“Tapping” is a simple stress management tool – we stimulate specific points of our face and body, which initiates a cascade of shifts in the amygdala and nervous system. The body gently shifts into a better balanced state as a result. Recent studies of Evidence Based Clinical EFT Tapping shows a 43% drop in cortisol after one hour of group Tapping. Tapping works especially well for those who are willing to explore how stress shows up through the nervous system as physical sensations. It can also be a great tool for those who want to meditate, but the monkey mind is way too busy to allow you to sit still.
