Hi Everyone,

Gary Clark's client had a "terrible back pain" until EFT was aimed at the appropriate emotional issue. Note how Gary discovered the true problem. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

After watching the first three sets of your excellent videos, I decided to start using EFT in my practice. I am a Myotherapist so I deal mainly with people's muscle pain.

Last week I had a call from a lady who said, "I have this terrible back pain, can you help?"

Since fixing back pain is my daily fare, I invited her to visit me in the clinic. When she arrived, after the usual detail taking, I examined her back, and to my surprise there wasn't much in the way of the trigger points that usually cause this type of pain.

So after dealing with what little soft tissue problems there were, I said,

"Will you get down off the massage table and tell me how it feels."

"It's a bit better" she said, "but it's still sore."
Her pain had reduced from a 10 to an 8

"OK" I said "can you point to the exact place where it hurts."

She indicated the top of the sacrum, so then I placed my hand there and said, "If this part of your back could talk to you, what would it say?"

Quick as a flash she said, "Escape."

"And what do you want to escape from?" I said

"Work." she replied.

"And what is it about work that you want to escape from?" I asked.

"Oh" she said, "I run my own business, and work has been terribly slow lately, it's a real pain in the butt."

"Did you hear what you just said?" I replied.

"Oh my god, I've been telling people for the last three weeks that work is a pain in the butt," she said.

I grinned and said, "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it"

"What do we do now?" she asked

"EFT" I replied.

We ran two rounds of EFT, with the set up phrases of:
"Even though my work is a pain in the butt," and
"Even though I have been saying that work is a pain in the but, I truly and deeply......."

Just two rounds completely cleared the pain, from 8 to 0 and the remaining residual stiffness disappeared with an eye roll.

I couldn't help thinking later, that I could have saved an awful lot of time if I had just used EFT first.
