Episode: 030 - "Tapping for Peace of Mind" with Dr. Dawson ChurchSarah Spencer 05 April 2017
The Genie In Your Genes
I had taken a class on EFT, better known as tapping certain acupuncture points to relieve stress and pain. I admit, I felt pretty silly tapping my forehead, under my arms and near my eye sockets next to devout “believers” in the technique. I initially wrote it off as a bunch of "hooey," until I had a riding accident causing excruciating pain. My horse ran off with my friend chasing after him and there I sat alone in the woods. Faced with no choice, I tapped. Like Dorothy with her red shoes, I desperately wanted relief -
“Even though my leg may fall off, I still love and accept myself.” Tap. Tap. Tap. Unbelievably, I began to feel better. I chuckled and thought,
Is it really THAT simple???
I was hooked and HAD to find out who was behind this tapping phenomenon.
