Hi Everyone,

Not every first time EFT experience is the same as this one by Ruth Ruddock. But this sort of thing happens often enough to make real believers out of many. This article is not instructional but provides motivation for all EFT beginners to keep at it. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

I am one of the "newbies" who has been delightfully surprised at the success achieved using EFT with some of my friends. Recently, I was talking on the phone with a friend, Marilyn, and she mentioned having pain and stiffness in her knee and hip for quite some time. It had gotten to the point of creating great difficulty for her in getting out of bed in the mornings to the point of not being able to stand up straight. She found that she had to have something nearby to pull herself up out of chairs, because the pain and stiffness was getting so bad.

I suggested that we try EFT over the phone, and I told her that she would be my first attempt to use it with someone other than on myself. She agreed and we began to tap, after I explained the tapping points, etc. She said that the pain and stiffness was at a 10 on her level of intensity scale. We did three tapping rounds and I told her to get up out of her chair. There was a pause and I heard her squealing on the other end of the phone. She said "I can't believe this!! I got right up from the chair, no pain and no stiffness."

So I asked her to walk around a little bit, and I could hear her continuing to laugh and exclaim "Oh my goodness, I can't believe this!!!" She then said that she wanted to try this with her daughter, who has severe migraine headaches. I encouraged her to do that and let me know how it went. For a first-time EFT experience, I was thrilled with the results we had over the phone! I have gone on to help others using this marvelous "tool," but will never forget that initial success!
Thanks for allowing me to share this story.

Happy Tapper,
