Welcome to the website for Ortner Coaching, LLC. This Disclaimer contains important information we need to share with you and for you to understand. Please be advised of the following:

The information contained on this website and accompanying blog (collectively “website” or “Site”), including ideas, suggestions, techniques, social media postings, methods, processes, videos, articles, downloads, meditations, products, and other materials, is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice.

You understand by viewing this website you will be introduced to information about Somatic Experiencing and Meridian Tapping (“Tapping”).

Somatic experiencing is a form of alternative therapy aimed at relieving the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental and physical trauma-related health problems by focusing on the client’s perceived body sensations (or somatic experiences).

Tapping is an innovative energy-oriented method based on the newly emerging field of energy psychology. The prevailing premise of Tapping is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering well-being. Tapping uses the ancient Chinese meridian system to balance the energy system with a gentle tapping procedure which stimulates designated meridian end points on the face and body while focusing on issues of emotional intensity in order to release the intensity and reframe the issues.

Somatic Experiencing and Tapping have several applications, including use as a self-help tool, a coaching method, and as a therapeutic treatment when used by qualified health care professionals.

Although Somatic Experiencing and Tapping appear to have promising mental, spiritual, and physical benefits, they have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities and therefore, are still considered experimental. Tapping is self-regulated and it’s considered to be alternative or complementary to the healing arts that are licensed in the United States. Due to the experimental nature of Somatic Experiencing and Tapping and because they are relatively new healing approaches and the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risks and benefits are not fully known, you agree to assume and accept full responsibility for any and all risks associated with viewing this website, listening to any recordings or watching any videos, and acting on any information contained on this website and/or in any such recordings or videos.

If you choose to voluntarily use Tapping or Somatic Experiencing, previously vivid or traumatic memories may fade, which could adversely impact your ability to provide detailed legal testimony regarding a traumatic incident. Although people report having positive experiences with Tapping and Somatic Experiencing, please be advised it’s possible to experience emotional distress or physical discomfort which could be perceived as negative side effects If you inadvertently experience any emotional distress or physical discomfort while Tapping or being Somatically aware, especially if you are pregnant, you are advised to stop and to seek professional care, if appropriate.
