How to do EFT Tapping

A SIMPLE GUIDE

Tapping Basics

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is designed as a self-help tool to help manage distress, fear and physical pain. The most effective way to achieve relief is to bring the problem to mind – it must be a real situation rather than a general feeling. For example: “I feel worried about my upcoming presentation” is more effective than a general “I feel worried”.

Grade the level of distress or pain and give it a score from 0 to 10 with ten being the highest rating.

KARATE CHOP POINT

Start by tapping on the side of your hand (the karate chop point) and say the affirmation–
“Even though (whatever the problem is), I deeply and completely accept myself”

Examples:
“Even though I am angry at my friend, I deeply and completely accept myself” or
“Even though I have this sharp pain in my knee, I deeply and completely accept myself”

Repeat the statement 3 times while tapping the karate chop point.

TAPPING POINTS

Now tap the rest of the points while saying a short reminder phrase. Tap each point 7 to 10 times.

Example from above:
“This anger at my friend” or “This sharp pain in my knee”

EB – Beginning of Eyebrow

SE – Side of the Eye

UE – Under the Eye

UN – Under the Nose

CH – Crease in Chin

CB – Just below the Collar Bone

UA – Under the Arm

RC – Front on Ribcage

TH – Top of Head

Repeat this cycle two or three times

Re-evaluate the level of intensity of the emotion or pain.

Repeat the entire process until distress or discomfort is diminished to a level 2 or less.
