These are real experiences of real clients. I have the names and phone numbers of these clients on file; they are willing to discuss their experiences with anyone interested.
FREEDOM FROM PAIN
I have had back pain radiating to my left hip and sometimes down my leg. My MRI shows lumbar degenerative discs and left hip calcifications. I've had ultra sound of the hip, special exercises, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and then trammel back injections. None of this got rid of pain. I'm allergic to many pain and all arthritis types of medicines. The day I did EFT, with you, the pain left my back and stayed away for 6 days. At that time, my Chiropractor adjusted me, and I was back into pain. The next day I did EFT on my own, for the back pain, and have been pain free since. I went to the movies and was able to sit 3 hrs without getting up and then got up with no stiffness. I felt like I was 30 again, but I will be 63 next month. I'm working through the Personal Peace Procedure, which you assigned. I feel more energetic everyday.
Thanks so much for doing this work. Linda
THIS GIFT TO HEAL MYSELF
As for my experience with EFT…I can’t even put into words how much this technique has helped me. I came to you last year soon after moving to Tucson. I was having anxiety and had never experienced anything like this before. Moving to a new place, away from the home that I loved, and quitting the job that I loved to follow…my love and future husband, probably was the cause of this anxiety.
I came to you because I didn’t feel that a pill was the answer to my problems. I never had anxiety before, and never lived on medication before, and was not about to start. One session of EFT last December did the trick! From that day forward I have been anxiety free. I was able to relax and enjoy my new home and focus 100% on my family and myself. I was able to look for jobs without becoming discouraged, and if it didn’t work out then it didn’t work out. Since then I have found a wonderful job and am getting married this December!
Thank you, Mary, for giving me this gift to heal myself! Lisa
I can't thank you enough for the transformation you have given me! I went home and was able to help myself, my husband (with his TMJ) and even my daughter, over the phone, tonight. This is truly a gift from God and you are one of His angels because you are such a gentle teacher!
I'm telling anyone and everyone about EFT, and I'm using it every day for myself. As I walk around my pool in the morning as part of my daily exercise, I'm tapping away different thoughts that may be detrimental to my health in any way.
I tapped away
my desire to eat after dinner. I tapped away my writer's block. I realized
that my fear of success came from my fear of being rejected, humiliated
or embarrassed about my writing. Once I understood that, I started tapping
away all those issues. After the tapping session, within minutes, words
were flowing onto the pad for a complete first chapter...until I went to
sleep and came up with more ideas for it! It is now complete and I've even
begun Chapter 2. I give all of the credit to you and EFT.
BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS AT SCHOOL
Due to pretty serious behavior problems at kindergarten and first grade,
I took my daughter to see 2 counselors, a psychologists and a psychiatrist
over a period of a year. By six years of age, she had been diagnosed
with ADHD and Bipolar Disorder.
TRAUMATIC STRESS AND PAIN
One of my trainees shared her client's experience with me. A male Holocaust survivor came to her for relief from the traumatic stress and pain resulting from the things he experienced in Germany during the Holocaust. She tapped with him on his memories. He seemed not to be benefited. He referred to the tapping they did as, "this nonsense". However, two weeks later, she ran into him in the health food store. He had a big smile on his face and told her, very happily, "That 'nonsense' we did in your office really worked! I haven't had any more pain since that day. I am ready to lead a good life, now, but I don't know how to go about it." (Related December, 1998.)
DEPRESSION and SPORTS PERFORMANCE
"The first time I used EFT, the depression and sadness I had lived with all my life disappeared. A simple process of tapping on specific points accomplished what a wide variety of anti-depressants could not. My tennis game also received a boost from EFT, helping me become more relaxed, confident, and self-accepting on the courts. It's been great to have my teammates comment on how my game has improved." Susan H. (treated on Oct. 2nd and followed up on Dec. 3rd, 1999)
PHOBIA OF SPIDERS
"I have had a severe phobia of spiders all my life. As a child I could not even bear to look at a picture of one. When Mary told me she could help me be rid of this fear I was skeptical. However, since they often appeared where I worked, I agreed to let her try.
"When Mary began the Thought Field Therapy with me, she asked me to rank the level of my fear on a scale of 1-10. I stated it was a 12! By the time we finished, maybe five minutes later, my fear was 0.
"Several months later I encountered a spider of a size that would previously have sent me from the room. It was in a doorway. I walked through the doorway, did a brief task, and returned. I got a cup, scooped the spider up, and put him outside. The whole time my fear level remained at 0. Even when I first encountered it, there was just a brief startle reaction of about level 1.
"This really works, and I would recommend it to anyone. It can only improve the quality of your life." Lois S. (treated June 1997 and followed up March 1998)
CHRONIC ANGER AND RAGE
"It would not be an overstatement to say, for all of my life, periodic outbursts of anger and rage crippled relations with many people and took a severe toll on me and those closest to me. Psychiatric and psychological treatments were not terribly successful.
"Several hours of intensive work with Mary Stafford on this issue brought
a remarkable change. The anger is just no longer there. The uncontrolled
rage simply doesn't occur. The change was quick, painless and seems permanent.
I am happy. Those around me are grateful. My chronic back pain of the last
several years, another and probably related problem, has also disappeared."
B. (treated on Nov. 5, 1999 and followed up on Dec. 4, 1999)
