A useful relief for Tinnitus

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™.  It provides practical uses for EFT Tapping and most EFT'ers should find it very helpful.  However, if your benefits are temporary or a more in-depth approach is needed, you are urged to explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT, by reading our free e-book, The Unseen Therapist, and/or (3) get help from a Certified EFT Practitioner.  

Horst Benesch (from Germany) gives us this brief, but insightful, example of reducing tinnitus through finding a related metaphor (the sound of the sea). Note that he was stopped from going further because the client wanted to keep a modest level of the problem.

By Horst Benesch EFT-ADV

A client mentioned that she had tried tapping on tinnitus, but her own tapping "didn't work" (she was previously introduced to tapping).

Q: What exactly did you tap on?

A. Tinnitus.

Q: How do you recognize the tinnitus?

A: It is like a rushing.

Q: What does that remind you of?

A: It is like the rushing of the sea on the seashore.

Thus we tapped: "Even though I like to hear this rushing of the sea within me ..."

The initial tinnitus rating of 8 immediately fell down to a 2. The client was really happy, but further progress was not possible, because the client said that a bit of this sound she still likes to keep now, and she will go on by herself, when it feels appropriate for her.

Whether or not there is an unresolved emotional issue behind that statement, the future will bring up. But I had to accept it for the moment.

In a recent call (about two months later) she reported that the tinnitus level remained at a constant 2 to 3.

I really like this kind of EFT work.

With warm regards
