Hand Washing Compulsion Eased Quickly With Eft

in Hand
"Linda" worked in the sales department of a local advertiser. She

said that she washed her hands all the time, and that it was annoying

for her.

She would wash her hands at least fifty times a day, and she

wanted to let go of that behavior. We determined that washing her

hands was a level of intensity of 7 out of 10 for her in terms of it

being a compulsion. We started with, Even though:

I am compulsive about washing my hands

I wash my hands more than I need to

Then she mentioned that the doorknob entering the building was disgusting to

her and when she enters this building (we were at her job site) she

always had to wash her hands. So, we tapped for that but her level of

intensity didn't go down. Linda told me that she had been battling

with cancer and that was when she acquired the behavior of frequently

washing her hands. We added:

Even though I have been washing my hands because I don't want my cancer to get worse

Then I asked her to go out to the front door and look at the disgusting

doorknob to see what her anxiety level was. She was surprised to see

that her anxiety level had dropped to a 4 out of 10. Then we added, Even though

I'm tired of washing my hands so much

I have been washing my hands to make my cancer go away

I asked her to go back to the front door to see how she felt about

touching the doorknob. Her anxiety level had dropped to 2 out of 10.

I asked her if she'd like to get it to a zero and she enthusiastically

said "yes!" We continued by alternating the following statements:

Even though I still have some anxiety about washing my hands

I now have a healthy attitude about washing my hands

I asked her to go back and look at the disgusting doorknob again and see

how see felt. She didn't hesitate about opening the door. Her level

of intensity had dropped to a zero! She also commented on how energetic

she felt.
