So why does tapping work?
Our body is an amazing machine, it is constantly regenerating, self-healing, self medicating and working to ensure the continual flow of blood and oxygen to all the organs and to maintain a balance of all the hormones and chemicals produced within.
Our body does this naturally............until we get in the way.
Are you aware that at least 95% of all illness and disease is caused by......
OUR PERCEPTION OF STRESS...
Stress is a natural reaction to challenges and anything that makes us feel unsafe. Stress occurs when your mind believes that you are in some kind of danger – whether emotional or physical.
Your body pumps adrenaline into your system to give you a boost.
This is called the “fight, flight, or freeze” response
The ideal scenario is that only real life threatening situations trigger the stress response in our body which allows us to act quickly with less thought and faster reflexes.
In our society the stress response is often triggered by a ringing phone, a deadline, a boss, a family member, watching television or any number of other non-life-threatening situations.
The long-term effects of continual stress are dangerous – even deadly – to our health and happiness, and, as you can see, stress is everywhere.
Some common effects of excessive stress:
- Tension and anxiety
- Muddled thinking
- Mild depression
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Migraine headache
- Premature aging
Tapping gets you out of the way and allows your body to do what it does naturally.
Tapping on the body´s energy meridians (using some of the Acupuncture points ) effectively sends a message to the brain that says “ I am safe” , "there is no real threat" and the brain then takes the body out of the “fight, flight, or freeze “ mode.
We then become relaxed and allow the body to do what it does naturally.
