What does tapping your face do?
Since stress hormones break down collagen (responsible for skin’s texture and elasticity) a facial relaxation technique such as face tapping will prevent ageing and wrinkles. The skin’s cells need good circulation to heal, and tapping stimulates blood circulation, which is linked to collagen production.
How often should you tap EFT?
Lower intensity issues may only require four or five rounds to provide relief, while more intense issues may take 10 or 12 rounds. Intense or chronic issues are best addressed through consistent tapping over time. The benefits are cumulative, meaning you will get the best results by tapping everyday.
