How to tap
Use two or three fingers of one hand to tap on the different tapping points. In the case of the Tender Spot rub it rather than tap. Tap/rub hard enough to feel it, and not so hard that you hurt yourself!
EFT is a very forgiving system – you can tap on the left or right side of your body and there is no way you can get it wrong!
Just tap in the area of the points as indicated (it does not have to be 100% on the spot).
The Tender Spot
There are two Tender Spots and it doesn’t matter which one you use. As in the diagram above, they are located in the upper left and right portions of the chest and here’s how to find them:
Go to the base of the throat about where you would knot a tie. Find the U shaped notch at the top of your sternum (breastbone) and from the top of that notch go down 3 inches toward your navel and over 3 inches to your left or right. You should now be in the upper left or right portion of your chest. If you press vigorously in that area (within a 2 inch radius) you will find the “Tender Spot.” This spot is sore when you rub it vigorously because lymphatic congestion occurs there and when you rub it, you are dispersing that congestion. If you rub this point regularly the congestion will disperse and the soreness goes away.
You should not feel intense pain by rubbing this Sore Spot; it should be bearable and not cause any undue discomfort. If it does or there are any medical reasons why you shouldn’t be probing in that area then switch to the other side or use the “Karate Chop” point instead.
The Karate Chop Point
The Karate Chop point is located at the center of the fleshy part of the outside of either hand between the top of the wrist and the base of the baby finger – the the part of your hand you would use to deliver a karate chop.
Vigorously tap the Karate Chop point with the fingertips of the index finger and middle finger of the other hand. While you could use the Karate Chop point of either hand, it is usually most convenient to tap the Karate Chop point of the non-dominant hand with the two fingertips of the dominant hand. If you are right handed, for example, you would tap the Karate Chop point on the left hand with the fingertips of the right hand.
Should I Use The Tender Spot Or The Karate Chop Point?
Should you use the Tender Spot or the Karate Chop point? Rubbing the Tender Spot seems more effective than tapping the Karate Chop point by a small margin so use it whenever you can.
The Remaining Tapping Points
The other points are indicated on the diagram above.
