Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT) - Basic instructions / Recipe

MTT - Basic Recipe

(1) Identify the issue - make a mental note of just ONE problem that is bothering you. 

(2) Establish initial level of intensity of your problem.   Assign a number on a 0-10 scale to indicate the Intensity level of your problem relative to how it has been before E.g. 10 is the worst your problem has ever been. 

For emotional issues - recreate the memories in your mind and assess their discomforts.

For physical ailments - assess the existing pain or discomfort.

For performance issues - attempt the desired performance level and measure how close you come to it.

A Round includes:

  (3) Setup  -  (4) Sequence Tapping  -  (5) Reassess Intensity

(3)   The Setup

Repeat this Affirmation Phrase 3 times to (1) "Tune in" to your problem   (2) Create self-acceptance:

"Even though I have this (briefly describe problem), I deeply and completely accept myself"

while continuously tapping the Karate Chop Point (KC)    (see  Karate Chop Point);

On subsequent rounds: you can use just the key words of the problem for a shortened version - called a "Reminder Phrase".

For best results, MTT needs to be applied to specific events or problems that underlie your problem    

(E.g. for a headache, which was brought on by an argument, you could say "Even though I argued with___, . . . "

Reduce a general problem to a small number of specific problems or events in your life - after cutting down 5-10 "trees", the "forest" has thinned out enough to enable you to "walk" out.  i.e. the MTT process seems to have a generalization effect that takes care of all the related problems.

(4)   Sequence Tapping - Remove blocked energy pathways in the body- bytapping on one end point of each of the body’s major energy pathways, while "tuning in"to your problem.

•  Tap solidly but not enough to hurt;

•  Tap points in order given -easier to remember;

•  It doesn't matter which side you use - or if you switch hands during tapping

•   Maximize results, by using both hands at once, but alternate the tapping - so you are not tapping both hands in sync.

Tap the FINGERTIPS of all your fingers about 5-7 times (no need to count) on each of the following energy points:

TOH,   EB,  SE,  UE,  UN,  Ch,  CB,  UA, WR   (see Sequence Tapping Points )

While repeating the Affirmation Phrase (or a shorter, reminder version of it) at each point.

•  Keep fingers gently relaxed and forming a slightly curved natural line.

•  Ideally use fingertips not pads - since they contain more meridian points; obviously use pads with long fingernails;

•  Don't worry about being precise - as tapping the general area will suffice;

•  Number of taps is not critical - but should last about one complete breath; 

(5)   Reassess Intensity of problem to determine success of previous round - on a score of 1-10

If necessary, do the Round Again:

(3) Setup - (4) Sequence Tapping - (5)  Reassess Intensity

The Sequence Tapping Points

 (Tap each point about 5-7 times (no need to count), while repeating affirmation phrase)


Top of Head

With fingers back-to-back down the center of the skull.



At the beginning of the eyebrow, just above and to one side of the nose.


Side of Eye.
