Leon Jay, from New Zealand, helps an elderly lady bring back circulation into her otherwise cold extremities. Partial progress is made by aiming EFT at the physical symptoms but it wasn't until emotional issues were cleared that complete relief was achieved.

Hi Gary,

I had an elderly client request a session for treating her cold extremities. Jan had been suffering from cold feet and hands for many years and nothing, not even a heater, seemed to really help.

I started by asking which was worse. It turned out that the coldness in her feet was a 9 on the 0-10 intensity scale.. We began with what we had to work with, 'even though I have cold feet....', 'even though my feet are numb...'. After 2 or 3 rounds she stabilized at a 5. This was an improvement, of course, but we could not get below that.

I then asked her how she felt emotionally when she took her attention to her feet. She was unsure why but she had become very angry. I asked her what this anger reminded her of, or if she had felt it before. She suddenly had a look of shock on her face. She was recalling being 4 years old and just finding out that her father had hung himself. Because of the era in which she grew up, she had to be taken from home so her mum could recuperate, and because she no longer had financial support.

The anger came from the rejection she experienced and the lack of understanding her 4 year old self had about the situation. A couple of quick rounds later and this feeling had cleared. After working through some more emotional layers on this subject another insight came to her giving clarity to her situation.

'even though I'm angry at not being wanted...'
'even though I must be a bad girl who nobody loves to be sent away....'
'even though mum doesn't love me any more.....


Her entire life she had been trying to please others so they would love her and not reject her. Even in her old age she was unwilling to take time for herself, time she most desperately needed. Again A few rounds of EFT clearing her blocks to supporting herself first and she felt lighter than she felt in years. What's more the circulation improved and had returned warmth to both hands and feet. The level was down to 1, which cleared completely when warmed near a heater.

She was most amazed at how quickly the underlying emotional issues surfaced, and how quickly they cleared. She now looks forward to her final years more relaxed and is happy to put her self first more often.
