Teaching EFT to Reduce Pain
By Barbara June Appelgren, Certified EFT Practitioner
Sometimes, while attending an event, I get talking with someone about EFT.
Another attendee, a retired nurse, asked me about EFT. We’d talked about the meridians and strong emotions being like stuck energy.
Now, as we got up to go on a break, she was having trouble standing. “It’s my feet,” she explained. “They burn from morning till night.”
I offered to show her how to do tapping.
We first just tapped on the physical sensation of burning, and then I asked when the burning first started. She said, “Just after my husband left me.”
We tapped on how the burning began when her husband left her, and the thought came to me to ask her whether she had been afraid that she couldn’t stand on her own two feet.
When she agreed enthusiastically, we added these words to her tapping. This round of tapping brought her pain from a 10 down to a 1.
When we finished, she just sat there looking totally bewildered. “How does that work? They haven’t stopped burning altogether but it’s so much better.”
I feel blessed to see EFT results happen from such casual encounters.
