Here are specific emotional releasing benefits for each of the Tapping Points.
I wish to highlight that EFT can work in 2 particular ways:
- At a self-help tool to manage and significantly reduce emotional feelings which cause anxiety.
- At a deeply transformational therapeutic level, which when led by a trained practitioner, offers life-changing new beginnings free from limiting negative beliefs.
What to do:
If any Tapping point PINGS out at you, I suggest you gently rub/massage that area for a couple of moments, quieten your breathing for a minute or so and you will feel better; able to deal with the rest of the day.
Regardless of how slightly inconvenient or how bloody difficult a problem seems, it probably still needs dealt with. Procrastinating doesn’t help much either and if you are consciously wanting to sort things out then Tapping is a gift which can and will help you.

Intuitively you will favour a point and that’s very useful; you can even massage discreetly when at meetings and noone need know. Possibly you do that unconsciously anyway!
Key point:The self-treating- some emotions are just too difficult to deal with and it is recommended to consult with a qualified practitioner.
