Hi Everyone,

Anne Burnett from France faced a difficult challenge with her phobic husband but handled it routinely with EFT. She says, "Normally I have to go in to the scanning room with him and hold his hand while he is going through the machine, and sometimes he just cannot go through with the scanning procedure.  Well this time [after EFT] he went in on his own, had the scan and came out totally unfazed.  Amazing!"

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I discovered your website about 5 months ago, use the technique every day, and have had success on myself for fibromyalgia, general aches and pains, as well as emotional issues.  I have also used it to help a friend's tinnitus, and my son who has Multiple Sclerosis is having EFT therapy right now in England.  I do surrogate tapping for him to accept this therapy, as he is very skeptical.

My husband had a stroke 2½ years ago and has to have scans every so often.  He is very claustrophobic, as well as having a fear of heights, tunnels, high open places, etc. You name it and he has it.  Anyway, he had to go for a full body scan recently and he was so worked up about it he didn't sleep the night before.

I did some EFT on him, Even though I don't like scans, I can do this, people do it all the time…  He has a problem with the love bit, so I leave it out usually.  I then repeated the tapping before going into the clinic.  Normally I have to go in to the scanning room with him and hold his hand while he is going through the machine, and sometimes he just cannot go through with the scanning procedure.  Well this time he went in on his own, had the scan and came out totally unfazed.  Amazing!

He is very impressed and we are going to work next on his speech problems, he lost the power of speech after his stroke, and he has bronchial and heart problems and a very bad leg ulcer, I will be using EFT for all his problems.

Thank you so much Gary for sharing this wonderful tool with us.

Hugs,

Anne Burnett
