We all have been told since childhood that physical pain takes place in the body. Whenever we scraped our elbows or bruised our knees during our childhood, parents provided us with quick physical relief by applying bandages on the wounds or icing the affected area. We developed this idea early on that to get pain relief, we must treat the body.
But what if you’ve already tried several methods and the pain still doesn’t go away? What are you supposed to do in such instances? Millions of people not just in the States but all over the world continue to experience chronic pain even after trying all the conventional methods such as physical therapy, medicines, and surgery. The question arises if treating the physical body doesn’t bring pain relief then what will?
Many pieces of research have pointed out that chronic pain is associated with emotions. Studies have found that people who are suffering from fibromyalgia experience even more pain if they harbor emotions of anger and sadness within them. It has also been observed that behavioral cognitive therapy assists in bringing down fatigue and pain in people who clearly expressed their emotions in the therapy. Another study showed that feelings of romantic love naturally help in reducing pain in people.
Even after these findings, people with chronic pain are still treated with conventional methods which aren’t only expensive but ineffective as well. These treatments provide patients with temporary relief only. The method that can provide long-lasting relief from pain is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
It was Dr. Roger Callahan who first came up with TFT some 30 years ago. The technique was later on popularized and refined by Gary Craig and recast into a simplified version called EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT is a technique in which a person taps on endpoints of the body’s energy meridians while stating emotionally-charged phrases. You need to bring the negative emotions to the surface, tap on them, and remove them from your system. A qualified EFT coach can help you do this technique properly.
With the help of a coach, you will first identify the feeling of sadness, frustration, anger, or whatever it is behind your physical pain. Then you will tap on that feeling by lightly thumping on your energy meridian points such as collarbone, forehead, the temple as you clearly address your emotions and follow a protocol that releases these emotions. This method can also be used to change negative and troubling beliefs that have existed for many years.
