This brief article by Denis Jevon of the UK provides some helpful tips about using EFT with animals, with emphasis on restoring confidence for their performances.

By Denis Jevon

Hi Gary,

As a masseur and acupressure practitioner I have been working for a few years with Dogs and Horses, with good results. However the animals often take a while to get back to normal activities (show jumping or in the show ring) and I realized that this was because of fear or anxiety on their part that they would still experience the discomfort/pain.

So I have been using surrogate EFT + tapping direct on the animal to give them back their confidence. I do this by intuiting which points to use for setup and for the actual process (sometimes I skip the setup) and I use phrases like:

Even though I am anxious that my back will hurt when I jump, or

Even though I am afraid that my rider will be unhappy with my performance, or similar.

Another variation is:

Even though in the past my neck hurt when I was in the show ring..... followed by:

From now on I will be comfortable and happy in the show ring...

With a reminder phrase like 'happy and comfortable' or 'free from pain'.

I hope that this gives folks some ideas and encourages them to try out EFT with their animals. The potential for animal behavior work as well as these therapeutic aspects is spectacular.

Denis Jevon.
