Thai Yoga Mastery, The Reformation, Bio-Tapp/ EFT and Thai Yoga Part 1


Thai Yoga Mastery, The Reformation, Bio-Tapp/E.F.T., and Thai Yoga Part 1

I was first introduced to the concept of “tapping” to balance energy in the meridians by the late Grand Master of Thai Medicine, Aachan Boontum Kitniwan, in 1988. In 1991, I was introduced to a Japanese variation by the master of Shiatsu, Sensei Toshiko Phipps. The initial techniques Toshi introduced to me were performed with a little wooden hammer and probe. We would do a pulse or Hara assessment to determine which meridians and corresponding points would need balancing and then apply the probe and tap it with the hammer. Toshi also told me that it was her understanding that the technique was originally part of Tibetan and Chinese acupuncture. My feeling and sense of what these various masters told me is that the use is quite ancient and was practiced in some form throughout Asia and Southeast Asia.

I have worked hard to develop integration strategies and a finer understanding of exactly how and why it works. I’m just that way! I have included first discussion and then a hard focus on technique and application in every Certified Thai Yoga Practitioner program I’ve conducted for over seven years. I saw the synergy once Gary Craig introduced me to his “E.F.T.” (Emotional Freedom Technique). I decided to commit to mastering this powerful tool and teaching it to every student and 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 repeatedly.

We call the specific integration of Tapping into SomaVeda BIO-TAPP or B.E.T. For more detailed and particular insight into the principles on which the Bio-Tapp is based, please order a copy of my book, “The SomaVeda Bio-Tapp/B.E.T. Manual.”

Think about how negative emotions impact your life. If for no other reason, consider the elegant and simple ideas to bring healing to this area of your life. Millions of people worldwide are enslaved to the Western psychological systems based on commerce and coercive therapies such as psychiatric drugs, E.C.T. (Electro-Convulsive Therapy), etc. Treatments have proven ineffective and, in many cases, more life-disturbing than the original disorders that qualified them in the first place. They are enslaved because they have been led to believe there are no reasonable alternatives. They are helpless despite their negative emotions, fears, phobias, compulsions, depression, anxieties, and neurosis. We empower ourselves and our clients by adding and incorporating effective, safe, and reliable methods for releasing and balancing our negative emotions.

SomaVeda Thai Yoga and Thai Massage holistic healing therapies have always brought light and life into every part of the person; these therapies are examples of what proper medicine is for mind, body, and spirit.
