"Tapping" Therapy Helping PTSD Patients
A therapy that has proven successful with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder patients, is now giving some cardiac patients similar results. It's called Emotional Freedom Therapy or Tapping Therapy.
Emotional Freedom Technique is a form of alternative medicine similar to acupuncture or energy medicine. Experts say the brain processes trauma differently than other life experiences and in a sense, we don't get over that experience, so the energy of it gets blocked from moving on and we keep relieving the experience.
The "tapping" is done on what are called meridians which act as train tracks of energy in our bodies.
