“Where did the pain go?” is a common response of EFT newcomers. Properly applied, EFT gives an estimated 80% of clients noticeable pain relief within minutes and the result is often long-lasting.
Why such dramatic relief? EFT aims at two vital causes of pain largely outside the medical approach.
Cause #1 – Disrupted Subtle Energies–the energies targeted in acupuncture treatments:
Subtle Energies circulate throughout our bodies and the free flow of this energy can be vital to health. Interrupt this energy flow and the result can be pain and disease. It should be no surprise, then, that repairing any disruptions in energy flow can lead to symptom and pain relief.
Fortunately, easy-to-learn EFT allows even beginners to improve this flow by tapping on acupuncture points.
Cause #2 – Negative Emotions (anger, grief, fear, etc.) and Unprocessed Traumatic Events:
Modern medicine tells us that our emotions trigger various chemicals in our bodies. Joyous emotions can produce healing chemicals while negative emotions can be a major cause of pain and sometimes contribute to disease.
The field of psychoneuroimmunology indicates that when we reduce stress and emotional trauma, the immune system can function more effectively to support our healing process. EFT is remarkable for reducing stress and trauma memories.
