CLEANING AND PRESSURE WASHING
OF VARIOUS AREAS
AT THE PIARCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Tapping restores the body s energy
balance and negative emotions are con-
quered. The basic technique requires
you to focus on the negative emotion
at hand: a fear or anxiety, a bad mem-
ory, an unresolved problem or anything
that s bothering you. While maintain-
ing your mental focus on this issue,
use your fingertips to tap five to seven
times each on 12 of the body s meridian
points. Tapping on these meridian
points---while concentrating on accept-
ing and resolving the negative emo-
tion---will access your body s energy,
restoring it to a balanced state.
You may be wondering about these
meridians. Put simply, energy circulates
through your body along a specific net-
work of channels. You can tap into this
energy at any point along the system.
This concept comes from the doctrines
of traditional Chinese medicine, which
referred to the body s energy as "ch i."
In ancient times, the Chinese discovered
100 meridian points. They also discov-
ered that by stimulating these meridian
points, they could heal. Call it energy,
call it the source, call it life force, call
it ch i... Whatever you want to call it,
In some ways, tapping is similar to
acupuncture. Like tapping, acupuncture
achieves healing through stimulating
the body s meridians and energy flow.
However, unlike tapping, acupuncture
involves needles! "No needles" is def-
initely one of the advantages of tapping.
Acupuncture also takes years to master.
Acupuncture practitioners must mem-
orise hundreds of meridian points along
the body; the knowledge and training
take years to acquire. Tapping is simple
and painless. It can be learned by any-
one. And you can apply it to yourself,
whenever you want, wherever you are.
It s less expensive and less time con-
suming. It can be used with specific
emotional intent towards your own
unique life challenges and experiences.
Most importantly, it gives you the
power to heal yourself, putting control
over your destiny back into your own
hands. The science behind tapping s
succes, like many healing arts that draw
upon ancient wisdom, has been met
with a fair share of skepticism.
Many doctors and psychologists
have been quick to dismiss it as
"woo woo," despite the heaping
anecdotal evidence from practi-
tioners and people who have used
Emotional Freedom Technique
(EFT), on their own. In recent years
however, there s been a growing
pool of undeniable research that
proves what millions of people the
world over have known for some
time now: that EFT produces real,
lasting breakthroughs and signif-
icantly improves or even eliminates
conditions that hospital treatments,
medication and years of psy-
chotherapy often fail to adequately
Studies done at no less than
Harvard Medical School verify these
assertions. Research done at the
prestigious university during the
last decade found that the brain s
stress and fear response---which is
controlled by an almond-shaped
part of your brain called the amyg-
dala---could be lessened by stim-
ulating the meridian points used
in acupuncture, acupressure and
of course, tapping. Although these
studies focused on acupuncture
and as such, used needles, follow-
up double-blind research revealed
that stimulating the points through
pressure, as we do in tapping, gave
rise to a similar response!
Another exciting set of research
was undertaken by Dr Dawson
Church. His team performed a ran-
domised controlled trial to study
how an hour-long tapping session
would impact the stress levels of
83 subjects. To do this, Dr Church
and his team measured their level
of cortisol, a hormone secreted by
the body when it undergoes stress.
Their findings? The average level
of cortisol reduction was 24 per
cent, with a whopping reduction
of almost 50 per cent in some sub-
jects! In comparison, there was no
significant cortisol reduction in
those who underwent an hour of
traditional talk therapy. Dr Church
also created The Stress Project,
which teaches tapping to war vet-
erans suffering with post-traumatic
stress disorder (PTSD).
The results have been astounding:
an average 63 per cent decrease in
PTSD symptoms after six rounds
of tapping. It s mind-blowing and
exciting research, which has con-
verted many non-believers in the
scientific community along the way.
All signs indicate that this trend of
revealing research and swayed skep-
tics will continue as millions of
people around the globe continue
to discover the power of tapping.
Tapping is simple and painless
