The independent documentary The Tapping Solution (formerly known as Try It On Everything), produced by Nick Ortner, and its companion books, The Tapping Solution and The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence, written and produced by Nick Ortner and Jessica Ortner, demonstrate how you can powerfully and permanently train yourself to chase away anxiety, insecurity, sorrow, and even lessen the feeling of physical pain in just a few easy steps… plus lead a fruitful and successful life!
The Tapping Solution tells the powerful story of Rene. "Oh, My God!!!" he screamed as he recalled the horrific event that changed his life forever.
The visuals played over and over in his mind, thousands of times a day. Total paralysis gripped his life.
No one could blame him for the intensity of his emotions: less than a year ago his life was shattered when his car was hit by a truck merging onto the highway, and his beloved wife and soulmate Raquel was killed instantly.
She had just announced that they were expecting their first child together…
Her two children from a previous marriage, who had been living with them, were sent back to their biological father in Puerto Rico. His lively home was suddenly empty and silent – except for those screaming voices inside Rene's head. His remorse at not having been able to avoid the accident was unbearable…
How could he ever go on again? Was he even willing to try?
As recounted in The Tapping Solution, just 10 weeks after the accident, Rene saw a sign announcing a workshop designed to help resolve precisely these kinds of emotional issues. He applied, and was immediately accepted.
The film further documents how he was able to regain his ability to sleep, reduce the intensity and intrusiveness of the crash memories, and even begin to plan his life – including starting a new business venture and buying a house in Puerto Rico. He reports that he's now working out again and has lost 15 lbs.!
What did he discover at the workshop that helped him so much?
Meridian Tapping, which is described as a remarkable yet incredibly simple energy psychology technique that has already helped millions of people all around the world.
You, too, can discover this fascinating method, as well as more details about Rene's transformation, in the documentary The Tapping Solution and its accompanying book The Tapping Solution.

Jessica Ortner, the author of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence, states that the Meridian Tapping techniques presented are a "genuinely effective way of changing human emotions and behaviors for the better."
Certainly, the many devoted followers of The Tapping Solution would agree. Consider Jessica’s story….
Stressed and Beating Herself up for Gaining Weight
For many years, she was sure that losing weight would be the answer to all her problems.
Jessica thought that if she could just fit into that dress or those jeans, she'd be happy -- that if she finally lost the weight her career would take off, and she'd finally find the relationship I wanted. But only after she'd lost the weight.
Until then, Jessica would continue to panic every time someone took her picture, strategically placing her hands over the parts she hated. Or making sure the photo was cropped so only her face showed if she couldn’t cover the questionable body parts.
Meanwhile, she'd cancel plans. She'd shrink emotionally so people wouldn't notice how big she felt physically. She'd continue to buy books on weight loss, exercise equipment, and diet food. One day she'd be happy, but not today. Not until she lost the weight.
During her many years of yo-yo dieting and unsuccessful attempts to keep the weight off, Jessica felt broken. Like so many women who feel ashamed of their bodies and their weight, she was a closet emotional eater. Jessica recalled that her relationship with food was a constant struggle.
For years, she went from one program to another, starving herself and working out at the gym, only to eventually succumb to food and destroy any progress she had made.
“Our emotions are what keep us going back to the foods we shouldn't eat; they're what cause us to sabotage our exercise programs, they're what release hormones in our body that lead to weight gain...they are the control mechanism for our entire weight loss success or failure,” Ortner claims.
The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence is a fast and effective approach to targeting and then eliminating the true underlying causes or negative emotions of any challenges you may be facing in your life that are affecting your ability to lose weight, and all with the use of "tapping.”
Now, a bit about the legitimacy of Meridian Tapping…
Does the Video Discuss any Evidence of Helping?
According to Nick Ortner's film and book, if you've read anything about acupuncture, you probably know it's based on the concept of a flow of special vital energy throughout your body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, this energy flows through your body along certain invisible pathways called meridians.
The theory behind acupuncture, he states, is that the root of all pain and illness is a disruption in your body's energy system.
The ancient idea of your body as a system of energy pathways is not inconsistent with modern views.
Why do we hook patients up to electric sensors to monitor "life-force"? Why is a flat line on a heart monitor (meaning no electrical activity) such a disturbing image to witness in a hospital? And why do we jump-start the hearts of fellow human beings with scary-looking electric paddles?
Your body – and life itself – can be easily viewed as an elaborate energy system. Every organ and body system seems to have its corresponding energy field and pathways.
Energy Sciences and Energy Psychology
The Tapping Solution details how we're now seeing the development of new "energy sciences" and how one of their apparent discoveries is that the expression of genes is as crucial as their mere existence. According to the experts, that expression is controlled to a large degree by the energetic choices we make – thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and decisions…
The relatively new field of Energy Psychology likewise recognizes that we are, first and foremost, energetic beings. It regards energy centers, energy pathways, and bio-fields as vital players in human psychology… and attempts to address stubborn psychological issues by dealing with the bio-energy that's causing the felt emotional state.
The book explains the belief that if energy can be re-routed, dispersed, or reshaped, your emotional state will change.
Traditional psychotherapy can be helpful in tracing the origins of energy disruptions. But it's the disruption of the energy field itself that's responsible for negative emotions. Energy psychologists now attempt to treat energy patterns directly.
When it's accomplished successfully, phobias and self-destructive thinking patterns can permanently disappear after only one, or at most a few short treatment sessions.
"Stunning! This eye-opening film reveals how ANYONE can heal virtually anything with ‘tapping.’ I've used it for years and highly recommend it."
- JOE VITALE, best-selling author, "The Attractor Factor"
Just What Exactly is this Meridian Tapping Technique Discussed in the Video
Meridian Tapping is a self-administered technique that can be practiced either alone or under the supervision of a trained therapist, to relieve negative emotional patterns.
Its underlying premise, the film explains, is that all negative emotions are a result of a disruption in your body's energy system.
The film suggests that Meridian Tapping is deceptively simple. "It is just like acupuncture – only without the needles."
It involves nothing more complicated than repeating custom-made verbal affirmations and tapping repeatedly on specific key locations on your body. On the surface, that's all there is to it.
The books discuss real-life situations experienced by the Nick and Jessica Ortner. They dive into specific reasons why Meridian Tapping is useful and how to successful apply tapping to target specific fears or emotional obstacles. In many cases, if a person is focusing on a specific fear at the time they tap, that fear can be removed, sometimes permanently.
According to The Tapping Solution, Meridian Tapping is now the most influential and widely known Energy Psychology method in the world.
But Does it Really Work?
As Jack Canfield, the renowned co-author of the Chicken Soup For The Soul series, explains, "The proof is in the pudding." And that's what the film so successfully documents: 10 people working on their issues, using nothing but the practice of Meridian Tapping, and obtaining amazing results.
Six months later, when they are brought together for a reunion, they maintain most, if not all, of the results they obtained at the workshop.
One such study, the well-known Wells Study, was reported in the Journal of Clinical Psychology in 2003. Psychologist Steve Wells and his team of researchers tested Meridian Tapping against a deep-breathing technique, as a treatment for fears and phobias of small creatures like rats and cockroaches.
According to the book, they hoped to discover two things…
- Whether MTT could deliver immediate benefits to participants
- Whether benefits gained through MTT held up over time
The results were surprising. Tapping proved far more effective than the comparison technique in four of five measures. Only pulse rate showed no statistical difference.
Most significantly, when subjects were re-tested six to nine months later, the gains achieved through Tapping had held up much more strongly than those achieved by the comparison method.
And this was after only one single 30-minute Meridian Tapping session with no intervening treatments.
Additionally, spurred by the Wells study, a team of scientists led by Dr. Harvey Baker of New York (called the Baker-Siegel study) decided to try to replicate the Wells study, with a few new twists. Their comparison method was called the Supportive Interview, and utilized methods in traditional psychotherapy.
They also had a third "control" group who were present in the lab but didn't receive any treatment. The study period went to 1.38 years.
The results suggested, although the initial benefits of tapping shrank over time, they did not disappear by the time of re-testing more than a year later. This was with no further treatment during the interim, similar to the Wells study.
"I had a serious knee injury and tapped along as you suggested and the pain is just gone. My knee is perfect. Now, I know that tapping works, but it still amazes me how spectacular it works.."
- Madalyn M. Richardson
Why Nothing Works All the Time
The film and book point out that there's nothing that works 100% of the time. Pschotherapy doesn't… medication doesn't… breathing techniques don't.
In fact, during the four-day workshop recorded in The Tapping Solution, a few people who didn't seem to be helped by tapping. The film explains that several of the attendees had "one minute miracles", almost all improved substantially over a longer period of time, while a couple of attendees saw little difference.
The authors suggest two possible factors…
From this perspective, some people may have a hidden agenda for maintaining their life the way it is, and therefore resist changing. There are people who don't want to face the changes that getting rid of a phobia would require of them.
The books also explain that fears often control numerous aspects… meaning that multiple memories, emotions, and psychological considerations are driving the fear, each of which must be addressed individually.
One example given, is fear of flying, which often presents these common aspects…
- Fear of being in an enclosed cabin
- Fear of not being in control during the flight
- Fear of the plane crashing
- Fear of heights
- Fear of being hijacked, etc.
Even with the issue of multiple aspects, those who are eager to chase away the “gremlins” that hinder them from living life to the fullest should find that Meridian Tapping is worth a try. And it can be used for so many areas of life…
"The clips from interviews with a great range of experts are very helpful, worth watching again and again for the insights they bring. Thank you so much for the care and love you have put into the making of this great little DVD. It¹s a gem."
-Lynsey Ferrari, New Zealand
The Many Sides of Meridian Tapping Success
The movie and the book advocate using Meridian Tapping for every area of your life.
Which of these areas would you like to improve?
In the book, Nick and Jessica Ortner encourage the reader to try tapping for any and all of these things…
- Fears and phobias – dental visits, surgery, elevators, needles, flying, public speaking, death, physical pain, enclosed spaces, creatures like snakes, mice, and spiders… and many other objects or situations
- Performance Enhancement – musical performance, athletic performance, public speaking, dance, academic skills, exam taking, job interviews, sales, writer's block, business success…
- Weight Loss – dealing with the underlying emotions that affect eating, including sadness, loneliness, depression, boredom, guilt, frustration, and discouragement
The book states that toothache relief is one of the most frequent benefits reported from Meridian Tapping. It also reports some relief from back pain/injury, burns, insect stings, muscle cramps, accident injuries, arthritis, infections, sore throat, and many other infirmities. Positively, the book purports to help:
- Creating Desirable Habits – The film and book are intended to help you rid yourself of behaviors that are not serving you well, and replacing undesirable habits with self-enhancing ones.
- Using tapping directly on emotional states that you want to change – These may include anger, hatred, and depression…
- Helping relax you for sleep issues – Meridian Tapping can help you feel "pleasantly drowsy" when it's time to sleep
- Addictions – Due to their usual complexity of underlying causes, these conditions require persistence. For major addictions, the author suggests working with an experienced tapping practitioner
- Allergies – Hay fever, rashes, insect stings, anaphylactic shock, food or milk allergies, and more. The book emphasizes that caution should be employed here – some allergic reactions can be life threatening. The author does not suggest you quit your doctor's advice that may put your life at risk
One related caveat… The producers of the movie and the author of the book expressly state that Meridian Tapping is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or psychological disorder. They insist tapping is not a substitute for medical or psychological treatment.
Clarifying further, the authors state that reading the book and using Meridian Tapping on yourself should not replace your health care from medical/psychological professionals. Information contained in the book and film are not to be considered a recommendation to stop seeing any of your healthcare professionals, or to stop prescribed medication without consulting your healthcare professional.
