How long before I start to notice changes?

Many people notice at least some change within the first session, often describing a reduction in pain and a “lighter” feeling. I like to use quantitative markers to help tangibly track progress; for example, at the start of a session someone may rate their back pain as a 8/10. As we release trapped emotions throughout the session, we will reassess those pain levels to look for change. Additionally, most people find the greatest shifts occur within the next couple weeks after a session. When you release trapped emotions from your body, your body has to process and re-integrate to its new state of being (and that’s a really good thing!).

How many sessions will I need?

As with any other type of healing, each person is unique and heals in a unique way. Most people see dramatic results after the first or second session. Some people I have seen weekly or bi-weekly for several months. The good news is that with The Emotion Code process, we can move through A LOT of stuff within a single session. I use muscle testing as a tool to help determine when/if you need another session. This ensures that you are getting exactly what is best for you and your unique situation. You will not need an intenstive Emotion Code session every week for the rest of your life. I intentionally structure each session to leave you equipped with a series of tools that you can implement in your daily life to continue your progress.

Are there any side effects?

The Emotion Code is a completely drug-free and non-invasive process. There are no side-effects in the traditional sense and no long-term negative effects. The process of identifying and releasing trapped emotions can sometimes invoke an emotional response in people. I keep a box of tissues available in the session for this reason! Tears are a good sign that a powerful emotion has been released and the body is adjusting to its new state. 

What if I don't know exactly what's wrong?

That is the beautiful part about the Emotion Code process. You don’t actually have to know what is causing your discomfort. I have many clients who feel unable to pinpoint the source of their pain, but just know that something feels “off.” Your subconscious already knows, and we use the Emotion Code and muscle testing to identify the source of your pain. Sometimes, it’s exactly what you think. Often, it’s something totally surprising!  Additionally, you will not need to dredge up old, painful memories in order for this process to be effective. For example, we may discover that you have a trapped emotion of “Abandonment” from when you were 15. We can still release this trapped emotion without you needing to explain precisely what the situation was. You never need to share more than you are comfortable with.

Is there an age limit for the Emotion Code?

Nope! The Emotion Code is effective for people of all ages, even infants. It can even be done with pets and animals to help with behavior issues. Understanbly, there tends to be more “baggage” the longer you’ve lived life so an infant probably doesn’t have as much to work through as someone in their 60’s. The Emotion Code process can also be really helpful for children and others who have a difficult time expressing and communicating their emotions.

Do virtual sessions really work?

The short answer? Yep. Based on feedback from clients who have done both types of sessions, the virtual sessions are just as effective as in-person sessions.

The long answer? Still yes. And here’s why: Everything at its base is energy. Virtual sessions are conducted using muscle testing that is done on a “proxy” – a person who acts in place of another person. If Sue in England wants to help Patty in Portland, she can act as a proxy for Patty herself, using self-testing. Then Sue can carry out the process as normal, just as if Patty were right there. Actually, proxy testing works quite a bit like how cell phones work. Out bodies have a built-in capability to quickly and easily “dial” someone else, and create an energetic connection with them. Once you’re connected, you can get answers about what is going on with this other person’s body, because you’re picking up their energetic signal. Then, once you know what needs to be fixed, you can fix it on the proxy person as well and it corrects the problem on the person who you’re intending to help, no matter how far away they are. The beauty of using the proxy method is that I can serve clients all over the world. Practically speaking, it allows individuals who are homebound to get relief. It also saves time and money, particularly for those who have a tough time getting away from the office or getting childcare – you can complete a session on a lunch break or from the comfort of your own couch. 

Where did the Emotion Code process come from?

Dr. Bradley Nelson, DC. founded the process.  After years in practice as a Chiropractic Physician, he had patients that should have been getting better, but simply were not. He began to recognize the Emotional Component that needed to be addressed.  You can learn more about Dr. Nelson and his work here.

Be honest - does this process really, truly, actually work?

I will be completely honest – I have done hundreds of Emotion Code sessions with clients and while many are very straightforward, some definitely are not. Each session brings up something new, and I continued to be rather astounded on a regular basis and what “comes up” for folks. Inherited emotions, in particular, can seem pretty wacky. I will never lie and say I have an easy, logical explanation for every thing that comes up in a session. But what does speak for itself are the results. Time and time and time again, I have seen the release of trapped emotions create incredible (sometimes nearly unbelievable) shifts for my clients. I never get tired of seeing the relief my clients feel when they finally get “unburdened.” So, when we discover that you are carrying a trapped emotion that you inherited from your father’s side of the family starting 8 generations ago…and you feel instantly better when we release that emotion? Heck, I’m going to go with it. If I didn’t see consistent results from this work, I wouldn’t do it. Simple as that.
