Tapping for Stress Reduction Course

This audio program teaches how to use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) for stress.

EFT is a brief and highly effective intervention combining elements of exposure and cognitive therapy, and somatic stimulation. It is often referred to as ‘Tapping’ as it uses a two finger tapping process with a cognitive acceptance statement.  EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals.

Australian research has found EFT for obesity and food cravings and weight management to be extremely successful and durable over time.  Effectiveness has also been established for stress, phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and pain.

This program is self paced, although we will remind you to stay engaged. We know EFT / Tapping works best if you get into a habit of using it frequently, and apply it to your own specific situation.

We hope you enjoy this stress management technique!
