Hi Everyone,

Here is a compelling case for using EFT for pain management. Georgina Walker got immediate relief from a badly sprained ankle and the whole problem faded within only 12 hours. By contrast, as a former football player, I've sprained ankles, wrists and fingers many times and it typically took 5 to 10 days to heal. Note how Georgina used a form of mental tapping in the process. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary

I have been using EFT on myself and with others for the last 3 years.  In my own case, I use it primarily as an emotional management tool because I had the belief that it doesn't work on physical pain for me (I've been chronically ill for a long time and am still struggling with some core issues).  But the experience described below has certainly helped revise my thinking.

I recently fell, spraining my ankle.  Within seconds, I realized I had done something serious and as thoughts of fear, panic and anxiety flooded my mind, the ankle pain started shooting up the scale, heading toward and intensity level of 8 – 9 out of 10.

At this point, a rather cynical, skeptical voice popped into my head, saying, "Well, I suppose I could try tapping on it."  To my surprise, as soon as I heard my internal voice say the word "tapping", the pain stopped increasing, then started actually decreasing.  (I attribute this fast mental association to the fact that I often tap mentally when I'm in a rush or in public.)

Once I was in the car, I started tapping for 'real’, all the way home.  I tapped primarily on the pain and inflammation as there wasn't a lot of negative self-talk about how I did it, oddly enough. Twenty minutes later, I had almost no pain nor inflammation and could walk almost without a limp. Four hours later, some pain and swelling came back, so I tapped again and they decreased.  Then in the middle of the night, the pain and inflammation came back again, so I tapped a couple more rounds.  In the morning, there was no pain and swelling, although I was black and blue and walked a bit gingerly.  Twelve hours later, I was absolutely fine.  Pretty amazing comeback from what was clearly a bad sprain!
