This routine is designed to interfere with and replace energy-draining thought patterns and emotions. Some describe it as working by distraction - activating or sending signals to different parts of the brain by tapping on points of the body’s nervous system/energy pathways where they’re close to the surface. These points are known variously in Indian and Chinese medicine as chakras, acupuncture points, and acupressure points along the body's energy meridians. Regardless, many people report finding the routine helpful. Thanks to tapping.com.
