EFT – Solution For Lower Back Pain

Not only in Uk, but in many other countries, many employees take a day off sick because of lower back pain. It’s very popular.


The most common cause of back pain is musculo-skeletal in nature. This has to do with how the bones, muscles and ligaments in the back are working together. For example, if any of the muscles are too tense, this can be felt as pain.


After a medical check-up to make sure no other issues are the problem, you are probably given pain-killers, recommended a manipulation technique like chiropractic or massage therapy, or perhaps physiotherapy and remedial exercise. But some people keep getting the lower back pain, keep going to the doctor, the physiotherapist, the massage therapist and so on; only to end up with that debilitating back pain yet again. This is when your doctor may recommend pain management techniques.


EFT, or Tapping, is a relatively new technique that has released many a lower back pain with astounding success. Most doctors, medical, and alternative practitioners are not aware of EFT as yet; although some of the more enlightened ones use it as part of their normal practice. Amongst its fans are Inci Irkin, MD, Eric Robins, MD and Deepak Chopra, MD.


In terms of energy healing, a chronic or recurring pain is due to an energy disruption. One of the most common causes of energy disruption is negative emotion. Or in EFT terms, the cause of all negative emotion is an energy disruption. I personally find that the word “emotion” is not just a psychological feeling but a sign from our mindbody. For example, when we feel joy, all is well. Conversely, when we feel fear, this is a warning to us to escape harm. Similarly, when we feel anger, this helps us to act in order to defend ourselves. Taking it a little further, sometimes it may not feel safe to have these emotions. Or maybe we have them but there is nothing we can do about them. For example, we may be angry but unable to act any further to protect ourselves. This excess negative emotion can collect in your body as an energy disruption. If your energy, or chi, is misaligned, it will manifest in the weakest part of your body. And once your lower back becomes weakened, through an accident or by normal wear and tear, this area becomes a weak part of your body. So if you have a structural weakness of any kind in your lower back, then you can get lower back pain when your energy is disrupted. EFT can release the energy disruption, thereby relaxing those previously-tense lower back muscles. Tension is both a psychological and physical state. EFT is very good at releasing tension.


Most people associate EFT with purely emotional issues and may be surprised to find emotions stored in their back. However, there comes a time when the pain is greater than the disbelief. And then you are ready to try almost anything!


I find that emotions stored in the lower back include:


Lack of support
Being unable to let go of an issue (often long-forgotten)
Insecurity or a feeling that one does not belong
A painful memory involving that area of the body
For example, Sharon came to see me with a lower back pain of magnitude 7 out of 10. This was a constant in her life since she had a car accident four years previously. After a few minutes of EFT, we released this memory from her lower back, getting it down to zero. We did EFT for:
The pain in her lower back
The accident
Her anger towards the other driver

Sharon then felt totally peaceful with that memory and was able to move on. And she was still free of this pain when I met her about a year later.


EFT is a very versatile tool literally at your fingertips. We stimulate certain acupressure points whilst repeating specially-targeted phrases. And do not worry about having to access points yourself on your back. The EFT points tend to be on the face, under the neck, and on the side of the body; all very easy to access yourself. You can learn EFT for free online, attend a workshop, or have a session with an experienced practitioner in-person or conveniently by phone. And your lower back pain can finally be released.
