About The Tapping Tool


What if relief for stress, anxiety, and trauma was at your fingertips all along?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), commonly called Tapping, is an evidence-based mind-body tool you can use to self-regulate by tapping on specific points on your body. Studies have found Tapping can reduce stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions.


Tijana Coso discovered Tapping in the throes of severe depression. Skeptical but desperate for relief, she studied the history, science, and variations of EFT and began practicing it herself. Tapping worked—but learning how to do it and how it worked was daunting. This book simplifies that process.

The Tapping Tool offers both theory and practical guidance for EFT in simple language for immediate application. Coso takes the confusion out of Tapping so that you can start using it to reduce stress and anxiety before you’ve even finished the book.

"The Tapping Tool offers a very concrete and practical way to reduce stress, worry and anxiety, with a science backed, proven technique. Not only will you learn how to reduce stress, but the easy to follow processes offered by Tijana means everyone can benefit from this book - young and old. I truly recommend reading and applying The Tapping Tool!"

~ Dr Peta Stapleton, Associate Professor, Bond University and author of The Science Behind Tapping (Hay House)
