What is Reboot Tapping?

I started out with traditional EFT, but kept on hearing that it was too complicated and took too long. After using traditional EFT for some time, I stumbled upon Robert Smith’s FasterEft. To say that I was intrigued is an understatement. Suddenly EFT made sense on a different level. So over time my colleague and I gradually introduced our own version of tapping based on As we did not take any of Robert’s courses we could not call it FasterEFT. With my interest in computers we ended up calling it “Reboot Tapping” because just as with a computer after an upgrade you are often called to reboot. Tapping is effecting a reboot to your operating system, your brain for the new version to run.

EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is emotion based, but I kept on getting lost in my head by trying to figure out what I had to say. FasterEFT did not care about what to say or why I had a problem, but wanted me to focus on how my problem made me feel. FasterEFT also uses fewer tapping points and does away with the Karate Chop setup all together. So Reboot Tapping became the protocol we use.

Reboot Tapping is a emotion based and memory centered tapping technique that is fast and simple. It is non-invasive and easy to learn, anyone can do it and it can be used for anything. The best part is that it is just as effective if it is done virtually by imagining tapping on the tapping points and saying the word in your head, rather than out loud and it doesn’t matter if you believe it will work or not. It just works.

The Reboot Tapping Protocol
