Who Believes in Tapping?

Written by: Nick Ortner

If you’ve heard of Malcolm Gladwell’s book, “The Tipping Point,” you know it’s about that moment when something small happens that tips the balance of things, and suddenly an idea, a product, or a phrase, goes viral.

It’s intriguing to me how this happens. (I mean, who can explain why some random silly posts go viral on Facebook with hundreds of millions of shares?)

Gladwell explains that one of the factors that leads to a tipping point is the conditions and circumstances of the times and places in which they occur.

Which leads to my question…

Has Tapping reached the Tipping Point?

In a fairly short time, Tapping has gone from being seen as a weird mind-body modality to being a highly-respected, researched, and proven technique. Along the way, it has become the go-to tool for millions of people around the world.

It’s not hard to see how the conditions and circumstances of the times have led to the massive wave of people who are Tapping, getting results, and excitedly sharing it with others.

We were all in need of an easy, effective way to manage the stress and negative emotions that were making our lives so hard. At the same time, we were awakened to the fact that our minds and bodies work in tandem, and that we required a tool that would address them together.

And it works!

Some of the biggest advocates are professionals across a wide range of fields. From each of their perspectives, the results they’re seeing confirm that Tapping offers profound emotional healing and resolution of the stress factors behind most of our problems.

Research backs them up, too. For those professionals, and for us, this is important.

According to the website, evidencebasedeft.com, “EFT (Tapping) has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 100 papers.” As the positive results of these studies spread, so does the use of Tapping, by individuals and professionals alike. Here are some examples:


The Medical Community

A growing number of doctors and hospitals are incorporating Tapping into their practices to support patients dealing with, among other things:

  • Cancer treatments
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Smoking cessation
  • Pain relief
  • Weight loss
  • Physical trauma

As Eric Robins, MD, says, “Some day the medical profession will wake up and realize that unresolved emotional issues are the main cause of 85% of all illnesses. When they do, EFT will be one of their primary healing tools…as it is for me.”

Many medical professionals are already making that connection, and they’re getting incredible results for their patients because of it. They know that when the connection can be found between physical conditions and negative emotions, Tapping helps to release the stress, rewire the brain, and bring the body back into a healthier balance.

“At our clinic, we are presently using EFT to help patients overcome negative emotions that undermine health, and to eliminate many forms of pain… We also use it to reduce food cravings that can sabotage healthy eating programs, and to implement positive life goals to support optimal health and well being… EFT is now a major component of our treatment program.”

-Dr. Joseph Mercola, Director, Natural Health Center, Chicago, Illinois


Mental Health Providers

Painful memories live inside all of us, to one degree or another. More and more, Tapping is helping mental health professionals treat their clients’ issues faster and more effectively.

“EFT is the single most effective tool I’ve learned in 40 years of being a therapist.”
-Dr. Curtis A. Steele (psychiatrist)

According to an article published in Psychology Today, “Psychologist David Feinstein Ph.D. conducted an excellent broad meta-study of acupoint tapping (EFT) research reviewing 3000 studies of tapping techniques. Dr. Feinstein concluded that EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and other similar protocols for tapping with fingers on acupuncture points successfully released the emotional pain associated with traumatic memories. It did so faster, with less secondary trauma, with longer-lasting results, and more comprehensively than most traditional treatment methods.”

Try to just imagine what releasing emotional pain could do for your life, your health, and your overall sense of happiness. If there had been a way to do that as a child, your life today would be totally different.


Teachers

Educators know their students’ academic success can be undermined by the social and emotional pressures they feel. And in today’s world, those pressures are huge.

This is why Tapping in the classroom is having such a positive impact, and why a growing number of teaching professionals are excited to incorporate it – not only for their students, but for themselves.

This short video shows the kinds of things Tapping is doing for kids, who need so much support.

“I don’t know if there’s anyone who doesn’t have some trauma from their childhood – some little event that really sculpted them and sculpted their beliefs in a direction they might not have wanted. We want these kids to grow up in a different world. To be able to grow up where they can deal with their emotions and traumas and move forward.”

-Alex Ortner, Author of Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs (and father of 3)

Our children deserve the best chance to reach their full potential. Giving them a way to release their fears, anxieties, and other emotional roadblocks could make all the difference to their future health and success.


Business Leaders

It is no secret that we contain within us many of the key barriers to our success in life. That is why business leaders have been gravitating towards Tapping, to give themselves and their employees a way to release those inner barriers and grow their success.

“Tapping is a fast and amazingly simple technique that can clear away even a lifetime habit of self-doubt, fear, insecurity, and self-sabotage leaving one more resourceful, positive, creative and in a word, happy.” -Margaret M. Lynch, author of Tapping Into Wealth.

Jack Canfield, famously called, “America’s Success Coach,” uses Tapping to help corporations, universities, entrepreneurs, and professionals from every walk of life find greater success.

“Now, a new, cutting-edge technique has emerged to make achieving success easier than ever before. Meridian Tapping, sometimes known as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), is a revolutionary new tool to remove the fears, doubts, and upsets that keep you from living according to your values and ideals.”
-Jack Canfield

At this point, Tapping isn’t exactly new. What is new is the way it is spreading throughout the world and changing the lives of millions of people dealing with every imaginable type of problem.

From trauma, physical pain, relationships, illness, weight loss, sadness, anxiety, and so on, to the resolution of all these issues, what people are experiencing is profound and it’s real.


The Personal Tipping Point

For so many people, there comes a moment when they realize they just aren’t reacting the same way they always have. And that Tapping is what helped them clear their old patterns of stress and pain, to allow more positivity and peace.

Here’s a quick testimonial from one of our Tapping Solution App users:

Astonishing Relief – I was skeptical of the download at first and I suffer from severe anxiety. My first basic 10 minute tapping session had me so relaxed I was in tears. I highly recommend this app for my fellow anxiety sufferers. ★★★★★ Salth2odiver
