"I came to you some time ago, suffering from chronic pain arising from severe arthritis in my right hip. I had been advised by my surgeon that I should put off the operation for as long as possible, however I was in considerable and fairly constant pain. Consequently I was keen to investigate any natural pain control methods available.
I had a single session with you during which you explained the basics of tapping and helped me to address the symptoms of my pain. By the end of our session I felt comfortable with the technique and confident that I could use it to control my pain.
Since that first session, I successfully used EFT to control the pain in my hip and with immediate effect I went from consuming several pain killers a day to needing none! This positive outcome lasted for over a year right up to the time I had my operation. My surgeon was frankly amazed that I was still walking, my hip was in such bad condition. In fact I was playing golf most week-ends and keeping pretty active. After my op, I was able to use EFT to control some of the post operative pain and it was a great help in my recovery. Obviously I still use EFT as an alternative to pain killers.
Oddly enough, even though we did not cover this in our session, I have also found tapping to be very helpful with several other issues. Most notably, it often helps me to get to sleep and I sometimes use it to help me cope with stress.
I would have no hesitation in recommending to anybody with an open mind that they try using EFT to help with pain control and with other stress-related problems like sleeplessness." www.waterland.co.uk
