Can strategically tapping on your body alleviate anxiety and stress?
Dr. Mojas calls tapping "one of the most effective self-help techniques she has ever discovered." She explains it involves tapping on specific acupressure points while focusing on anything that is upsetting or a source of stress. She says it helps to turn off the brain stress response and can be used to treat physical and emotional issues.
The psychologist shares she dealt with a frozen shoulder for 2 years and says after just tapping for 15 minutes, she finally found relief. She says the tapping technique works best when focused on just one issue. She contends the tapping causes the brain to go from an anxious state to a more meditative and calm mode.
Some of the essential tapping points include, according to Dr. Mojas:
- Above the eye
- The side of the eye
- Under the eye
- Under the nose
- Under the lip
- Under the collar bone
- Under the armpit
- Side of the hand
- Top of the head
"When we're okay, when we're self-regulating, when we are managing our stress well, we can show as the best version of ourselves," the psychologist notes.
