Stress Relief Is Literally at Your Fingertips

LIFEPATH

By Sarah Grace Powers

How many times have you felt stressed in the last couple of weeks?

It’s common knowledge that stress is a culprit in causing a myriad of health problems from minor conditions, like upset stomach or tight shoulders, to life-threatening situations like stroke and heart attack.

Although the stress response is a physiological reaction in the body, causing specific hormones to be released, “stress” has become a modern-day malaise. No one likes to feel it, yet we can’t escape it. Unfortunately, many of us try to minimize our stressful feelings with unhealthy behaviors like smoking, overeating, or reaching for the wine bottle.

There are plenty of healthier ways to relieve stress, of course: exercise, meditation, deep breathing, and more. While these are helpful, there is a lesser-known technique quickly gaining respect because of its powerful ability to move your nervous system from the stressful “fight or flight” mode to the healthful “rest and digest.”

This technique is called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) or “tapping.” It works with the body’s energy meridians, similar to the way acupuncture works. Instead of having to go to a trained medical professional who inserts needles into your body though, you can gain relief all by yourself simply by using your fingers to tap on specific points along these meridians.

How can that really work? It just seems crazy that tapping on your face and body could make any sort of difference! And yet, it does. And one of the reasons why has to do with how your brain works.

As you tap you repeat specific words or phrases that literally tell the non-verbal part of your brain that you are safe, all is well, and you can be calm. This part of your brain—called the amygdala—is responsible for keeping you safe from harm. It is extremely valuable in truly life-threatening situations, but unfortunately it has not evolved since we humans had to run from saber toothed tigers. Therefore, it activates with modern-day stressors such as getting yelled at, getting cut off in traffic, or even worry thoughts.

EFT Tapping reduces the stress hormones in your body that your amygdala has so helpfully told your body to produce. And it does a lot more than that! Studies have shown tapping to be effective in reducing physical pain, ending food cravings, losing weight, healing addictions, ending phobias, and much more.
