Last week I told you about the exciting changes going on in my life, inspiring an introductory offer of $45/hour for August and September. Today, I’d like to tell you a little bit about how EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping Healed My Back!
When I was 15 years old, my lower back problems began. I was in a lot of pain, struggling with keeping up with Volleyball and other sports. Really, everything hurt, even rolling over in bed.
I ended up having major back surgery that year. Yes, I was very young to have back surgery. I tried to put on my best teenage front, but I can still recall how scared I was. Despite the surgery, my back pain continued for 10 years, at times rendering me unable to get out of bed. That was when my Father-in-Law (then my boyfriend’s dad) gave me a book about The Mind-Body Connection and everything changed thanks to the concepts in that book.
I had thought that my back problems were from genetic abnormalities and injuries, physical things. I began to realize that there was a very real and palpable emotional component to my pain that I had never considered before. What a concept!
Let’s fast forward through a few years of awkwardly trying to find a way to harness the mind-body connection to help me to heal my back (and whatever other pain du jour came my way). That was when I discovered EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping. This simple and effective tool gave me the key to Heal My Back.
I Tapped on my physical symptoms; I Tapped on my stress, on my anxiety, on past traumatic events, on my genetic disposition to having a bad back (since my dad had a bad back, too), on the trauma of the surgery, on the lost decade of pain, and anything else that came up. It was tremendous! My back pain went away!!!
Every now and again, my back pain tries to creep back into my life. I have to admit, that is irritating, to say the least. But now, thank goodness, I have the tools I need to handle the pain quickly and effectively so that I don’t need to suffer for any longer than necessary. I like that I don’t need pain meds or contraptions. The healing is right at my fingertips!!! It’s awesome!!!
Thank you for reading my story. If you or someone you know has back problems, please tell them about EFT and encourage them to try it. It may be just the thing they need to turn things around. I do Phone and Skype sessions for those that are unable to come into the office.
