Heather Loucks of Broadalbin, NY is an independent Nikken Consultant and Naturopathic Reiki Master energy healer. I went to see her with an open mind and heart to experience her expertise first hand. I have never been seen by any kind of energy healer at all. I wasn't sure what to expect. So I kept an open mind in a way to not have preconceived expectations.
So you are asking, what is a Nikken Consultant? I wondered that too. I told her upon making my appointment that I felt like I was speaking a foreign language when booking my appointment. I didn't understand anything about Nikken. I said my friend had suggested I try the "Emotion Code". Heather suggested I visit online at www.drbradleynelson.com. On this website you will learn the basics and more of what Nikken and Emotion Code are.
The website reads, "By learning 'The Body Code System for Ultimate Energy Healing and Body Balancing System', you will gain tools to help yourself by releasing the blocks that hold you back from being totally healthy, from being successful in business, and from finding love and happiness in your life. You will be much better able to find and correct the underlying imbalances that are preventing you from having the health and happiness that may be currently avoiding you!
The reality is that you are a powerful being, fully capable of things that may lie far beyond your wildest dreams at this point. I will teach you in 'The Body Code System for Ultimate Energy Healing and Body Balancing' that you CAN heal, and that you CAN help yourself and those you love, in very easy and simple ways, that can help them to be free of all kinds of pain and suffering, both physically and emotionally."
At least I had some background before I set out on the appointment. When I arrived, Heather asked that I drink a glass of water she was offering. I thought to myself, that I wasn't thirsty enough to drink water but then she went on to say that this was not just tap water. It was part of her routine to help you cleanse your body and fuel it. She said she was using a Nikken product called PiMag Water Technology. It begins with a high-tech, multiple-stage filtration system based on natural materials to clean water without chemicals. It adds Nikken magnetic technology and ceramic elements that impart minerals to produce pi water, known in Asia for decades as “the water of life.” The result is a unique water system that is more environmentally sound, more cost-effective and more practical than commercially bottled water.
She continued to explain to me that in "The Emotion Code", she was taught by renowned holistic physician and lecturer Dr. Bradley Nelson who explains and teaches the inner workings of the subconscious mind. He reveals how emotionally-charged events from your past can still be haunting you in the form of “trapped emotions”; emotional energies that literally inhabit your body.
Heather explained how trapped emotions can create pain, malfunction and eventual disease. In addition, trapped emotions can exert a dramatic effect on how you think, the choices that you make, and how successful you will be.
She went on to explain how trapped emotional energies will often gather around the heart, creating a “Heart-Wall” that may block you from giving and receiving love freely.
"The Emotion Code" is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of unseen baggage. Releasing trapped emotions often results in the sudden disappearance of physical problems, self-sabotage, and recurring relationship difficulties. I thought wow, I never knew such therapies even existed. This is why I feel it is so important to learn as many new things as I can within the holistic realm and share it with you. If this can help me, perhaps it can help you too!
Now you are wondering where the Nikken part fits in? I was wondering that too. In Heather's advertisement in Sacandaga Sun Magazine it reads: "Nikken is a program to help maintain your health. They are products that are designed to help you breathe fresh air, drink clean water, enjoy sweet dreams and improve your lifestyle." You can learn more about the Nikken products via her website, www.pathwaysfordiscovery.org.
Trapped emotional energies are identified through muscle testing and released using magnetic healing via the body's energy pathways called meridians. It is a gentle, yet profoundly effective technique. Sessions are specifically targeted to whatever is not flowing in your life. Upon entering the therapy room, I noticed lots of green plants, soft melodic music playing, and was asked to remove my sneakers. I took of my sneakers and glasses and Heather asked me if I had anything metal in me or on me. I said, no, only my bra. She said that was ok, she could work around that. The room had a padded table set out as well as some lovely wicker chairs. She asked that I lay face down on the table that was really soft. My face lay in a special head rest where you can breathe freely and relax.
She asked if she could unhook my bra but leaving it on, she would be able to maneuver easily around it to perform the therapy by using a precision made, double magnetic roller. When an emotion is brought into the conscious brain, using kinesiology, it causes an imbalance in the governor meridian (the area that stores emotions in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture).
The specialized magnetic roller corrects the imbalance. As it travels down the back, the spinning magnets inside the roller generate a magnetic field that balances the energy flow in the meridian and the emotion is released Heather said. I asked, how can this help me? Heather stated, "the release of trapped emotions enables you to react more positively in difficult situations. It can reduce the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Physically, the release can alleviate symptoms aggravated by trapped emotions.
I lay there thinking what am I going to think about while this treatment happens. For me, my mind never shuts off. I lay there and began a personal meditation to completely relax myself to allow for the best treatment I could possibly receive. I felt very relaxed. When Heather was using the roller on my back it felt really good. It was close to what a massage would feel like. Then when she wasn't using the roller, she was placing her hands on my spine at various places up and down it. Her hands were very warm. Her hands by themselves I thought felt like a heating pad on my back. So that felt really good. In between the roller or her hands doing what they were doing, she was taking in deep breaths and letting them out and saying these numbers, which made no sense to me then. It was like she was asking her "higher power" for an answer for a particular number and when she received it, she would stop and begin all over again on a different spot on my spine. It just felt good all over. When she was done she asked me to roll over on my back and I just lay there with my eyes closed as I was so relaxed. I thought to myself, do I take a mini nap now? No, I couldn't do that...so I waited because I didn't know what was to come next.
Then I started to open my eyes and see what she was doing. She was waiting for me to open my eyes! She said, "Did you have a nice relaxing time?" Oh yea, I said. Next she had me sit up to gain my composure back and asked me if I'd like a copy of the work paper she had completed throughout the session. I said yes. She left briefly and returned with my copy which again looked so foreign to me. I asked what the numbers were on the sheet with these states of mood listed? She said those were the ages in which I experienced each event or condition. For example, on my sheet it read, "panic". And then it gave a number after it. She said that was the age in which something in my life created a lot of panic and that it was or has been hidden deep within my subconsciousness, and now it was released. I will feel better and that panic will be gone. The magnets released it from my body and her healing touch repaired any damage I had within my body from that panic period. I just thought, how amazing!
I am skeptical. I have to be honest in saying this right now because for me, this is all so new. I believe in alternative therapies so I am going to follow up on this article soon to report back how I feel. Heather said give myself between one and three days up to a month to feel the complete benefit of this. And I will.
I lay on the bed/table for about 45 minutes before the treatment concluded.
The most common reaction after trapped emotions have been released is the sense of a great weight having been lifted, a sense of lightness, happiness and contentment. Long term, the brain will process all the information formerly attached to the trapped emotions properly. It allows you to become the truly amazing person you were always meant to be, without being held back by your emotions." I'd recommend Heather Loucks for her skill and knowledge in this type of therapy. It's very relaxing and feels good. I was just in awe.
