Tapping to Reduce Stress with Nick Ortner PH223

October 26, 2021

Nick Ortner is the creator and executive producer of the documentary film, The Tapping Solution, as well  the author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Tapping Solution: A revolutionary system for stress-free living.  Tapping is also sometimes referred to as Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT.  Nick began sharing this stress and anxiety-relieving method with others in 2007 after experiencing tremendous success using the protocol for his own personal pain relief.  He has gone on to become a highly regarded public speaker, presenting live tapping sessions at seminars, hosting an annual world summit, and appearing in numerous well known media outlets, such as CNN, Psychology Today, and The Dr. Oz Show.

In this conversation, we discuss what tapping is and why it can change emotions by calming the amygdala, circumstances in which tapping can be helpful, and the data being collected to objectively demonstrate tapping’s effectiveness.  As a bonus, Nick leads us through an interactive tapping session focused on relieving stress and anxiety.
