Tapping Therapy – Where does the tapping therapy originate?

For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine has known that the human being has an invisible meridian system connected to organs and through which “Qi”, the energy of life, flows. Negative emotions like anger, sadness or fear are linked to this energy system. Utilizing this knowledge as well as his psychological intuition, American psychologist, Roger Callahan developed the “Thought Field Therapy” in the 1980‘s. Callahan‘s insights were the forerunner of a variety of tapping techniques like Meridian Energie Techniken (M.E.T.®), Emotional Freedom Technique (E.F.T.), Meridian Tapping Therapies, and Tapping Acupressure. These and others are part of the developing field of energetic psychology.

What to expect in a therapy session?

The individual sessions are done in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. First, a specific problem is defined. Then, the patient is asked to state the corresponding negative emotions (e.g. anger, sadness, or fear). While repeatedly naming these negative emotions, various acupressure points in the face, upper body, and hands, are gently tapped. Within a short period of time, this method helps release any blockages in the body’s energy system responsible for those negative emotions. At the end of the session, the patient evaluates himself to determine if anything in connection with his problem has changed. Thus, the patient knows after his initial therapy session, whether the tapping therapy has worked.
