Phil Mollon – Basic Acupoint Tapping Demonstration

In this video, Phil Mollon demonstrates a ‘toolkit’ of well-known acupoint tapping protocols:

  • The 15 acupoints, their location, significance, which meridians / ’vessels’ they relate to and their emotional correlates, and how tapping on these points releases stress and brings about free association of the mind / body.
  • EFT including the 9 gamut method: Identifying an issue and releasing the feelings and bodily sensations through tapping on acupoints.
  • The ‘table top’ metaphor: This starts with a ‘global’ issue ( the ‘table top’) and then focuses on the underlying structure of the problem – (the ‘table legs’ ) finding the underpinning key feelings, thoughts and core beliefs about the self, and the relevant childhood experiences which link to the past and give rise to the problem.
  • The ‘tearless trauma’ technique (Gary Craig) tapping on the above ‘targets’ using ‘therapeutic dissociation’ – a valuable technique for enabling the clearing of intense trauma without re-traumatising – ‘a way of approaching hazardous clinical material safely and gently’.
