Release the filter of past pain that clouds present moments. By clearing out trapped emotions one by one, we can respond to life instead of reacting to life. Trapped emotions are like little balls of energy stuck in your body waiting to be triggered when you least expect it. Emotions trapped in the body from past experiences may cause emotional, psychological, and/or physical pain.
Sometimes, many trapped emotions form a wall around our heart. It was put there with the best of intentions, a form of protection. Having experienced a traumatic childhood, a divorce or bad breakup, the death of a partner or other loved one, abuse, or any other dreadful event, you may wall off your heart so as to not feel all the emotional pain associated with the experience. But this may also prevent you from giving and receiving love, keep you from trusting people and forming new relationships, and leave you feeling lonely and isolated.
Signs you may have trapped emotions forming a wall around your heart:
You been injured emotionally in the past
You feel an emotional heaviness in your heart, as though your heart was breaking
You feel as though you can’t fully experience joy or love
You struggle to connect with others
It is hard for you to connect romantically with your partner
You feel numb or closed off to love
You often feel lonely or isolated from those around you
You feel heaviness or discomfort in your chest, neck, or shoulders

I use kinesiology (muscle testing) or a similar method to identify the trapped emotions, one by one, from the subconscious and then release them. Permanently. Bring a notebook if you'd like to take notes about the emotions and other information garnered from the session.
During an emotional release, physical symptoms can include:
Shaking (similar to a dog “shaking it off”)
Deep, big exhales
Sighs, grunts or other noises
After an emotional release, physical symptoms can include:
Tingling hands, face and/or whole body
Feeling like a weight has been lifted off of you
Feeling like something inside of you “popped” and left your body
Feeling like the sensations or vibrations have flattened out or neutralized
Feels like a “blockage” has been removed and your energy is flowing more freely
The body may need some time to process having had trapped emotions released. This is a healing time. Most of the time, processing isn't really noticed. You simply feel lighter, less burdened. Other times, you may feel tired, out of sorts, cry, or even feel sick. The unpleasant effects typically only last for a day or two and are usually very mild.
Number of sessions The amount of trapped emotions a person has is unique to their life experiences. Initially, it will probably take multiple sessions to release your life's worth of trapped emotions. It took five sessions to release all of mine (including the ones creating a wall around my heart). Each trapped emotion is released one at a time, because each experience that caused it was important and unique. The body may release as little as one and as many as twelve trapped emotions per session.
After you are free of them (forever!) you may want to come in periodically to have any new ones released as we are constantly having new experiences. You may wake up one day feeling "off", not yourself, with no real reason. That may be a sign of another trapped emotion.
Of course, it is always best to prevent emotions from getting trapped by fully experiencing, expressing, and releasing them yourself, while in the moment. But sometimes the best laid plans go astray, which is when you can schedule a release therapy session.
