Hi Everyone,

I am sometimes asked if EFT's ability to reduce pain isn't some form of "pain masking" rather than true healing. Well, I'm not a doctor and must advise everyone to seek proper medical advice on these matters. However, in my observations over the years, if a pain keeps coming back after skillful uses of EFT, then that is clear evidence that there is something organically wrong that requires a visit to a qualified physician. Gillian Wightman from the UK gives us a good example of this.

Hugs, Gary

In the summer my son decided it would be a good idea to mountain bike with friends in narrow alleyways in the next village.  My eldest son was filming this event, including the crash that injured his arm.

When he came home I was subjected to watching the whole 'exciting' drama on film and had to do a lot of tapping to be able to watch the video.  It made me feel sick and shaky to watch at first.

However my son’s arm became really swollen and painful and we tapped for all the pain.  I used the video as the real life movie technique which accessed all his feelings about it and the physical reactions as he watched the movie.

Even though my arm is so sore and I feel so stupid...

Even though I am so mad with myself, I should have turned...

Even though this really hurts and I think I've wrecked my arm for the summer holidays and I AM SO ANGRY with myself...

These were some of the phrases he used, along with continual tapping on all the pain, and the pain and swelling came down.  However it reappeared after using it the next day.  My husband suspected a fracture and suggested we go to the hospital for an x-ray.

I got him to tap all the way to the hospital, when we got there again the swelling had subsided, so much so the doctor told us it was most definitely not a fracture and was bruised and should be gently used.  He reluctantly agreed to an x-ray, as I felt he was not taking into account the tapping we had done.

The next day my son was nearly fainting with pain and we kept tapping to control the pain. Two evenings later we got a phone call to say they had done a review of the x-ray and there was a fracture after all.  They showed us the x-ray and at first we couldn't see it, but after blowing it up and reducing it we could see it clearly. 

We kept up the tapping as my son was so upset at the thought of missing out on sailing over the summer etc.

To everyone’s surprise on the two week checkup it was totally healed and he had a great summer!  But he gave up the mountain biking in the village.
