1. Tune the Thought Field -- that is, intentionally think about the traumatic event that produces such emotional distress in your life. 
2. Rate you distress level at this moment, using the Subjective Units of Distress (SUD) scale. On this scale, 10 is the worst you could possibly feel, and 1 indicates absolutely no trace of upset. Write down the SUD rating before you continue to the next step.
3. Tap the "collarbone point." To locate it, take two fingers of either hand and run them down the center of the throat to the top of the center collarbone notch. This is approximately even with the spot where a man would knot his tie. From there, move straight down an additional inch. Then move to the right one inch. Tap this point five times. 
4. Tap five times under the eye, about an inch below the bottom of the center of the bony orbit, high on the cheek. Tap firmly, but not hard enough to cause pain.

5. Tap solidly five times under the arm, about four inches directly below the armpit, using rigid fingers. In men, this spot is under the arm about even with the nipple. Women can locate this spot by tapping at about the center of the bra under the arm.
 6. Take a second SUD rating and write it down. If the SUD has decreased 2 or more points (which will be the case for most people), then continue with step 7 below. If there was no change, however, or if the change in the SUD was only 1 point, perform the correction for a psychological reversal, using the technique described in this post (CLICK HERE). Then repeat steps 1 through 6.
7. Perform the nine-gamut treatments. Locate the gamut spot on the back of the hand, about an inch below the raised knuckles of the ring finger and little finger when making a fist. begin tapping the gamut spot with two fingers of the opposite hand, about three to five times per second, and continue tapping while performing all nine steps below ( tap five or six times for each of the nine-gamut positions). It is very important to tap the gamut spot throughout all nine of these gamut treatments:
G1~ Open the eyes.

G2~ Close the eyes.

G3~ Open the eyes and point eyeball down and to the left.

G4~ Point the eyeballs down and to the right.

G5~ Whirl the eyeballs around in a circle in one direction (clockwise).

G6~ Whirl the eyeballs around in the opposite direction (counter clockwise).

G7~ Hum a few bars of any tune aloud (more than a single note;
rest the eyes).

G8~ Count aloud from one to five.

G9~ Hum the tune again.
8. Tap the collarbone point five times again.

9. Tap five times under the eye again.. 
10. Tap five times under the arm again.
11. Take still another SUD rating and write it down. If it has declined to 1 (which will happen with most people), move to step 12 below. But if it has decreased significantly yet is still not a 1, perform the MINI PR correction as described below, and then repeat the treatment steps above.
12. To ensure that the improvements you've made are complete, perform the floor-to-ceiling eye roll (when the SUD is 2 or lower): Hold the head level and move your eyes down. Then begin tapping the gamut point as you move your eyes upward.

 A related procedure, called a mini psychological reversal correction, can be used when you decrease your SUD to a 3 or 4 but can't seem to get it any lower.  In other words, you've achieved substantial improvement, but you can't get to the finish line.  A block exists that is keeping you from reducing the SUD any further

In the algorithm for your particular emotional problem, you'll be instructed on whether and when to use this technique. here is the  procedure to follow:

~ Find the PR spot mentioned above,  located on the outside edge of the  hand, between the wrist and the  base of the little finger.

~ Tap about fifteen (15) times with two fingers of the opposite hand.

As long as a psychological reversal persists, TFT ( or any other treatment) won't be able to get the SUD to a 1.  The PR or mini PR correction will open the door that allows TFT to eradicate your problem.

If you have anxiety in your life, at least you're not alone. Some survey have found that anxiety is the most common psychological disorder in the country. it is so prevalent that many people accept anxiety as an unwelcome fact of life. While it's true that anxiety often has no obvious trigger, it can also be attributed to factors such as the loss of a job or the illness of a family member. Even in cases like this, however, the anxiety is frequently out of proportion to the apparent cause; for example, a deadline at work may send your anxiety soaring far above what is warranted by the circumstances.

  Remember, however, that no matter what you attribute your anxiety to, the key is collapsing the perturbations in the Thought Field that are responsible for it. Once those perturbations are eradicated, the anxiety will vanish as well.

  Sometimes anxiety is accompanied by panic attacks. Panic is a sudden, intense onset of severe anxiety. For people who have never had a severe panic reaction, it is hard to imagine how disruptive and terrifying these episodes can be. Once they occur, they can dramatically affect how people live there lives, often leaving them fearful of having another panicky response, which makes them chronically anxious. they may consciously stay only in familiar and secure environments where such attacks are less likely to occur. In the most extreme cases, people become permanently homebound.

  I recall a young mother who could not get more than six feet from her front door without having a severe panic attack. As  a result, she was terrified about what might happen if her three-year-old son had a medical emergency that required an urgent trip to the hospital; she simply didn't think she'd be able to take him. Within a few minutes, after using the TFT algorithm, it was clear to her that she would be able to handle such an emergency.

  The algorithm for "simple / stress" will work for most people. If it doesn't get your SUD as low as you'd like, however, then use the algorithm for "complex anxiety/panic attack."  Begin with the "first use" algorithm for complex anxiety, and then, if necessary, move on to one of the alternative algorithms.
