  • Powerful Calming Can Happen!

    The secret sauce is EFT Meridian Tapping ....

    What is Tapping ?

    Tapping is an Nerve Calming & De-stressing Tool

    Tapping is a very simple, easy to learn and use tool that is freely available at your fingertips. It doesn't cost money, and can be done anytime, anywhere.

     

    Tapping helps calm down the sympathetic nervous system, so the agitation and over-excitement is calmed. It can be a great additional classroom management tool that doesn't take much effort or time.

     

    Tapping is effective, simple, and easy-to-learn (and FREE) tool to release stress anytime, anywhere. Used effectively in the classroom, the positive side effects can include increased empathy and understanding, increased emotional resiliency, improved test scores (due to lowered test anxiety), and so much more!

    Why & When to Tap ?

    When You Want to Regain Your Calm

    Kids and adults alike make better choices when we are calm. Kids these days are busy, rather overwhelmed, and constantly connected - in other words, have so much stress around them. They are often not really trained to sit in nature, to meditate or to "let go" with intention.

      

    All the daily stress can add up in students' mind & bodies, leading to a state of dis-ease. As more medical doctors are agreeing, stress is the number one leading cause of disease. So, Tapping helps to not just create Calmer Schools, but it also creates healthier individuals.  

     

    Tap whenever you notice an emotional charge. Frustrated (with stubborn teacher/student)? Upset(at your friend)? Sad (something happened)? Scared (close call) ? Hurt (meanie) ? Anxious (for test or performance)? Stress triggers are every where! And the beauty is..... you can also combat that by Tapping, anytime, anywhere!

    Where & How to Tap ?

    The Basic Tapping Points

    The effectiveness of stimulating Chinese acupuncture points that exist all over our body has been proven for many thousands of years. EFT uses some of the most powerful points. All we need is a few fingers to tap - no needles required!

     

    (0. Pinky-Side of the Hand, so called "Karate Chop Point")

     

    1. Top of the Head (Monkey Point)

    2. Beginning of the Eyebrow Points

    3. Side of the Eyes (Tear Point 1)

    4. Under the Eyes (Tear Point 2)

    5. Under the Nose Point (Nose Point)

    6. Under the Mouth/Above the Chin (Chinny Chin Chin Point)

    7. Collar Bone Point (Gorilla Thump Points)

    8. Under Arm Point (Tickle Points)

     

    Extra Power Points

    9. Wrist Points

    10. Squeeze the Side of Finger Nails

    11. Rib Cage Points

     

    We will tap on the following points with a few fingers, 4-10 times.

    What Else?

    Just Some Note of Caution

    When used in a professionally used, EFT Meridian Tapping has proven to be effective in dealing with PTSD, trauma and extreme anxiety including phobias as well. In the school setting, however, the goal is to induce a general sense of calm - not to dive deep into trauma history. However, it is important to understand this, due to the fact that tapping works with the nervous and memory storage system in a deep way.

    Certified EFT Practitioner

    Mitsuko knows how stress/anxiety can lead to lower quality of life, including chronic tension and physical pain. Painful, unprocessed memories and events experienced at young age can carry well into one's adult life. Motivated by the thought, "How much better would it be if kids learned to manage their emotions when they are younger, rather than having to carry around the burden all these years?" she finds joy in sharing EFT with youth and children in the community, and anyone who is open to learning how to tap.

She has used EFT with tween and teens to help create healthy responses to feelings of stress and panic related to school or social environments. Her experience with children has demonstrated that EFT is a safe, effective and easy way to regain emotional balance.
