Tapping into Relief: Using Bi-Tapp for Pain Management

Physical pain is something that we all have had experience with; falling down, dealing with sports injuries, headaches, etc. When your pain is intense, it is almost impossible to employ typical pain management techniques, like taking a slow, deep breath. This is because your sympathetic nervous system is activated, dumping stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol into your system to help you manage the current moment. It often becomes difficult to follow directions or remember any coping skills you have been previously taught.  Innovative solutions like Bi-Tapp offer a natural way to manage pain through bilateral stimulation (BLS). By regulating the nervous system in real time, Bi-Tapp tappers help you regain control, reduce pain, and enhance your quality of life.

Understanding Bilateral Stimulation

Bi-Tapp is a wearable device that uses bilateral stimulation to activate both sides of the brain through gentle, rhythmic tapping. This process automatically helps calm an overactive amygdala, which is responsible for activating the fight/flight response. When your nervous system is able to return to its baseline, you feel less overwhelmed, less anxious and more in control.

Managing Acute Intense Pain

Acute pain, often resulting from injuries and post-surgery recovery, can trigger an immediate and intense stress response. Dr. Sara Gilman, Psychologist, LMFT, with over 38 years of clinical experience, shares a compelling story of how Bi-Tapp tappers provided critical relief post-surgery. Her husband underwent significant foot reconstruction surgery, and due to a malfunctioning medication pump, he experienced excruciating pain after being sent home. Dr. Gilman recounts:

“His pain was 10+, and it wasn’t letting up. All of a sudden, I said, ‘Honey, can I put Bi-Tapp tappers on you.’ He said, ‘Anything!’ I put the tappers on him, and within two minutes, he took a big, deep breath. I saw his whole body start to ratchet down, then he could breathe and manage the pain. In less than five minutes, he fell asleep. Bi-Tapp regulated his nervous system so he could relax even while experiencing pain.”

This experience highlights the power of Bi-Tapp in managing pain by helping the body shift from a state of acute stress to a more relaxed and regulated state. When you are in acute pain or acute distress, you often tense up and have a difficult time remembering to use any of the coping skills you may have been taught. With Bi-Tapp, you don’t have to do anything other than hold or wear the tappers, the tappers do the work for you. You are able to regulate your nervous system in real-time.

Managing Chronic, Ongoing Pain

Chronic pain, such as that associated with autoimmune disorders or ongoing conditions such as back pain, often creates a constant state of stress, exhaustion and discouragement. Some people who struggle with chronic pain report experiencing depression.  Kelly, who struggles with chronic pain uses the tappers throughout the day and at night to manage her pain levels. She states, “The tappers don’t take away my pain, but lessens the intensity of it so I am able to function better and sleep better.”

If you are able to take your pain level from an 8 on a scale of 0-10, (with 10 being the highest level of pain) to a 5 or less, just by holding or wearing the tappers, you are helping slow down the chronic dumping of stress hormones, which helps you feel more relaxed and improves your mood. Bi-Tapp is a non-pharmaceutical resource.

How Bi-Tapp Helps with Pain Relief

When pain levels are acute or chronic, it is critical to have access to a resource that requires no effort to use. Self-calming strategies, such as slow deep breathing, are helpful when pain levels are lower. However, as distress escalates, these techniques become almost impossible to employ effectively. Bi-Tapp tappers do the tapping for you, providing an effortless pain-relief solution:

  1. Hands-Free and Discreet: The portable and hands-free design of Bi-Tapp tappers allows for discreet use anytime, anywhere, making it easier to manage pain on the go without drawing attention.
  2. Automatic Regulation: Bi-Tapp tappers automatically regulate the nervous system by applying gentle rhythmic pulses, which engage both hemispheres of the brain. This helps to shift the body away from a state of stress and pain to one of calm and regulation.
  3. Immediate Relief: With just the press of a button, Bi-Tapp tappers begin their work, offering immediate relief without the need for conscious effort from the user. This is especially crucial during moments of intense pain when other pain management techniques are too challenging to implement.

The Science Behind Bi-Tapp

Research on bilateral stimulation has shown its effectiveness in regulating the nervous system and reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety. By leveraging this science, Bi-Tapp tappers offer a practical tool for pain management. The device’s patented design delivers quiet, unobtrusive relief, allowing users to continue with their daily activities without interruption.


Bi-Tapp offers a revolutionary approach to pain management by helping your nervous system regulate in a simple way. All you have to do is hold or wear the tappers. Whether used in clinical settings or at home, Bi-Tapp provides a sense of calm and control, helping you live a more peaceful and productive life.
