Tapping Works With
Our Natural Instincts
Our hands carry an electromagnetic charge, and from birth we
instinctively use our hands to comfort ourselves. Have you ever seen
anyone hug themselves under stress? Have you ever put your hands up
to your face or over your mouth when receiving bad or shocking news?
Have your ever clapped your hand to your forehead under duress? We
unconsciously use our hands to comfort ourselves in difficult situations
and automatically reach for natural comfort spots on our bodies many
times each day. Tapping intentionally uses this natural inclination to use
our hands to bring about a sense of calm and reduce pain.
It’s All at Your Fingertips
EFT is applied by tapping with your fingertips on 10 acupuncture
meridians on the head and upper body. When you tap with your
fingertips you stimulate not only those meridians you are tapping on,
but those on your fingers as well. Normally you tap with your index
and middle finger with one hand, usually your dominant one.
However, the tapping points exist on both sides of the body so is
does not matter which side you use. Neither does it matter if you
switch sides during the tapping. You can also use more than two
fingers to cover a larger area
EFT is Powerful!
Listen to what professionals and others have to say about it.
Tapping is easy to learn and is a great self help tool for managing the day to day stress in your
life. However, you may not always get the results you want simply because you are not yet skilled
enough to identify and resolve complex core issues. Regardless of how long or how effectively
you have used these techniques, you can still get stuck when you work on yourself. Sometimes
you are just too emotionally involved to be able to define key issues on your own. An
experienced practitioner can see a bigger picture and offer an unbiased perspective that will help
you start moving forward again.
Here are the reasons why you may need assistance
from a skilled practitioner:
1. The ability to tune into a problem is the most important factor for tapping success. The 'art
of delivery' is in asking questions that lead to core emotional issues; experienced practitioners
have appropriate training to be able to achieve this.
2. Trained practitioners know additional tapping points and techniques to help with more
3. In cases of overwhelming emotions from severe trauma and abuse, it is advisable to work
with an experienced practitioner who can use gentle techniques and other skills to approach the
situation more comfortably.
4. Practitioners can see issues from different perspectives and angles. That is the reason why
even the most experienced ones work with each other from time to time.
5. It is energizing and healing when someone else sees the beauty in you that you can not see for
yourself from where you are.
6. Combining your energy and intention with that of the practitioner to work for a single
purpose raises the energy level and has a more powerful effect.
7. Sometimes just the fact that a trained practitioner is tapping with you can make a difference.
8. You may feel more confident and comfortable by having assistance from someone
experienced and trained sufficiently to help you.

Despite the fact that EFT has been applied successfully by many thousands of people for
hundreds of physical and emotional ailments and limiting health conditions, there is no
guarantee that EFT will be effective for your particular condition. These techniques are self-
help tools that are only intended to be used in conjunction with, and never to replace other
forms of medical or psychological treatment.
