What is the Emotion Code?

How does it work?

The Emotion Code is a simple and transformative energy healing method of finding and releasing trapped negative emotions that have been stored in the body through our subconscious minds’ desire to protect us from further suffering.

Created by Dr. Brad Nelson, the Emotion Code is a powerful and effective healing modality that uses muscle testing to ask the body information regarding trapped emotions. Trapped emotions are emotions that could have been felt or experienced at a time in your life that was so intense, it left an energy stuck in your physical body. A negative emotion would leave a negative energy. And negative energy attracts more negative energy! Consider it like a cellular memory similar to a memory we carry in our brain, but this memory is a ball of negative energy stuck in a place in our body, sometimes causing physical pain – Dr. Brad Nelson

The Emotion code is a systematic way of testing your body for a variety of possible emotions, and by process of elimination, your body will reveal what needs to be released. Layer by layer, you can chip away at releasing emotional barriers that you likely didn’t know you have been carrying along with you.

What Are Trapped Emotions?

Trapped emotions are negative emotional energies that we still carry around from past events, traumas or abuse. Trapped emotions can cause a variety of “symptoms,” including health related symptoms as well as blockages in relationships, career, or success. They can block people from finding true love and happiness and can make them feel disconnected or lonely.

Trapped emotions are made of energy, just like the rest of the body, and they can affect physical tissues, organs, and overall wellness. Trapped emotions can create pain, malfunction and possibly disease. In addition, trapped emotions can exert a dramatic effect on how you think, the choices that you make, and how you react to everyday challenges.

Think of trapped emotions as balls of energy that can be stuck in the body. They vibrate at different frequencies depending on the emotion. The trapped emotion, or negative vibration, can often affect the part of the body where they are stuck, but can also disturb overall balance and health.

Every trapped emotional energy is significant in your life. Each one has had an impact on you in some way or another. Each comes from a specific time or event that was experienced either by you or someone else that you inherited or absorbed the energy from. These energies affect us in a variety of ways and create challenges, problems, and pains of all sorts, both physical and emotional.

Whatever their origin, they certainly can make an impact on your life. There are times when trapped emotions can be excruciating! When significant pain like that is present, you might find trapped emotions nested in the area of pain.

Releasing trapped emotions balance the body so it can regain its full healing capabilities. Utilizing the Emotion Code, you may see physical and emotional issues disappear or become much less severe.

Where did it all start for me?

I had downloaded the audio version of Dr. Brad Nelson’s book, “The Emotion Code: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love, and Happiness”. Upon listening to the book, I became absolutely fascinated by the easy method described for discovering these trapped emotions I had heard about. I was fascinated by this easy, painless, powerful, and private form of energy healing, and it was encouraging to hear the countless testimonials mentioned in the book. From miraculous improvements in physical pain, to finding love, to chasing after dreams, I knew I had to try this healing modality for myself.

Working with a certified practitioner, I witnessed the process of identifying and releasing trapped emotions and experienced the huge improvements in my own health shortly after our session. In particular, I had been experiencing a nagging left hip pain with no reason why (no injury, no previous hip pain, no explanation as to why it was happening) as well as a general sense of heaviness, anxiety, discouragement and frustration. The practitioner identified and released 10 trapped emotions for me, and I immediately felt lighter and more energetic after the session. Most people have a period of processing for 1-3 days after the session, as your body releases, heals and rebalances.


I would highly recommend this healing modality to anyone and everyone – we ALL have trapped emotions, whether from past relationships, traumatic events, strong emotional reactions, various negative experiences, etc. It is fast, painless, effective, and consistently produces incredibly profound results!

Are Emotions From the Past Still Holding You Back?

Are you struggling under the weight of something you can’t quite define?

Do you feel your present is being held hostage by your past?


It may not be your imagination. The premise of The Emotion Code is that the energy of past emotions can literally become trapped in your body, affecting your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

We believe these Trapped Emotions could be keeping you in patterns of discomfort, sorrow, failure, and heartbreak.

The Human Energy Field

Knowledge of the human energy field goes back thousands of years and through many cultures.

The Emotion Code provides a framework for these ancient teachings by providing an understanding of how trapped emotional energies can cause blockages or imbalances in your personal energy field. With The Emotion Code, we believe it’s possible to permanently remove these negative energies.


The key to The Emotion Code lies in two important concepts:


1. Accessing Your Subconscious Knowledge Through Muscle Testing

Our premise is that the wisdom of the body is not held in the conscious, active mind, but in the subconscious mind, where the record of every experience, thought, feeling, or memory you’ve ever had is stored. We believe the subconscious mind exerts an unseen yet profound influence over how we behave and feel — and it’s also keenly aware of exactly what your body needs to get well. It’s our belief that to access these vast stores of knowledge, we need to bypass the conscious mind and speak directly to the subconscious. This is where muscle testing comes in.


2. Understanding the Basic Principles of Energy Medicine

To understand how healing works through the use of The Emotion Code, it’s important to recognize this truth: The body is made up of pure energy. Every organ, every bit of tissue … indeed, every cell of the body is made up of energy. But there’s more. All of the non-physical aspects of yourself — your thoughts, your beliefs, your memories, your emotions — are also made up of energy. When viewed from this energetic standpoint, you can see just how easy it really is to affect change, and how true and lasting healing really is possible. But not all energy is created equal!
