This week we’re going to try something new. Look at it as “new approach” for a New Year. This is a contemporary therapy that combines the old with the new. It is called “tapping”. The video below will introduce you to it. It is quite simple to follow even if you have no experience with tapping.
Tapping is used primarily for the release of negative emotions and to ease the physical and spiritual effects of these emotions. Worry, anxiety, fear, anger, agitation and grief are released by a combination of ancient and contemporary methods.
Tapping makes use of the meridians and the most sensitive points along those pathways referred to as acupoints as described and practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Along with the use of this physiological energy system, principles of current psychological modalities are applied to problems that may be deep-seated and of long duration. With the assistance of a mental health care professional, almost anyone can achieve a state of emotional release and gain an enhanced feeling of well-being.
A word of caution: the video here is not intended for long-term or severe psychological problems.
After trying this simple tapping exercise, please feel free to leave a comment in the “leave a reply” box below.
