Hi Everyone,

Children have active imaginations that we can use to enhance rapport and better deliver EFT. Gillian Robinson does so in this interesting case with her grandson. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

I am a relative new-comer to EFT and since finding your site on the net, I have read the manual and watched the DVD's and recently done the approved EFT Level 1 & 2 workshops with Rehana Webster here in New Zealand.  I wanted to share the amazing results I've had with my grandson, using The Movie Technique and the different ways in which it can be used.

My grandson Max who is 8, stayed home from school with me yesterday as he had a headache with a rating of 10.  Max is already familiar with EFT as I have used it on other issues for him.  I offered to tap for him if he wanted to.

He was happy to be tapped on and we did The Movie Technique while he described the headache himself. I asked him to describe the headache and he told me that the colour of the pain was RED CHILLIE PEPPER!   He proceeded with the description and said it had legs and was moving from the back of his head where it had started.  I said we could chase the headache and he said after a few seconds 'the pain is running out of energy it was now at the front and was a blue chillie'. 

So I suggested we put a Fort around it to which he responded 'yes with titanium gates!'.   By this time we had tapped 3 or 4 rounds of the shortcut recipe.  Max then said the headache had a tunnel to a place where it could get some food, at this point I asked him what would happen if it did not get any food, after thinking for a moment he said, "I would not be able to have a day off school!"


At this point I said it is okay to tell the headache it can go now if it wants to as it is okay to have a day off school sometimes and he does not need a headache for that to happen. I was still tapping and noticed his colouring changed from pale to pink.   Then he said, "here it comes Grandma, its popped out of my ear, there it is flying all the way to America!"

He was totally relaxed happy and free!!!

It took about five minutes for him to be headache free!!!
