EMDR 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!

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.
