Tap Out Of It

Do you remember the scene in Moonstruck, where Cher slaps Nicholas Cage? (I loved that movie! You can watch that slap here.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0x-fkSYDtUY.

My title for this post is a play on the words from that movie and the “tap” in “tap out of it”, has to do with a Technique called (EFT) Emotional Freedom Technique; which is a powerful approach that helps resolve emotional and physical distress. EFT works by having the recipient “tune into” a negative emotion, tap a set of acupressure treatment points and perform other energy balancing exercises to help the mind/body heal itself. This process can take from five minutes to an hour depending on the number of separate emotional parts of a feeling or a memory; which need to be treated.

A Stanford engineer named Gary Craig developed EFT. He had a life long interest in helping people become more successful and eventually became a personal performance coach. In the early 90’s he studied Thought Field TherapyTM with its discoverer, Roger Callahan, Ph.D., a psychologist.

Dr. Callahan undertook a study of the application of a technique called Applied Kinesiology (AK) to the treatment of phobias and published what he learned in his first book, in 1985, Five Minute Phobia Cure. He discovered that, not only phobias, but also most emotional distress could be relieved. He used AK to assess which energy meridians needed treatment and then applied treatment to those meridians.

Nick Ortner, author of “The Tapping Solution” has expanded on the work of Dr. Callahan and Gary Craig. His organization holds Tapping World Summits; which allows people all over the planet to have access to this elegant technique. To get an understanding of what this technique is I have included a link to a video that demonstrates Mr. Ortner tapping with world-renowned author and mind/body guru Louise Hay.

In the 1970’s Ms. Hay wrote the book, Heal Your Body, which offers positive new thought patterns to replace negative emotions. She has been an inspiration to many and has sold 50 Million of her books. WOW! Hopefully you will enjoy this video as much as I did and if you have any mind/body issues perhaps you can “Tap Out Of It!”
