“Tapping,” also known as EFT, is a technique that combines Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.
Jessica Ortner is the NY Times bestselling author of “The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence” and producer of The Tapping Solution, the documentary film on EFT tapping.
She talks about stress – one of the challenges that Tapping can relieve:
“It’s important to first recognize how we experience stress – stress isn’t something that simply happens in our mind – we experience it with our whole body.”

In a post on her site, she summarizes Tapping:
Over the years many of you have heard me talk about “tapping therapy” – an elegant and efficient method for dealing with fears, phobias, trauma, addiction, weight loss, and so much more.
Tapping uses the body’s energy system (just like acupuncture) to clear away blocks that are keeping problems in place.
As you tap on specific points on the body while repeating phrases related to the issue, life-long problems often vanish.
When I first heard about the technique, it sounded too good to be true.
Then I experienced it for myself.
After my husband Michael was trained in tapping more than fifteen years ago, he successfully treated my fear of flying during a very bumpy flight.
After tapping with him for just fifteen minutes, my fear was completely gone (and stayed gone).
That’s all it took for me to take this unusual method seriously.
I began using it myself and then started sharing it with friends and family. I’ve been consistently blown away by the results.
What is Tapping?
Tapping combines acupressure techniques with psychology research on stress relief.
Here is part of a description from the site for the book and film by Nick Ortner: The Tapping Solution
“Tapping,” also known as “EFT,” is a revolutionary technique that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology, with life-altering results.
The technique itself literally involves “tapping” on the meridian points of your body while focusing on the issue you want to work on. This simple-to-learn and easy-to-use technique is, time and again, giving people around the world incredible results.

Tapping for Weight Loss and Body Confidence
Jessica Ortner writes in her book:
If you’re honest with yourself, do you believe that you can “have it all”—that you can feel confident in your body, lose weight and enjoy your life?
For years, I didn’t believe that was possible for the simple reason that it had never been my experience. In fact, I was sure that I could only love my body after I’d lost weight.
Until then, my happiness would have to be on hold. Until I’d lost enough weight, I would shrink emotionally, punish myself every time I saw my reflection, and avoid attracting too much attention.
Since I also believed that weight loss was about limiting pleasure and increasing control—over my appetite, food choices, exercise and more—I could never relax or feel confident in my body or myself.
Even when I did diet long enough to lose weight, my results didn’t last.
I began to believe that I didn’t have the “right” body type, or was missing the “skinny genes” some women seemed to have.
As a result of those beliefs (and others!), I spent years feeling unworthy, sure that I was somehow broken.
Because I believed that I couldn’t be good enough until I lost weight, I also had a bad habit of attracting people, especially men, who didn’t hesitate to insult my weight.
Those are stories for another time, but let me just say that it was an incredibly painful time.
If you’re struggling with feeling good in your own skin, with losing weight and loving your body, you know what I mean.

Cheryl Richardson wrote about the 6th Annual Tapping World Summit in 2014.
Here are some of her comments from an edition of her newsletter – She writes :
It’s an event I’ve been supporting since the beginning because the technique changes lives.
And it’s a tool I’ve used for more than fifteen years and I want lots of people to benefit from using it, too!
Top experts have shown how to use tapping for a variety of issues like physical pain, weight loss, anxiety, healing your body, overcoming emotional obstacles, and much more.
The information is invaluable.
Fifteen years ago, while flying with my husband, Michael, we hit rough weather and I began to panic.
I was a very nervous flyer as it was and the turbulence terrified me.
Because he was trained in the tapping technique early on, Michael knew how to quickly turn my panic into peace.
Within fifteen minutes I was riding the rough air without fear. None. And I’ve continued to fly with ease ever since.
That’s when I decided to learn tapping myself.
I’ve used it with family, friends, and workshop participants and it’s the easiest, quickest method I’ve seen for dealing with all kinds of issues. For example…
I once helped a friend stop a panic attack in five minutes while in the ladies room of a restaurant (and they didn’t come back).
I helped a family member overcome paralyzing grief after losing a pet.
I tapped with a colleague who was desperate to quit smoking and it worked in less than thirty minutes.
Over the years, I’ve used tapping to help retreat participants overcome their fear of illness, heights, cravings, limiting beliefs, etc., and I continue to be blown away by how quickly and elegantly it works.
I support the The Tapping Solution program because I want EVERYONE I know to take advantage of this amazing healing tool.
Every spring I download the whole Tapping Summit onto my iPhone and tap over and over again, during my daily walks. I’m sure the neighbors think I’m nuts :-).
Love, Cheryl Richardson
