When EFT relieves pain, does it merely mask the pain and thus thwart the ability for pain to signal danger?

I doubt it...but no one knows the answer to this for sure. However, I have applied EFT thousands of times and have never heard of anyone whose pain was "inappropriately blocked". Many people have reduced or eliminated their pains with EFT and some have witnessed swelling disappear before their eyes. But, to my knowledge, no one has complained that the pain was "merely masked".

This concern is a valid one. However, I think its genesis comes from the use of medications which, indeed, often mask symptoms. By contrast, EFT is not a medication and does not enter an artificial substance into the bloodstream. Thus I am at a loss to conclude that it masks symptoms. Even if it did, some may find it preferable to pain blocking medications.

In my experience, if EFT doesn't solve the problem by eliminating the cause, then the physical discomfort will re-appear. To me, this simply calls for more rounds of EFT on other aspects and/or referral to a specialist.
