A few years back I was introduced to EFT, the Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as tapping). I liked the idea of taking my healing into my own hands utilizing the power of my own body and mind.
The definition of this work according to The Tapping Solution Foundation is, “The practice consists of tapping with your fingertips on specific meridian points while talking through traumatic memories and a wide range of emotions.” The full EFT tapping sequence, which Katie walks us through in the video below, includes tapping nine points on the body. Once you learn the technique, it’s something you can do anywhere, without any tools or help.
My personal experience working with local practitioner Katie Baumtrog and then on my own has been so empowering. Katie has the experience to guide me through anything, to meet me where I am, and to find words when at times I can’t find my own. She has supported me through traumatic memories landing during a session, holding my energy in a space of love, and bringing me through to a place of being grounded and certain.
EFT is easy enough to learn and remember such that using it on your own in your personal life is a snap. Any time I’m feeling unsafe, uncertain, or life gets shaky for a minute, I can tap right through it. I’m the girl you see tapping on the top of her head while sitting at the stoplight. I’m also the girl tapping on the karate chop point during a meeting to keep me grounded and confident.
This work has opened up so much for me that we’ve also had our children work with Katie with fantastic results. Learn more about tapping for kids and follow along on a kid-focused session we held via Zoom.
