The most common question asked about pain relief created from using the Stop Your Pain Now! techniques is “How long does it last?” There is no set answer to this question.  Sometimes pain relief is permanent.  In other cases, the pain may recur.  The difference between temporary and permanent pain relief from Stop Your Pain Now! techniques depends on the cause of the pain.

A woman whose menstrual period pain is alleviated by Stop Your Pain Now! tapping techniques (see free video clips – Relief from Menstrual Cramps!) may have a recurrence of period cramps at her next menstrual period if the underlying cause is a hormonal imbalance or nutrition problem. A person who has a flare up of joint pain after eating a food to which they are allergic will have the pain occur again when the food is eaten again.  When pain is due to an ongoing process that is not corrected, the Stop Your Pain Now! relief will be temporary.

There are also cases where the Stop Your Pain Now! techniques have totally and permanently eliminated pain that has been present for many years.  One patient had 12 years of knee pain after a skiing accident that was completely eliminated by one treatment using Stop Your Pain Now! techniques.

Nutritional needs are the most common cause of incomplete pain relief or recurrent pain after using the Stop Your Pain Now! techniques.  These are addressed briefly in the Stop Your Pain Now! Handbook, Audio CD, and DVD and will be covered more completely in the upcoming Stop Your Pain Now! book.

The Stop Your Pain Now! techniques should be performed to reduce pain and help avoid over-the-counter medications and their possible side effects, but they are not designed to address underlying nutrition and hormonal imbalances. For this, you must see your doctor, preferably one trained in natural health and alternative medicine.

On the other hand, if the pain is present due to an injury, old or new, then the Stop Your Pain Now! techniques are often totally effective.  Stop Your Pain Now! techniques are natural home remedies that are designed to enhance the body’s natural pain relief system by using a combination of the modern neurology of pain with ancient acupuncture / acupressure meridian principles.  Often, one correction following an injury will result in permanent relief.
