·       The Science Of Meridian Tapping – biochemical functions

We have 50 to 100 trillion cells in our bodies!
EVERY CELL in our body has up to one million cell receptor sites to take in nutrients, proteins, vitamins & minerals to nourish each cell, keeping it in balance.

That event can be thoughts we have, something that happens to us, something we witness happening to someone else, an injury, a trauma, etc.

The hypothalamus releases a cascade of chemicals that are called peptides
These peptides are short chain amino acids that we experience as an emotion or sensation; all 32 emotions are simply chemical combinations

These peptides dock onto cell receptor sites throughout the body
Now nutrients, proteins, vitamins and minerals can’t enter those receptor sites

If the chemical/emotion isn’t naturally processed out of receptor sites it remains there.
Eventually these receptor sites shrink up and die and the cell divides

The body then makes more receptor sites for that same chemical/emotion and less for nutrients, proteins, vitamins, and minerals

We then spend our time trying to deal with the event and these unprocessed chemicals/emotions on a psychological level (mental) rather than the physiological (physical) level that it happened on!
That’s also why it feels like your problem is getting worse. It’s not your imagination, it’s an accumulation of those chemicals in your cell receptors; it’s a biochemical response your body is having.
The things that happen to us happen on a physiological level. They literally bypass our conscious mind and happen biochemically and physiologically to us. But we end up spending our time trying to deal with them psychologically and mentally.  It’s like using a hammer to do the job when instead you really need to use a screwdriver. Edited from Sports Performance Pioneer Introduction to The Science of Tapping, By Stacey Vornbrock, M.S.,

What do the Emotional Freedom Techniques do?

EFT speaks directly to your body, bypassing the conscious mind, and completes the processing of those chemicals out of the cell receptors, returning your body to a state of balance.

This is accomplished through a series of taps on end acupuncture points on your face and hands. There are no needles involved and it is a do-it-yourself technique. Once learned, you will literally have this tool at your fingertips for the rest of your life!

 And unlike other techniques, since we’re speaking directly to your body and not your mind, you don’t have to believe it will work in order for it to work. You can remain completely skeptical and still get great results!


The Science of EFT

  • You can remain completely skeptical and still get great results. Unlike other techniques, EFT speaks directly to your body and not your mind, so you don’t have to believe it will work in order for it to work.
  • Tapping is not designed to replace anything you are already doing in your life. Use it as an addition to good nutrition, chiropractic, naturopathic and modern medical care. In fact, EFT compliments any other modality that is already adding to your health, well-being and life.

Cellular healing with EFT also allows complimentary therapies such as massage, chiropractic, nutritional, physical therapy, etc. to advance at a deeper, more beneficial level.
