Hip pain vanishes despite the client's skepticism

Hi Everyone,

Skeptics who mistakenly think EFT is a placebo should read this article by Maria Coole from England. Placebo requires belief in EFT by the client and, in this case, the belief was simply nowhere to be found. As the client says repeatedly, "This is mad. This is bonkers."

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary

Just thought I’d relay one of my first experiences of using EFT after finishing advanced EFT training.  My sister “K” phoned me in desperation, suffering from quite severe hip pain.  She had to drive to London the next day and was worried that she would be unable to drive because of the hip pain So she asked me to come round and do EFT on her.  I felt I couldn’t refuse as she was desperate, but I was very nervous – mainly because K is usually very skeptical about anything that “can’t be seen” and I was worried that if it didn’t work, it would confirm her beliefs.

I went to her house reluctantly and delayed doing anything as long as I could by engaging her in chat in the kitchen.  Eventually she asked, "are we going to do this?" and so we went up to her bedroom where we could get some privacy.  K sat on the bed and I sat on a chair in front of her, still very nervous. 

I asked her on a scale of 1 to 10 how bad the pain was.  She replied 4.  I asked her to stand up and again asked her to rate the pain.  She winced and said it was 7.  We started tapping with Even though I’ve got this 7 pain in my left hip… and we did a few rounds.  I asked her to stand up again and rate the pain.  K responded, “this is mad, this is bonkers”.  I asked her what was happening and she said the pain had gone down to a 4 out of 10. 

We tapped again, until it went down to 2.  In between tapping, K kept repeating “this is mad” (and I agreed!!).  Eventually she had just a twinge left and we tapped on the twinge until it disappeared.  K was very relieved (as was I – thank you, God) but still kept saying “this is bonkers”. It took about 10 minutes in all.

Her husband returned from work shortly afterwards and asked, “Well?”.  K replied, still incredulous, “the pain’s gone”.  She saw me out to the front door and said “Thanks”, as if I’d just given her a gift (which I had, of course).

I walked back to my house thanking God, and filled with relief and amazement that it had worked despite my nervousness and reticence and my sister’s skepticism.  She drove to London with no problem the next day, and later told me that when she woke next morning, she had a twinge in her hip and just tapped it away.
