Lifestyle: The Tapping Solution by Nick Ortner

The Tapping Solution - A Revolutionary System for Stress-free Living, by Nick Ortner/book.

I discovered tapping a couple of months ago, listening to one of Louise Hay's interviews where she mentioned the practice. Then, I searched for it on youtube and found a few interesting videos describing how to use tapping and actually started working on it myself. Nick's book came at the right time: to complement my beginner's curiosity and knowledge of this revolutionary system, as he describes it himself.

The book starts with a great story of how tapping was "discovered". I am a believer that our minds are powerful instruments, and if we believe in our energy centers and "tap" to make it come to life, we can actually cure or alleviate several symptoms or dis-eases.

Nick's book is divided into 14 chapters, and he describes in each one a specific use for tapping. You can use this formula to relieve anxiety, get rid of physical pain, eliminate fears and even create or improve relationships. Nick writes in an easy to follow language, accessible to everyone, and has several examples of real cases to illustrate each specific segment. Each chapter also ends with suggested exercises and practice.

It's also interesting to note that, on the aftermath of Connecticut's tragic school shooting last year, Nick created a fundraiser to bring tapping to the community, in order to help with mental and emotional support. What a great idea and goodwill. Kudos to Nick for spreading the word about tapping.
