Do you suffer from chronic pain? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, more than 100 million Americans deal with this life-changing issue every day. And if you’re like most of them, you’ve tried all the normal solutions”: doctors, injections, medications, and surgeries. While these all have a place in healing, they have fallen short in dealing with the pain epidemic. So what can you do?
In The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief, Nick Ortner presents a startling alternative. He lays out a step-by-step plan that teaches you how to use tapping, or EFT (emotional freedom techniques), to reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Looking at the scientific research surrounding pain, stress, and tapping, he opens your eyes to just how powerful tapping can be, and then outlines tips and techniques to address pain in both the short and long term.
Nick guides you on a journey that begins on the surface—tapping to address the pain itself—and moves to the deeper issues that often affect pain. With easy-to-follow tapping scripts and exercises, Nick helps you heal the emotional pain and underlying beliefs that often keep people stuck.
He also addresses topics that you may not think of as associated with chronic pain, such as:
- Creating personal boundaries
- Dealing with toxic relationships
- Clearing resistance to change
- Understanding the power of a diagnosis
- Working through anger
There are many ways the brain and body can create, increase, and prolong pain. After reading this book, you’ll not only understand what’s causing your pain but also how to achieve complete and lasting relief. But let’s face it; this is about more than just pain relief. It’s about empowering yourself to take back your body in order to live the life you want.
So why does tapping work so well to relieve pain? As I have come to realize, chronic, unremitting pain is often tied to unresolved emotional issues. As you’ll see in this book, the current medical literature supports this. We know the physical pain is real, but the physiological mechanisms that magnify and perpetuate it are exaggerated by the presence of unresolved negative emotions, which may be the result of experiences far in your past or more recent emotional turmoil. Let me explain.
On the physiological plane, there are typically two main mechanisms involved in chronic pain. First, there is chronic tension and spasm of the muscles. As these muscles tense up, there is less blood supply and lower oxygen levels in the muscle tissue, and that causes a great deal of pain. The second physiological mechanism causing chronic pain is hypersensitivity of the nerves. When people are in a chronic fight-or-flight state, stress hormones are released, and those hormones have a huge influence in sensitizing nerves. When the nerves are sensitized, everything just hurts more. The way that we think and feel about our pain can also influence the sensitization of nerves because our general anxiety leads to the release of more stress hormones, and the cycle perpetuates.
Tapping is so effective at relieving chronic pain because it helps patients release the unresolved emotions that are keeping the body in a stressed-out state. By tapping to remove the negative emotional charge from specific events and other past and current issues, the brain gets the message that it is safe to relax tense muscles and lessen nerve sensitivity. That’s when the body can heal itself—of chronic pain and other symptoms as well. Tapping is a game changer when it comes to getting relief from chronic pain, and Nick has such a wonderful way of explaining complex topics very simply and in plain English that I’m certain many will find the help they’re looking for.
This book leads you through a powerful, effective process to relieve chronic pain for good. I urge you to dive into this process, however “weird” it may seem at first, with your full commitment. It targets what is often the true source of your pain—your emotions, your stress, your traumas. Once you release those, your body’s innate ability to heal itself will take over. Like thousands of others, you’ll be blown away by the pain-relief results you experience.
