1. Background
  1. Based on ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology
  2. We tap endpoints of meridians on our body while focusing on a stressful thought
  3. This sends a calming signal to the amygdala (fight or flight center of body)
  4. We are desensitizing the brain to stress/turning off the stress signal/rewiring the way our brain responds to stress
  5. Research has shown EFT to be helpful for stress, anxiety, pain, limiting beliefs, and weight loss
2. Steps for EFT/Tapping
  1. Pick what you want to tap on (stress or pain)
  2. Rate the level of your problem from 0-10 (ten=worst)
  3. Tap on the points while saying,
    “Even though______(problem), I accept this about myself.”

  4. Take a deep belly breath (4 counts in, 4 counts out)
  5. Re-rate the level of your problem from 0-10 (ten=worst)
  6. If it is now below a 2, you are done!
