finding balance through energy healing

Ty Willyums

 Openhearted works with a simple energy healing technique called The Emotion Code developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson.  It releases trapped emotions to lighten the load of the emotional baggage we carry throughout our lives.  This baggage can affect our physical, emotional, and mental well-being.


Releasing trapped emotions can bring our bodies back into balance.  Trapped emotions are spheres of negative energy that become lodged within our bodies, and can lead to physical and emotional imbalances.  We can have inherited and absorbed emotions too, which could be contributing to unexplained stress, pain, anxiety or phobias. Dr. Bradley Nelson believes that trapped emotions are largely responsible for pain and disease.  We all have trapped emotions from different periods of our lives which could be contributing to emotional and physical imbalances.  When we release these emotions, we may feel lighter and more balanced.  As we continue to help ease our bodies back into balance, we can see changes in our well-being.  Our immune systems may function more effectively, we may notice our communication improve, and the ability to love can flow more freely.  Physical pain and ailments can decrease and in many cases, disappear.  Read more here about The Emotion Code explained by creator, Dr. Nelson.



Releasing trapped emotions through distance healing. 

My name is Kristen Hough, and I'm a certified Emotion Code practitioner.  

I've worked with past and present clients ranging in ages

from newborn to 75 years of age with the following:

*releasing trauma and painful memories from past events

* decreasing stress, anxiety, and feelings of depression

* decreasing physical pain 

* improving communication

* clearing the throat chakra to encourage self-expression and advocacy

* strengthening relationships

* decreasing rage and anger

* releasing self-sabotage and self-destructive tendencies

* removing fears and phobias (including my own fear of birds!)

* removing imbalances to encourage more self-love and respect

* opening up the heart to give and receive more love


Every trapped emotion released is another step towards clearing imbalances and living the life you want.  All of my sessions are done remotely- over the phone or video conferencing.  I also have some clients who prefer not to have a one on one session but would still like the benefits of releasing trapped emotions.  I connect to these clients with a picture and send my findings over email.  Energy knows no bounds- we are all connected!

What's your "go-to?"   Imagine for a moment that our trapped emotions are rocks and our bodies are pails.  As we trap these emotions our pail fills up.  Emotions from inherited from our ancestors, absorbed emotions from a friend, events from childhood, trauma experienced through a loss or divorce, an argument with a loved one, a tough day with the kids or at work- they all get put into one pail!  We only get one pail (read: body).  If you have a bad week or you’re overwhelmed with say, the pandemic, your “go-to” takes over. This “go-to” could be depression, anxiety, a specific fear or phobia, pain in your neck or back, self-sabotage- you name it!  So you know when we say things like Ike, “I feel so______ this week for some reason?" The reason is, your pail has been tipped.  Once these trapped emotions are overflowing, you start to feel it. When we reduce the level of emotions in the pail, we reduce our overall baggage and feel better.  That’s how the Emotion Code works!

At openhearted, we can work together to release trapped energy and open up your heart.  We can get you to a place where you can live a life filled with more joy, love, and balance!  

Consult.  Book an intro session to learn more about The Emotion Code and how this modality could work for you.  I also highly recommend reading The Emotion Code book by Dr. Nelson to learn more about how this all works before your session.

"One of my favorite things about the Emotion Code is that you don't have to relive the events that trapped the emotions in the first place.  Actually, you don't even need to voice them to me at all!  We find the emotion, we release it, and it's gone for good."
