The Emotion Code

What is the Emotion Code?

Energy Healing
The Emotion Code is an energy healing technique that helps to identify and literally release “trapped emotions” – which are harmful emotional energies from negative past events.

Trapped emotions can cause depression, anxiety, they can block you from love and happiness and make you feel disconnected from others. And because trapped emotions are made of energy, just like the rest of the body, they exert an influence on the physical tissues, and can cause acute pain and even diseases of many kind.

Releasing trapped emotions make conditions right for the body to heal – so physical and emotional difficulties often disappear or become much more manageable.

Just about everyone has some amount of emotional baggage from painful life events, right? It’s not all in your head! Emotional baggage is very real, and although it’s invisible it can really mess up your happiness, your success and your health. It’s like lugging around a suitcase from every difficult event you’ve gone through – eventually the load gets too heavy not to notice. Each “suitcase” is a Trapped Emotion – a bit of emotional energy that was created by you, during an emotional event, and got stuck in your body somewhere.

Watch this movie with Dr. Bradley!

To release the trapped emotions I communicate with the subconscious mind to find the answers we need, this I do by muscle testing. The subconscious mind is like a database and has stored everything that has ever happened to you. The conscious mind is only about 10% of your intelligence! The other 90% of your intelligence is subconscious and knows for example all about your health or disease.

When we release the energies I roll a magnet a couple of times down the governing meridian, along the back. The magnet intensifies my intention of releasing one energy at the time that we just identified.

How is it possible?

By muscle testing we can identify the “trapped emotions” and release them, one by one, with a magnet as an amplifier for the energy of the thought and intention. This will produce the change in the body and start the healing process.

The intentions and thoughts we have are energy. Magnets are energy, your body is energy. Because of this, one can have an effect on the other.

We use the governing meridian as the entrance point for the amplified intention energy. The meridian is an energy reservoir that connects directly to all the acupuncture meridians of the entire body. So when you put energy into the Governing meridian, it flows instantly throughout the body and the trapped emotion is released!

Resonance Repatterning

As seasons change, consider personal growth, renewal and…Resonance Repatterning

“What could be more exciting than a method that can deliver us, individually and collectively, from the recurring effects of our past trauma, and make life easier and more fun? There is no work more significant for these times.” – James L. Oschman, PhD, Author of Energy Medicine

Beth Barbeau

Beth Barbeau, Resonance Repatterning Practitioner

Resonance with old life-depleting beliefs that are associated with highly charged feelings (or not resonating with life-enhancing beliefs), create much of the pain and limitations that we experience to present. In Resonance Repatterning, we identify and transform these beliefs and feelings that underlie the present problem or difficulty that you are experiencing.

What people are saying about their experiences –

“My physical voice is so much clearer, I’m even articulating more clearly. Something that was hanging, pushing, pressing on me is gone. I’m getting done stuff I’ve been avoiding for years.” – Lynn, Ann Arbor

“Repatterning allowed me to overcome an insecurity that I have carried around since I was under 5 years old. It has directly impacted my relationship with my husband, because it finally allowed me to participate in our marriage without judgements and expectations.” – Bridgette, Howell

“I’ve noticed an expanding capacity to receive.” – Diane, Novi

Beth Barbeau, BS, has been a Resonance Repatterning Practitioner for over 25 years. To schedule an appointment for your Repatterning, please call Health, Naturally! at 989-684-9701. Opening are limited.

Bodies feel better with Bowenwork

Mary Anne Malek, Certified Bowenwork Practitioner

Mary Anne Malek, Certified Bowenwork Practitioner

Bowenwork is a holistic soft-tissue technique that relaxes and returns the body to a healing state. A Bowenwork practitioner applies light pressure through a minimal number of precisely located moves or touches over tendons, muscles and nerve bundles. In response the body resets its various systems, bringing the person into balance and promoting healing and well-being.

Each person responds differently to a Bowenwork session.

Everyone responds to Bowenwork according to what his or her body needs in order to heal. Often a person’s body begins to respond almost immediately. In most cases, after only a few, gentle moves over muscle and other soft tissue, healing can begin on the physical, chemical, emotional, mental and energetic levels.

Bowenwork practitioners routinely see hundreds of conditions respond positively to Bowenwork. In addition to the many musculoskeletal conditions that improve, problems related to respiration, digestion, reproduction, vitality, energy and even mood often respond as well.

Is Bowenwork right for you?

Bowenwork’s gentle, non-invasive nature is the key to its success, and attracts many people to it, whether they are interested in exploring Bowenwork as practitioners, to help with their own chronic or acute conditions, or to support the health of family and friends.

  • Bowenwork is gentle and safe Anyone, from newborns to the aged and infirm, can safely receive a session, even if they cannot receive other types of body therapies.
  • Bowenwork’s gentle application makes it very easy on the practitioner and presents little risk of developing repetitive strain injuries and “absorbing” the effects of a client’s emotional and health issues, two situations that often contribute to burnout.
  • Bowenwork can be performed in many settings. No special equipment, lotions or oils are needed, and it is generally performed through lightweight clothing rather than on bare skin.

How Bowenwork started?

Thomas Bowen of Geelong, Australia was a self-trained osteopath who developed Bowenwork® over a period of several decades, working at first primarily with injured laborers and athletes. Bowen’s approach was to reset the tension in certain muscles and muscle groups by using a unique type of stretch-and-roll-through move, with specific pauses between sets of moves to give the body time to begin its response.

In the last years of his life, Bowen allowed several practitioners to observe him. He recognized only six of them as understanding his work. One of the six, Oswald (Ossie) Rentsch, developed notes to preserve and accurately represent Mr. Bowen’s work, and promised to make his work known around the world. Bowenwork is Rentsch’s interpretation of Bowen’s work.

Rentsch met the challenge of presenting Mr. Bowen’s work in a structured, teachable format with highly effective, easy-to-learn sets of procedures that address a wide range of conditions throughout the body. Today, Bowenwork (also know as Bowtech®) is taught in over 30 countries under the auspices of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (BTAA).

About Tom Bowen, Father of Bowenwork

Tom Bowen began developing Bowenwork in the 1950s, and continued to practice in Australia until his passing in 1982. According to a 1974 survey of alternative health practitioners performed by the Victoria government, Bowen was performing over 13,000 Bowenwork sessions per year. In over 85% of his cases, the problems for which his patients sought relief were resolved. Bowen also held free clinics for children, people with disabilities, and community service workers throughout his career.

While no one knows for certain how Tom Bowen discovered the precise locations and sequences of his “moves”, we do know that Bowenwork’s use of light pressure follows the Arndt-Schulze law, “which states that the body responds more deeply and positively to low-pressure stimuli than it does to painful strong stimuli. Tom Bowen discovered and employed this principle long before the Arndt-Schulze law had been formulated.

About the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia

The Bowen Thrapy Academy of Australia has been dedicated to the teaching of Bowenwork® since 1987.
American Bowen Academy

The pioneering work of the Academy, both in Australia and overseas, has seen the spread of Bowenwork to over 30 countries worldwide.

In 1976, Ossie and Elaine Rentsch began utilizing Mr. Bowen’s methods in their clinic in Hamilton, Victoria. They held their first Bowenwork (also know as Bowtech®) seminar in Perth, Australia in 1986, and founded the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (BTAA) the following year. By 1990 Ossie and Elaine Retsch were teaching full time throughout Australia. Now there are over 90 authorized instructors throughout the world.

To date, BTAA has taught well over 20,000 students worldwide. Many of these students reamin active in their practice, and many have been in practice over 20 years.

The academy continually works to refine and expand the teaching curriculum to include the latest research and best practices in order to maintain high standards for instructors and practitioner  traning. In addition, BTAA holds bi-annual, international conferenced that feature well-known speakers from the medical community and the community of BTAA instructors and practitioners.

Dr. Patrick Porter – 3 Easy Steps to Banish Bad Habits

Dr. Patrick Porter quote

“Often  we get out of life what we dwell on and focus on over and over again
in our mind versus what we truly want.”


Positive changes in one’s physiology by training our brain plus engaging in more positive thinking =

positive physical, emotional and behavioral change resulting in healthier living.

Benefits of Brain Tap Training

If you’re reading this, chances are you already know that meditation is great for quieting the mind and helping you focus on your goals. Did you also know that meditation practices can change your genetic makeup for the better?

Feeling constantly sad and depressed can turn on genes that can make us physically sick and more prone to infections and disease. On the flip side, relaxation and mindful meditation can turn off those genes and activate ones that help us heal and fight infection.
In an Institute of Science in Society report from 2014, they report the findings from several studies examining the effects of meditation on our genetic makeup. They found that meditation and creating the relaxation response in the body can actually change our gene structure for the better.

MIND OVER BODY
The first study used gene expression profiles to probe the effects of meditation on a small group of Qigong practitioners against a control group. The Qigong group showed a difference in 250 genes as compared to the control group.

RELAXATION RESPONSE CHANGES GENES
In the second study discussed, gene expression changes triggered by the relaxation response were examined. In this study a total of 2209 genes were deferentially expressed between the study group and the control group. The results suggest that gene expression changes in certain groups indicates a greater capacity to respond to stress and its detrimental effects and it did not matter what type of relaxation response was practiced–only that it was practiced.

MEDITATION AND STRESS
The third study investigated changes in genetic expression with a group of 42 practitioners of yoga and 42 controls. Similar to the second study, it was found that practitioners were better genetically equipped to respond to environmental stress.
The studies cited in this article suggest that meditative practice gives rise to genetic changes consistent with improving your response to environmental stress, stronger immunity and improved antioxidant stress–and that the changes can happen rather quickly, sometimes within hours.
The only problem is, meditation is hard and most people give up before reaping these rewards. Fortunately, you have the BrainTap headset available to you, making mindful meditation and relaxation easy and enjoyable. You simply press a button, sit back, close your eyes and relax. You’re not only strengthening your mind and achieving your goals, but you’re also improving your genetic ability to respond to the Super Stress we are plagued with in today’s society.

For more information and to experience the benefits of the BrainTap headset and programs, speak with your practitioner at Health Naturally today.

Yours in Health,

Health Naturally! to provide Resonance Repatterning services

Beth Barbeau - MidwifeBeth Barbeau, BS, has been a Resonance Repatterning practitioner for over 25 years.  She also is mom of two teen boys. With over 30 years of experience in the field of birth and infant/child care, she is also a Midwife, Childbirth & Breastfeeding Educator, and on the Faculty of the Holistic Doula program at the Naturopathic Institute in Mt. Pleasant.

Resonance Repatterning has been called an energy work;  it’s a chance to check in through applied kinesiology (“muscle testing”) with our body-mind system, and literally change our resonance.   Everything has a frequency or an energy pulsation, from music, to light,  even our thoughts!   And when we change that frequency (or the “note”) of our beliefs,  we can change our experience.

Since we attract and experience that with which we’re ‘in-sync’, it’s very powerful to identify & transform our resonance from de-energizing beliefs or statements,  to being “in-sync” with that which is life-enhancing or energizing.

It’s a most efficient & elegant process, and is unique in bringing transformation WITHOUT re-traumatizing.  And since Repatterning can address the unconscious realms as well, it often brings healing shifts to the many life beliefs formed from non/pre-verbal times, such as from events occurring prenatally or in the first years of life.  Let’s spend an hour together soon, and see what YOU how you might like to ‘spiral up!’


Beth Barbeau“Though I was raised in Michigan, after College in 1990 I moved to New Mexico. After two years of struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts, and a debilitating mental state, I was diagnosed with serious Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD). I worked very hard on myself in every way – from counseling to 12-Step Programs to acupuncture, with only the most minimal improvements. The State of Michigan declared me permanently disabled, saying that I would never earn a living, and in their concern – waived all my student loans! A short while later my care team lovingly dragged me to one of Founder Chloe Wordsworth’s early presentations on Repatternings, and although I wasn’t entirely sure what it all meant, it felt very right. I had a few sessions a month as I could afford them, and within three months found myself emerging from a dark place feeling strong and increasingly capable. I accepted a new sales position, and quickly felt confident traveling the country opening sales offices, recruiting and training new workers in very high energy and visible work. This couldn’t have been a bigger change, and in such a short time! My life has only grown more healthy and fulfilled since, and I’m tremendously grateful for Chloe’s work that has brought growth and relief of suffering to so many.

It’s been my pleasure to train in Resonance Repatterning over the years, using it to help people in their lives, addictions, parenting, and many small and large life issues. It’s wonderful to have another tool to help us shift those spots that are stuck, those areas we all have in our lives where we visit and revisit the same behavior patterns again & again in our lives. I can’t imagine where I’d be without it.”

– Beth Barbeau


“To me this is life-changing work, I am only getting better! It feels GOOD to feel like myself again!

Other people were cluttering my mind. Repatterning is like being set free of my own debilitating thoughts.  I was listening but not hearing, and this has freed up my mind. After only one repatterning I’ve been able to get my feelings across, even during stressful holiday family gatherings, clearly expressing myself and being heard much better. It’s eye-opening that you can be in control of your feelings and reactions, and to feel whole again.”

WHAT IS BOWENWORK

Mary Anne Malek

Bowenwork is hands-on healthcare. It consists of sequences of rolling movements of the practitioner’s thumbs or fingers over precisely located sites on the body followed by waiting periods. These movements serve to signal the body to remember how to heal a variety of health issues.

Bowenwork helps the body remember how to heal. The specific objectives may vary, but there is always focus on relaxation, reduction of the “fight or flight response”, and engagement of the body’s perfect pattern memory for the area that is in pain, contracted or otherwise out of healthy balance.

Bowenwork provides gentle and profoundly effective signals to the brain for healing and recovery through the stimulation of special receptors in the tendons, muscles and ligaments of the body. These stimuli can result in deep relaxation, resetting of muscular tension and range of motion, lymph drainage, pain and inflammation reduction and pain relief. It can be used on ages- from babies to the elderly and frail for the extremely fit and the sedentary or debilitated. Bowenwork is gentle in application, partnering with the body for healing.
