EFT Practitioner Bev Nerenberg’s account of tapping with a new employee at her workplace for a headache at a SUD level of 10 is one of the many times she has asked those nearby to try EFT, a technique that “looks and sounds strange,” before reaching for a pain pill. The headache, which her doctor said might require surgery, was down to a 1 after three rounds of tapping. Bev ends her account with a call to action, saying, “We all need to grow this grass roots effort to introduce EFT into the Western medicine world. The positive possibilities are staggering!”

Stacey was a new employee where I worked and, one morning, asked if anyone had an Aleve. Since I learned EFT over four years ago, if anyone comes within earshot of me and asks for any kind of pain pill, I ask what they need it for, and if they’d be willing to try something before taking a pain reliever. Stacey said she’d had a headache for three months and that it feels like there are bricks on her head, and yes, she’d be willing to try anything. She also told me that she had just been to her ear nose throat doctor that morning who told her the headaches were from her sinuses and the only way to get rid of them was with surgery.
Her SUD level was a 10 when we started. In a situation like that, I often tell people just to go along with me and warn them that it “looks and sounds strange,” that there are reasons why we do it this way and I’ll explain after their symptoms are relieved.
We used “chasing the pain” and tapped on her headache and the pressure in her sinuses. After three rounds, her pain was a 1 and she was astounded, to say the least.
Her headache did reappear a few times in succeeding days, but never to a SUD level of 10, and we always tapped it down.
When she went back to her ENT 30 days later for a follow-up visit, she told him her headaches were gone, and he asked what she had done, if anything. Stacey told him “not to laugh,” but she was doing this tapping thing called EFT. The doctor asked her to show him where she taps and, after watching her, told her those were the correct points. Even though he was familiar with EFT, he had recommended surgery to her anyway!
We all need to grow this “grass roots” effort to introduce EFT into the Western medicine world. The positive possibilities are staggering!
