“Energy Tapping” is very similar to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Many of you are familiar with EFT already. Authors Drs. Galo and Vincenzi based their system on Roger Callahan’s earlier meridian tapping method, much as Gary Craig did to put together EFT.
In the Acknowledgements section, the authors say:
“We are deeply indebted to the contributions of Huang Ti, who catalogued meridian theory approximately 4500 years ago; George J. Goodheart, founder of applied kinesiology; and John Diamond and Roger Callahan, for their contributions to the application of meridian theory in the treatment of emotional problems.”
You can see a few hints here that would indicate that Energy Tapping is primarily used for emotion-related issues. These “emotion-related issues” include the obvious phobias, trauma, anger, and sports performance matters. They also include addictions, blood pressure problems, and assorted diseases of the immune system.
Unlike Mr. Craig’s EFT, but quite in line with Mr. Callahan’s approach, Energy Tapping suggests a separate sequence of points to tap for each problem or set of problems. Each sequence is laid out in a manner that is very easy to understand and each one includes a clear diagram. Most of the diagrams are simple line-drawings.
My copy is a trade paperback. I don’t know how all the pictures and charts will translate into an ebook, if one is published. The charts and pictures definitely make this book very easy to use.
The text is clear and well-written, by the way. It is simply a topic for which diagrams are always useful, no matter what your level of skill with and knowledge of meridians might be.
If you are interested in meridian work – or you have an emotional issue you’re working on – this is a book you’ll want to add to your energy-working collection.
(If you can only afford one or the other, buy Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine first, but Energy Tapping should still be high on your list.)
