Tapping is an Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT healing tool using the similar idea and method of acupuncture and acupressure without the use of needles as an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. The Tapping process is a mind-body method of tapping acupuncture points on the hands, face, and body with your fingertips as you focus on the physical issue or feeling you're hoping to resolve as well as assisting in the reduction of physical pain, stress, anxiety, improve performance, lessen cravings, and help resolve fears. 

This Tapping Technique, developed by Gary Craig, is used to restore the balance of your body’s energy. It’s believed that restoring this energy balance can relieve symptoms a negative experience or emotion may have caused. The Tapping technique can be used as often as needed in order to experience your personal freedoms from emotional issues of past or present, and any physical pain, thereby increasing your personal physical comfort and emotional peace. 

Stress does not only exist in adults, but in children of all ages as well. Tapping can address a long list of specific issues such as daily performance, social and emotional development, anxiety, anger, trauma, ADD, etc.  Studies have shown that EFT Tapping reduces cortisol, a stress hormone, levels in the body. Some have felt the reduction of anxiety in under 10 minutes.
