Tapping For Health and Well being. Acupuncture without the needles.

Our aim was to make a website that people can use as a resource for doing emotional freedom therapy. Emotional freedom therapy is where you tap on different points on the body that relate to meridian lines to help relieve blockages which can cause many issues. When researching other EFT resources many people complained of too much reading and videos being long winded. Our aim was to provide a website with minimum excess information and videos that are short and easy to follow. We will also provide links to other websites if people want to look at further reading.

Project Description

Our website looks at tapping for health and wellbeing. As there are so many areas we choose to focus on six specific areas; Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Weight loss, Smoking and Physical pain. The website has videos, showing the tapping routines, interactive stress scale and written routines that can be followed. For each of the six areas we have looked at, there is information on using a mantra with your tapping, easy to follow videos and also the routine written down to follow. Our interactive stress scale asks you to rate your mood from 1 to 10, 1 being bad, 10 being good, depending on the selection the scale will give you a task to complete to help bring up your mood. These tasks can include breathing techniques and tapping routines. The website also has links to other websites on EFT for access to further reading and resources on the topic. When researching Emotional freedom therapy we created a survey to ask people about their experiences and knowledge of the topic and what they would like to see on a website for EFT. The majority of people who took our survey had heard of EFT but they had never tried it. Many expressed that resources already available on the topic had too much reading involved and videos that were very long and annoying and difficult to follow. After looking at other sites available we decide to make our website more easily accessible. We have used very little writing, only saying what is necessary and our videos show the tapping routines, but are short, easy to follow and don’t have any extra unnecessary talking. We also choose to put in an interactive element in the form of a stress scale, which depending on your choice from one to ten gives you a task to do. We felt this to be a nice element to add and it is, like the rest of the website, simple and easy to follow.
