Basic and Progressive EFT


How does tapping work?

"Energy Psychology works by stimulating energy points on the surface of the skin which, when paired with various psychological procedures, send signals to the brain that may impact stress chemicals such as cortisol and DHEA, deactivate limbic system arousal, and rapidly alter neural pathways." David Feinstein, Phd, Clinical Psychologist

It’s only been in last few years that doctors have acknowledged that negative emotions play a vital role in our physical well being.  In fact our bodies have strong reactions to emotions. Just think about how your heart pounds when you’re frightened, how you cry or get a lump in your throat when you’re sad, how your palms become sweaty when you’re anxious or afraid. And how your stomach gets upset for a variety of emotional reasons. 

The bad news is, if these negative emotions aren’t dealt with, they can have a profound impact on our physical health. Asthma, migraines, ulcers, and chronic fatigue, are often caused by unresolved negative emotions.

How can that be? Why can unresolved emotions make us ill?

The Foundational Statement for Progressive EFT is
“Negative emotions are caused by a disruption
in the body’s energy system.”
In other words, every negative emotion we experience, including depression, anger, frustration, stress, grief, guilt, anxiety, fear, etc., is a result of a blockage somewhere in the body’s meridian system .  This energy is carried by the body's meridian pathways in a similar way that arteries and vessels carry the body’s blood. 

When that energy is blocked or disrupted by a traumatic or unpleasant event (like being screamed at or bullied,losing a loved one, or being humiliated by the boss at work), we feel a negative emotion - like embarrassment, fear, grief or anger. 

There’s another step in the equation, however.  If someone insults you, for example, the end result would most likely be anger.  But what actually happens first is that the insult causes a disruption somewhere in your body’s energy pathways.  It’s that disruption that causes the negative emotion of anger...not the insult itself.  


The Real Culprit

In other words, there’s a "middle man" we never knew about before that's the real villain in the equation.  It's the disruption of our energy that causes the negative emotion.  So rather than just the cause and affect of insult = anger, it's actually insult + energy disruption = anger.   When our blood vessels are broken we bleed.  And when our energy system is "broken" or disrupted we experience a negative emotion. 

This is something we didn't realize until about 25 years ago (although knowledge of the meridian system is thousands of years old). If this equation is true (and we've found that it is), then the logical conclusion is, that if we can dissipate the energy disruption, the resulting negative emotion will be eliminated as well.  And that’s just what happens when the blockage is removed by tapping

Meridian Therapies

There are actually several Meridian or energy-based therapies available today. The umbrella term of Meridian Tapping Techniques encompasses all of them; EFT, Pro EFT, Pro-ER, BASF, EMDR, TFT, TAT and others. Similar to acupressure, you simply tap very lightly on specific meridian points, mostly on the upper body and face. The different component is verbally expressing the emotion or event that is upsettin. Combined with tapping, this sends tiny shock waves or soothing pulses throughout the meridian system. 

By performing this systematic stimulating or tapping of the meridian points, (about 14 in all), while addressing a specific problem, the emotional issue gradually disappears. This simple process balances and re-energizes the system, often in a matter of minutes, clearing blockages and dissipating the negative emotions as you do so.

After learning how to use Pro EFT you will be able to apply it to yourself to dissipate many of life's emotional and physical challenges such as anger, frustration, stress, anxiety, fear, grief, chronic pain, and more. 

You can't possibly comprehend the power of this extraordinary process until you have experienced it yourself.  It only takes a few minutes to learn the basics and to start reaping the benefits of this amazing tool that can change your life!

The best way to learn tapping, in my opinion, is at a Pro EFT Workshop (starting at Level 1) Once you have that foundation, real life experience is necessary to get the hang of it. Beyond the basics you'll need some help with EFT, which is much more complex and expansive than you can imagine. To get to that level we highly recommend doing the EFT Workshops 2 and 3.

Important note: While tapping has produced remarkable clinical results, it has only been used in its current form since the early 80s, and thus considered by traditional medicine to be in the experimental stage.  Therefore users of Meridian Tapping Techniques must take complete responsibility for their use of it.  Although tapping has no side-effects it has been known to bring peace of mind, relaxation, a brighter outlook, better health, more energy and focus, added self-esteem, and to relieve stress, anxiety, chronic pain, and a multitude of other ailments and issues. Lindsay Kenny is not  licensed health care professional.  She is however, an  EFT Master Practitioner, and Life Coach with considerable experiences with these techniques.

Additionally Lindsay cares greatly about the welfare and health of her clients. Often, results are realized from tapping that have not been achieved through other methods or therapies.
