Dr. Bradley Nelson, in his 16 years as a chiropractor, developed two Codes (The Body Code & The Emotion Code). He found that when working on his patients, beneath their physical symptoms there seemed to be an emotional component for each. A delay in healing or actually preventing healing altogether was caused due to these underlying emotional components. Dr. Nelson began identifying and releasing emotions that had become trapped in his patients’ bodies. The results were positive. He codified the method, and in 2007, his book The Emotion Code, was released.
Trapped Emotions are the most common cause of imbalance in the body/mind, and these imbalances cause a wide array of emotional and physical symptoms. Dr. Nelson continued using and developing his method, and realized that there were some other causes of imbalance, as well. Trapped Emotions negatively influenced factors that were more physical. These additional factors were added to his method, and called this more comprehensive system The Body Code. There are 6 components in the Body Code. The first of these is the emotional component—The Emotion Code.
We are making the distinction that though the emotion/problem may not be acceptable, we are. Under these conditions, the emotion can be safely felt and expressed.
By observing and keeping our focus on the problem/emotion, we are consciously activating he underlying energy disruption, which is internal conflict. In this way, the timing of the tapping coincides with the energy disruption to help restore the balanced energy flow and internal peace through the release of the stuck emotion.
