How to Release Pain with EFT Tapping

After reading Nick Ortner’s book The Tapping Solution, I became passionate about tapping and started to apply the technique to every area of my life.

What is tapping?

Tapping, otherwise known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is a psychological acupressure technique that supports your emotional and physical health. By tapping on specific energy meridians on your body, you can release ancient fears, limiting beliefs, negative patterns and even physical pain.

In today’s video we’re going to tap on pain. We all are affected by physical pain in different ways. Whether it’s a daily neck ache from hunching over a laptop, PMS cramps or chronic pain from an injury, tapping can help you release it.

How tapping on pain works

Sometimes our obsession over physical pain stems from an emotion. Our emotions trigger shifts in our body’s delicate balance of hormones and neurotransmitters. Positive emotions support our health, while negative emotions stimulate stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol.

Negative emotions are also a major contributor to pain. Tapping on your pain allows you to release your emotional attachment to it, thereby relieving the physical discomfort as well. If it sounds powerful, that’s because it is!

When you watch this video, repeat each phrase I say while tapping on the different meridians specified. Just follow my lead and expect miracles!

  1. I went from a 10+ (I got knocked off a horse and extremely sore…nothing broken) I was unable to breathe without pain. Afterwards, I am a REAL 3 or 4! Now I can start moving more!

  2. I had a partial foot amputation a month ago and am unable to sleep due to grabbing the sheets, screaming out for Jesus, battlefield pain, described as neuropathic pain. Do you have any specific advice for this kind of wrenching, debilitating pain? Thanks.

  3. Thank you. I have been reading and watching many podcasts about EFT but will rewatch you multiple times per day. You really get it!!

  4. I felt my lower back loosening almost immediately. I started at a 9/10 and now I’m about a 6… I’ll know for sure where I stand when I try to do dishes or laundry. I will definitely do this for a longer period of time.

    Thank you so much for posting this Gabby!!

    1. You are welcome Alicia. You can return to these practices as often as you need to. Sending healing love your way xo

  5. Hi Gabby,
    I definitely felt a huge change in the pain level of both knee’s, hip’s and left elbow but my right elbow is still somewhat painfull. I plan to do some more tapping later for my right elbow.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Gabby I have a pressure like pain in my chest , tried the technique for the first time. Felt slightly better

      1. I’m grateful that these spiritual tools are serving you. Please know that they are not a substitute for medical advice. If you continue to feel pressure and or pain, please reach out to your primary care provider to rule out any serious issues or go to the nearest emergency room if the pain gets worse.

  6. I have severe fibromyalgia and I think my pain went from a 10 to maybe an 8 after watching your session. Thank you. I will tune in again.

    1. Amazing, Linda. Hopefully with continued practice the combination of EFT and your medical treatment can get you down to a 2 or lower! xoxo

    1. Hi Jane. Glad these spiritual tools are supporting you. If you are experiencing physical symptoms, please check in with your physician, to rule out any serious issues. xo

  7. I am not a mainstream fan of Gabby’s but her tapping works. I was a 10 in terms of emotional pain, physical pain, and stress. Now I’m a 9. For me that’s phenomenal — here I am in terrible pain — I wake up very upset my jaw I can feel the anger and the hurt the pain the stress in my face, neck, shoulders, left arm and to sit with the Gabby video and go through the stress or now the pain tapping gives me some relief and I can try again and again rather than lay in bed or sit in this terrible state .

    I tell myself if I have to do some chores or I just don’t feel like typing just listen to her and just imagine I’m tapping even that is better than laying there upset or moving around my home doing chores upset.

    I also created my own technique for returning the pain to people who are not willing to change and be decent or ethical or empathetic so I try that as well that I don’t have to carry their evil and they’re bad in my body and my mind in my spirit in my body.

    I always bought Gabby books when they came out and I bought the audio thing for me is an offense is the voice I wish it was softer and she’s grown softer but I still think there’s something it just bothers me however she is great there’s no doubt about it and for me to just have even a little relief is huge so thanks and gratitude.

    I was assaulted and violated at the doctors in SoHo new York city and I’m on year Seven no justice and it’s a lot to cope with

  8. Hi gabby! Went from a 7 to a 4 in just that quick span. My pain is in the same areas you discussed so this was a perfect video and your tone is always so calming. I’m so grateful for you
