Stress Relief for Children

Written by: Nick Ortner

One of the things I’m most proud about in sharing Tapping with the world is that we’re not just talking theory or solely doing things online – it’s actually getting Tapping to the places that matter!

And one of the best places to share Tapping is in schools, with kids who need it the most…

Watch that happen before your eyes in this powerful video:

Another place that matters is your own home. So be sure to pick up a copy of my brother Alex’s Tapping for kids book, “Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs: A Tapping Solution Children’s Story”.

It’s great for bedtime reading, and even has a Tapping exercise in the back to help your kids go to sleep. 🙂

5 out of 5 stars: I love love love this book
I love love love this book. I have just started learning about Tapping and thought What a great idea to teach my 9 year old to do it too. The book was a hit with her she loved the story and animations as well as it made it so easy for her to learn how to Tap. Highly recommend it for every age level even adults. 🙂

Yes the little boy I purchased it for loves reading it and does the tapping along with it…his mother has found him reading quietly by himself a number of times. He is only four years old!!!

This is a great book for teaching the whole family relaxation and self care tools. With several pages of specific applications at the end. My 6-year old nephew got it for Christmas (from me:) and the whole family enjoys practicing Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs! So grateful for this book!

    My son hasn’t been suffering with anxiety for a number of years. He is afraid of so many things it is stopping him enjoying his life and being a kid. He is 9 years old. I also suffer from anxiety and would love to be able to implement tapping and share it with others.

    I went through your training for teachers several years ago and have added additional EFT tapping training as well.

    Love to offer these skills and Mindfulness to K-5 in the local school district. Wonderful for children. Thank you for the initial training.

    I have tried helping my 8 year old son with tapping, when he was feeling fearful, and anxious, which caused him headaches. And IT worked, … miraculously !! I want to learn more , how I can use tapping for children.

    I have a grandson who has Cerebral Palsy and is in Special Education classes in middle school. I was wondering if you or anyone else has used Tapping to help this population of students? If so, how can someone help get you into these types of teachers and the parents as well?

    • Nick Ortner says:

      Hi Bev. Although we don’t specialize in tapping for children in special education, we do hope that getting tapping into schools will help all of the children in schools. There may be people who already specialize in this. If you don’t find someone in the practitioner listings on our site, you may want to do an online search to see if there is someone you can speak with. Also, if you would like to learn more about getting tapping into schools, you can sign-up here to find out more from The Tapping Solution Foundation. We wish you and your family all the best. 🙂

    • Nick Ortner says:

      Hi Barbara. Thank you for your interest in the book. It has not yet been translated into Spanish but we will see what we can do in the near future. 🙂
