Gratitude Statements and Tapping Exercise

A key part of EFT Tapping is using gratitude statements during the Tapping exercise. These statements, crafted with intention, reinforce your lives' positive aspects, deepening the experience of gratitude.

EFT TAPPING Points and Their Significance

Understanding and correctly stimulating Meridian points is crucial in EFT Tapping. Each point corresponds to different emotional states and aspects of well-being. 

Meridians, in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and other traditional healing systems, are considered channels or pathways through which vital energy, called "qi" or "chi," flows within the body (2). 

These meridians are essential components of the body's energy system and play a crucial role in various aspects of health and well-being. Focusing on these points while expressing gratitude greatly amplifies the positive effects.
