Kristen Hough, owner of 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.  

Our subconscious mind remembers everything that's happened in our lives.  Our conscious mind makes up between 5 and 10% of the entire brain, and the subconscious mind makes up the remainder of our total brain function.  Our subconscious remembers everything; every second of our life!  It remembers where we’ve been, what we’ve eaten, and people we’ve met.  It holds our memories and past experiences.  It's like our own powerful super computer.  


By using energy testing, Kristen can connect to your subconscious mind and remove trapped emotions by asking questions. Every one of our cells is capable of holding onto our emotions, and many times trapped emotions are lodged in areas already out of balance.  Because all living things have an electromagnetic field, and our brains and bodies are conductive, the practitioner can use the power of a client's energy to get answers.  The power of a muscle is directly linked to the balance of our electrical system.  A "yes" response keeps the tested muscle strong, while a "no" response weakens the muscle.  ​Once the trapped emotion is identified by your subconscious using energy testing, practitioners use a magnet or their own hand to release the emotion by running it over their own governing meridian.  The governing meridian is the energy line that connects all of the meridians in our bodies.  Using a magnet "magnifies" the intent to release the emotion and creates a flow of opposing energy.  If we think of our trapped emotions in layers, the more layers we pull off, the more change we could see in our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.  ​

Living open-hearted.  We can work together to release trapped energy and open up your heart.  Imagine a life filled with more joy, love and balance!

Letting go doesn't mean forgetting.  

It just means we stop carrying the energy

of the past into the present.

Kristen Hough, CECP

We're all connected by energy, and when our energy is balanced, we feel better.  It's simple!
Most of us know how to take care of our physical bodies, but haven't been taught to take care of our energy.  My goal is to normalize energy healing as a part of routine self care.
