EFT Tapping For Pain: Transforming Your Wellbeing
We often associate physical pain with the body. While it's true that pain could be a symptom of something wrong with your body, that's not always the case. In this blog, you will learn about different types of pain and how to use EFT Tapping for pain relief.
All of us have suffered from some type of pain, whether it was due to an injury or another ailment. As much as we'd like to avoid or deny the existence of it, we can't help but succumb to this unpleasant, uncomfortable, and distressing feeling that tells us that something is wrong.
"Pain is such an uncomfortable feeling that even a tiny amount of it is enough to ruin your enjoyment."
TYPES OF PAIN AND THEIR CAUSES
When you experience pain physically, it may be continuous, may start and stop frequently, or it may occur only under some conditions. It may occur suddenly and last for a short period of time. Or it may develop gradually and last over several months or years.
Pain may be specific to a particular part of the body, or it may be generalised, such as the overall body aches associated with the flu.
The different types of physical pain are listed below (1):
- Acute Pain
- Chronic Pain
- Nociceptive Pain
- Neuropathic Pain
- Functional Pain
Traditional solutions for pain relief completely miss considering the underlying causes of pain. Identifying the specific type of pain helps in developing an effective treatment plan.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) tapping is suggested as a clinically proven method to reduce stress, tension, anxiety, and past trauma to promote overall health and well-being.
HOW DOES EFT TAPPING HELP IN HEALING CHRONIC PAIN?
While all of our physical pain problems can be solved or aided by the usage of various medically prescribed drugs and therapies, we must also keep in mind that those methods may only provide temporary relief and turn out to be harmful to us in the long run.
In order to avoid all of this, and to address the issue from its root cause, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) happens to be a very powerful alternative healing therapy to heal any sort of physical or mental pain that people usually experience.
EFT Tapping is highly effective in relieving chronic pain by stimulating certain meridian points because it helps people release the unresolved negative emotions that are keeping the body in a stressed state.
By tapping to lift the negative emotional charge from specific events and other past and current issues, the brain learns that it is safe to relax tense muscles and lessen nerve sensitivity. That's when the body can heal itself (2).
EFT aims to find out the root cause of your pain, your emotions, your stress, and your traumas. Once you work on those and release the emotional distress linked with your pain, your body automatically begins to heal itself.

EVIDENCES PROVING THE EFFICACY OF EFT TAPPING
A pilot study was conducted to assess the effects of Emotional Freedom Techniques on the reduction of pain in adults. In this study, 50 adults with chronic pain participated in a 3-day workshop to learn how to use EFT (3).
The Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) and the Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) were used to measure pain immediately before and after treatment and at 1-month and 6-month follow-ups.
Significant reductions were found in each of the factors of PCS. On the MPI, significant improvements were marked in pain severity, interference, life control, affective distress, and dysfunctional composite.
At 6-month follow-up, reductions were maintained on the PCS but only on one factor for the MPI.
Findings suggest that EFT provides immediate relief by reducing the severity of pain while also improving participants' ability to live with their pain.
Although reductions in pain severity were observed at 1-month follow-up but not sustained in the long-term, participants continued to report an improved sense of control and ability to cope with their chronic pain.
Yet another study was conducted to examine the efficacy of Emotional Freedom Techniques in reducing pain perception, increasing acceptance, coping ability, and health-related quality of life in people suffering from fibromyalgia (4).
An eight-week online EFT treatment program was administered to 86 women, who were on sick leave for at least 3 months.
As a result, significant improvements were observed in the treatment group for variables such as pain, anxiety, depression, performance problems, and stress symptoms.
One of our participants, Dr Rajesh CM healed his back pain completely after attending EFT training and now routinely helps his patients heal from body pain with results in only a single sitting.
Here's what he has to say: "I healed my back pain in 17 minutes and now help others. After attending EFT Training for pain relief with Vitality Living College, I became even more powerful and effective in my private practice.
I now have 5 to 6 patients daily and every patient is satisfied through EFT Tapping.
"For any kind of persistent pain, for example in the knee, back, or head I am getting good results. The best part is, in a single sitting my patients get more than 70% and sometimes 100% pain relief. In my own case before attending EFT Training, I used to have severe back pain and after attending the EFT Training session it has gone completely."
When individuals decide to resort to the Emotional Freedom Technique, they not only get rid of their pain but also look at life in a more positive way, which provides them with the strength to deal with any other mental or physical distress that comes their way.
In a nutshell, EFT is a very powerful and effective tool for relieving any kind of physical or mental pain and discomfort. This technique has also proven to be effective when it comes to chronic pain.
EFT has provided relief to thousands of people who have been suffering for years. If you or someone you know is experiencing pain and unable to heal from it, EFT Tapping might be the solution you're looking for.
