Towards the launch of our last tapping for weight program, I wrote to you about my journey from into the world of tapping.*
It started with reading the AMAZING results of Dr Peta Stapleton’s clinical trial on tapping for weight management, which showed:
- Desires for high calorie foods decreased – in fact, a year after the study, many participants had forgotten their problem foods.
- Power over food choices increased – people’s willpower improved (even though most of them didn’t continue tapping after the program).
- Emotional wellbeing improved – tapping significantly reduced depression, anxiety, and stress.
- Weight decreased – the rate of weight loss actually increased over time (unlike other approaches where weight regains after treatment).
- Dieting decreased – this is important as dieting mindset leads to eating disorders and rebound weight gain – participants gained all of the above benefits and became less “diety”.
These sounded like benefits my clients would love, and I’m glad I explored this innovative therapy so I could share it with so many clients. In fact, after years of learning, developing our online tapping program, and now being involved in research in tapping, I think it’s fair to say I am now a card carrying convert! I’ve always felt psychology is the missing piece of the weight management puzzle, and now, I see tapping as a “missing piece within the missing piece”.
And, at the launch of our new and improved tapping program, it seems that the world is catching on too. There is a buzz around tapping for weight management. From the Australian Psychological Society learning tapping from Peta (and asking me to host the session), from TV to radio to news to celebrity endorsements – everyone seems to be talking about tapping!
Here’s one example, an interview with Peta on Channel 7:
As Peta said at her recent keynote, we are at a tipping point for tapping. Tapping is making it into the mainstream and the thing I love most is that the buzz is not coming from mass marketing or the diet industry, it’s coming from the growing body of research showing tapping works!
