Why is the video window
The size of the video that
is displayed in your browser window is determined by the speed of your internet
connection. Depending on a number of variables at any given moment, you may have
a faster or slower connection. If the connection is slow when the software is
checking, you will get a small video screen. If you have a broad band or high
speed connection, just hit the refresh button and you will most likely get a larger
Why does the video screen
not come up?
You will need the Free
Shockwave Player. Most browsers already have this installed. If not, you can
get it by clicking the link.
I was able to play the
video before, but I came back to the page and now it won't come up. What's going
You may need to clear the

the help file on your browser if you need more information.
Why do I need to rate
the intensity on a zero to ten scale?
This is one way to help you
keep track of how well you are progressing with the program. It's an easy way
to check in and get feedback. You could go out and buy a bunch of expensive biofeedback
equipment, but rating the intensity on a scale of 0-10 is quick, easy and free.
Are the results permanent?
are often amazed that such an intense problem could be handled so quickly and
simply that they have a difficult time believing that the results will be long-lasting.
I can assure you that in the vast majority of the cases, the results will be permanent.
Sometimes a related but unresolved issue might arise. This just means that another
aspect of the issue needs to be taken care of, in which case all you need to do
is use the four steps of the tapping program to resolve it.
Don't I need to "process"
Most people who ask about
the need to process the problem have either not used the tapping program or they've
been in a lot of therapy. While it can be useful in some therapeutic contexts
to "process" a problem, from a Peak Performance perspective we are far
more interested in results. My observation is that people who get results with
this program don't have any need, desire, or interest in"processing"
their traumatic experience - the symptoms of PTSD are gone, and that's all they
care about. The traumatic event will be seen from a completely different - and
healthy - perspective.
Does this process make
the memory of the event go away?
No. The memory of the event
will still be there, perhaps even in great detail. What will be gone, however,
is the emotional intensity around it. The event will no longer have any charge.
overall intensity of the traumatic event is gone, but I still have some symptoms,
what should I do?
You can repeat four steps
of the tapping program. Address the specific symptoms or the situation around
which they occur. You may also want to read the "Issues" document mentioned
