Surrogate EFT aids menstrual cramps

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™. As a result, it is likely outdated.

Here is a brief but informative account of using EFT surrogately for a common problem. Note that at one point this was done across the globe (from the USA to Italy). Many thanks to Kathy O'Donnell for sharing her experience.


By Kathy O'Donnell

My daughter gets very severe menstrual cramps but did not want me to physically tap on her because (1) she was in pain and (2) she is a little leary of my weird ideas. I tapped surrogately (remotely) for 10 to 15 minutes silently on various issues I could think of and her pain reduction went noticeably down and her whole time of discomfort throughout the day was much less than usual.

This same daughter was in Italy this past summer with an older sister and was very homesick and emotional (I think the emotional part was exacerbated by starting the Pill to help ease her menstrual cramps). I was in a car as a passenger for many hours in the states so had time to work on her with surrogate tapping to help her. I did this in hopes that our next phone call would have a calmer daughter on the other end.

She called later that day and had clearly turned a corner in her state of mind. She was calmer, more relaxed, not tearful, more in control of herself, not hysterical (which is a word I could use to describe our earlier phone calls). The rest of the trip went much more smoothly for her, her nights, which had been plagued by extreme homesickness, were not so difficult. I would say she went from a 10 to a 2, it was that dramatic.

Because both of my children think I come up with some weird health ideas, like tapping, they don't want it physically done to them, but they will ask for it by name if I do it to myself silently in their presence because they have experienced its effectiveness personally.

Hugs, Kathy O'Donnell
