Book Junkie: The Tapping Solution

One of the books I love to share with my clients is The Tapping Solution: A Revolutionary System for Stress-Free Living by Nick Ortner (released 2013 by Hay House).

How Tapping Started

Back in the late 1990’s, Gary Craig ‘discovered’ tapping and released an EFT Manual (EFT = Emotional Freedom Technique). Since then, EFT or tapping as it’s more commonly called is spreading like wild-fire. Nick Ortner was fascinated by tapping when he first discovered it and started carrying out his own research on the modality. He ended up creating a documentary of his findings and also wrote this book which I’m just in love with it!

What Is The Tapping Solution?

Tapping is based on the Chinese Acupuncture system. The theory is you tap on the end points of specific meridians (channels of energy that run around our body) and this action removes blocked energy found anywhere along that meridian. Blocked, stuck, stagnant energy is not good for us.

Blocked energy can cause a plethora of issues ranging from:

  • anxiety,
  • stress,
  • unable to make a decision,
  • serial procrastination,
  • fear,
  • phobias,
  • physical aches and pains,
  • illness in our body,
  • repetitive thoughts and beliefs
  • …pretty much anything that can go wrong with us, has part of its roots in an unbalanced energy system.

By tapping on specific points, you release the blocked energy which then releases what is causing you stress. You don’t even have to know why or how the energy got stuck.

The beauty of the tapping process is, it’s quick, easy to learn and can be done anywhere and anytime.

I know you’re all busting to try out this technique so I’ve included a ‘How to’ video below which features Nick Ortner’s sister, Jessica, below:

The Tapping Solution Book

The book has information on different scripts you can use covering topics such as Healing the Body, Releasing Physical Pain, Losing Weight, Making Money and Achieving your Dreams amongst others.

If you want to learn more about the scripts you can use, I highly recommend buying your own copy of the book.

The Tapping Solution Website

There’s also a lovely website (very user friendly and easy to navigate) at

If you’re interested in watching the documentary Nick Ortner created, you can find it on his website. It features well known authors such as Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) and Bruce Lipton (The Biology of Belief)

Annual Tapping World Summit

Finally, Nick has been running a free annual Tapping World Summit for the past few years. You can watch interviews and learn more about tapping over a 10 day period, all for free! Here’s the page where you can sign up to watch.

There’s an option to pre-purchase a copy of the whole summit, so you can refer back to the content over and over again:


Did you do the tapping homework I gave you in session? 😉 Or have you already tried tapping?
