EFT For Pain After Cancer Surgery
EFT does not cure cancer; but EFT can help cancer patients in so many different ways to feel better, feel stronger and have a different experience altogether as they move through the various phases of their treatments.
This important EFT case story by Denise Jacques shows that EFT practitioners need not be afraid of working with cancer patients and that wonderful, positive, beneficial results occur when we address the energy system with EFT.

EFT For Pain After Cancer Operation
by Denise Jacques
Joseph came to me to see if EFT could help with debilitating on-going pain and discomfort from major surgery for cancer 4 months ago. He had since discovered that he had developed secondary tumours in his liver.
Joseph is a regular client of mine; finds EFT very helpful but has not yet worked on physical pain with me. Joseph was in his late 50s and had never experienced anything but minor health problems prior to his becoming jaundiced 5 months ago. Although he had dealt with the entire situation extremely well, it was a shocking experience for him and he was currently undergoing chemotherapy.
After this round I asked Joseph if his experience of the pain had changed and he said because of the tumours in his liver in around about the same area, he was a little bit worried if the pain was just about the scar healing. I let Joseph know that it was extremely positive that he was acknowledging this very important aspect of how he felt about the pain and we tapped a second round to ‘this pain is tight, on-going and worrying’. Joseph yawned constantly during the round and I felt a strong sense of something releasing; afterwards in assessing his pain, he discovered that he no longer felt worried that the pain was anything other than his scar. He found it amazing that he could get rid of his worry so completely in only one round of tapping and we tapped a further round to ‘this pain is tight and ongoing’.
Joseph said his stomach felt more comfortable and his SUE scale had reduced to zero which was extremely positive.
Re-assessing after this round and checking his body, Joseph said he now felt as if he wanted to let tension and fear go. He said he didn’t like to acknowledge fear about his cancer but of course it was there and he would like to flow it out. I explained how positive this was because to get rid of unwanted emotions, we need to acknowledge them and it would be difficult to conceive how Joseph could not feel a very natural fear.
During this round Joseph began yawning and sneezing as did I and again, something felt as it had lifted. Joseph’s face and posture had relaxed and he began to smile. We then focussed on flowing healing energy and did a round to ‘the golden light of healing is flowing in health and happiness’. We both sensed the golden light flowing through our body and it was a lovely experience. We followed this by drinking water which helps energy to move and tapping to ‘the magical elixir of healing is flowing through my body’.
Joseph’s face had really lifted and he said he not only definitely felt a lot less pain but he felt lighter and more optimistic about the future. His final SUE score was +5 which was extremely positive and we arranged a further appointment to continue to work on his pain and see if we could get his energy flowing even more strongly. Joseph also very much liked the idea of working to strengthen his immune system and belief about his ability to make a full recovery; He was aware that even the most orthodox doctors recognised the benefits of positive thinking.
We tapped a preliminary round to ‘my pain’ and I then asked Joseph what he wanted to say to his pain. He thought and came up with ‘my pain and the causes of it; please go away’. We tapped a round to this with a reminder of ‘please go away’. I checked afterwards and Joseph said he was feeling quite tingly and relaxed and my legs and feet were tingling strongly.
I then asked Joseph to describe his pain and he replied that it was ‘tight and uncomfortable and sometimes sharp’. I encouraged Joseph to be a little more specific about the sharp aspect and he said that his pain was ‘sharp like a pointed stick’. I felt this was very significant: I experienced a sensation quite strongly as if I was being prodded by a sharp stick in my abdominal area and I felt a rush of ‘energy empathy’ for his pain. This was in no way alarming rather I was even more motivated to help Joseph flow this facet of his pain out of his energy system. I was reminded of a client whose most significant blockages took the form of a stick. It was always about the feeling he had done something wrong and would be berated. I noted to myself this was an avenue that could well benefit from pursuing at some future date.
