Over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Lower back pain alone accounts for more than $50 billion of lost work time and workerâs compensation claims annually. And letâs consider the fact that there are 600,000 knee replacement surgeries performed each year in the United States, and sadly, 20 percent of those patients end up with chronic pain after surgery.
The normal âsolutionsâ weâve been taught involve seeking out more doctors, surgeries, injections, and medications, all of which have a place in healing. But when it comes to chronic pain, conventional medicine isnât getting the job done. So what can we do?
In The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief, which builds on the information contained in the New York Times bestseller The Tapping Solution, Nick Ortner presents a startling alternative. He lays out a step-by-step plan that teaches people 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 readers 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 readers on a journey that begins on the surfaceâtapping to address the pain itselfâand moves to the deeper issues that often affect pain. With easy-to-follow tapping scripts and exercises to guide readers into their pasts, Nick helps them heal the emotional pain and underlying beliefs that often keep people stuck. He also addresses topics that many people donât know are associated with chronic pain, such as:
Releasing the past
Creating personal boundaries
Dealing with toxic relationships
Clearing resistance to change
Understanding the power of a diagnosis
Working through anger
There are many different ways the brain and body can create, increase, and prolong pain. In these pages, Nick helps readers understand what is causing their pain and provides them with the tools to achieve complete and lasting pain relief. But itâs about more than just pain relief; itâs about empowering readers to take back their bodies, so they can live the life they most desire.
