Jill (not her real name) came into the clinic, sat in a client chair and said “Can you help me?”
I noticed that her head was jerking to the right about every ten seconds. I said “Is the jerking what you want me to help you with?”
She said “Yes the doctor called it Tardive Dystonia, and the only way he could stop it was to cut through the muscles in my neck. And I don’t fancy my throat being cut, so I came to see you. ”
I pointed out that I am not a doctor and I don’t know much about Tardive Dystonia but as a myotherapist I do know a lot about muscles, so maybe I could help.
In taking Jill’s history I discovered that she had suffered much abuse as an adult and child. It seemed to me that this was likely to be the cause of the problem, as many physical problems have an underlying emotional cause.
I asked her if she would tell me of a time when she was abused as a child. ( This is a technique known as tell the story.) Jill agreed and launched into a story about something that had happened when she was just seven years old. Within 30 seconds of starting her story Jill’s eyes were squeezes tight shut, and tears were streaming down her face.
I decided straight away to use continuous tapping, so as Jill talked, I tapped on her acupuncture points. We went on like this for about 35 minutes until Jill reached the end of her story, took a deep shuddering breath, opened her eyes and said “That’s better.”
I said “OK, its time to check the results.” We went back over the most traumatic parts of the story and there was no emotional charge left. Best of all her head was steady, with no jerking at all.
This is a problem she had been going to doctors, a neurologist and others for two years without a result, and EFT cleared it in 35 minutes. Sometimes I am amazed at the results.
PS. I asked Jill to come back for a checkup in 90 days . When she did there was no sign of the Tardive Dystonia.
