Maybe you saw a Facebook video or maybe you heard about it from a friend – It’s the new wellness trend everyone's talking about: Tapping.
Also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Tapping is a holistic healing modality that’s been proven to effectively resolve a range of issues such as general stress, anxiety, phobias, emotional disorders, chronic pain, weight control, and addiction. Originally rooted in the principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and combined with modern psychology, EFT has been used as a self-help technique since 1993.
Perhaps the better question to ask is why not Tap? Tapping is simple, painless, and can be learned by anyone. It’s ultra-affordable, applicable anytime, anywhere and offers you the power to heal on your own!
While tapping yourself is effective, it's important to note that your brain does know the next tap is coming. This actually makes it less effective after the first few taps. When tapping is automated, it's much more effective! There are a number of products on the market to help with automation. Check out these popular EMDR buzzers: TouchPoints wearables, Theratappers bilateral stimulation device, and Neurotek tappers.
