<previous> 11/11 <next>
Meridian Tapping Techniques is an "umbrella" term that can be applied to several energy-based tapping therapies including Accutap, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Pro-ER (Progressive Emotional Release), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Net (Neuro Emotional Technique) and TFT (Thought Field Therapy).

How Meridian Tapping Works:

Meridian Tapping Techniques repair blockages or disturbances in the body's energy system created by negative emotions. A person chooses a specific emotion such as feeling anger, frustration, embarrassment, insult, or belittlement to focus on prior to the tapping session. During the tapping sequence the person focuses on the emotion to be reduced or cleared while also making positive statements to offset the negative emotions. The tapping of fingers tips on various points on the body release pent up energies.

Meridian Tapping Founder:

George Goodheart, a chiropractic doctor, is noted for first discovering that tapping the meridians (acupuncture points) was beneficial in the treatment of physical issues. Tapping was done with the finger tips as an alternative to using acupuncture needles. Australian psychiatrist, John Diamond, implemented verbal affirmations to coincide with Goodheart's tapping sequences. A third doctor, psychologist Dr. Roger Callahan who developed TFT added a third component: "focusing" on a negative emotion to clear away.
