Energy Tapping for PTSD

Traumatic experiences can have life-long emotional and psychological consequences if left untreated. For some people, this trauma can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition that produces unwanted physical, psychological and behavioral side effects. Energy tapping for PTSD is one of the most effective ways to cope with and even eliminate these symptoms. It is a scientifically validated method that has helped countless people manage their life after trauma.

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop in individuals after they’ve experienced a traumatic event that was either life-threatening, threatened their safety, or otherwise made them feel helpless. Traumatic events such as war, rape, sexual or physical abuse, a car or plane crash, natural disasters, kidnapping and medical procedures (especially in children) are common causes of PTSD. The intense feelings of fear and loss of control these individuals experience can lead to psychological and physical symptoms that include: flashbacks, intrusive memories, nightmares, emotional numbing, behavioral changes, depression, insomnia, sweating, headaches, stomach problems, muscle tension, and more.

How Does Energy Tapping for PTSD Work?

Traumatic experiences can linger in our bodies for years as post-traumatic stress. This stress creates blocks in our energy system that can lead to emotional and behavioral problems long after the traumatic event has occurred. In order to unblock this energy, certain meridian points of the body are stimulated through energy tapping, which is a simple method of tapping two fingers on these areas.

Energy tapping is based on the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, which corrects the flow and balance of Qi or Chi (life energy) that runs along meridians just beneath our skin. Instead of using needs to stimulate change, however, energy tapping uses acupressure. Once you understand this process and learn where the specific meridian points are in your body, you can learn how to cope with or even eliminate the unwanted side effects of PTSD.

Energy tapping (based on energy psychology) is one of the most efficient ways to create rapid change and effectively treat emotional and behavioral issues that arise from trauma. The best part of this technique is that once you learn how to use it, you can employ it on your own whenever you feel unwanted symptoms arise.
