What is tapping, exactly?
Tapping is, literally, the practice of tapping particular points on your body with your fingertips while at the same time talking through something with key words that may be making your child feel nervous or anxious.
It is also known as EFT (emotional freedom technique) and is thought to help create a balance of energy within your body.
Tapping ‘tuns off’ the amygdala, the part of your brain that is responsible for negative emotions, and allows the brain to rewire itself into a calmer state. This gives us a more balanced emotional response to lots of different situations.
In my song ‘Every Little Cell’, we focus on positive health and sing a positive affirmation that our cells in our bodies are all “happy and well”. This is such a wonderful way to restore a sense of calm and balance to your body and mind in a world where there is a lot of fear about good health. With or without the actions this song is a positive way to keep your family happy and well.
EFT is a powerful tool and its benefits can be enjoyed by anyone.
So when you’re ready to give your mind and body a boost, join in with Every Little Cell and get tapping!
