Emotion Code & Body Code

The Body Code

The Body Code was developed by chiropractor, Bradley Nelson (ret.) to clear energetic imbalances that he believes underlie virtually all physical and emotional problems. When Dr. Nelson was in practice, he specialized in treating complicated and mysterious conditions and saw people from all over the U.S. and Canada, as well as other countries. He came to view their symptoms as manifestations of imbalances in their body and discovered that releasing those imbalances created the proper conditions for emotional and physical wellbeing, and their symptoms disappeared.

A key concept in The Body Code is that the subconscious mind of each and every one of us contains the specific information we individually need to be able to function at our peak level and that this information can be accessed with muscle testing. The Body Code Mind Maps provide a comprehensive database of the imbalances that Dr. Nelson observed in his practice.

The Emotion Code: The Core of The Body Code

Dr. Nelson first developed The Emotion Code, which remains the foundation of this work. He found that when people experience a stressful or traumatic event, the negative emotions they feel at the time can lodge somewhere in their body. His theory is that like the rest of the body, Trapped Emotions are made of energy and can negatively affect the emotional state as well as distort the energy field and adversely impact physical tissues, which, in turn, can trigger a range of physical and emotional distress.

An important part of The Emotion Code is the Heart Wall. Dr. Nelson defines this as an energetic wall made of different negative emotions that the subconscious mind erects around the heart as a protective measure when trying to cope with deep hurt, grief, or heartache. Heart Walls can create significant barriers to being able to give and receive love, and clients have reported powerful positive shifts after their Heart Wall is released.



Karen helped me with escalating panic attacks that came on every time I drove on a highway ramp, steep mountain road, or high bridge. They were so bad I thought I was going to die. She was able to clear this in four Body Code sessions.

Karen is great to work with, and her sessions are money well spent!

I started experiencing odd health dysfunctions in my 30s, beginning with airborne allergies. Then later, I began reacting to foods as well. I tried allergy treatments using Western medicine, but they made me worse. I worked with a very knowledgeable holistic practitioner for a decade, and my system reached a workable stasis point. I had a list...

The Body Code: The Bigger Picture

Though energetic imbalances can manifest in many different ways, The Body Code identifies six main areas of energetic disruption:

  1. Energies: several different kinds of negative emotional or mental energies, including unhealthy connections between people.
  2. Circuits and Systems: imbalances in the meridians, chakras, organs, glands, and spirit body.
  3. Toxins: energetic disruption from heavy metals, microbes, chemicals, stress hormones, and more.
  4. Pathogens: the energetic footprint of infection from molds, viruses, parasites, fungi, and bacteria.
  5. Misalignments: imbalances affecting bones, connective tissue and more.
  6. Nutrition and Lifestyle: covers issues with foods and nutrients, water absorption, sleep, and more.


The Kinds of Issues The Body Code May Address

While it’s impossible to guarantee results, because The Body Code covers such a vast territory—and since, at least in my experience, literally anything can trigger an energetic imbalance—The Body Code can provide powerful tools to help people rectify troublesome issues in many areas of their lives. Clients report relief from all kinds of physical suffering, emotional distress, and blockages to achieving what they want in life.

Here’s a partial list of some of the issues The Body Code may help resolve:

  • Physical problems that seem to have no solution
  • Money/abundance blocks
  • Inability to focus or get things done
  • Creativity blocks
  • Troubled family relations
  • Persistent feelings of sadness, unworthiness, and anxiousness
  • Inability to find a compatible, loving, and supportive partner
  • Difficulty at work
  • Blockages to discovering your true path

Whatever the issue, it’s likely that underlying energetic imbalances are contributing to the problem, and removing them makes it possible to clear the way for true resolution. 

How Many Sessions Will it Take?

In my experience, the number of sessions to resolve an issue depends on how many issues the client wants to work on, how many layers of energetic imbalance contribute to the issue(s), and how much a client is able to clear in any individual session. I have seen troublesome issues disappear in one session, but typically it takes more. Whatever your goals, I would be delighted to help you achieve them!
