Has anyone had luck with tapping?

I just heard about this today and wondered if anyone has had success.

    Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique actually worsened a migraine I was having. It occurred when tapping my upper center chest on the breastbone. That region of the chest is loaded with nerves and I think its was too much stimulation for my migraine brain.

    Hi Joleen1996! Thank you so much for your question. I have used tapping, or EFT, to help manage my depression and anxiety and found it to also help to lower my migraine pain. Through tapping, you let go of any negative thoughts, feelings, or perceptions as well as any emotional pain. Through this process of letting go, if I happened to be in the midst of a migraine attack, my pain would decrease. It’s not a permanent fix nor a cure but it is a very helpful form of self-care, much like meditation and deep-breathing are.

    I hope this sufficiently answers your question. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any more questions. Thanks for being a member of the Migraine.com community!
