EFT for Pain Management

One of the most frequent uses of EFT is to treat pain.  Physicians, nurses, dentists and other health professionals have reported remarkable results when they have used EFT for both acute and chronic pain patients. In  addition, many individuals have applied EFT successfully on their own to reduce or eliminate severe, sometimes crippling pain in themselves or others

This does not mean that EFT always works to reduce pain, it does not work in all cases or with all individuals, and clearly it should not be used in place of medical treatment.  Because it is gentle and non-invasive, however, EFT seems well worth trying for most instances of pain and many times it works when nothing else does.

Read accounts of using EFT for pain to acquaint yourself with how it is applied for this purpose.  Please realize, however, that these accounts are only a small sample of the uses that have actually been reported for pain. Others can be found by going to eftuniverse.com.  New uses are constantly being reported.

When you read these articles you will notice that EFT is often used to address the underlying emotions that are driving the pain; something that greatly increases the effectiveness of EFT. In some cases you may also read about “proxy tapping” (surrogate tapping) with EFT, a method that has proven to be extremely effective in many instances although we do not know exactly why it works, as yet.
