Hi Everyone,

Linda Thompson from Nova Scotia skillfully applies EFT to a young girl for severe back pain. The success was amplified when it was discovered that the young girl had a "boy friend issue." Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary!

 I have a particularly heartwarming story of a friend's daughter who has been to me several times for EFT. These two incidences were evidence of what an emotional issue can do to anyone, even a 14 year old.

Sam is the daughter of a friend who lives just down the street.  She is a vibrant, beautiful young lady with a wonderful, fresh sense of humour.  The family moved from England last May and I immediately connected with them and have a soft spot in my heart for the daughters (Sam and Holly, 9). 

Sam has been suffering with extreme back pain since the age of 7 and has just recently been diagnosed with Scoliosis and mild Spinal Bifida.  This particular Saturday our phone rang, my husband answered and I overheard him telling someone that we didn't have any pills for back pain so I immediately questioned who it was and when I heard it was Sam I took the phone. 

She sounded terrible and I asked her what was wrong.  She was in such pain and wanted to know if we had any pills we could give her.  I said no but I could come down to do EFT on her.  Her voice sounded as though her tongue was swollen and I suspected she had already taken too many drugs and upon questioning her she admitted to 3 extra strength pain killers.  I was so worried that she had overdosed as she is just a tiny thing and got down there as soon as I could.

She was still in her robe as she found it difficult to get out of bed and so I immediately tapped on the pain, which was an 8 even after the drugs.  I got her to describe it in detail and went immediately to "even tho I have this terrible sharp pain in my back, I'm still a really cool chick" (from past experience with her she always smiles at that one..). 

After one round she was down to a 5 and after 2 rounds it was completely eradicated.  Even I was skeptical as she moved around and tried to find the pain.  Her face lit up and she hugged me and said her back had never felt so good.  I then asked her how the drugs made her feel and her words were "gunky". So "even tho I took those pills and they are making me feel gunky, I need to get them out of my system so that I can enjoy the day and hang out with my friends, because I'm still a really cool chick".  Just one round of tapping and she felt good again.  Later that day she was having a driving lesson with my husband and the pain had not returned, she was bright and full of smiles.

I had a feeling it would come back, though and lo and behold Monday night her mother drove her over.  She was distraught and at my request had not taken any drugs.  We immediately began tapping on the pain but it didn't change one little bit.  Her pain level was a 9 and she also had menstrual pain at the same intensity.  It went down to an 8 and then it was worse in her back and then worse in her abdomen and so it kept going like that.  I tried to pull out of her what had happened that day but was concerned that she may have trouble verbalizing it as her mother was right there.  I told her she could just think about it but Sam was adamant that nothing had happened and nothing was going on. 

I asked her to say "even tho there may be some emotions behind this pain, I don't know what they could be, maybe hurt, maybe sadness, who knows, I'm just 14 & I'm allowed to have all these feelings and I'm still a really cool chick".  The pain went down to a 3 - AH HA!   

Her mother finally piped up and said "oh, come on Sam, what about that boy Paul (not his real name)" and Sam immediately blushed - AH HA!  Sam told me that she really liked him but he didn't like her "even tho Paul doesn't like me & I'm trying really hard......LOTS OF TEARS......I told her to stay with it and I kept tapping on the hurt, the pain etc.. and then she finally smiled.  She also revealed that the boy that told her that Paul didn't like her was her good friend's boyfriend but that he liked her (ah, now I remember being 14 - and it's not easy!) and that she felt guilty about that and so on...."even tho I have Paul and Susan (not her real name) and Kevin (not his real name) in my back, it's not worth carrying them around with me because it's causing me pain and even tho they are having a party in my back I would like for them to get out and leave me alone and I know for sure I'm a really cool chick".  She stood up and all the pain was a 0! 

On her way home she told her mom how happy she was and they she didn't know how she could ever repay me.  That was enough payment for me.  Her mom also told me that she was almost brought to tears watching the whole process.  I really enjoy children as they are such a clean slate and so receptive to the process.  It's approximately 2 weeks later and she reports that she is still pain free.  Hopefully we got it but I still have a niggling feeling that we may have to go back sometime to when she was 7.  In the meantime she's a happy camper.

Sorry this is so long but I wanted to really get the essence of how the events unfolded.  It was such a good feeling that I woke up in the middle of the night excited that I was able to help someone that I really have affection for to achieve so much relief.

Cheers, Linda Thompson
