What the heck is tapping?
You're here because you are curious about this tapping business! You’ve heard about it, maybe you’ve seen it, maybe you know somebody who does it, maybe you do it! Whatever has brought you here, welcome! Here’s a little bit about EFT tapping and why you’ll definitely want to learn to do it!
Tapping, sometimes called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) or Meridian Tapping, is a powerful self-help method that may help you improve many areas of your life including your health, relationships, finances and overall wellbeing.
Tapping is based on the stimulation of meridians used in Traditional Chinese Medicine which has been around for thousands of years. It is an easy to learn tool that helps you access your own health and natural state of well-being and balance. One of the cool things about it is that you can learn to do it on yourself or you can use it with a tapping practitioner.
Some people say it is like ‘emotional acupuncture without the needles’ since it combines ancient Chinese acupressure with modern psychological approaches into an simple process that can help you to reach your health and life goals.
