What’s Tapping?
Stress is the body’s reaction to perception. Our bodies are energy and meridians are rivers of energy that flow through the body. When we think, the body feels, that's what the mind body connection is about. Meridian Tapping is a simple technique that uses your fingers to tap on specific meridian points to disrupt the connection between the mind and body. Tapping shifts the flow of energy, which in turn shifts how you feel and experience your thoughts. Shifting away from stress can free the energy to flow in a new direction.
Meridian Tapping can be used anywhere, anytime to provide in the moment relief and shifting of energy. It’s a living skill that can be used to decrease stress and worry and increase self worth and self-confidence. When we hold onto stress, the energy system of the body stays in a state of overwhelm, which tapping shifts to restore balance. Tapping can be used to address and resolve nearly every stress that life can throw at us.

TRE is a series of simple stretches that invites the body to naturally shake, whereby releasing body tension, restores balance to body systems and builds resiliency for life’s stresses.

TRE is not recommended for women who are pregnant.
