Interviewing Hannah Kahn
Thank you for taking the time to talk with me about EFT Tapping Hannah! First, tell me about yourself and what you do, and how you first came about EFT Tapping!
Thank you so much for this opportunity to share! My name is Hannah and I’m a wellness coach and EFT practitioner. I came across EFT tapping years ago while in therapy. I found it to be helpful, but didn’t know how it worked. Now that I’m older and work at an acupuncture clinic, I’ve learned more about how energy functions in the body and have found Tapping to be an incredible addition to my healing practice.
Tell me more about EFT Tapping. Where did it originate from and what is it used for?
EFT Tapping is a psychological acupressure technique used to release stored emotions & put the body back into a relaxation state. It was developed in the 1990s by a man named Gary Craig, a Stanford engineer. It is based on something called Thought Field Therapy, which was founded by Roger Callahan, and is considered to be a category of Energy Psychology.
How does EFT Tapping benefit our mental health?
EFT Tapping benefits our mental and emotional health by releasing stored emotions in the body. Oftentimes, we maintain limiting beliefs and low-frequency emotions due to past trauma or negative experiences. Through EFT, we can shift the stagnant energy by tapping on meridian points, which is a concept that originates from Chinese medicine. Improving the flow of energy stimulates the central nervous system and releases chemicals that make us feel good. Tapping has been shown to lower heart rates, blood pressure, and reduce levels of cortisol, which is known as the stress hormone. Tapping has been proven to reduce PTSD in active military and veterans if that tells you anything as to how powerful it is.
Who would you recommend to do EFT tapping?
Individuals who have experienced trauma, anxiety, and depression generally benefit the most from EFT, but it can help everyone! Tapping brings us back to a relaxation state, which cannot exist at the same time as a stress response. This, of course, improves physical, mental, and emotional health.
Do you have any resources regarding EFT Tapping?
Currently, my favorite EFT sources are www.thetappingsolution.com and www.emofree.com. I also love watching EFT videos by Gabby Bernstein. Tapping along with her and her clients always improves my emotional well-being, which is due to something called Borrowing Benefits. This is a phenomenon discovered only in EFT, where tapping along with someone else’s issues can benefit you as well.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Reach out to me and I’d be more than happy to meet you and set up a one-on-one session! I also host group circles, which are wonderful and provide a sense of community while healing and Borrowing Benefits from others.
