Hi Gary,

Over the past 5 years of being an Advanced EFT practitioner and a guitar instructor I've seen so many emotional and physical issues relieved with EFT it just amazes me.  Here are some of them:

1) Students who complain of finger pain get instant relief by simply tapping the fingers of the opposite hand that hurts.  Typically the left hand fingers hurt the most from pressing on the strings.  The youngsters I teach they are amazed when there pain is gone in two to three rounds of simple finger tapping.

2) A 15 year old student who continually beat herself up for not playing the right notes got relief in one session.  This turned out to be a global OCD issue which affected her in all areas of her academic life.  She felt the need to do everything perfectly the first time.  The OCD started when her second grade teacher scolded her for not drawing a good picture and promptly crumbled up her picture and threw it in the garbage.  From then on she would obsess over doing everything perfectly related to schoolwork and learning.  She feared being reprimanded for not doing perfect work.  All this was gone with 30 minutes of EFT.

3) A 50 year old student complained of hearing loss and tinnitus in his left ear.  This was the result of a surgery for an abscess in his ear 10 years prior that left him with 50% hearing loss and tinnitus.  We tapped for less than 10 minutes, focusing on just the tinnitus in his left ear.  His hearing returned and his tinnitus reduced to almost zero!  He said that he could hear in "3D" for the first time in years.  He was simply shocked and astounded.

4) Students often come in to their first lesson with anxiety about learning music, new teacher, performance anxiety etc.  Since it is their first lesson I use mental or remote EFT, just imagining the meridian points lighting up red.  Usually in 5 minutes all of them are relaxed and ready to learn.  I can do this while I'm teaching.

5) On many occasions I've had students who were squinting to see the notes.  I ask them if they are having trouble seeing.  If they say yes I ask if they would like to try a simple technique that may help them to see better.  This has never failed me.  Every student that has had blurry vision had it clear up with about 5 minutes of EFT.  All of them were younger students from 5-15 years old.

6) Students with physical complaints of headaches, neck pain, back pain, leg pain, wrist pain (carpal tunnel), and foot pain all get relief with less than 10 minutes of EFT.  There are also many one minute wonders.

7) Students with allergies, runny noses, coughing, itchy eyes, get a good degree of relief within minutes of applying EFT.

8) Students who come in with anger or depression issues from home or school get quick relief and can then focus easily on their lesson.  

9) Students with ADD/ADHD often need more EFT than I can give them in a 30 minute lesson.  Ten minutes of EFT seems to calm them down enough to be able to focus for the duration of the lesson.  I often use remote EFT as the physical tapping takes too much time away from the lesson.

10) This one is probably the greatest asset to any teacher who struggles with a rowdy group of students and it is EFT at its best.  Can you imagine a classroom full of rowdy kids and all of them with EFT points lighting up at the same time?  I've tried it and actually have seen them calm down within about 5 minutes.  It is possible to do this but requires very good visualization.  If you are a teacher familiar with remote or distance EFT try it sometime.  If you can't visualize the whole classroom of kids just try a few of the loudest troublemakers first.  You may be very surprised by what is possible just using your imagination and EFT!

As you can see EFT has been a Godsend for my students and myself.  EFT has allowed me to teach music much more effectively.  The results I see with so many different types of issues are close to 100%.  In my humble opinion EFT should be a standard therapy every teacher should know.

Many Blessings

Steve Levine
