A lifestyle expert is holding a training workshop for an unusual technique used by Olympic athletes to ease pain and stress next week.
Ruth Fox, of Meersbrook, has been using the ‘tapping technique’ for a decade.
The tapping technique, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique, is often called ‘acupuncture without needles’ because it involves tapping significant points on the body’s meridian system.
Ruth said: “It was discovered just over 20 years ago that this simple tapping technique can actually clear emotional and physical discomforts.
“The basic principle is that when your attention is focussed on a discomfort and you tap the points, the discomfort significantly diminishes.”
In 2012, Olympic athlete Abi Oyepitan used the tapping technique to get rid of her shoulder pain.
n Ruth’s workshop is taking place at the Hilton, Sheffield Quays, on Saturday. Visit www.ruthfox.co.uk
