  • Tapping increases the flow of electrical energy through the nervous system to the brain, sending signals to specific brain areas aroused by the spoken phrases and calming the brain's emotion and stress centers.

  • This calming response can elicit new emotional responses to a memory. Previous associations of alarm and distress can be replaced with associations of ease and neutrality.

  • Through neuroplastic re-wiring of the brain, thoughts, memories, sensations and patterns of behaviors can be processed and experienced in a new way.

Dr. Peta Stapleton succinctly expresses it this way:


“It is though we are engaging these negative feelings or sensations just long enough to feel them, then we hit the delete button through the tapping.  It is the tapping process that calms the physiological response from the body.  Once this is released, cognitive shifts may surface naturally.”
