Meridian Tapping or Meridian Tapping Techniques (MTT) are techniques that utilize meridians (or acupressure points) to decrease or resolve negative emotions and/or emotionally based physical issues. MTT is actually an “umbrella” term covering several energy-based tapping therapies. Some of these therapies include: Accutap, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Pro-ER (Progressive Emotional Release), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Net (Neuro Emotional Technique) and TFT (Thought Field Therapy). These are many di erent techniques and methodologies with a common goal. The most common and well known technique is EFT.
Tapping is mainly used to turn o the stress signal and heal the physical responses our body makes in reaction to painful experiences (both physical and/or emotional). It can be used to control or break habits, decrease stress and/or anxiety, eliminate or resolve fears/phobias, and even reduce or eliminate negative self talk. Meridian tapping has also been used with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
