Tapping Points (Meridian Channels)

While EFT or tapping can address a range of complex emotional challenges, the basic protocol is quite straightforward and surprisingly, easy to learn.

1. Side of your Hand.

2. Inside your Eyebrow.

3. Side of your Eyes.

4. Under your Eyes.

5. Under your Nose.

6. Under your Mouth.

7. Collarbone.

8. Under your Arm (3.5 inches under your armpit)

9. Top of your Head. 

Why do we Tap on Those Points? 

When we tap on those 9 Tapping Points (Meridian Channels, from Chinese Medical System) while we focus on a problem or specific issue, we send a calming signal to the amygdala, letting our Nervous System know that even though we are seeing something as a threat, we are safe… Of course, if you need to run because a bear is chasing you, that is a threat! and you need to take action right away! 

The Amygdala (the word comes from the Greek for “almond”) is one of the components of the Limbic System, or midbrain, and is the source of emotions and long - term memory, and it’s where negative experiences are stored!

The Amygdala has also been called the body’s smoke detector. “Oh! Something is threatening our safety.” This sends a signal to the brain and the Fight-Flight-Freeze response is activated! When this part of our brain is activated, we can't think, analize and plan what would be the right direction to take, instead, we are 'reacting' . 

An early negative experience can program the amygdala to raise the alarm when something similar triggers in the present time... And many times, we are NOT even aware of this! 

If we take that early negative experience and we tap on that memory, we send a calming signal to the brain letting it know that there are other options, and maybe even there are no threats/no dangers.

While the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has produced excellent clinical results and is gaining in scientific support, it is not yet widely accepted as a formally-validated scientific technique and thus must be considered experimental in nature with no guaranteed outcome for any individual. Both practitioners and members of the general public must therefore take complete responsibility for their own use of EFT. Please note that I am not a medical doctor and do not treat physical issues or disease. I hold the Complete EFT Certification/ Accreditation issued by EFT International Organization. I always suggest you seek appropriate medical options for your physiological and psychological issues from qualified professionals. With EFT Techniques, I can help you to release the emotions and limiting beliefs that may be contributing to your issues and holding you back. I believe that emotional freedom quite often creates the conditions which allow the body to heal itself. If we decide to work together by Zoom, Skype, or in-person, I will send to you a Personal Information and Informed Consent Form which must be completed and returned to me before we utilize these techniques.
