Video: Watch Maggie Tap Away Her Pain in Minutes

Written by: Nick Ortner

Imagine being a flight attendant and having a passenger purposely trip you when you were walking down the aisle because he was upset at you for something… and having that fall be so hard that it forced you to quit doing the job you always wanted to do because of the long term physical pain.

That’s what happened to Maggie, who you’ll see in the video below. Maggie always loved to fly. For her, being a flight attendant was her dream job. Now, she deals with constant pain from her fall, frustration that she can’t work doing what she loves, and anger towards the person who purposely tripped her.

But could she release her pain? Could she use EFT Tapping for it? Is it possible to release the pain, frustration and anger?

Maggie was brave enough to join me on stage a few weeks ago when I was speaking in Washington, D.C. at a Hay House event. With just a few minutes of Tapping, she was able to release her physical pain in a way she hadn’t done since that day.

I’d like to show you that video footage today. As you watch the video, ask yourself…if Tapping could help her this much in just 10 minutes, what could it do for you? What things could Tapping help you to release and let go of that would allow you to move forward in a way you’ve never been able to do before?

I hope you enjoy your day. And remember…Keep Tapping!

    Amazing!!! Even though I am experiencing every day something different during the program, I am in awe at the awesome results I see in every person every video. Thank you very much Nick for these life changing tools you provide for all of us. God bless you and your team!!!.
    In every time I follow you Nick with other issues and different people, you manage to pulled some serious old issues that I thought they were gone. I send you and your team all my gratitude.

    Thank you Nick .

  4. Yvonne says:

    When talking about more income I realised exactly the same feeling that I was scared of managing more money because I have not been great in the past…went from a 9 to a 7 then a 3!!!!! Thank you xx

  5. Sue says:

    I realized during this video that I, like this woman, thought the man who hurt me was a “jackass”. His face popped up —-and the humiliation I felt was connected to the current fibromyalgia pain I was experiencing. I tapped along w/ her and felt better than I had in weeks! Thank you Nick for zeroing in on what was causing my pain!

  6. Carol Moss says:

    Hi Nick I watch I read everything you sent me my only downside at it’s the same I’m sure it’s the same for all where i live I know that it plays a role in people getting access to events we only have two ways in here on our island which isn’t small. I live in Newfoundland and labrador Canada to get here you either have to fly or Sale across the ocean on a ferry for eight hours and that’s if the weathers good and if we are lucky enough to have things like this here the people who really need your help usually can’t afford the ticket prices. To see anyone who do come here. But I will keep hoping and praying that maybe someday it will happen and it will be affordable to all.

  7. Vanda Guzman says:

    Thank you so much. I did the tapping along with you about a family member i visited in the U.S.for 2 weeks that really took me through it. Since then Doctors say my white blood cell count is low, I have liver problems, and that I need to be checked for cancer. I have been on Juices RAw veggies & fruits taking Resihi and other things . Just doing this tapping, I was totally relieved and I want to say thank you very much.Blessings & love Vanda

  8. Linda Keith says:

    I would like to try this, as I also have much pain in my back, hip and sometimes, my legs. I would like to acquire enough belief in Tapping to stop the pain.

  9. Sue Appleberry says:

    I played your video twice, tapping along with you and your guests — I have been having severe back pain — trips to the chiropractor, massage therapy, excrcise etc., which help, but it’s not permanent — every time a cold, rainy day comes around, I’m in serious pain again and my back needs adjusting . . .

    The pain and muscle spasms are greatly relieved . . . I had a chiropractor, who several years ago mentioned tapping as a way of communicating with the pain / brain releationship as being wonderful.

    So, thank you very much! I will be following you and your sessions much more closely!

  10. savitha says:

    Hi Nick,

    Everytime i watch one of ur videos it feels like no problem in life is really that big a deal anymore (although it was just a few minutes ago:-) )

    Thank you,


  11. Gerry says:

    That was so amazing! I too suffer from pain in my left hip. Right now though I am more concerned with my night time eating syndrome. I started reading Jessica’s book. Will let you know how that works for me!

  12. Jenny says:

    That is amazing. Nick I have purchased your book in hard copy and the DVDs so looking forward getting them and getting to work. As stress and fybromyralga is my problem. Jenny Williams

  13. Sage says:

    Watching this was very affirming. It felt good to affirm the the feelings that lay underneath of him being a jacka… watching the video reminded me of watching a tapping video last week by NIck before I actually bought the program.

    My shoulder blade was in pain – about a 9. I had shoulder blade pain for years from having carried heavy food trays. It particularly bothered me these last two months because of a lot of stress at work for an upcoming audit.

    While watching the video, it occurred to me to give tapping a try to address the physical pain. I was a bit skeptical but did it anyway.

    While tapping I began to break out in a small sweat and I felt things shifting immediately.

    By the end of the tapping, the pain level went from 9 to 4 or 5. Right now, a week later, it is about a 3 or 2 with just tightness and no pain. It was amazing!

    This EFT technique is God-send!

    Thanks Nick and Jessica!

  14. JaNise says:

    I love this! Maggie, that took such courage to work through that in front of everyone. You are amazing. This tapping is such a wonderful tool for clearing energy. I keep watching the videos, but haven’t had the courage to do my own tapping yet.
    This video helped me realized I NEED TO DO THIS NOW. 🙂

    Thank you!

  15. MaLa says:

    Just loved her calling him a jackass, took guts, good for her and it supports her healing as well. Thanks for sharing.

  16. This video was awesome,thank you Nick....X says:

    This video has inspired me so much……Please come to South Africa!!!!!

    Much love and Blessings


  17. Normande says:

    Thank you for this video.

    It helped me to release pain in my knees which is more apparent since 1 year ago.
    It was an accident in a winter station more than 15 years ago and my husband at that time didn’t want to bring me to the doctor arguing that You know now how it is having pain when I tell you about my knee and my back.

    I was deperate at the time and finally I gave up the idea to see a physician. But years go by and now that pain is coming back.
    With the tapping, the pain goes away easily and I just have to do it again once in a while.

    So thank you so much for that brillant idea and about anger I was carying inside.

    I wish you wellness and happiness


  18. Lea says:

    Beautiful! great, I would love you’d come to Europe for a pain release workshop! Maybe I could finally release a hernia that bothers me for a long time already! And I can’t figure what’s the cause of it! It’s an old pain.

  19. Sandra Bell says:

    I recently attended your workshop in Orlando (I Can Do It). I had a sugar low immediately after
    your session started so I had to leave for the first portion to seek a fix. I returned and you were
    working on Abundance. Although I am currently comfortable, I will never forget my days as a
    single mother of 5 and all the financial struggles that went with that….I was interested in your method but it didn’t resonate the way this short clip just did. I too am holding on to a lot of pain caused by the actions and lack of action surrounding my youngest son. His name is Josh. He has CP and as he grew into adulthood his depression lead to alcohol dependency and currently acute trouble with the law. Although I forgive him, I can’t seem to forgive his feckless attorney and the rehab center that keeps brushing him off. It;s literally making me sick and is also attracting all sorts of freaky unheard of disasters.
    After watching your video clip I’m ready to go back and read the first two chapters of your book and maybe take a page from Dr. Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay and give this a try. Frankly, before now this just seemed “too easy.” Thank you so much for putting this out there.

  20. millie says:

    I have been for a little while through emotional pain and I feel it truly works, sometimes I wonder why don’t I feel bad or sad anymore. It’s amazing. My back pain, it’s still there but I am able to sleep at night whereas just about a month ago I torsed and turned all night to the point that I’d cry in frustration. I was constantly late for work. Now the pain as somehow shifted to my upper arms. I have been tapping on that lately and it went from a 7 to about a 4. Have faith it works.
    Thank you Nick and Brad Yates, I use his videos as well. And I must say I do not take any narcotics for pain, just over the counter like Advil.

  21. Jeanette says:

    I changed some words to fit my situation, I had a friend who walked all over me and recently my pain in my feet was not doing me well. I went through the tapping and correlated the two and thought it might be stimulating form her and now I am not feeling that pain.

  22. Viji hashim says:

    Nick you are helping some many people online and I want to thank you for it. Love your updates. God bless.

  23. Sherry says:

    Will you ever be doing a pain seminar in Wisconsin? I live in SW Wisconsin and unable to travel more than an hour and half at a time. I have been in constant pain for 40+ years, the last 4 yrs. very severe with constant burning pain that causes sleep deprivation. I can barely function and very difficult to get through each day. I have Fibromyalgia, nerve pain from the low back down to the tips of my toes.. degenerative disc disease in lower back, irritable bladder, chronic fatigue, depression. I have tried many alternative therapies. Accupuncture, chiropractic, massage and etc. I had surgery on my C4-C6 last year for severe spinal cord compression. I am very intolerant to most all prescription medications. Implanted pain pump for low back issues since 2009, with no relief. I am thinking of taking the pump out, since the last part of May of this year, only have saline in pump. I was in a car accident in 1953. We were hit head on by a milk truck with the driver driving drunk. I had a broken leg and a blow to the left side of my forehead. My Mother, and Grandparents were killed in the accident and my brother and sister were in critical condition. My sister also has Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. I had an unhappy childhood, all my life has always had a lot of stress in it. I used to be a very active person in my earlier years, despite the pain. Raised on a farm and married a farmer, so have done a lot of heavy lifting and hard work. Was an avid horse rider. I was able to function through the pain, up until the last 14 years, I have had to struggle to do anything without making the burning pain worse.
    I would like to do the Tapping, but is difficult to know where to start, as I do not know what the root cause is to my pain. There could be so many things that are causing it. Years ago, I did EFT with a practitioner, but it was unsuccessful.

  24. Tania says:

    Thank you so much Nick for sharing this, I was really not expecting this as I read your e-mail.
    I was tapping along and had an amazing breakthrough. I lost my mother many years ago and since then have had this pain in my back not knowing it came from emotional pain. I discovered EFT in December at a yoga retreat that started me on my healing journey. This video brought me back to the months proceeding my mothers death up until the moment of her death. I didn’t realize how much emotional pain was still attached to those difficult times and how they were still attached to my back. Thank you again for being my link to my inner self.

  25. Crystal Hawk, psychothrapist, Toronto Canada says:

    I like the way you mixed it up. When a person is stuck and used to using EFT by mixing it up a bit and changing the process a bit, their usual reactions are caught “off guard” and often good things happen as happened here. Good work.

  26. Suzanne says:

    Just got some relief in my spine that has cancer from a 7 -4. I will continue to use tapping to relieve the pain more. I used it for the pain in my ribs and shoulder that both have cancer in them and have no pain in those areas. This is so wonderful and profound. Thank you dearly. I just love Nick Ortner too and the way he is with the people he is tapping with. I love his sense of humor too.

  27. Nancy says:

    I always get emotional when seeing these improvements. It makes me wish I could come to a seminar. Maybe someday that will happen. I’m so happy you put this information out to us.

  28. Donna says:

    Love it! I’m so glad the lady got some relief, and so quickly. I’ve not been as successful with pain. I have been with emotional shifts and beliefs. I really like watching these videos, as I see how the wording can be changed and be more effective. Thanks!! Nick and Jessica!

  29. Karen Sperry says:

    This was an interesting tap along for me. Previously I had tapped on the emotionally shattering events leading to the pain. Today, probably because the plane was mentioned, I went into a jetway incident that really upset me. It was just 1 of a zillion encounters with people who freak out if someone shows the signs of physical trauma, so I tried lumping them all together in the hope that I won’t always be the crazy recluse I have become now that simply being in public invites so many people to ignore my boundaries.
    Thank you

  31. Frances Hollowell says:

    I wish this would work for me. I had 6 fractured vertebra T5-T10 and a serious head injury and woke up in a hospital after being unconscious for 4 days. I can hardly get out of bed anymore and feel my life is ruined after living a happy, healthy and active life. This was caused by someone I had helped for several years and I still have to deal with the anger even though he passed away last year.

  32. Karen says:

    I need to practice the tapping and incorporate it in my life again. The video was inspirational. thank you so much

  33. Barbara says:

    WOW, WOW, WOW !! !! !! !! Maggie’s experience was amazing.
    When I first heard your CD one of the eight I tapped along and had an immediate release.
    I was dealing with my stored negative emotions from an abusive relationship. The longer his affair with his mistress lasted the more abusive he became.
    God Bless You Nick!

  34. thea says:

    I too went through an emotional trauma from a “jack-ass” in 08. In 2010 I fractured my spine and found out I had developed osteoporosis. This past winter ’15 I flew through the air from an ice filled stoop and landed on my back fracturing L-1 and T-4 vertebrae. I have since downloaded your book “the Tapping Solution for Pain Relief” and am beginning the process of healing in both areas – emotional pain and physical pain (severe). Thank you Nick for your continued support and encouragement through these emails.


  35. Christina says:

    …must have pushed something to post too early… OOPS!

    Meant to say – what a POWERFUL practice that was! I was tapping along and all kinds of things came up for me around an accident I had years ago that broke my arm and has left me unable to perform certain actions with it – straighten it, for example.

    Thank you so much for sharing this – I have your latest book sitting on my desk here – better get to reading! 🙂

  36. patricia rogers says:

    I was doing my own tapping with you regarding a person upsetting me in my life. I had a pain of about 9 this morning. When i finished tapping with you it went fro a 9 to 3. I would love to attend a meeting of yours. I have issues with my son dieing in a tragic manner and could also be contributing to my pain. I’m going to continue tapping. Thank you so much Nick.

  37. Priscilla H. Gonzalez says:

    I have no doubts about it being possible!!! Thank you

  38. Lois says:

    I can’t believe how tapping works and I am a “how” and “why” person. But after looking at the Tapping Solution I tried it for phobias and anxiety which I have had most of my adult life and couldn’t believe the result. I had a doctor’s appointment which are often difficult for me to drive to (I take medication), or I have to cancel, but I tapped before I got out of bed using positive reinforcement as I tapped and I was able to drive to the appointment without even being aware that I was driving – something I have wished for such a long time. I generally am aware of every block I travel. Now I am trying to stop taking the medicine I am taking for the disorder, which I now know can cause some very negative effects, and I plan to try tapping for that after seeing this video. Wish me luck because it is very difficult. I also plan to use if for pain from an injury and fibromyalgia, which have stopped most of the physical activities I was able to do with my grandson for nearly a year. I feel something I have never felt – OLD. Thank you, Nick, for the information on tapping. I’m looking forward to getting back the good parts of my old life and getting rid of the bad parts of it.

  39. Maria says:

    It was a wonderful experience like always from the first time I saw the tapping for me is the best thing had happened to me and I recommended to members of my family and friends too. Thank you Nick

    I can relate. I was a social worker @ a job I loved working with persons with mental, physical and emotional disabilities. The agency was quite dysfunctional and run by a V.P. who was quite abusive. Ar yr two of my employment I began having migraines and spent 1/3 of my paycheck on alternative health care to continue working…accupuncture, chiropractic, herbs, to keep me barely functioning. Upon being given my 79th case, my neck/back went into spasms, knocking me to the floor where it took 20 minutes before I could get up. I was placed on disability the following day and given pain killers, muscle relaxants, trigger point injections, anti- anxiety and anti-depression medication, along with physical therapy (which injured me more). I was placed on permanent disability, had a C5/C6 discectomy because my neck was not strong enough to hold up my head, I had 24/7 headaches and migraines weekly. I developed insomnia. I developed Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome along with depression, anxiety, and a weight gain of 40 lbs. That was 11 years ago. For 10-1/2, I was bedridden, unable to continue with my hobbies of weight lifting, hiking, or tennis. Last night as a side effect of the Fibromyalgia, my legs were burning severely from nerve pain. I applied Tapping and was able to bring the burning from a 12 (I know, off the chart but true) to a 4 after only 4 rounds. I am now spending days sitting in my living room instead of in bed, I am taking a Healing class, as I used to be a Reki pratitioner and massage therapist in between social work jobs. I can exercise for 30 min per day, although I haven’t been able to resume my favorite activities, YET. I am enrolled in both Nick and Jessica’s on line courses. II am planning to open my own healing practice next Spring or Summer., which is something I would have never even contemplated, only dreamed about 2 months ago. Thank you so very much for making Tapping so easily available. It is a Godsend!
