EFT Tapping Las Vegas - Placebo Effect?

At the location I work at, Northwest Wellness Center, we have several new treatment options available. Besides my own projects such as EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, integrating personal training with more movement assessments and therapies, the marvelous doctor I work with is beginning several new therapies in her chiropractic practice as well.

She’s beginning therapies such as oxygen therapy, vibration therapy, micro-current therapy as well as light therapy. Exciting times! EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is even mentioned in a book she provides to her patients, entitled The Power of Self-Healing by Dr. Fabrizio Mancini. He’s a great ‘open minded’ doctor, just like the one I work with. We are going to have an excellent year with clients and patients! Keep up to date on our webpages here, Chronic Back Pain Treatment In Las Vegas and Chronic Back Pain Relief in Las Vegas.

As mentioned in previous blog posts, I haven’t always been open minded. My thought processes swung like a pendulum from one viewpoint to another. When I was open-minded I ordered the EFT Tapping in Las Vegas material many years ago, yet, then my mind swung in the other direction, towards science and so called ‘evidence based therapies.’ Yet, here’s the rub, and it took years for it to finally sink into my thick skull ;)

In science, if they can’t determine HOW something works, then it can’t be labeled as evidence based. A friend of mine spoke to a science researcher and relayed this to me in regards to EFT Tapping in Las Vegas or anything else that is ‘tough to prove' or can't explain how it works.

He told me that when studying something they (the science researchers) have to show two things; that the ‘whatever is being studied’ works and (the big one) HOW it works. He told me that he has seen hundreds of studies that have shown things like vitamins, herbs, alternative therapies (such as EFT Tapping in Las Vegas) and other things have worked, and sometimes they have worked better then the standard therapy, BUT, the studies could not show exactly HOW it worked, thus the rub.

So, because the studies could not show ‘how it worked,’ they could not say that the (whatever) did work. He also told me that the format for most standard studies, the same exact things has to be use exactly the same way every time with everyone that is in the study. (Is this even possible when working with the human body? This also makes it very difficult for something like EFT Tapping in Las Vegas to be ‘proven’ due to the fact that if you miss the true aspects to ‘tap’ on, then one may say, “It didn’t work.” True, yet, not for the reason science chooses for you to believe.)

Another example, take herbs; when used in a study, the same amount of the herb has to be used at the same time in the same way with everyone in the study even when the people (or animals) are not the same size or the same sex such as male or female. Think of this, the average "serving" or dose of a OCD (over the counter drug) is based on a 175 to 185 pound man, so if you are a 250 pound man the recommended "dose" might not work, or if you are a 120 pound woman it could be too much and they would have a better chance of getting the side affects. This goes for EFT Tapping in Las Vegas as well.

I was also told that a lot of times they had to classify something as ‘the placebo effect’ when they could not find out or see how something did what it did. So, the fact that something worked, but was classified as the placebo effect…does that tell us that it did not work or that the researchers just could not find out HOW it worked? The placebo effect is very powerful, yet, most people dismiss it as hocus pocus, a quick fix, results that won’t last, just a trick in your mind, etc. Thus, I’m often asked if EFT Tapping in Las Vegas is just a placebo effect. Yes and no. It depends. If the mind runs the body, which it does, and a calm mind residing in parasympathetic mode is activated, thus allowing calming hormones, not stress hormones to course through the body, and this is all based on the placebo effect, does it really matter? It’s the same with EFT Tapping in Las Vegas.

Thus, to summarize what my buddy told me in regards to his discussion with the science researcher: “There is a big flaw in how we do studies when it comes to things that affect the body when all the factors can not be standardized 100%.”

Please understand that I love evidence and science. Yet, just because something can’t be explained by science as to how it worked doesn’t mean it didn’t work. So, let’s just keep on tapping and see where it goes. If you haven’t tried EFT Tapping in Las Vegas, give me a phone call at the number listed below, or send me an e-mail.
