Tapping is a variation of EMDR techniques...Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing. Originally it was conceived as a visual technique where as a person recounts traumatic experiences with their therapist, who is waving two fingers with a set rhythm for the client to see while they speak.

I was skeptical about this at first, but have since heard some reputable, scientific people come forward and praise this approach.

While I'm not positive, I believe this tapping is a tactile alternative to the visual technique originally pioneered with EMDR.

great article........thanks for sharing.............

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

We get a health and wellness newsletter at my work place. It had an article on tapping your head to control cravings. I checked it out on the web:
