A recent survey came out of people in Britain that found a very disturbing trend which shows that the average pensioner 65 and over, is on an average of five medications and that some people were even on over 20 medications. You may need a medication. I’m not in any way putting down what goes on in surgeries, although they do get bonuses currently in the United Kingdom for prescribing drugs.
We do sometimes need all those things, but we need them in context and we need alternatives when applicable and beneficial to the patient. Countless clinical trials and case studies have been undertaken and have helped to prove the effectiveness of Tapping and on your overall well-being.
What we alluded to earlier was the fact that Heart Centred Tapping goes deeper than traditional forms of tapping but even just tapping on its own has an impressive effectiveness and great results:
1. Helps you instantly relax
Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that stimulating acupressure points through Tapping reduces blood flow to the amygdala, which leads to an increase in endorphins, an increase in soothing GABA waves and reduced cortisol levels. The result is an instant sensation of calmness, and a dramatic reduction in anxiety symptoms.
2. Reduces your pain
Multiple studies have shown that acupoint stimulation through tools like Tapping – even without needles – results in pain belief beyond anything achievable by conventional medication.
3. Effective treatment for your anxiety disorders
A study conducted by Dr. Joaquin Andrade on 5,000 participants suffering from anxiety disorders showed that approximately 50% more patients who underwent energy psychology treatments like Tapping reported complete remission of symptoms when compared to those who underwent conventional treatment.
4. Dramatically alleviates your Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
In a clinical trial at Marshall University Medical School, 32 war veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) were put through a series of Tapping sessions. After just 6 sessions, 87% of these subjects were cleared from any further symptoms of PTSD. As a comparison, conventional therapy typically cures only 40% of PTSD patients.
5. Tapping helps reduce your phobias
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology in 2003 showed that one Tapping session with 35 participants was enough to demonstrate a significant decrease in specific phobias, for instance the phobia of small animals, when compared to conventional treatments like deep breathing. In follow-up tests 6 to 9 months later, those who had experienced Tapping reported even better improvements.
