In this brief case, Peggy Lawson uses EFT to relieve her Dentist's substantial back pain. In the process, she "borrows benefits" and reduces her own pain and discomfort while sitting in the dentist's chair.

By Peggy Lawson

Dear Gary:

I had an appointment at the dentist the other day. He had already cancelled a previous appointment earlier in the week, because he had hurt his back.

When I arrived at his office, the dental asst. informed me that he was still in a lot of pain, but didn't want to disappoint any more of his patients. When the dentist walked in, I could see the pain in his eyes. Furthermore, it occurred to me that I truly didn't want anyone working in my mouth who was in that much pain.

I asked him if he could think of any other emotional reason for the pain in his back and he said, "No, I don't think so. And it's not exactly in my back, more in my, ahem, lower left cheek." Then I asked him if he was willing to allow me to show him something that might help him. He recoiled, and said, "Will it hurt?" My eyes slid over to the huge syringe with the 4 inch needle that he was preparing to stick in my jaw, and I dryly replied, "Not as much as that's going to hurt me!"

Still, he was desperate and willing to try anything. So I sat up in the chair, and did 4 rounds of EFT.

"Even though my lower back hurts..."

"Even though I have this pain in my left cheek..."

Finally I said:

"Even though I have a big pain in my ass..."

Which, after 2 rounds, left him chuckling, but more importantly, pain- free. Free to work on me next! This next part is incredible to me.

I don't have any phobias about going to the dentist, but it's not something I look forward to either. I hate when the needle goes into my jaw, and I really dislike the way the numbness makes my lips feel 10 sizes larger and I can't even tell if I'm drooling or not. The numbness taking its time to wear off is very unpleasant also and I sometimes bite the inside of my mouth until it does.

I had none of that!

I didn't even feel the needle going into my gum, and I never felt any pain, nor the unpleasant numb feeling. It was if I hadn't had or needed an anesthetic at all. It was amazing to me. Apparently, since I had spent several minutes tapping for and with him, I borrowed the benefits of EFT from the dentist! I can't remember when that's ever happened to me before and I tap on a lot of people!

PEGGY CONTINUES: I highly recommend tapping on your dentist next time it's necessary to go, if he or she will let you and see if it doesn't help you!

Best wishes,

Peggy Lawson
