How To Use EFT For Menorrhagia?
EFT Tapping For Menorrhagia
Menorrhagia is a condition where women of reproductive age suffer heavy bleeding. Emotions such as worry and stress worsen the blood flow. Emotional Freedom Tapping techniques prove effective in dealing with Menorrhagia and that is exactly what we will be delving deeper into in this blog.
Difficult pasts and anxieties have always had a deep-rooted connection. No matter what, bad past experiences tend to shoot up worry and anxieties in a jiffy.
Last month, a woman approached me. Stress was written all over her face.
I was scared to see her like that. I could somehow sense that she was feeling a mix of worry and frustration.
When I asked her about the underlying cause, she could pretty much explain the root cause.
She was going through a terrible time. Imagine yourself profusely bleeding not just for a single week, but for 45 days in a row. This was happening to her in episodes.
Having faced this for months, her medications were no longer working. The stabbing pain in her lower abdomen would not allow her to get out of bed all day.
She was at a stage where her future fear story could soon be linked to the mere mention of blood. It had become a living nightmare for her.
When I heard her story, one thing was clear. Her worries were worsening the situation. Pain causes inconvenience both in one's personal and professional life.
When the pain becomes persistent, it often disrupts one’s peace of mind and causes both frustration and exhaustion.
The level of pain varies on an individual basis, and so the direction that you take to relieve yourself from it will be different too.
My client wanted to try out EFT therapy. Let’s see if her decision to resort to Emotional Freedom Techniques will help her overcome her worries attached to Menorrhagia.
What is Menorrhagia?
Let’s face it, periods are never fun! Despite the biological reason for having them, one despises everything about them: Cramps, mood swings, cravings, etc.
What if I tell you that this normal process of bleeding for 3-7 days doubles? So that means that you will be bleeding for an average of 10 days. This is what a period getting heavier means and we name it ‘heavy bleeding.’ (1)
There is no exact amount of blood that clarifies whether you are bleeding normally or heavily. However, we do know what periods are like on an average.
On average, a woman loses up to 80ml blood every month, so anything above that standard is classified as heavy bleeding. This condition of heavy menstrual flow with severe cramps is known as Menorrhagia. (2)
Medical statistics suggest that it is a common problem in women and is often caused by either hormonal imbalances or problems associated with the uterus.
The majority of women with this disease have been medically diagnosed and are on medications. It's always a good idea to consult your physician and be sure of the symptoms. However, no diagnosis comes with a guarantee of 100% relief.
Since this type of issue is quite common, EFT Tapping for Menorrhagia can be very effective.
In this technique, your body releases fewer stress hormones, thereby making you feel calm. Your relaxed state of mind is slowly restored.
When Menorrhagia is left untreated, uneasiness prevails and lasts much longer, making it difficult for you to function normally.
It becomes impossible to relax, and further, the heavy periods drain both your mind and the body.
Act before it reduces your vitality, disrupts your sleep, and exhausts your body.
What Causes Menorrhagia?
There are three main causes of Menorrhagia, namely:
- Uterine-related Problems
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Other Disorders or Illness
Although not everyone with Menorrhagia will have the same root cause, the majority will relate to the below mentioned list of possible causes:
Signs and Symptoms
Let’s answer the question nagging at the back of your head, “How do I identify Menorrhagia?”
For most women, there is no abnormality with the uterus (womb). They find none of the changes within their body that we discussed above. So, how do you know if you have Menorrhagia?
If you find the following points true for your body, you must consult a medical practitioner and get tested (6):
- A menstrual flow soaking through one or more pads/tampons every hour for several hours in a row.
- Bleeding between periods, or facing irregular bleeding.
- Doubling up on pads to control your menstrual flow.
- Having to change pads or tampons during the night due to heavier flow.
- A menstrual cycle that lasts more than 7 days.
- Having a menstrual flow with blood clots larger than the size of a quarter.
- Heavy menstrual flow-restricting daily activities.
- Vaginal Discharge.
- Constant pain in the lower part of the stomach during your periods.
- Symptoms of anaemia, such as tiredness, fatigue, or shortness of breath.
Pain from Menorrhagia may be continuous, or it may start and stop frequently, or it may occur only under some conditions. It may occur suddenly and last for a short period. Or it may develop slowly and last for several months or years.
When the doctor is aware of your medical history and period cycle, they'll suggest a diagnosis of menorrhagia with a pelvic exam, ultrasound, pap test, or sometimes a biopsy.
Based on personal preferences, treatment for menorrhagia includes hormones or other medicines, and procedures to treat the uterine lining or remove the uterus.
There’s another effective method to treat menorrhagia: Emotional Freedom Techniques Therapy! This is one of the most-used therapeutic treatments established by Gary Craig in 1993.
For those new to EFT, it is a Tapping Therapy that combines tapping on acupressure points while speaking statements out loud to accept situations. As we explore EFT for ourselves, we can become more aware of our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping) is clinically proven to lower stress, tension, anxiety, and past-trauma to enable health, happiness and vitality.
What are the two aspects of EFT Tapping?
Emotional Freedom Technique is a form of alternative therapy method involving intentionally tapping gently with fingertips on acupuncture meridian end-points while speaking out statements founded in truth.
EFT or "Tapping" is an easy-to-learn, quick technique that anyone can use with a little guidance.
It allows you to change the way you respond to uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and troubling memories. For example, the tension associated with profuse bleeding.
Whether done alone or together with an experienced practitioner, EFT brings about surprising—and lasting—relief. Hence, we closely work on uncovering troubling memories and uncomfortable thoughts.
Common meridian points used in EFT are:
- Karate chop point on the hand
- Under the nose
- Under the arm
Soon with EFT tapping, a change in energy is experienced and you start recovering from the troubles you faced initially.
Furthermore, EFT Tapping involves two primary aspects — talk and touch.
EFT's primary element is communication. Tapping, like many other therapies and healing modalities, is a form of communication.
The value of talking in therapy can be gauged by the fact that a branch of psychotherapy called Talk Therapy was developed on it.
Talking is an essential part of psychotherapy, which is why we also call it Talk Therapy. It's a mode of communication between the therapist and the distressed individual. Talking about emotions and feelings can actually help shift perspectives and even make you feel differently.
Techniques like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) also involve this aspect of talk in their practice. (7)
One of the five love languages, touch is a necessary aspect of EFT Tapping.
Touch can be an extremely important factor in healing as it communicates care, affection, and presence—all of which a troubled person needs.
Research shows that babies who are touched and held soothingly are less likely to face psychological challenges later in life, than the babies who did not receive enough or any safe touch.
EFT Tapping, as the name suggests, involves tapping on specific points on the body known as Tapping points.
EFT Tapping For MENORRHAGIA
It’s time we look at the EFT tapping directions and Inner Child Matrix for Menorrhagia that will help you accept yourself and overcome emotions linked closely with Menorrhagia.
Whether you are a patient yourself, or healing a client, you can use the following steps:
I was asked this question last week, "Will I be falsely convincing myself when tapping on statements?" It's a question I've heard many times before.
EFT tapping and repeating a few sentences does not mean that you are trying to convince yourself. Neither does it bound you to believe in false affirmations.
It simply means that first, you're allowing yourself to confront feelings of pain and pessimism, and secondly, dealing with them by accepting and validating them.
In other words, EFT allows your body’s energy to tune itself into a more positive flow. Who wouldn’t wish for a positive flow to last for a really long time?
A combination of both tapping directions and Inner Child Matrix helped my client with Menorrhagia build the strength needed to deal with the distress caused by prolonged bleeding.
Hence, EFT tapping is indeed an amazing tool to help you deal with pain and worry associated with Menorrhagia.
