Stress Tapping

The January 2012 Issue of Bottom Line Health reminds us of the importance of minimizing stress. They remind us of the negative effects stress and cortisol (the stress hormone) have on our hearts. And, they state that on-going, low-level stress, from work, relationships, finances and even chronic health problems can increase inflammation in our arteries, increasing our risk of heart disease.

The article tells us of new research in a study of nearly 1000 men, showed that those who experienced three or more major stressful life events in a single year, had a 50% higher risk of dying in a 30-year period.

All of the following physical and health related concerns are negatively effected by stress:

  • Increased blood sugar
  • Physical pain
  • Impaired memory
  • Weight gain
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Anxiety

Tapping is a simple and effective way to melt away stress on a daily basis. It even helps to normalize the cortisol levels in our body. You don’t need to let the effects of our fast-paced, stressful lives, chip away at your good health and well-being.

Rooney is a trauma nurse who experienced Hurricane Katrina firsthand. Following the disaster, Rooney met a psychologist from Los Angeles who taught her Thought Field Therapy, which is also referred to as Tapping Therapy.

“After the storm, people were so desperate that they would try anything,” Rooney said. “That’s the point where we got. We were so messed up, we were so hurt that we didn’t even care.”

Stress levels started at a level 8 and were reduced to .75 through using the tapping therapy, which Rooney now believes in and shares with others. The method is used throughout the United States in trauma centers and is also utilized by the military to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

“Now take that energy home to your families,” Rooney instructed the group.
