The Emotion Code technique releases trapped emotions in the body. It was developed by Dr Bradley Nelson author of the book The Emotion Code, and creator of the Body Code System.  Dr Nelson points out that 80% of pain issues in the body have an emotional connection. Releasing trapped emotional energy, may reduce energetic blockages in the human energy field, and support the healthy functioning of the body. 

Dr Nelson's definition of the Emotion Code:

In short, the Emotion Code is the simplest, easiest, and fastest method ever devised to find emotional baggage (using muscle testing) and release it, either from yourself or from someone else. Our emotional baggage consists of actual energies, the energies of intense emotional events that we’ve experienced that are still stuck in our physical bodies. These energies distort the normal energy field of the body, creating pain, malfunction, all manner of disease, and even cancer. In addition, these energies (trapped emotions) are the driving force behind PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias and all manner of mental illnesses.

Emotions are energy, and sometimes emotional energy gets trapped in the body and human energy field. Life events contribute to all kinds of emotions, positive and negative. For the most part we deal with these events, and process the emotions and release them. However, sometimes our emotional processes are not effective, especially if it is a traumatic event or our body is imbalanced due to a health condition. These emotional energies which are called Trapped Emotions, lodge in the body and auric field. These trapped emotions are balls of energy that can lodge anywhere in the body and imbalance the body’s energy field in that location, contributing to pain or health issues.

Trapped Emotions are released from the body by locating the trapped emotion using kinesiology, a modality that uses muscle testing to get answers from the body. Through muscle testing and scanning an emotional chart, I locate the trapped emotion. Once the emotion is located, I set an intention to release that specific emotion. To release the emotion, I run a magnet in reverse over the Governing Meridian (a major energy vessel in the body’s acupuncture system). The magnet erases the emotional energy of that emotion from the body’s energy system, much like running a magnet over the magnetic strip of a credit card; it erases the information from the card.

"Before I went through an emotional clearing session with James, I had been experiencing a high level of anxiety related to a life transition.  My muscles were tense all the time, I was exhausted, and I was having difficulty concentrating. After two sessions with James, my muscles are relaxed, I have an increase in energy and I'm able to concentrate again.  Thank you James for helping me heal.”


Another issue with trapped emotions is they can create a Heart Wall, a wall of energy around the heart to protect it from emotional hurt. Think of it this way. Imagine your heart as beautiful goddess. And to protect her from harm and danger (emotional hurt) she is locked inside a room, unable to express her beauty and love to the world. This is what a Heart Wall does; it blocks the heart’s loving energy from being fully expressed and received. The Heart Wall can impede having a healthy relationship, health, and wellbeing and block the heart’s energy from fully expressing and receiving love.

When I first met James he told me about a process that he uses to help release emotional blocks from around the heart energy space. Having been a student of Emotional Freedom Technique I was familiar with the implications of having emotions held up within the body's energy meridian but was not aware of how many blocks I actually held. James did a session with me that lasted about 45 minutes and went inside of my system to break up the blocks. I set a goal to walk the Black Creek Trail with easy in 2 weeks and was able to do this within three days. My physical problem was the over growth of candida.  Partially this was the result of emotions that were pinned inside of my body. Today I feel vibrant and younger than I have ever felt before. For the first time in a long time I saw a gorgeous, beautiful Goddess in the mirror.


The Body Code System was created by Dr Bradley Nelson, and is used to address and clear subtle energy imbalances in the body, that contribute to health conditions.  It is a system of mind maps for locating underlying causes that contribute to health symptoms by way of muscle testing the various Body Code maps, that can locate an energy disruption or indicate that the body needs support, such as a food or nutrient. The Body Code maps looks at six major areas for imbalances that can contribute to a health symptom:

  • Energies: covers distorted energy patterns from trapped emotions, a Heart Wall or other mental energies.

  • Circuitry and Systems: covers the meridians, chakras and organs.

  • Toxins: covers toxicity from chemicals, EMF’s and heavy metals.

  • Pathogens: covers pathogens such as parasites, viral and bacterial.

  • Misalignments Structural: covers misalignments in the skeleton, organs and glands.

  • Nutritional & Lifestyle: covers imbalances from food, supplements or lifestyle issues.

By muscle testing, and using the Body Code maps, I can narrow down what is imbalanced and clear the imbalanced energy, by running a magnet down the Governing meridian with the intention to clear the disrupted and trapped energy, which in turn supports the body to return to wellness. The Body Code system includes the Emotion Code. To learn more about the Body Code System click here.
