EFT tapping for emotional pain

In this blog, you will learn how to heal emotional pain with EFT Tapping technique.

Are you carrying any emotional pain from a past incident? Maybe for so long that it feels like it has become a part of your being?

But it isn’t! 

Emotional pain and hurt often tends to not only stay, but at times grows as you continuously replay it in your head, each time worse than before.  

You could hold on to this pain for years and years, without realising what it might be doing to your general well-being. 

And even if you try, it is not the easiest task to let go of pain. 

So, what’s the way out? 

Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, work by clearing such emotional blockages and baggage, leading to an overall improvement in your physical, mental, as well as emotional health. 

A corporate trainer and consultant, Sreekumar Rajgopalan, had been holding on to emotional pain for 28 years!  

He opted to go for EFT training.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT): EFT Tapping for healing Emotional Pain.

Step 1:

First use EFT Tapping on what it feels like to feel the pain

Explore the physical sensations in the body associated with the pain and use the physical tension tapping process to reduce the sensations.

Then use the EFT Tapping Points Process as mentioned below. 


To get started, begin by investigating the physical nature of pain. 

Connect with the pain and notice where you feel it in the body. Then use the EFT Tapping for Physical Tension to clear the surface feelings and feel calmer. 

Briefly, you can begin by asking yourself the following questions to explore further:

  • Where in the body do you experience the pain?
  • What is the colour, texture, size, shape of the pain in the body?
  • What are the sensations like? For example rough or smooth?


Measure the level of pain by asking: 

"What number is the pain at, where 10 is really high and 1 is not high at all?" Just go with whatever comes up spontaneously, without thinking too much about it. 


Begin by tapping on the Karate Chop or side of the hand EFT Tapping points: 

"Even though I feel the pain and I feel it in my [part of the body where there is pain] and it's at a number 6 and it's red in colour and it feels rough, I deeply and completely love and accept myself." (Repeat 3 times).


Tap on the facial and upper body EFT Tapping points using these phrases:

  • Eyebrow: This pain...
  • side Of the Eye: So painful...
  • Under the eye: Pain in my chest..
  • Under the nose: It's a red colour...
  • Chin: At a number 6...
  • Collarbone: So rough...
  • Under the arm: This pain...
  • Thumb: I feel it in my stomach...
  • Index Finger: So painful...
  • Middle Finger: Really painful...
  • Little Finger: The colour red...


Close the sequence by coming back to the EFT Karate Chop Tapping points and repeat once: 

"Even though I feel the pain, and I feel it in my chest and it's at a number 6 and it's red in colour and it feels rough, I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway."



Take a gentle breath in and out and take a sip of water.



At the end of the EFT Tapping , you can ask yourself the following questions:

  • What number is the pain at now?
  • What happened?
  • How does it make you feel?

You can repeat this process by going back to Step 1 if you feel like the number could come down a little more.

Step 2:

Discover past experiences of feeling painful and clear them 

Explore memories related to the pain you felt and use the Tell the Story & the Movie Technique to clear it. 

To uncover the memories linked to the symptoms of emotional pain, you can ask questions like:

  • When have you felt these sensations before?
  • What do these sensations remind you of?
  • When did the sensations start? What happened?
  • Was there ever a time when you did not experience these symptoms?
  • What can trigger the symptoms?

Identify past events linked to the feeling of this pain and resolve it with the help of tapping therapy.

You can ask the following questions:

  • When have you felt the pain before?
  • What happens to trigger the pain?
  • Who or what triggers the feeling of pain?

These questions will identify your past experiences associated with the pain. 

Step 3:

Explore any limiting beliefs that prevented you from being pain-free

Limiting beliefs are thoughts that can be conscious or unconscious and can end up becoming responsible for self-sabotage, procrastination and low self-esteem, in an individual.

For pain, first uncover the limiting beliefs which can either be at the surface level or associated with the deeper root memories. Then shift them from stressful to empowering. For example, 

  •  “Something bad is going to happen.” to “Everything is going to be OK."
  • "It is not safe." to "I am safe now."

Step 4:

Close with positive EFT Tapping for healing emotional pain:

Examples of a positive tapping sequence might be:

  • “Even though I felt painful, now, I am open to feeling pain free.”
  • “Even though I was living with this pain for many months, now, I open myself to the possibility of being pain free."
