EPISODE: 67 | DATE: January 20, 2022
“And what we do with tapping – also known as EFT – is you give yourself this opportunity to get clear on what’s stressing you out. So you’re not jumping to the positive. It’s not wishful thinking. You’re giving yourself space to say, “This is how I feel.”

It’s a stress-relief practice that combines ancient accupressure points with modern psychology to help to calm the nervous system down in a matter of minutes.
