The Short Version: Dr. Bradley Nelson is a holistic chiropractor who pioneered two energy-based healing systems: the Emotion Code and the Body Code. He created a simple template to help singles and couples rid themselves of negative emotions and open their hearts to love. He has spent over 30 years sharing his methods and transforming how people think, feel, and connect on a fundamental level. Over 5,000 practitioners around the world have followed his lead and taken his online certification courses to learn the secrets of energy healing.

Dr. Bradley Nelson was at a crossroads in life in 1988. On one hand, he could enter the MBA program at Brigham Young University and become a businessman. On the other hand, he could follow his childhood passion for healing and become a holistic chiropractor. Dr. Brad and his wife, Jean, made up a pros and cons list, but he still couldn’t make up his mind.

After praying on it and sleeping on it, Dr. Brad had a revelation. He woke up filled with a strong feeling that being a healer was the greatest good he could do.

“My mind was overflowing with thoughts of service to mankind and to humanity,” he said. “It’s impossible for me to describe what this experience was like.”

Dr. Brad Nelson is a holistic chiropractor, bestselling author, and expert in energy healing.

Just like that, Dr. Brad realized it was his sacred calling to become a holistic healer. He attended the Life Chiropractic College West in San Lorenzo, California, where he graduated with honors.

In his private practice as a chiropractor, Dr. Brad saw everyone from newborn babies to grandparents. He used his skills to heal their bodies, but he began to wonder if he could go deeper and heal the emotional issues often at the root of the pain.

“These emotional energies become stuck in our bodies after we go through an intense emotional event — like a breakup,” he told us. “Those emotions can be so powerful that they can become trapped in the body. It all works because we are made of energy. The body itself is made of energy.”

Drawing from years of experience and subtle knowledge, Dr. Brad developed a simple system to use healing energies to rid people of negative emotions trapped inside them. In 1998, he began teaching seminars to share his insights, and in 2007 he published a book detailing “The Emotion Code.”

Today, the brokenhearted can find counseling and healing by browsing the free self-help resources available on Dr. Brad’s website. He has put together instructive online courses, videos, and articles to guide people on their journeys, and he also supports a growing global network of practitioners who use this holistic system to heal the body, mind, and heart.

“I’ve always I had this driving need to help people and to empower people to help themselves,” he said. “It’s an amazing thing. I really believe this is my mission in this world.”

Trapped Emotions Create “Heart-Walls”

After emotionally painful or traumatic experiences, many people lock all their negative feelings inside them. Some people build a wall out of fear and anger, and that barrier keeps love from getting inside. Dr. Brad calls this a Heart-Wall, and he said it’s incredibly common in both singles and couples. According to Dr. Brad, about 93% of people have a Heart-Wall holding them back from true, open-hearted human connection.

“The Emotion Code” offers a step-by-step guide on how to release negative emotions.

“Nine out of 10 people are walking around listening to the brain that’s in their head instead of the brain that’s in their hearts,” he explained. “To find their soul mate and manifest the blueprint of the life they’re capable of, they’ve got to get rid of that Heart-Wall.”

Singles and couples can start on a healing journey by finding a practitioner who is skilled in Dr. Brad’s Emotion Code or the Body Code systems. These professionals can open people’s minds to the healing energy within. After a few sessions, the holistic guides can release the client’s trapped emotions, so he or she can start fresh with a new, positive energy. This system helps people leave their emotional baggage behind and attract healthy relationships.

The Emotion Code and the Body Code can transform people’s outlooks on life and love that can lead to dramatic shifts in their emotional and physical well-being.

Some clients face serious emotional obstacles, including eating disorders and PTSD, and they find comfort in the healing energy espoused in Dr. Brad’s programs. If you feel stuck in a negative cycle, you can draw from the Emotion Code and the Body Code to get your head and your heart in the right place.

“When you put up a wall around your heart, it interferes with your ability to give and receive love, truly deeply connect with others,” he said. “The heart is really a second brain.”

Mastering Energy Healing in the Certification Program

Dr. Brad dives deeper into the secrets of energy healing in his online certification programs that train people to tap into their healing power. Nearly 5,000 people in 78 countries have gone through these six-month programs and become certified Emotion Code Practitioners or Body Code Practitioners. Many of these professionals use their skills to heal people remotely via video calls, and they enjoy the freedom of living and working anywhere in the world.

“Once you’ve mastered this system, you can release trapped emotions, clear heart walls, and, in many cases, change lives,” Dr. Brad said, “yet you may never actually meet your clients in person.”

Dr. Brad uses energy psychology to improve people’s health, happiness, and love lives.

Dr. Brad said massage therapists, marines, doctors, and full-time mothers have used these techniques to tap into the subconscious mind and release the negative emotions blocking them from love.

Once practitioners understand how to tap into the energy of the universe, they can connect on a deeper level and lead clients to a positive state of being. It can take as little as an hour to free people from guilt, heartache, conflict, and other trapped emotions.

“There is an energy in the universe,” Dr. Brad said. “You can call it whatever you want. Grace. God. Source energy. But there is this power in the universe that if you tap into it and ask for help, then you get that help.”

Dr. Brad aims to expand his certification program in the next few years and give people greater access to the transformational power of the Emotion Code and the Body Code.

Of course, you don’t have to earn a certification to use the Emotion Code on yourself and your loved ones. Countless people around the world use these techniques to get to the root of their pain and remove negative energy from their hearts and minds.

“Our work is based in the idea that the subconscious mind knows with the precise and perfect understanding what they really need and why it isn’t working,” Dr. Brad said. “The Emotion Code and Body Code tap into an incredibly powerful computer that is our subconscious mind.”

A Global Phenomenon Changes Lives

Dr. Brad found his calling as a leading expert in healing energy, and he has witnessed its power to change lives. For instance, one 38-year-old nurse visited his office because she was experiencing chronic neck pain.

He learned that she hadn’t dated in eight years and wasn’t open to love because of a bad breakup. With her permission, Dr. Brad took five minutes to clear away the negative emotions from her heart. When he was done, she said her neck pain was gone, and she left the office feeling good.

“This is a potentially life-altering book about a life-altering concept.” — Katrina in a review of “The Emotion Code”

Two weeks later, she came back to Dr. Brad and said she had met her childhood sweetheart and fallen in love all over again. He had been living just down the street from her for years, yet they hadn’t met until then.

The Emotion Code testimonials page is full of many similarly inspirational stories from people who say the system broke down their walls, took away their pain, and put them on a healing path.

“Dr. Nelson has the ability to make the complex simple, and to teach anyone these amazingly profound healing methods,” said a social worker named Gwen L. “This information has truly changed the direction of my life for the better.”

A woman in Italy wrote to Dr. Brad in 2015 to say she felt her husband was a new man after going through the Emotion Code. She said her husband was more cheerful and tender, and they had become closer as a couple after 10 years of marriage.

Motivational speaker Tony Robbins has written a foreword for the revised edition of “The Emotion Code,” and he endorses the energy healing system wholeheartedly. “I believe the discoveries in this book can change our understanding of how we store emotional experiences,” Tony wrote. “It is my hope that millions more will be led to use this simple tool to heal themselves and their loved ones.”

Dr. Brad said it’s humbling to have so many people supporting his endeavor to heal and teach people around the world.

“I always tell people thanking me ‘I just work here.’ It doesn’t have much to do with me — I’m just the teacher,” he said. “I really feel this whole mission of mine has been orchestrated from up above.”

Dr. Bradley Nelson Empowers the Brokenhearted to Heal

Since that fateful morning in 1988, Dr. Brad hasn’t wavered in his mission to spread healing energy around the world. He has conducted seminars, written books, crafted courses, and led one-on-one consultations to share his knowledge about the connection between the heart and the body.

Whether you’re getting over a breakup or experiencing marital strife, you can free yourself from negative energy by learning about the Emotion Code and the Body Code. These simple techniques remove trapped emotions from around the heart and give people the opportunity to start fresh in the dating scene.

“We believe that every single person on this planet has the innate gift — and the birthright really — to be able to heal themselves,” Dr. Brad said. “The Emotion Code teaches you the simplest ways to start taking back that power and that ability you have.”
