What Is This Tapping Thing I’ve been hearing about?  


 


Everybody’s asking about it.  There are television shows using it. Hockey coaches are tapping behind the bench.  Hundreds of websites all over the world are dedicated to it.  Over 800,000 people attend Internet events like The Tapping World Summit.  It’s become a global phenomenon.


 


Tapping refers to Acupressure Point Tapping and is most well known as EFT.  Although acupressure point tapping is used with other healing strategies like EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TFT (Thought Field Therapy) it’s EFT that is most well known and most widely used.  EFT is Emotional Freedom Techniques and was developed in the early 1990’s by Gary Craig after learning Thought Field Therapy and realizing that the technique could be simplified. 


 


EFT involves focusing on an uncomfortable feeling or limiting belief while tapping with fingertips on a series of acupressure points.  This tapping sends a calming message to the nervous system encouraging the parasympathetic nervous system in the brainstem and at the base of the spinal column to become activated.  This initiates a series of physiological changes that culminate in calming the whole body.  When pairing an uncomfortable feeling with this calming message, the nervous system readjusts and no longer has access to the old feeling. 


 


For example, when recalling a traumatic event like a car accident, people relive some of the symptoms that they experienced at the time.  They may feel fear, nausea, pupils may dilate; heart and breathing rate may increase.  This is the nervous system reliving the pain of the past but if one taps while focusing on the discomfort, within minutes it fades and usually does not return. This frees the accident victim from the pain of their past.  After a few minutes of tapping people feel more relaxed and often have a more positive perspective on the issue, event or problem.  They are then able to problem solve or strategize about what they can do to change the situation or are more able to let it go and put it in the past.  It becomes difficult to regain access to the feelings associated with the event or problem and the person moves on.


 


When properly administered, Acupressure tapping relieves anxiety, phobias, depression, addiction issues, food cravings, grief, feeling stuck in life, abuse and self esteem issues as well relieving trauma symptoms in disaster and war torn parts of the world.  World-class athletes are tapping to improve their form.  Corporate groups are tapping to move through office politics or to increase sales.  It is common practice now to use EFT for self-sabotage, procrastination and poverty issues.  Tapping is being used to improve relationships both personal and professional.


 


Over the last decade acupressure tapping techniques have proven efficacy through well-designed scientific studies published in prestigious journals.  It has also gained popularity with the general public through its effectiveness and the hard work of EFT experts the world over. EFT studies are gaining clout and being considered by the American Senate for ways to address the serious Post Traumatic Stress symptoms experienced by their Vietnam, Desert Storm and Iraq vets.
