Emotions Trapped in the Body

Updated: May 13, 2023

Why do we keep hurting after the damage is done?

“So instead of moving beyond your angry moment, or a temporary bout with grief or depression, this negative emotional energy can remain within your body, potentially causing significant physical and emotional stress.

Most people are amazed to find out that their ‘emotional baggage’ is more literal than they had imagined. Trapped emotions actually consist of well-defined energies that have a shape and form. Although they are not visible, they are very real.”

The body is not meant to hold on to these emotions, so it calls your attention when you haven’t released them. These reminders from the body can be a literal pain in the neck, the shoulders, the back, splitting headaches, or even digestive issues. Over time, when emotional or mental discomfort is built up in the body, it can manifest in energy you can feel and sense.

The good news is that many issues such as uneasiness, physical discomfort and even low moods can be assuaged by releasing emotionally charged energy in sabotaging beliefs or unhealed emotional wounds.*

"It's amazing how this can happen to so many people. Because of the shock of trauma in their lives, they can never get beyond those corresponding emotions, and their health and their lives break down."

-Dr. Joe Dispenza, New York Times bestselling author

Modern, allopathic medicine is highly important in our society and the very best place to go if you break a bone. If you need medical attention of any kind, please don’t hesitate to get it. If you want to alleviate emotional hurt or turn off negative mental tapes, you may want to consider releasing them energetically as well.

So negative beliefs and emotional trauma are causing me pain or illness?

Nothing stated here should be construed as a medical diagnosis. Discomfort of any kind can be your body’s way of letting you know there is an issue to address. Ignoring little physical annoyances or uneasiness, however, can invite a more serious discomfort into your experience. If the discomfort is due to negative energy, it won't just go away because you ignore it or "think positive."

What does energy work do?

Many clients report that they feel a lessening of tension or increased clarity on troubling issues after receiving energy work. ​I employ many modalities, including muscle testing, to find energetic causes of your distress and how best to remove it. I don’t ask for or need the details of the original hurtful event - your personal history remains private.

Muscle testing is a part of kinesiology that works on the premise that the body responds differently to the truth and to lies.

Many things that cause emotional and mental unhappiness are from so long ago you may not even remember them consciously, but the body does.

All that is needed for relief is an understanding of which emotional category the stuck feeling or belief falls into and then we can begin to address it.

Once you can identify the emotion or belief, you can release it.

When the emotional energy imbalance is relieved, it’s as if the body says,” Ah, finally! You resolved that. I don’t have to call your attention to it any more with physical suffering or disturbing thoughts.” After a session, you may begin to feel shifts in your body and in your mood.

Reply if you suspect an emotion like anger or fear could be trapped in your body.
