Trauma Tapping Technique is a technique to cope with trauma, anxiety and stress. It’s often called a “first aid” technique and is a great complement to other types of therapies. It’s a simple technique that is easy to use, easy to learn and easy to teach. It’s silent which means that there’s no need to verbally share difficult emotions with someone else.
Trauma Tapping Technique is developed by The Peaceful Heart Network, a non-profit organization founded by Gunilla Hamne and Ulf Sandström in 2010.
About the sessions
A session is usually done sitting, facing each other like two passing ships. Eyes can be open or closed depending on how you feel. I will then tap, using two fingers, on specific points on your body; on the hand, face, chest, under the arm and on the fingers. This is done two rounds while you’re thinking ever so lightly on the difficult emotion you’re feeling.
Before and after the session I might ask you to rate the level of distress you are feeling, and if any other thoughts or reflections comes up. You will never be asked to share any personal information about specific events or things that has happened.
The session takes about 15-30min, and is completely donation based.
