Have You Heard Of EMDR or Tapping? 2 Big Reasons To Find Out! Ilissa Banhazl, MFT

yoga #5EMDR and Tapping are techniques used for reducing anxiety, depression, processing trauma and a host of other conditions. EMDR uses eye tacking whereas Tapping uses physical touch.

For our purposes I will discuss “Tapping”. EMDR is directed more towards trauma.

1. Tapping is a physical way to integrate the mind and body by focusing on positive memories and adding physical touch. You actually tap yourself! Right, left, 12 times….

2. By doing this you strengthen your positive thoughts which then effects your entire being!

To learn more about Tapping read: Tapping In: A Step-by-Step to Activate Your Healing Resources Through Bi-Lateral Stimulation by Laurel Parnell, PHD. (Amazon)

This book will give you a good understanding of the concepts underlying Tapping and will talk you through various exercises using positive thinking and Tapping. I suggest you read the book and find a therapist who specializes in Tapping and get started right away. What have you got to lose? You can only feel better!

Like anything else you have to stop rushing around and put these exercise into practice. I guess it depends on how much you want to feel better… : )
