Dale Teplitz, MA was about to receive a massage when her massage therapist wanted to cancel the session because of a migraine headache. Dale applied EFT for the migraine and within 10 minutes she was receiving her massage.

Dear Gary,

I'd like to share a story with you about a visit to my favorite massage therapist, Francine, at Encinitas Acupuncture and Massage, six months ago. I was lying on the therapist's table, happily anticipating my massage, wearing only a towel. Then Francine entered the room and announced that she was sorry that she wouldn't be able to do the session because she was suffering from a migraine, which she had for the past 5 days. She had already pushed herself too far that day and planned to cancel the rest of her schedule and go home. She reported that it is rare for her to get migraines, and this was by far the worst and most unrelenting one she had ever had.

She had received chiropractic, acupuncture and massage therapy from her associates over the past several days, without noticeable relief from her symptoms. I asked if I could try to help her migraine go away with a tapping method called EFT. She said she was desperate enough at this point to try anything.

I sat up, wrapped in my towel, and asked her to pull up a chair. I started doing the tapping on her, because she didn't know the tapping technique, and the clock was ticking on my massage appointment. After a brief discussion about how the migraine felt, I had her repeat the following while I tapped:

Even though I have this migraine...

Even though I don't know the cause of the migraine...

Even though my head hurts and I feel sick...

Even though I'm tired and stressed out...

She started feeling better instantly!

And then we added positive choices:

I choose to release any physical or emotional causes of this migraine.

I don't need to have it anymore.

I can complete my day feeling totally healthy.

After only ten minutes of talking and tapping, she felt well enough to give me a fantastic massage treatment! She was able to see the rest of her scheduled clients that day as well. She now reports that the migraine went away completely by the end of that day and has not returned during the six months following that brief EFT session.
