Wow!! This book really resonated with me. The concepts speak truth to my heart.

I was a bit cautious going into it because last September I had read a book recommended by my mother called Remembering Wholeness that felt really "off" to me in a lot of ways. I knew this book was based on some similar ideas... energy within the body and working with that energy to improve life. Based on my negative experience with the other book, I borrowed this before I would commit to a purchase. I was about 50

Recommends it for: anyone w health issues, feeling stuck in life
Recommended to Chris by: my Chiropractor
If you are dealing with health, relationship, and/or financial issues, this book is worth a read, and the exercises included, worth a try.
One note, this book has some incredible facts and practices you can try out, to help support yourself and your loved ones overall health and well being. However, you will have to get beyond the author's religious beliefs (if you do not personally subscribe to them) in order to get to the deeper, universal, message of:
Emotions are energy, and just as they can
This should receive TEN out of five stars!!!! Seriously, I am really enthusiastic about this. I have used it on myself with wonderful results and I have already put this information to work in my practice and seen further phenomenal results with my reiki clients.
This should be required reading for all energy and other CAM practioners, but is also easy enough to read and understand clearly for people who aren't in the healing arts profession.
This book is a breakthrough for anyone who is sufferi

Recommends it for: everyone
This is definitely one for my tool box and it makes so much sense to me. (OH, I think I said the same thing about the first book I added, ...but it is true. What I really like about this book, is it is written by someone I respect. I don't know Dr. Brad Nelson, personally, but I know both of his brothers. Dr. Brad uses several magnetic tools that I have in my house and practice, in a way that releases trapped emotions. Trapped emotions are ones that we don't know that we have, but they manifest ...more
I sent this around for my long distance book club and haven't gotten it back. Some very interesting and compelling ideas about how things (ie. the entire universe) work, though I believe that one must take greater advantage of applying the atonement of Christ to get the results he claims.
5 months on a book is more than I usually spend, that's for sure! I had to take this one in doses, though. I've been using the tools from the Emotion Code in one form or another for a couple of years now, first in working with someone who used it with me to help me get through some icky stuff and then she and other friends taught me the rudiments to use on myself. I realize now that I've been playing with it without a perfect knowledge of the concepts behind it. Nevertheless, the idea is simple ...more

I've been a massage therapist for 20 years, and I've seen stored emotions come out in people many times (along with memories), so I do believe in the premise of this book. However, this book's method of assessment is based on applied kinesiology, which I've just never been able to get on board with. Some of the practices and beliefs seem reasonable enough, and others are just too far-fetched. In addition, not only has there never been any studies done showing the reliability/validity of A.K., th ...more

When first introduced to this technique a decade ago, I dismissed it as a bunch of hooey. However, as with all of the lessons God wants you to learn, He keeps putting the same message in front of you until you actually pay attention. For those unfamiliar with alternative medicine, you will most likely dismiss this method of muscle testing and tapping as I originally did. However, if you suffer from any phobias, emotional baggage, and/or chronic disease, read this book once viewed with an open mi ...more
"While some prescription medications do address the cause of illness, most only cover up the symptoms. They usually do such a wonderful job at masking our symptoms that we may think our problem is gone, when it is merely being chemically suppressed. Remember that symptoms are the body's way of telling you that something is wrong. They are a warning signal that you need to change something, or that your body needs some help."

This is an amazing book. My life is forever changed knowing how to relea
I totally believe that emotional issues can affect our physical health. This book explores the idea that "trapped emotions" can be identified and released. I believe there is a process here that has great potential in the healing of our physical pains. I have used Dr. Nelson's techniques, and believe they work. It is an amazing thought that we can communicate with our spiritual self, and discover what a true healthy body might feel like. The negativity and evil of the world can and does affect u ...more

I put a strong warning out against this product. I tried it for a little while and it seemed to work. Then after a very short time I began to have mental problems, depression, disorientation and exhaustion. I strongly believe this product had something to do with this as I had always been very strong mentally. A friend of mine that used it also had problems and warned of using it excessively. I did use it on a few people without a surrogate because the book mentioned using it on some puppies wit ...more
I've been looking for a book to help me let go, move on, and get rid of "stuff" I'm tired of dealing with "stuff". My friend turned me onto this book and it's helped my son, me and many other friends. It just makes so much sense. It has helped me heal my body and my soul. I highly recommend this book.
Sara Liechty
I really enjoyed this book. It helped explain muscle testing and why it works and how to release some of those emotions that get trapped throughout our lives. It really spoke to me and believe it or not, the methods are working!
Ryan Daley
If you have had the opportunity to be affected by a practitioner actually doing this - you will find this book fascinating and insightful - a must read. If you have never experienced it you will have a hard time believing it. I only read this after a second visit to an office where this was used - and not even knowing it but being surprised by the results - I walked out looked around and saw this book sitting on the counter and went a read it the next weekend. Again, if you have experienced it a ...more
Loved this book! I learned so much & after having attended one of his classes, I can't wait to try out what I've learned. FYI, This book can be downloaded for free.
This book really lines up with a lot of little things I've personally thought or learned and gathers it all together in a way that has opened my mind to a new understanding of what we as humans are in relation to each other and how we can communicate with and help others. I'm not quite sure I am ready to agree with his healing method 100%, but it has definitely given me food for thought. I really appreciated all of the scientific studies; that made it much easier to grasp on a common sense level ...more

As with all pseudoscience, it starts with a believable premise. Here that premise is, emotions get trapped within our bodies.

Okay, enough of the believable. Now he says that by affecting the "energy" (there's that word again), we can go directly to that ball of emotion and intercept it, and therefore create a change.

Of course he uses a lot of anecdotal evidence, but as any attorney would tell you, the least trustworthy form of testimony is eyewitness testimony. That's why we have scientific met
Really interesting read, I'm thankful it was recommended to me!
must read... liked it better than Remembering Wholeness
How I came upon this book is pretty interesting to contemplate. I cannot deny that it was providential and that I am supposed to add this to my “alternative health” toolbox.

The Emotion Code first discusses how trapped emotions effect our health. Nothing new to me, I am a wanna-be EFT Master.

Next he discusses energy and magnets. Familiar with that too, though I don’t regularly use magnets.

Then he launches into a huge tutorial on muscle testing. I am very familiar with that, but need to get goo
This is one of the best modes of therapy I have ever tried. I have used this technique over the last 5+ years with the help of other people and finally sat down to read/study it myself. I highly recommend it for anyone "stuck" in any aspect of their life. All of us get stuck sometimes:with physical ailments, relationship conflict, financial problems, etc. and there may be more going on in our bodies than just stress. I believe that we are not here on this earth to be miserable, but to have joy. ...more
My Mom recommended this book to me. It seems hokey at the outset, but with so simple a method and so huge the gains, what do I have to lose or suspend but a little pride?

Bradley Nelson helps us understand how we are made up of millions of molecules that can trap negative energy. In order to release it, a magnet is used according to the specific emotional ailment the body identifies as being the source of pain.
Sometimes when you feel desperate you end up trying and going a different way than you normally would. I got this book recommendation from a very close and trusted friend. It is all about releasing trapped emotions that may actually be causing you emotional and physical symptoms. I really wanted it for me and my son. We had been working on it, and so far nothing spectacular, but I think we are making progress.
For a few years now, I been curious about the magical mysteries of muscle testing. Now I know how it's done :-) Although.... I can't quite get it to work on myself yet but I'll keep practicing. I saw a naturopathic doctor a few years ago who would muscle test me for various reasons every visit and it seemed to always be spot on.
James Briggs
While this is one of the many books I didn't get around to finish, it is one that I will someday soon finish. It has a lot of good ideas and lessons that make sense and I believe it. It's also a super easy read. I highly recommend it.
The foundation of this book was very interesting and intuitive. It helps that it was written by my Mom's cousin. I went and saw a practitioner who specialized in The Emotion Code and her work has changed my life.
My husband and I tried muscle testing with both arm and sway methods. Neither worked for us. (Maybe we were dehydrated or our necks were out of alignment?) I want to believe. Maybe I will try again.

I have to admit that when I was first told about Emotion Code, I was thinking it was pretty hokey. However, I like to learn and study all kinds of things, and I was interested enough to borrow this book. As Dr. Nelson talked about energy and how at the basic level, all things are created of atoms which are made of energy, I could see how our speech, our thoughts, and our emotions are energy just like our cells are. It made sense that the energy of how we think and talk can impact the world aroun ...more
Mr. Nelson makes some interesting assertions about the nature of man, most of which I agree with. He further states that we often hold an adverse emotion in our bodies and shows how these can be released. Much of his "evidence" is anecdotal and I couldn't help wonder if it would hold up to strict scientific scrutiny. Still, I see an increasing awareness on the part of the medical community and other researchers of the powerful influence the mind and emotions play on our emotional and physical he ...more
This book really opened my eyes to the power of the subconscious. I was eager to put some of the exercises to practice so made it a point to read it from cover to cover in one sitting. This book is for anyone who wants to learn about the power of the subconscious and how to get more in tune with the physical body. Very informative and highly recommended.
