2.1. ECS

2.1.1. The definition of the BH within the ECS has 2 elements: The Speed and Duration of Tapping SBLS The Position it is secondary where on the body the tapping happens

2.1.2. There is an important difference in the effects between fast/long BLS and slow/short BLS that need to be taken into account.

3. Applications

3.1. ECS

3.1.1. The BH is widely used to reinforce positive emotions, resources and cognitions - usually in the context of other methods, like: Resource Work Inner Safe Place SAFE Method

3.2. In the Literature

3.2.1. "The “Butterfly Hug” (BH) is a self-administer[ed] Bilateral Stimulation (BLS) method (like the eye movement or tapping) to process traumatic material for an individual or for group work. Desensitization (self-soothing) is a reprocessing byproduct using the BH as BLS." [1] Self-administered BLS should only be applied under very strict safety measures and specific circumstances.
