EFT Tapping Goes Mainstream

Hardly a day goes by now that I don’t hear about a new article talking about the benefits of using EFT tapping. New books and videos are coming out about the science of EFT tapping. Articles about tapping are appearing in the popular magazines and newspapers worldwide and being talked about by talk show hosts on television. Friend and colleague Dr. Craig Weiner provides a helpful webpage called Tapping in the News that lists recent appearances of EFT in the media.

This all makes me very happy! I love using EFT for myself, with my clients, and anyone else who will listen. The more people know about tapping the more we can all benefit from this helpful tool.

I admit that I have Google alerts set up to let me know right away when there is any news mentioning EFT tapping. But even when visiting relatives I am surprised when they show me an article they found in their Woman’s World or some other magazine that gives a thorough explanation of the tapping process and what it can be used for.

One exciting addition to the knowledge base is a new book just released by Dr. Peta Stapleton from Bond University called The Science behind Tapping. I affectionately refer to Dr. Stapleton as the energizer bunny of EFT research. She has conducted more scientific studies on the efficacy of using EFT tapping for things like food cravings and weight issues, pain, stress, depression, trauma, and PTSD than anyone I know. Some of her studies even include functional MRI images of the brain before and after tapping showing clear results.

Her book includes the mounting evidence of the positive effect of EFT tapping on study participants both in the short term and long term. She includes case studies and descriptions of the methodology. She’s conducted meta-analyses, combined studies of multiple clinical trials, which yield even greater statistical power and proof.

There is no longer any doubt that EFT tapping is a proven effective technique for managing many physical, psychological, and emotional issues. The studies are many and more are continuing. My hope is that very soon EFT tapping is a common tool in every household. It is easy to learn, it works quickly, and can make a positive difference in your life and the lives of your family and friends. It works great with children! They don’t care how it works; they just know they feel better after tapping. Imagine if we had a generation of kiddos who could self-regulate their stress. It’s possible.

Please remember: It's important to contact a professional if things feel too big for you, whether it be a physician, psychologist, psychiatrist, or certified EFT practitioner. Never discontinue your current medications without first consulting your doctor.
