“The Tapping Toolbox is a user-friendly guide to tapping that includes a wealth of ready-to-use protocols for common issues such as trauma and PTSD, pain, depression, anxiety, and phobias. There are also plenty of personal examples and client stories to illustrate the power and use of the techniques. I love how Fred Gallo grounds the helping approach within a relationship of caring and respect and provides helpful guidelines for practitioners for getting and staying on track. As he says, the true power in these techniques isn’t from the tapping itself—it is from tapping into the client’s real power. I highly recommend this book to new and experienced tappers alike, including EFT, TFT, and other energy practitioners.”
