Mercola.com, EFT-Alive.com and EmoFree.com provide information on tapping therapy. Also known as the Emotional Freedom Technique or Meridian Tapping Technique, tapping therapy is a form of psychological acupuncture that claims to alleviate physical pain and improve emotional health.
Created by Gary Craig, tapping therapy is based on electromagnetic energy that flows through the body and regulates human health. The process involves tapping specific energy meridians on the head and chest using the fingertips, while thinking about the problem and voicing positive statements. Those who practice tapping therapy claim that it clears emotional blocks from the human body, restores the mind-body balance and helps with stress, anxiety and depression as well as physical problems such as chronic pain and allergies.
