Tapping is an acupressure technique that activates points on the meridians in the same way as acupuncture. This Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) was developed by Gary Craig in the 1990s based on his study of work done by Roger Callahan in Thought Field Therapy (TFT). He simplified the process to this basic recipe of 8 tapping points. Since this standardization, many studies have found Tapping leads to a significant reduction in pain and stress. For example, it has been effective in providing relief from fibromyalgia, PTSD, and sustained weight loss.
