That tapping or massaging certain points on the human body heals pains and aches. It has been a belief shared by both spiritualism and the medical profession. The arts of reiki and acupuncture are based on the assumption that some of the points in our body are energy meridians.
These points, dubbed acupoints, are places that need to be pressured or tapped vigorously in order for them to give your nerves energetic jolts, which would in turn give you refills of energy.
In acupuncture circles, this system is called the system of four thumps. When these four points on our body are thumped or tapped hard four times, they help ease out nerves, thereby freeing and rejuvenating the body.
The effects are as follows:
- They give you sense of liveliness, energy, and vitality
- Boost your metabolism and immunity by helping you fight infections
- Give you the will to challenge yourself physically
- Aggravate your natural rhythm and cycles and get your biological clock on time.
