Progressive Relaxation Tapping

A nice way to relax...

If you (or your client) ever feel overwhelmed by tapping, here is a nice way to calm down. You can also use it for those times when you just want to unwind and want something different. It is somewhere between tapping and a quick hypnotic meditation.

There are no words to say, and you only tap on one point. I recommend the Collarbone because it is really easy to use comfortable as you relax.

Tap on your Collarbone using both hands (both sides) as you lie or sit back. Carry on tapping on your collarbone as you do the following:

You may wish to start by wiggling your toes... And then let them go... Then flex your feet, and be aware of the tension melting away as you relax them, one by one. As you relax your feet, let your ankles feel looser, more relaxed. Or maybe you become aware of the tension gently leaving your shins at the front of your legs... Allow the tension to melt away from your calves... Gently and safely... Allow the muscles in your thighs to relax... And you may notice your knees becoming a little more comfortable... As you allow all the muscles in your legs to let go of tension... Allowing relaxation... Muscle by muscle... All the way up through your spine... And we can hold so much tension around our spine... Imagine this tension gently melting out of your back... As all the muscles in your back relax... One by one... Either side of the spine... All the way to your shoulders... Letting go of some of that tension in your shoulders... Allowing your shoulders to drop... And relax... Allowing your arms to relax... All the way down to he fingertips... And gently letting your shoulders drop again... Releasing tension... Allowing relaxation... Letting go of the tension on the right side of your neck... Muscle by muscle... Releasing the tension on the left side of your neck... You may wish to relax your neck further and allow the relaxation to gently continue through every muscle in your face... And all the way through the back of your head... Then around your ears... Releasing tension... And when you are ready... Take a deep breath in... And let it go... And... Just have a stretch, have a drink of water, and enjoy the calm serenity.

Author's Bio:

© Suzanne Zacharia 2010.  My name is Suzanne Zacharia and I am committed to spreading the word about health options. I believe that the more and better options one has, the more choice there is. 

A virus caught along with 5 other students at university at the end of 1986, plus medical negligence, meant that I got smokers lung at a relatively young age.  In desperation for help with my symptoms and quality of life, I turned to complementary therapy, and I have outlived one doctor's prognosis by many years now.

I am now a complementary therapist, author and trainer specializing in energy healing.  Want to use this article?  You can, as long as you credit me with it and invite your readers to get my FREE book "EFT How-To For You" at http://www.EFT-Scripts.com
