helps your metabolism) and whenever you feel your energies slump. As your system learns these new habits, it stabilizes and learns to reset on its own, so you may not have to tap as often.

Still, it’s like brushing your teeth – some sort of daily regimen is needed. Use your common sense and learn to listen to your body. When you need a quick pick-me-up, this quick routine will give you a boost. If you’re under a lot of stress, or have a big-time stress arise, know you need to help your energies cope.

Try it for yourself – to get the thrills you must do the drills. Let me know how this energy tapping works for you.
