Terri’s Story on Tapping

Have you ever noticed that when you feel stressed or upset about something you sometimes put your head in your hands? Or rubbed your eyebrow or temple when you feel stressed or worried? Maybe if something startles you, you may put your hand on your chest? It’s just something we intuitively do to feel calmer. People touch, hold, pat, and rub ourselves for comfort. We feel powerful emotions… some feel bad, some feel good. We talk to ourselves… even though it is often negative. Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT is a soothing technique that works with the body’s energy system that releases feelings of stress, anxiety, pain and distressing thought. Commonly called, “Tapping” for short because it is done by literally tapping specific points with your fingertips.
