What is Tapping (EFT) and how do I do it

EFT, also known as tapping or psychological acupressure, first came to prominence in the 1990s when developer Gary Craig published information about the therapy on his website. It involves tapping specific points on the body, primarily on the head and the face, in a particular sequence. While doing this, the person focuses on the issue that they wish to treat.

According to EFT International, the technique can be helpful for people with:
• anxiety
• depression
• chronic pain
• stress
• weight loss issues
• other problems

7-minute excercise for pain

In this video Nick Ortner from thetappingsolution.com shows how to use tapping for pain relief. EFT tapping is a self-soothing tool that can help us reduce stress-related pain, by reducing the emotional component of the pain. Tapping on the physical manifestations of stress in our body is a great way to access our inner emotional pain. Professionals are increasingly acknowledging this emotional pain is often the route cause of the chronic pain we may be suffering.

To use EFT Tapping follow these five steps


Identify the issue

During this step, think about the problem you wish to resolve. You should only choose one issue to focus on at any one time.


Test the initial intensity

You should rank the intensity of the issue on a scale of 0–10, with 10 being the worst the issue has ever been. This ranking system allows you to assess the effectiveness of the tapping at the end of the treatment.


The setup

Before beginning each round of tapping, you should decide on a simple reminder phrase to repeat while tapping the karate chop point. This point is at the center of the fleshy part of the outer hand.The reminder phrase should acknowledge the issue and convey self-acceptance in spite of it. For example, you might choose to say: “Even though I have [issue], I deeply and completely accept myself.”


The sequence

During this step, you tap on specific points on the body while repeating the phrase that you have chosen. If a practitioner is performing the treatment, they will carry out the tapping.

The tapping points, in sequence, are as follows:

top of the head (TOH) — directly in the center of the top of the head

eyebrow (EB) — the beginning of the brow, just above and to the side of the nose

side of the eye (SE) — on the bone at the outside corner of the eye

under the eye (UE) — on the bone under the eye, approximately 1 inch (in) below the pupil

under the nose (UN) — the point between the nose and upper lip

chin point (CH) — halfway between the underside of the lower lip and the bottom of the chin

beginning of the collarbone (CB) — the point where the breastbone (sternum), collarbone, and first rib intersect

under the arm (UA) — at the side of the body, approximately 4 in below the armpit

When tapping, use two or more fingertips and repeat the tap approximately five times on each point.

While some points — for example, the EB, SE, and UE — have a
“twin point” on the other side of the body, it is only necessary to tap on one side.
However, individuals can tap these points on both sides if both of their hands are free.


Test the intensity again

Again, rank the intensity of the issue on a scale of 0–10. Ideally, this will have improved. Repeat the process until the intensity reaches 0 or plateaus.
