“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” – Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)

About Nick Ortner

Schopenhauer’s quote has guided me for the past decade in my exploration of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques”) otherwise known as “Tapping”. And I believe there’s a fourth stage, or a corollary stage that says, “And the truth shall set you free!”

My life’s work is to help fellow seekers, those searching for a better life and those looking to create a better world, in finding paths to self-healing and self-realization – in finding ways to heal the body, relieve physical pain, release emotional traumas and wounds and create a life of abundance and joy. It is through this strange looking but wildly effective technique, “Tapping” that I have experienced personal breakthroughs and have witnessed thousands of others do the same.

I am the CEO of The Tapping Solution, LLC a company with a mission to bring Tapping into the mainstream. Tapping is a healing modality that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. My goal is to empower people to create healthy, abundant and stress-free lives through my books, films, CDs, online events and speaking engagements attended by participants from all over the world.

I am the New York Times bestselling author of The Tapping Solution: A Revolutionary System for Stress-Free Living and The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief: A Step-by-Step Guide to Reducing and Eliminating Chronic Pain. Prior to that, I created and produced the breakthrough documentary film “The Tapping Solution,” which follows ten people who used tapping to overcome significant challenges, including chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, insomnia, devastating grief and more. My books and film document real and extraordinary results that have inspired tens of thousands to follow suit by successfully applying tapping to their lives.

I also produced first-of-their-kind online programs that teach easy, effective ways to apply tapping to anything limiting a person’s life or health. Some noteworthy examples are: The “Tapping World Summit,” a free, annual worldwide online event that has been attended by over 1,000,000 people (www.tappingworldsummit.com) and my popular seven-week EFT coaching programs, which cover common issues such as financial abundance, weight loss and more.

The Tapping Solution team and I are committed to spreading tapping throughout the world, and particularly to supporting its revolutionary and life-changing usage. We've raised over $1,000,000 for tapping-related charities such as Project Light, which aids genocide orphans in Rwanda, Africa (www.projectlightrwanda.com), The Veterans Stress Project, supporting veterans with PTSD (www.stressproject.org), and You Can Thrive! a New York organization providing services for women with cancer (http://youcanthrive.org), and The Tapping Solution Foundation, that I started in 2013 to support the community of Newtown, CT after the tragic shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.(www.TappingSolutionFoundation.org.

I live in Newtown, CT with my wife Brenna and daughter June.
