Tapping: A Helpful Tool To Address Negative Emotions

There are some great tools to help relieve stress, pain, anxiety, trauma, and other symptoms. One of these tools is quite simple to use. Tapping–not on your tabletop or by donning tap shoes–can provide relief from these symptoms as well as other negative emotions.
Tapping is the term used to indicate Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Thought Field Therapy (TFT). It works on key energy points along meridians in your body. Meridians are a complex system of energy pathways that flow throughout the human body. They deliver essential energy or ‘chi’ to each of our organs, including our nervous, circulatory, respiratory, immune, skeletal, muscular, and digestive systems.

Small blockages or imbalances of energy can occur throughout the body, which if left untreated has the potential to result in unpleasant symptoms depending on the location of the blockage. The idea is that specific energy points may be blocked, leading to negative emotions and symptoms. You may be aware that acupressure and acupuncture also work through energy points. Using tapping can unblock where energy is stuck and negative emotions keep circling. The process is quite simple.

How does one get started tapping? As a tapping (EFT/TFT) practitioner, I help people learn how to tap, so that they can do this on their own. A practitioner can help guide people to become more specific on phrases that may be helpful for them as they tap to release negative emotions. As you become more comfortable with tapping, you may realize other specific areas of your life where you may be stuck and create new phrases where you can use tapping. There are also apps that are available to help people learn how to tap.

The reality is that you cannot feel gratitude and emotions at the same time. So, if you want to try something to complement or substitute other common practices to address negative thoughts and emotions such as meditation, yoga, journaling, try tapping. Tapping can be part of your health coaching program to unlock negative emotions and help you focus on moving forward with your health goals. Below are services included in my coaching package which includes both coaching and training to learn EFT. If you want to learn more, sign up for a free discovery call.
