What is this “tapping”?

You probably saw my offer for a free tapping round for getting a good night’s sleep. And maybe you’re wondering what this “tapping” is all about.

Tapping is the shorthand for a technique called EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques. Basically, we tap meridian points with our fingertips when doing EFT. We also use phrases while tapping to stay focused on a topic we want to deal with.

Watch this video to see how it’s done and where all the tapping points are:

Some more information on EFT:

EFT is a very efficient mix of ancient Chinese knowledge and modern psychology. It was developed by Gary Craig in the 1990s and has spread all over the world – partly thanks to Gary’s amazing and generous decision to give EFT away to everyone who wants to use it. Of course, there are now many, many versions of it. I use what I like to call “creative EFT”, which deviates a little from the original version as I say many different phrases throughout a tapping round. You probably saw that in the blog articles.

In an EFT-tapping round, I tap on nine different meridian points, on the head, the upper body and the arm. Those are easy to reach and to remember. No matter what topic you want to cover with EFT, those points always stay the same. You just vary the phrases you say while tapping them. While EFT is still in an experimental stage, many, many case studies suggest that EFT is helpful in almost every aspect of life. As Gary used to say: “Try it on everything!”

I’m a licensed non-medical practitioner of psychotherapy in accordance with German law, so when I work with clients, I use EFT to change the emotional aspects of the issues we focus on in a session.

Feel free to experiement with EFT, but you must be aware that only you are responsible for your own work with EFT and I cannot assume any responsibility for the results you get. Please be always aware of your safekeeping and take good care of yourself.
