Karate-Chop Point (KC) = The outer edge of your palm, on the opposite side from your thumb.

Eyebrow (EB) = The inner edges of the eyebrows, closest to the bridge of the nose. Use two fingers.

Side of eye (SE) = The hard ridge between the corner of your eye and your temple. Use two fingers. Feel out this area gently so you don't poke yourself in the eye!

Under eye (UE) = The hard bone under the eye that merges with the cheekbone. Use two fingers, and stay in line with your pupil.

Under nose (UN) = The point centered between the bottom of the nose and the upper lip. Use two fingers.

Chin (CH) = This point is in line with the previous one, and is centered between the bottom of the lower lip and the chin.

Collarbone (CB) = Tap just below the hard ridge of your collarbone with four fingers.

Underarm (UA) = On your side, just about four inches beneath the armpit. Use four fingers.

Top of Head (TH) = On the crown of your head. Use four fingers

EFT Basic Tapping Sequence:

  • Identify your issue, emotion, pain, memory, belief, etc. (or an aspect of that issue)
  • Rate the intensity of the issue from 0 to 10
  • Create the Set Up Statement: Even though I have 'the problem', I now choose to deeply and completely love and accept myself. (see below for me on Set Up Statements)
  • Tap on the Karate Chop point while stating the Set Up Statement 3 times.
  • Starting on the Eye Brow point, tap on each of the points 5 - 7 times while saying a reminder phrase once on each point. 
  • After 3 or 4 rounds on all of the points take a deep breath and check back in and re-rate the intensity of the issue.
  • If the intensity has gone down by 2 or more but is not at a zero, continue tapping on the points being a specific as possible with your reminder phrase.
  • If the intensity has not gone down by at least 2, start​ with the Set Up Phrase again changing the words to be more specific and speak with more enthusiasm.  If the intensity still does not start to come down, click here to get a list of possible reasons why it is not coming down.
  • Once the intensity reaches a 1 or 2 you can start to change your reminder phrase to include words like release, letting go, or you can add in a new choice or possibility.
  • It is nice to end with a round of tapping on your goals or desired outcome for the situation.
