If you answered YES to any of the above, join St. Louis Wellness Center provider Alison Morris to address all the fears, stresses, worries, and more swirling around the coronavirus and how it’s affecting our lives using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping).
We’ll meet ONLINE, so you can tap along from the comfort of your own home. You do not need any prior tapping experience – you’ll learn by following along and you’ll be able to tap on your own by the end of class!
Studies have shown that tapping can reduce the stress hormone cortisol by as much as 37% and can increase immune function by as much as 113% (via epigenetic changes in gene expression)! Tapping also sends calming signals to your brain, and allows your nervous system to relax.
When we’re stressed, our body diverts resources away from repair, healing, and regeneration. One of the systems that gets “robbed” of energy is the immune system. So let’s acknowledge the stress we ARE feeling and tap it away so our bodies have what they need to keep us healthy and strong.
Tapping is a kind of emotional acupressure, where you use your fingertips to tap on specific acupressure points on your face, head, and upper body while connecting with an emotion, sensation, or belief. It’s gentle, it’s effective, and it’s safe. (And once you learn it, you can teach your kids how to tap, too!)
In short, tapping was made for times like these!
