Tapping. Week 5 of the Challenge

Watch this week’s video above to learn my two favorite tips for speaking the language of your body (and to hear about my own recent crash landing back from vacation.) These are some of the most powerful techniques I’ll be sharing all summer. Try them out and leave a comment below to tell me how they go for you!

Warmly, Courtney

Getting Started with Tapping or Acupressure

This week instead of a guided meditation audio I’ve recorded a brief how-to video to share the 9 acupressure points and help you get started using this technique to manage your own stress, physical and emotional symptoms. If you are brand new to tapping you may also want to check out the second video where I show in detail how to find the acupressure points. You can also find my Written Guide here.

Try tapping at the beginning of a regular meditation practice or reach for it when your stress is high. This video includes a demo of tapping on a headache, but it is most powerful when you can specifically name your problem. Try it out– tap through the acupressure points giving voice to your concern as if you were talking or complaining to a friend. Then tap in some more positive approaches when you feel better.

And if you want to learn more about how I use essential oils for stress relief + to boost immunity you read more here and contact me with questions or to set up a conversation.

Also feel free to share experiences or questions with me as a comment to this post or via Facebook or Instagram. Who knows, what you share may just be what another needs to hear to truly lean into their practice.
