Thai Yoga Mastery, The Reformation, Bio-Tapp/ EFT and Thai Yoga Part 1
I was first introduced to the concept of "tapping" to balance energy in the meridians by late Grand Master of Thai Medicine, Aachan Boontum Kitniwan in 1988. In 1991, I was introduced to a Japanese variation by master of Shiatsu, Toshiko Phipps. The initial techniques Toshi introduced to me were performed with a little wooden hammer and a wooden probe. We would do a pulse and or Hara assessment to determine which meridians and corresponding points would need balancing and then apply the probe and tapp it with the hammer. Toshi also related to me that it was her understanding that originally the technique was part of Tibetan and Chinese acupuncture. My feeling and understanding of what these various masters told me is that the use is quite ancient and was practiced in some form or another throughout Asia and Southeast Asia.
I have worked hard to develop integration strategies and a finer understanding of exactly how it works and why it works. I'm just that way! I have included first discussion and then a hard focus with technique and application in every Certified Thai Yoga Practitioner program I've conducted for over seven years. Once Gary Craig introduced me to his "EFT" (Emotional Freedom Technique), I saw the synergy and decided to commit to mastering this powerful tool and to teach it to every student and to every client. The main contribution I received from Gary Craig's research and practice ideas was the emphasis on balancing negative emotions. The more we work with it the more its power to support total healing has been proven time and again.
We call the specific integration of Tapping into SomaVeda BIO-TAPP or B.E.T. For more detailed and specific insight and the priciples on which the Bio-Tapp is based on please order a copy of my new book "The SomaVeda Bio-Tapp/ BET Manual".
Think about how your life is impacted by negative emotions. If for no other reason consider the elegant and simple ideas to bring healing to this area of your life. Millions of people around the world are enslaved to the western psychological systems based on commerce and coercive therapies such as psychiatric drugs, ECT (Electro-Convulsive Therapy) and the like. Therapies which have proven to be ineffective and in many cases more life disturbing than the original disorders which qualified them in the first place.. They are enslaved because they have been led to believe there are no reasonable alternatives and they are helpless in the face of their negative emotions, fears, phobia, compulsions, depressions, anxieties and neurosis. By adding and incorporating effective, safe and reliable methods for releasing and balancing our negative emotions we empower ourselves and our clients.
SomaVeda Thai Yoga and Thai Massage holistic healing therapies have always been about bringing light and life into every part of the person, these therapies are an example of what true medicine is for mind, body and spirit.
