Changes in Self-Reported Depression, Anxiety and Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptomatology from the Emotion Code Energy Healing Modality


Gelb Y1*, Castaneda S2, Castaneda L2, and Allison-Aipa T3

Objective: Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and anxiety are on the rise in America. The current study was the first of its kind,
highlighting the effects of the Emotion Code, and contributed to the research on alternative healing.
Materials and Methods: This research evaluated whether the EC healing modality had a significant impact on a population of 146 participants.
Individuals completed pre- and post-treatment assessments measuring depression, anxiety and PTSD symptomatology, as well as sociodemographic
characteristics. The measures utilized were self-report questionnaires including: the PTSD Checklist for DSM-5 (PCL-5), Zung Anxiety Scale, and
Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9); they were administered pre-treatment and post-treatment and the scores were compared. The treatment
administered is called The Emotion Code, which is a modality that utilizes manual muscle testing and energy healing to access the subconscious
mind that locates trapped emotions in the body and releases them with the use of intention.
Results: Results show significant decreases in symptomatology in all three mental health categories. These results suggest that the EC healing
method may be a useful tool in aiding to decrease reported symptoms in the areas of anxiety, PTSD, and depression.
Conclusion: This was the first study of its kind, and future studies should be conducted to replicate the results, and compare a treatment group
with a comparable control group.
