What is TFT or Tapping?
Thought Field Therapy or TFT Tapping is what is what is known as the Original ‘Tapping Technique’, that was discovered, researched, and developed by the late Dr. Roger Callahan PhD in the 1970s, and is now used worldwide by certified TFT Practitioners.
So, what is TFT Tapping? TFT Tapping is a very brief, but highly fast and effective type of methodology, that is easy to learn, and is likened to psychological acupuncture, but without the needles. It works by stimulating the body’s energy meridians, to resolve problems with the body’s emotional control system.
Listed below is a diagram showing all the tapping points that are used in TFT Tapping.
So, how does TFT Tapping work? Whenever we think of something, we are effectively tuning in a specific “Thought Field” in much the same way as a TV must be tuned in to receive a specific channel. Held within that energy field are the coded information patterns used by the mind and body to generate the entire emotional experience associated with that thought. Therefore, the experience is always identical every time – because the same “coded instructions” are followed every time.
TFT Tapping works by getting the person to tap into their own “thought field” that is creating the problem, by getting them to think about it. Once they are in their own “thought field”, then by tapping on certain meridian points on the body in a specific sequence called an Algorithm, depending on the presenting problem to hand, it breaks up the coded instruction, and permanently releases the negative emotional discharge and the problem that goes with it.
Each physical or emotional problem has its own sequence or Algorithm.
What can TFT Tapping help with? TFT Tapping was originally developed as a treatment for phobias and traumatic stress. However, further research has meant that it can now be used to treat a wide variety of physical and emotional problems including: stress and anxiety, panic attacks, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, grief, acute trauma and PTSD, anger, guilt, pain, sexual problems, addictions (including food, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gambling, nail-biting, etc.) and much, much more.
