MDs Use New Drug-Free Acupressure Technique to Relieve Chronic and Acute Pain, Often in Minutes

Share Article

Conventional medicine treats pain with symptom-suppressing drugs, but drugs can be ineffective, addictive, or have side effects. Now medical experts say that pain’s underlying causes are often emotional rather than physical, and many health care practitioners use a simple acupressure technique called EFT to relieve it.

An estimated 70 million Americans are affected by chronic pain. This pain, which can last for months or years, interferes with every aspect of their lives, including work, travel, home, and hobbies. Chronic pain contributes to a host of secondary problems, such as depression, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety, which are themselves health risks. Conventional physicians treat pain with powerful prescription drugs, electrical stimulation, nerve blocks, and other procedures, but these treatments don’t always work and they can have serious side effects. Worse, none of them cure pain; they only suppress or manage symptoms.

“That’s because conventional treatments don’t address chronic pain’s underlying causes,” says Texas emergency room physician Thomas Flowers, D.O. “The very best way I know to reduce or eliminate chronic pain is with an acupressure tapping technique called EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT usually works within a few minutes, and it’s easy to learn and easy to use. In fact, anyone can do it.” The procedure is explained in a free manual that can be downloaded from

Chronic pain’s true cause, says Dr. Flowers, is a disruption of the body’s energy system caused by stored trauma, unhappy memories, or toxic emotions. Gentle fingertip tapping on key acupuncture points combined with focused thought corrects the disruption, allows energy to flow normally, and alleviates symptoms all at the same time.

“I’ve been privileged to use EFT to significantly improve symptoms such as migraine headaches and chronic neck and back pain,” he says. “I even used it to relieve the pain of a broken arm and the acute pain experienced by a woman the day after she had four teeth extracted.”

EFT practitioners around the world estimate that more than half of those who try it for chronic pain experience significant relief, often within minutes. If the pain returns, they can tap it away again, or if they successfully address the situation’s core issues, the pain may disappear permanently.

EFT was originally designed to treat psychological problems such as fear, anxiety, and phobias, but its practitioners soon discovered its ability to relieve all types of pain. Pain relief is now a leading application of EFT.

Over 300,000 -- including thousands of health care practitioners -- have downloaded EFT’s free manual from
and an additional 10,000 download it every month. The manual is available in nine languages, and EFT practitioners around the world, especially in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia, teach EFT classes and work with clients.
