Tapping involves physically tapping on the endpoints of major meridians of your body. When you tap on these points, you send a calming signal to your amygdala. Your amygdala is your brain’s fight-or-flight response center and is activated when you feel stress. When you are anxious about a future event, you lose focus and have physical symptoms because of this stress response. You can freeze, fight, or run – but you can’t think, create, or enjoy. Many people power their way through stress but tapping allows you to release this anxiety and turn off the brain’s fight-or-flight response. It tells the body it’s safe and allows the focus, flow, and pleasure to come in.
