Have you ever talked out a certain stressful situation, and you continue to come back to the same problem, always talking it out and having the same triggers?
Maybe you temporarily feel better after talking it out but why does it keep coming back with an uneasiness in the gut or heaviness in the chest?
As if it's just waiting under the surface, waiting to be triggered again. That's because talking only stays on the mental level of processing, whereas the underlying energetic charge (thoughts, sensations, emotions and feelings) that is perpetuating the trigger is stuck within the body, in our fascia, which creates contraction in the tissue, organs and cells - thus causing pain, tension and if carried long enough - eventually disease.
The reason why we always feel triggered is because our soul is searching for the unconditional love that it deserves to have for the trigger to be witnessed and heal from it.
So what is Neo Emotional Release?
It is an unconditional loving, safe container for you to be who you truly are, with nowhere to go, no one to become, and nothing to do. Most of us live in the future or the past, rather than the present moment, this distracts the mind to prepare for the future, based on the predicted past, creating a dissociation from our bodies and the emotions within. This keeps us trapped in repeating the same cycles of problems over and over again.
With this knowledge, we can understand that symptoms in the body are simply a direct expression of an aspect of consciousness that is trapped in the past. This trap is simply a part of us that is a holding pattern of blocked energy. Not only is this blockage of energy buried within the body but it is a direct reflection in our lives and the choices we make.
With this profound understanding, we call on Awakened Psychosomatics, connecting the bodymind systems to the soul as a whole system.
This includes all holistic healing modalities into one very powerful and profound session of magic of meeting your parts deemed unlovable and unwitnessable into healing. Including: hypnosis, breathwork, containment, catharsis, bodywork, somatic experiencing and conscious awareness.
Why does this work?
I created this container to welcome yourself to witness everything you ever were and are, so healing can occur. Healing is a result of witnessing reality as it truly is. Our bodies are always striving for healing itself, all the body needs is permission and energy. This is where the therapist comes in to create permission and increase the energy of the nervous system with their presence.
When we get presented with a stressful situation that makes us feel anything but calm and connected, our mind takes us into the past as a defense mechanism to survive like we had in the past and when the mind doesn’t have the awareness of the defense mechanism, it does everything it can from allowing ourselves from feeling those heavier emotions connected to the defense mechanism like anger, sadness, unworthiness, shame and guilt. When we are always suppressing and repressing these emotions, a blockage of energy flow in our bodies gets stuck, this is when dis-ease occurs causing even more stress.
There is a saying from the founder of Neo Emotional Release “There are no problems, only emotions that you don’t want to feel” - David Manning
We can come into these areas of contraction in a safe space with conscious awareness to subtly allow whatever emotion/wound feels most alive in the present moment and needs witnessing. When we lovingly witness all our parts that we had deemed unlovable in the past - this is when the mind can see the emotion for what it really is without judgment, the body is allowed to somatically (cellularly) re-experience the emotions and release it. With guidance into the unmet need behind the wound and reprogram on an energetic level to integrate with the mind.
Benefits of Neo Emotional Release
This release that can occur in the sessions is giving your body more freed up space to be open and will cause an expansion of your true Self that was previously buried underneath the heaviness.
Because facilitating this work can not go too long but only can go so deep in one session, it is best for people to have multiple sessions, so it can be unpacked in subtle layers.

It’s Summer! We are officially half way through the New Year and for anyone who made resolutions, you are either going strong or those babies got ditched already. Didn’t make resolutions? That’s cool. How are you doing with healthy habits? Are you finding it easy to make good choices or are things a bit of a challenge? New Year’s is not the only time we can resolve to make a change. You can reboot your mindset anytime and shift into healthier habits now.
Here are some tips to RESET YOUR MINDSET:
#1. Give yourself some grace and some space
Life happens. Like, real life, real stress, real complex shizz. And no matter how focused you are, real life makes you make choices that are not always aligned with your holistic health goals. But here’s the thing about goals – they are just a guidepost that you are looking forward to reaching. Nothing else. Goals are a way to anchor your progress and motivate you to take action.
If you made goals in January and are struggling to get in gear to reach them, cut yourself some slack and see how it feels to look at things in smaller pieces. By chunking a big goal down into smaller steps, you may find that you can breathe easier and have less stress about it.
#2. Gratitude Check-In
Even on the worst days, I bet you can find one thing that is a blessing in your life. In fact, when you start to REALLY think about how things are going, you may find that your list is longer than you expected.
Doing a Gratitude Check-In can help you get grounded in the good things that are part of your life.
Did you get out in the fresh air this week? Is your coffee cup awesome? Do your yoga pants fit just right? Are your fuzzy socks keeping your feet cozy? Do you have a phone a friend option? Gratitude lists do not have to be about BIG things. In fact, it’s often the little things that help us get through the day.
Gratitude has studied health benefits. A gratitude/mindfulness practice can ease stress perception, lower cortisol (a stress hormone), improve sleep and ease digestive upset.
#3. Get Rid of Mental Clutter
Ditch the stinking thinking. It creates monkey mind and easily pulls people off track. This can happen if you are trying to do too much at one time or if the things on your list are not reasonable.
In the same way that physical clutter can make a space feel chaotic, mental clutter can create a sense of anxiety, panic or unrest.
Using mindfulness exercises to stay present, or setting aside a little time for daily stillness and meditation can help you brush out the cobwebs and dust bunnies and organize the files in your mind.
#4. Stop looking at Social
You are a unicorn. You are a completely amazingly unique being who is beyond compare. Stop seeking validation from social media if you find yourself there. No amount of likes, follows and shares will equal an ounce of your innate self-worth.
By comparing yourself to others on social and/or seeking validation there, you can actually stress yourself out and trigger a cascade of physical and mental harm. Social stress is a leading cause of anxiety and depression in teens and young adults. In business, if you are an entrepreneur, you likely feel the same. To reset your mindset here, detach the worth of yourself or your business or project from the social interaction or response. You are ALWAYS of value. Your business offerings or ventures may be incredible too, but the audience on social may not be reflecting the truth.
Sometimes it can help to log off or limit social media time so you have less exposure to distractions that can discourage, de-motivate or make you feel off course.
#5. Reframe Your Game
Some people will tell you to “just think positive” and while that can help to shift you out of a funk, it is not always realistic. Instead, see how it feels to flip the script.
The next time you are ruminating about missing a target or flubbing up, reframe the issue so you can flip the script. For example, if you are trying to lose weight and have been dialing in your nutrition, but you ate pizza last night and the scale did not budge, you might be saying mean things to yourself. Instead, say something like, “I am so fortunate that I can respond to my needs and nourish my body with flexibility and understanding.”
When you flip or reframe negative responses, you empower your mind with a positive alternative that does not trigger the release of cortisol and add to your stress. You also flex your resilience “muscle” and over time, you will appreciate your ability to shift effortlessly as your needs change.
