Release the Emotional Causes of Your Back Pain with EFT Coach Tania Lopez
Today on the show I have EFT Coach, Life Coach and Energy Healer Tania Lopez-Cepero. She was diagnosed with Scoliosis at age 12. Her back pain left her often for days in bed. At age 13 she had 2 Harrington rods fused along her spine. For the following 20 years, she had pain on and off. She tried different things like physical therapy, massages, medication etc, but then she would have back pain return. One day she found out about Emotional Freedom Technique aka tapping. Initially, Tania used EFT for her anxiety but quickly saw that it was helpful for pain as well. As Tania released the emotional components related to her back pain, she saw that her flare-ups were occurring less frequently and with less intensity. Since finding EFT, she rarely gets back spasms as she used to. Tania liked this technique so much that she is now an EFT coach. She helps people finding the emotional causes of their pain and helps them release their stuck energy so they can enjoy fulfilling lives.
