Pain in the buttocks becomes a pain in the shoulder and then becomes pain free

Hi Everyone,

Rebecca Bish applied Optimal EFT for her 92 year old friend.  The pain went away but re-emerged later in a different place.  One more round of Optimal EFT took care of everything.  These types of delayed and/or shifting results are common.  Rebecca concludes by saying, "the greatest gift is that Optimal EFT has provided such a powerful and effective vehicle for sharing love and reminding us that we are truly all one."

e-hugs, Gary


Hi Gary,

I've practiced EFT for years, and have now moved on to Optimal EFT, having attended almost all of the webinars. I've sat quietly on the sidelines, but I felt I should share one of my experiences.

I have a dear friend who is 92 and in relatively good health, except for one annoying condition - a chronic pain in her buttocks. We've laughed about it for some time, but it had really become debilitating for her - constant discomfort, inability to sit for long, etc.

About a month ago, I offered to use Optimal EFT to see if it could help and after a brief explanation of what we'd be doing, we began. I should say, this was done over the phone - She lives in Dallas and I am in Tucson, AZ.

I asked her current pain level - she said it was an 8 or 9. We then closed our eyes and became very quiet - I "became her" and brought in The Unseen Therapist, "swirling" it around the buttocks area, for about a minute. She reported that the pain had gone down slightly, maybe a 6 or 7.

We proceeded again, but this time I was led to move the "swirl" (for lack of a better term) up and down, like a cocoon, covering her/our entire body. She reported a very strange sensation - the pain had moved into her thighs, and felt not so much like pain, but as she put it, "like a fist clenching and unclenching". But the pain in her buttocks was now down to about a 3 or 4.

We did one more session like this (cocoon), and though the pain never went to 0, it was lessened. Happily, she reported that, by the next day it was completely gone, as was the uncomfortable sensation in her thighs. I was a little concerned that I might have caused more problems for her, but that was not the case.

The pain, which she had previously experienced chronically, was gone for about a month, then returned recently in her left buttock only. She called and asked that we do another Optimal EFT session. We did the same procedure and this time I forgot to get a measure of current pain, though it was high. After two "rounds", we finished with some reported improvement.

After about a week I received a call from her telling me that she had experienced something bizarre the evening that we did Optimal EFT. There was a pronounced lessening of the pain in her left buttock, but she said she began to have extreme discomfort in her left shoulder area. In fact, she thought she might be having a heart attack and slept with the phone beside her for fear she might need to call 911.

The next morning she awoke pain free, both in her shoulder and buttock. She said the pain has been completely gone now for several weeks. I wonder if others have had a similar experience, where the pain seems to shift?

I am so grateful for you and all of your work over the years! While these healing "miracles" are wonderful, the greatest gift is that Optimal EFT has provided such a powerful and effective vehicle for sharing love and reminding us that we are truly all one.

With much love and gratitude,

Rebecca Bish
