From time to time I like to share different modalities that I use to help myself or my clients. One of my favourite modalities that works really well is Tapping. I actually get excited about tapping sometimes because it works so well.
Some people call it TFT, which is short for Thought Field Therapy, aka the Callahan Technique. Roger J Callahan, Ph.D. was the founder of this technique. He founded this technique over 30 years ago after discovering it in his practice.
Some people use another version of tapping called EFT which is short for Emotional Freedom Technique. Gary Craig came up with this simplified version of TFT after training with Roger Callahan in the 90’s.
The Basics of Tapping
By tapping certain energy meridian points on your body, you can relieve all sorts of discomforts. It works with Chi Energy and the effect is similar to (but with much faster effects than), acupuncture.
Tapping can be done anywhere. The only tools needed for tapping is two hands, a head and a body.
Tapping can provide immediate and measureable relief for almost anything. All you need to do is rate your discomfort on a scale of 1-10, do your tapping and then rate your discomfort again ~ it will have been reduced. Sometimes you will need to do the tapping sequence a few times in a row. To learn the sequences, you can go here, or just get this Free Stress Buster Guide.

Additional Resources for Tapping
My All-time favourite book on Tapping, is Tapping the Healer Within by Roger J Callahan. (Clicking this link will bring you to tons of resources and training on tapping).
My second Favourite Tapping Resource is this FREE Stress Buster Guide. The guide provides a great introduction to TFT and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who is even a little bit curious about this modality.
Other ‘honorable mentions’ go to the books below. I get emails from Nick Ortner and I thoroughly enjoy reading his info.

Who Tapping Won’t Work For
- people who don’t bother to use it
Yes, that’s it. Tapping is that effective, it will work for everyone. No exceptions. You don’t need to believe in it, you don’t need to think anything about it at all.
Tapping works on the energy meridians in your body and if you tap them it WILL work for you.
