It provides practical uses for EFT Tapping but you should also explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT, by reading our free e-book, The Unseen Therapist™, and/or get help from a Certified EFT Practitioner.

Hi Everyone,

I think you will find these opinions and experiences of Adrienne Fisher of interest. She is a physicians assistant and says, "Basically, my choices were to call an ambulance and send them to the ER or to tap with them.  I have to laugh that when the patients are in crisis and needing the most immediate and effective help, I pull out the "big guns" and teach them EFT.  No drug has ever been able to do what EFT can." Note that this is Adrienne's opinion and experience and not necessarily that of EFT or others.

Hugs, Gary

Hi, Gary!

I am a physician assistant, and recently changed jobs to work in a women's care center.  We do a lot of primary care in this clinic, and a lot of our patients won't go anywhere else for medical care.  My new boss knows I do "that energy stuff", but doesn't know much about it and would rather I stuck to western medicine.

However, I have had two interesting cases in the last 2 weeks:

The first was "Linda", who came in literally beside herself.  She was trying to quit smoking, but had just been evicted from her home and the world was crashing in on her.  She was unable to sit still in her chair, constantly pulling at her clothes, adjusting her position, taking deep breaths.  Her eyes were everywhere, and her energy felt as though she would fly into a million pieces at any moment.

The western thing was to start an antidepressant, which was fine, except what to do until it started to take affect 2-3 weeks from now?  There were anti-anxiety meds, but how was she supposed to work and be able to get her house back?  And, for that matter, how was she supposed to just drive herself to the pharmacy to pick up the prescriptions, if she could afford them in the first place?

Being new to the area, I knew nothing of crisis intervention centers or any other community resources.  I truly did not think she could even drive herself to the hospital.  My boss was out of the office, and there was no one to ask and the waiting room was full of patients.

I said, "Linda, look at me.  I want you to trust me and just do what I do and say what I say."  We tapped the karate chop point and said, Even though this sucks and I lost my house and I am coming apart…

She was suddenly completely focused, gazing intently at me.  We went through the tapping points very quickly repeating … This just sucks … I just lost my house … I have no idea how to get through this … and so forth.

After one round she was quiet and remarkably calmer.  I asked her 1-10 how bad was she when she came in, and she said she was 100.  Now, she rated herself at around 4.  "What did you do?" she asked.  I told her that her energy was all glitched up - that her atoms with those protons, neutrons and electrons were just tapped back in to line.  She was calm and collected enough to walk out of the office and drive herself safely.  (BTW, she got her house back!)

The second patient, "Sue," was so depressed she couldn't stop crying.  She had been depressed for years, but had recently gotten worse.  Her medication had been changed, and had helped initially, but then the depression returned.  She was on the brink of losing her job.

Again, the office was packed, and there was very little time to work with her.  I simply asked her to do what I did and to say what I said.  The set up was, Even though I am so terribly depressed…

She went from weeping uncontrollably to staring at me dry eyed, calm and amazed.  "What did you do?", she asked.  I gave her a very brief explanation, drew a diagram of the points and gave her the EFT website.  I told her to tap the points whenever she got upset or depressed, and not to worry about what she said or how she said it.

Both of these ladies were in states of being that demanded something be done immediately.  I could not allow them to leave the clinic as they were for their own safety or that of others on the road.  Basically, my choices were to call an ambulance and send them to the ER or to tap with them.  I have to laugh that when the patients are in crisis and needing the most immediate and effective help, I pull out the "big guns" and teach them EFT.  No drug has ever been able to do what EFT can.

Happy tapping!
