   Energy Psychology - EFT " Tapping"



What is EFT or "Tapping" as it is better known?  A brilliant combination of ancient Chinese Accupressure and Modern Psychology that can improve all aspects of your life:  health, relationships, wealth, weight loss, heal trauma and general outlook and happiness in life. 







"If you want to heal the body, you must also heal the mind."
Plato



Tapping is an extraordinarily simple technique everyone can learn and use.  When I first learned about it and began using it myself I was incredulous at how simple and effective it is.  When I saw the results firsthand, I decided I needed to learn more about it so I could teach and share it with everyone.



(I truly believe that every child should be taught this technique at a young age ---it would change the world!  It is being taught to children in Connecticut to help heal the trauma of the mass shootings in Sandy Hook and elsewhere in the world to assist with trauma and wellness.  If children can learn it and use it successfully, everyone can!)
How does Tapping work?   

You've heard of the flight or fight response that we all have as part of our ancient DNA?  That response occurs in us as a result of stress triggers.  When we have a stress trigger our brain prepares our body for it...it raises our blood pressure, heart pumps, blood sugar rises, all to prepare to face "the enemy".  Today, we rarely have a true enemy to face, but rather triggers that create - or re-create- real or imagined trauma from past experiences.  Either way, the reaction is the same in our bodies causing  physical or emotional dis-ease.  Tapping is able to actually stop the reaction and reprogram your brain to react differently.

When you’re experiencing a negative emotional state—angry or upset or fearful— your brain goes on alert. It prepares your body to enter a full-blown, fight-or- flight response. This response evolved to mobilize the body to face an external threat-think of a tiger coming after your ancient ancestor. All the body’s defense systems are turned on to support either fighting or fleeing from the danger. Your adrenaline pumps, your muscles tense, and your blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar all rise to give you extra energy to meet the challenge.

stressors in ancient days were very real threats to survival. Today, however, the fight-or-flight response is rarely activated by a physical threat. Most of our fight-or-flight responses today are triggered internally. For many of us, the internally generated stress response is triggered by a negative memory or thought that has its roots in past trauma or conditioned learning from childhood. The stress response in the body takes the same form, whether the trigger is the tiger (external) or a negative memory (internal). The adrenaline flows, the heart races, and so on. What tapping does, with amazing efficiency, is halt the fight-or-flight response and reprogram the brain and body to act-and react-differently.

The stress response begins in your brain in the almond-shaped amygdala, one of the components of the limbic system, or midbrain. The midbrain is located between the frontal lobes (the cortex) and the hindbrain (also called the reptilian brain-the earliest, most primitive part of the brain). The limbic system is the source of emotions and long-term memory, and it’s where negative experiences are encoded. The amygdala has been called the body’s smoke detector. “Uh-oh, here comes trouble,” says the amygdala. “Something is threatening our safety.” It signals the brain to mobilize the body in the fight-or-flight response. Tapping on the meridian endpoints helps to deactivate the amygdala’s alarm and sends a calming response to the body, and the amygdala recognizes that it’s safe.

Is this Science or a Bunch of Baloney?

It is easy for many -especially those who have never done the work- to dismiss Tapping as another wild "new agey" thing.  But there has been a lot of research into Tapping and it has been around for several decades now.

Harvard University Medical School studies have shown that stimulation of  meridian points ( acupressure points) will lessen the flight or fight response in our bodies.

Other controlled studies have shown a significant decrease in cortisol ( the hormone secreted when you are under stress) levels after Tapping.  There is even a Project with war veterans who are being taught Tapping to treat PTSD with a significant decrease in symptoms after several rounds of Tapping.

Bottom line? Tapping works!  As with anything else, you will get out of it what you put into it.  It is not a miracle cure for anything but if you use it regularly you will see an amazing change in your life...and all it takes is a few minutes a day.
