Unfortunately, I know many patients that went through the agony of surgery and their CTS returned in a few months. If acupuncture is out for you, Apparently your acupuncturist is afraid to go against the M.D.s (I would be too). If the pulser doesn't work. I would very seriously consider reading Dr. John Sarno's book. Also as weird as EFT appears it is highly effective, very easy to learn and better at this than anything else I have seen.
EFT may appear to be unbelievably strange, but we as a culture have been conditioned since childhood to believe that our bodies are mechanical, that all health conditions are strictly physical. The emotional, psychological are entirely left out. Look we have all these conditions, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, chronic pain whose causes have for a century have evaded science. It is because they have been looking in the wrong place. Thin people get heart attacks, non-smokers get lung cancer. People doing everything right get cancer, arthritis, etc.
As our culture continues to degenerate we see that these conditions are on the increase. Blame it on fast food, pollution, lack of vitamins, rather than the stresses of neoslavery, unable to pay the bills, a cheating spouse, kids that go to jail, the stress of a dope addict in the family, a sudden loss of a job all contribute to these health issues. Broken families coast to coast has lead to a broken nation that will fall just as the Romans did.
I'm not saying its "all in your head", this is not the case. The body, spirit and mind can not be separated, first the spirit needs healing and the body will follow. EFT is a wonderful tool to integrate healing.
