Tapping For Weight Loss + Body Confidence

Consider standing nude if it feels safe and comfortable or fully clothed in front of a full length mirror. What are you feelings? What do you notice? What are the pictures and stories in your mind saying? Rate the intensity of your strongest emotion about your body on a scale of (lowest) 1-10 (highest).

Take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale through you mouth. 

Begin tapping the Karate Chop point which is the area below your pinky at the edge of your hand. You can tap with either hand and on either side of your body, whichever feels most comfortable and natural for you. You don’t need to tap fast or hard.

Stop tapping and rate how you feel about the person in the mirror. Compare your number to the beginning of the session. Repeat or keep tapping.  Be gentle with yourself. Repeat this practice as often as you’d like. Tapping is always available to you.
