If you’re keeping up with the holistic healing world, you might have heard of “tapping” — a set of energy psychology based methods for addressing emotional suffering. For decades now, mental health professionals have been incorporating these energy psychology methods to help ease suffering for patients with anxiety, depression, pain and even major trauma.

There are over 200 studies in energy psychology, and over 60 randomized controlled trials on techniques including Tapas Acupressure Technique, Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, and more.

Can tapping really help resolve trauma? How does it work, and how might it be helpful for us as we move through our day-to-day lives? Can it help foster resilience?

In this excerpt of a video interview with CHI Founder and CEO Dr. Shamini Jain, Dr. Dawson Church, acclaimed author, researcher, and leader in energy psychology, shares how his experience with tapping and other healing approaches, paradoxically, brought him to a state of bliss — even though he was moving through some of the most difficult times of his life.

This video was taken during the 2021 science of healing summit, sponsored by the Shift Network and CHI. Many thanks to the Shift Network for the use of this excerpt.

Is there actually evidence behind tapping for trauma and other ailments? The short answer is yes. Dig into the data with this review of the evidence, in this peer-reviewed, published scientific paper.
