Understanding the 9 Gamut Procedure
Understanding the 9 Gamut Procedure that helps reduce stress and unlock wellness. It draws inspiration from both tapping therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, a popular form of psychotherapy that works to change negative thought patterns. The 9 Gamut Procedure can be used as a standalone treatment or it can be integrated into your existing healing or energy modality practice.
This procedure involves tapping on acupressure points that are associated with traditional Chinese medicine. These acupuncture points are connected to the body’s energy pathways called meridians. By tapping on these points, you can release blockages that hold onto emotional issues and promote healing.

In the 9 Gamut Procedure, you’re guided to replay a troubling memory in your mind while tapping the gamut point (located on the back of your hand between your ring finger and little finger at the base). You then bilaterally stimulate your brain by moving your eyes, humming, and counting. This helps you process and release the traumatic memory. It’s similar to other well-known trauma therapy techniques like EMDR.
While the humming and eye movements may seem unnecessary, they play an important role in this process. The humming and eye movements help balance the Triple Warmer – Spleen meridian which is associated with emotions such as fear, anger, and anxiety. Disruptions in this energy system can trigger the fight or flight stress response.
Additionally, if you’re dealing with particularly emotional trauma or an overwhelming experience, it may be helpful to process every aspect of the incident. This can help prevent the story from getting stuck in the brain and keep you stuck in a negative pattern. The 9 Gamut Procedure provides an opportunity to do this in a way that’s safe and gentle.
