How did you find out about The Emotion Code and The Body Code?

I first heard about The Emotion Code from a friend of mine who had listened to a telesummit on which Dr. Bradley Nelson was interviewed. She had followed up by buying the set of DVDs. When I heard that one needed to do muscle-testing I backed off somewhat, due to an incident in my life some fourteen years prior. She suggested releasing emotions in regards to that. This led to me also buying the set of DVDs. I was so thrilled with several of my initial session results that I just had to proceed with my Certification.

How do you think these healing methods compare to other energy healing modalities?

I find The Emotion Code to be a quick and concise way to get to the root and underlying issues of problems. I am delighted and honored to be a facilitator using this beautiful tool, which allows the client’s own body to be accessed through muscle testing—to zero in on what it needs to release, in order for the mind and body to gain improved health on many levels. My clients have had beautiful benefits from this wonderful method of healing.

What advice would you give to those that are new to either The Emotion Code or The Body Code?

Keep practicing. Learn to trust your intuition as well as the process. The Emotion Code is easy to learn.

What differences do you see between our healing methods and the westernized medical/drug industry?

The Emotion Code goes to the root cause. In the Western world we are generally not taught about this, and we tend to expect doctors to know what is good and right for us. Doctors are great in trauma situations, but for the most part Western medicine only treats the symptoms.

Do you have a healing story that you could tell us about?

I had just done my own first session on a Sunday afternoon, when I received an email from a friend of mine saying, “Migraine… took medication for it, going to bed, can you do a healing? will talk to you tomorrow. Thanks D.”

I was surprised to find and be able to release ten emotions. I wrote down the ages when they occurred and if there was more information or not. I emailed her the ones I had been able to release and could hardly wait to talk to her the following evening.

Two days, and then ten days later her migraine was still gone and she felt really good. She’d had 2-4 migraines per week for 38-39 years!!! That simply floored me. I was elated, and this made me aware of how important it was for me to become certified.

She had another migraine four months after this initial session; it was set off due to anniversary triggers from past relationships. Since then she has been okay.

If you could tell the world about Dr. Nelson’s methods in one sentence, what would it be?

Try it! You have nothing to lose (except baggage!) but so much to gain in so many ways.

How do you see this work impacting the future of health care?

Energy medicine will once again become very important in our daily lives.
