Have you ever seen a really great movie? The first thing you want to do is tell all your friends about it, right?

Now imagine experiencing something that has helped you when nothing else was working. Something that has helped you through some hard times in your life and has helped you create more joy than ever before. Just like that great movie, all you really want to do is tell everyone you know about it!

That’s why The Tapping Solution was made. Our purpose is that of spreading a message of hope, healing and joy so that people can experience “it” for themselves. We don’t want to tell you what to do or make claims about what is “right” or “wrong.” We just want to share the information that has changed our lives so you can try it for yourself.

Since saying, “Hey, I want to teach you an amazing tool to help change your life” is a lot harder than just saying, “Check out this great movie,” we decided to make a film about Meridian Tapping. The fuel behind this movie is our own personal experiences and the experiences of thousands of others who have used this tool with success.

All of us have experienced what Meridian Tapping can really do.

Our own curiosity has led us to try it on everything we can think of.

This is our adventure and also yours. We didn’t really know what we were getting ourselves into. We just know that this is our way of contributing to the amazing world we co-exist in and we can only hope that our efforts can move and help you reach your unlimited potential.

The Tapping Solution, LLC is Committed to Supporting Causes Around the World that Make a Real Difference

During the 2011 Tapping World Summit, a free online event attended by over 300,000 people, we committed to raising $50,000 to support the amazing organization featured below, that is providing trauma relief to genocide survivors in Rwanda.

The goal was met and we’ll be reporting on further results shortly!

Dear Nick,

How can we ever thank you, Alex and the Tapping Solution family for sharing and supporting our vision to Create Global Healing with $110,000 in donations from the last two Tapping Summits?!

Because of you, Project LIGHT: Rwanda – the world’s first international youth healing, heart-centered leadership and entrepreneurship program based on Tapping – has been operational for a whole year! We strongly believe that this new form of humanitarian aid serving orphan genocide survivors can provide greater legitimacy and fuel the movement to bring Tapping to those who need it most around the world.

With gratitude, love, joy and wonder for your generosity of spirit and resources,

Lori Leyden, PhD
Founder, Create Global Healing
Co-Creator, Project LIGHT: Rwanda

During the 2010 World Summit, we committed to raising $15,000 to buy “Tappy Bears” and other much needed materials to support the amazing work being done by Deborah Miller. Watch the moving video below to learn more.

About Us

Nicolas Ortner - Producer of The Tapping SolutionNicolas Ortner is CEO of The Tapping Solution, LLC, a company with a mission to bring simple, effective, natural healing into the mainstream through Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or “tapping.” Tapping is a healing modality that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.

Nick’s goal is to empower people to create healthy, financially abundant and stress-free lives through his books, films, CDs, online events and speaking engagements attended by participants from all over the world.

His bestselling book, “The Tapping Solution: A Revolutionary System for Stress-Free Living,” was published by Hay House in 2013. Prior to that, Nick created and produced the breakthrough documentary film, “The Tapping Solution,” which follows ten people who used tapping to overcome tremendous challenges, including 30 years of chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, insomnia, devastating grief and more. Both Nick’s book and film document real and extraordinary results that have inspired tens of thousands to follow suit by successfully applying tapping to their lives.

Nick has also produced first-of-their-kind online programs that teach easy, effective ways to apply tapping to anything limiting a person’s life or health. Some noteworthy examples are: The “Tapping World Summit,” a free, worldwide online event that just celebrated its fifth successful season and has been attended by over 500,000 people (www.tappingworldsummit.com); the “Tapping Insiders Club,” a monthly membership program filled with articles, interviews, and videos with experts from the tapping field (www.tappinginsidersclub.com); and Nick’s popular seven-week EFT coaching programs, which  cover common issues such as finances, weight loss and more.

A dynamic speaker, Nick has presented breakthrough live tapping sessions and has shared the stage with speakers of the caliber of Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Lynne McTaggart, Dr. Joseph Mercola, and others.

Nick and the Tapping Solution team are committed to spreading tapping throughout the world, and particularly to supporting its revolutionary and world-changing usage. They’ve raised over $250,000 for tapping-related charities such as ProjectLight: Rwanda, which aids genocide victims in that country (http://projectlightrwanda.com/), The Veterans Stress Project, for veterans with PTSD (http://www.stressproject.org/), and You Can Thrive! for women with cancer (http://youcanthrive.org/). In 2013, Nick created The Tapping Solution Foundation, which has already raised over $100,000 for charitable work in Newtown, CT to support the community after the tragic shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Nick lives in Newtown, CT with his wife, Brenna and is already working on his next book.
