My journey through life has been a roller coaster. I have struggled with chronic pain, self-doubt, confidence, depression, anxiety, anger, motivation, worthiness, marital issues, family members with addictions, and giving so much to others. I have been so exhausted on all levels that I have questioned who I am and what I enjoyed in my life.
I have asked myself after taking some hard blows, “how am I supposed to get back up and try again with any motivation to keep working on my relationships and goals and find joy and excitement for life again?”
Can you relate?
Hi, my name is Teresa Porter!
I am a dedicated wife, mother of three, and a business owner living My Dream Life. Despite everything I listed above, I can now honestly say I LOVE my life; it brings me Joy! My husband and I just celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. I am very grateful to have had my best friend by my side all these years and for his love, support, and being Mr. Dad while I built my business. I wouldn’t be who I am without him!
Being in the wellness industry for 20+ years, I’ve been exposed to many methods and modalities to create well-being and improve overall health. I’ve tried several to be proactive through the hard times in my life, which helped me navigate through the roadblocks with a little less pain, more clarity, and motivation to keep going. When I struggled with specific issues, I felt like I couldn’t shake some of the emotions, and I knew it was keeping me from moving forward. I tried talk therapy, hard daily workouts, and several other things that offered temporary relief.
It wasn’t until I started seeing a practitioner who performed several emotional release techniques, including The Emotion Code, that I began to feel better daily. I was amazed by how quick and efficient the sessions were and how much she could release within 60-minutes. She helped me release deep sadness, and emotional hurt connected to my immediate family and began to relieve my physical pain. I began to move forward with clarity and excitement, which improved my marriage, mended my relationships, and, most importantly, my relationship with myself.
Through my healing process, I decided to learn the technique and add it to my already working practices: yoga and Massage. The more I continued to work with my clients, the more I realized how much of their physical pain was linked to their trapped emotions, so I created The Porter Method, which elevates the Emotion Code technique to heightened levels of awareness.

The Emotion Code™
The energy of past emotions can literally become trapped in your body, affecting your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
How does Emotion Code work?
The Emotion Code is a technique developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson, and it works by literally getting rid of emotional baggage. Using muscle testing, we quickly identify and release hidden trapped emotions, which are harmful emotional energies from negative past events.
What is Emotion Code healing?
The Emotion Code is the simplest way to get rid of your emotional baggage, helping you feel freer, happier and healthier! … Dr. Nelson coined the phrase “trapped emotions” – negative energies that become trapped in the body during intense emotional events.
What is a Trapped Emotion?
Trapped emotions are the root cause of emotional blocks. Trapped emotions are negative feelings that get stuck inside of you as a result of you feeling an intense emotion. They can become trapped during a traumatic or emotionally difficult situation.

“Emotion Code changed my life!”
My troubled health journey began when I was about eleven years old. My healing journey started the day I had my first massage with Teresa. At the time, I had been suffering from chronic widespread pain and illness for 13 years. I had seen countless doctors, ranging in specialties from chiropractors, massage therapists, homeopathic, nutritionists, physical therapists, psychologists, and medical doctors of all types. They all helped manage my pain for a time; however, in some cases, made it worse. Anything I could think of to manage pain, fatigue, inflammation, depression, anxiety, trauma – I tried it. Or so I thought. That is when the Emotion Code came into my life by way of Teresa. When I first met Teresa, it was my first massage appointment. I shared that I had a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. I had been experiencing widespread pain for years and had tried various avenues for managing my illness, most recently moving to Arizona for the change in the climate. We then discussed a plan for me as to what she would work on based on our conversation, and I got on the massage table.
As we continued talking, we clicked immediately. Shortly after beginning to work on me, Teresa was inclined to share that she felt like my pain may be emotional pain and explained that she felt that pain was on me. There was something different about my pain, and she could feel there was something deeper behind the physical pain. I remember being stunned and quickly replying with “Well, yes. You’re dead on. I already know this, but how do you? What do you mean you can feel it?” I remember thinking, “How could you possibly feel that? We just met?” She explained, and I began to open up.
The truth was that when I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I was told that it generally begins from either a physical trigger or an emotional one. I was young when it started and had been doctoring for years. My family and I knew there was an emotional trigger that was the onset of my illness. Beyond that, everyone wanted to medicate, supplement, inject, do major surgery, or try the next new thing. Everyone had their theory as to how I should manage the symptoms I was experiencing. They all agreed there was no cure and that we needed to find the best way to manage the pain and other symptoms. Therapists helped me talk through all of the pain and suffering that I was experiencing along the way, and I was very grateful for those voices in my life. They were the voices that kept me alive when the journey became dark with little hope for a life without pain or a cure.
Then another voice came into my life. It was Teresa’s as she immediately offered her professional opinion, her open-mindedness, her ideas, and a name for someone that did Emotion Code. She was mindful in her approach to provide me with another option. Although I had tried countless methods, both conventional and unconventional, there was something about that first meeting and Teresa’s intuition that left me feeling inspired and intrigued. In a place where I often felt skeptical about what the next person was going to recommend, I found the motivation to learn and take control of my health and healing instead. Teresa’s suggestion was an option I had never explored or considered.
I started by immediately reading the Emotion Code book by Dr. Bradley Nelson. I was fascinated by what I read and felt this was the right avenue to pursue. My first Emotion Code session changed everything for me. The many sessions that have followed have opened up a whole new path to healing for me. The dark cloud hanging over me has lifted, the emotional and physical pain has lessened, and true healing has been set in motion. I feel lighter, have more energy, and feel more worth all the while leaving behind the heavy pain that once weighed me down.
Surely there have been peaks and valleys in this healing journey, but mostly it has been a time of discovery, awareness, and immense growth. My life looks different, and my perspective is fresh, clear, more positive, and new. Although I have been working with another practitioner, Teresa has been alongside me encouraging me since day one as we learned more about Emotion Code together. Fast forward a few years to now, and you will find Teresa has started practicing Emotion Code herself. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to experience sessions with her, the woman who introduced me to Emotion Code in the first place. The woman who decided to trust her gut and share what she felt.
It has become so clear to me that there is a direct link between the physical symptoms we experience and the emotional and mental causes behind them; a link between the trauma we go through and the physical illnesses that may follow. Emotion Code changed my life. It moved the needle toward healing, and I whole-heartedly believe anyone and everyone could stand to try it. The beautiful combination of massage and Emotion Code, that’s just something you’ll have to experience for yourself as the possibilities for healing are endless!

“If she was able to help me at my personal level, then what could she do to help me transform my business as well” Johnathan Bengel
I met Teresa a couple of years ago at a yoga retreat and began seeing her for massage. After getting to know me, she thought I would be a good candidate for Emotion Code work. I had been dealing with an autoimmune disease over the last twelve years, which was exacerbated by the stresses of raising eight children, about half of whom are adopted. I also had childhood traumas that have weighed heavily on me.
Over the last nine months, the Emotion Code has helped me to release trapped emotions from the past, as well as be able to cope with the day-to-day challenges and conflicts much more relaxed. I’ve noticed reduced inflammation in my body, and I’m more clear-headed than I had been. I hadn’t even realized that I’d been absorbing the emotions of others around me, and The Emotion Code helped me to release those as well. During this time, a particularly acute stress situation came up, but due to the work Teresa did with me, I was able to release it and have a different mindset. Even my kids have worked with Teresa, and it has benefitted them greatly.
Emotion Code is a straightforward process. Even if you only have, but a few minutes, your body can release a handful of trapped emotions it may be holding onto. I’ve enjoyed the benefits of it a lot more than talk therapy and saw an immediate difference in how I feel. Teresa is easy to work with, and I’m glad she shared this excellent technique with me.
I have always been the type to suppress my emotions and put off self-care until I have reached a point of despair, hopelessness, and eventually depression. I do not like to be of any inconvenience to people around me and aim to please my family and friends whom I love. I never want to feel like I’m letting anyone down. I work in the emergency department, a high-stress environment, and often encounter patients who have experienced traumatic injuries or face terminal illnesses. I am passionate about my job and truly am rewarded by being there for my patients under challenging times. Still, I realized that I had shown loyalty to everyone around me except for myself. I have high standards for myself, and it was clear I did not give myself enough credit for my accomplishments.
During the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, a colleague referred me to Teresa to take hold of my mental health and dive into these feelings that I was constantly suppressing. I had never heard of emotion code, and although I was unsure how this would help me during my first couple of sessions, I remained open-minded. Eventually, I started to feel the results and self-reflection from this experience. I grew to be more aware of my emotions, and Teresa made my feelings feel valid and encouraged me to push myself to dig deeper into the past experiences that I had no clue were impacting me. I would highly recommend anyone who might share a similar situation or may have unpacked trauma to try the emotion code and give yourself the love and respect we all deserve.
“So much of our pain is connected to the way we feel to our emotions to our thoughts.” Mathew Blades
I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in Teresa’s coaching program (Unplugged). It’s pushed me to pursue things that up until now I’ve really only thought about doing like learning how to do reiki. I have also learned a lot about myself throughout the entire process and really delved into my feelings, my desires and dreams as well as my needs. There were many key things throughout the course that helped me to recognize negative patterns and replace them with positive ones. I have to stress that learning to focus on myself and my needs in a healthy way has been monumental for me.
I also can’t say enough about the emotion code and how much that has helped me. I feel like I have reached & released emotions that were so deep inside of me that I wasn’t even aware that they were there. I’m getting to the actual deep down core of what was causing my condition. As scary and painful (both mentally and physically) as that may be, I know that it’s necessary and I’m prepared to do the work. I know that this entered my life at this precise time because I was ready for it. It’s certainly not for the weak. It’s hard work yet it’s still easier than a lot of the things that I have tried. The sheer joy & lightness that I’ve felt after a session cannot be explained. If this is something you’re considering then there’s a reason and you should investigate that. I’m so grateful for this experience. I couldn’t have imagined results like this.
I have been coming to Teresa for a little over a year and have had three emotion code sessions. I didn’t know what to expect for my first session but was excited to see how it could help me. During the emotion code I can feel the energy coming out and I know Teresa could too. Tears ran down my face from letting the emotions go. After leaving that session I felt so much lighter. It is hard to describe but it was that last bit of energy that is locked away that can’t be touched by counseling. It was an amazing experience and Teresa made it so easy to open up.
I’ve been doing Emotion Code (EC) work with Teresa since September of 2019. It has helped immensely as stressors have overwhelmed my system from time to time.
Yesterday was one of those times. I’ve been having a really hard time at work with a narcissistic, bullying, discriminatory boss, and efforts to elevate the situation have only made things worse for me. I’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety and hopelessness about the situation, which I explained to Teresa yesterday during our EC call.
We released about 6 emotions related directly to that situation, causing such a physical and emotional release for me! Whereas before the call, I’d been feeling lethargic and withdrawn, I felt lighter and happier and definitely much more hopeful after the call.
It is not the first time I’ve had this experience with Teresa and EC – just the most recent. At times when I’ve truly felt things were too dark to move through, EC has parted the clouds and allowed the sunlight in. I know that EC is working, but it is because Teresa is very skilled, continually seeks to expand her knowledge base – even to research specific issues I’m having and is empathic. She really has helped me when other modalities have not. And not to say that CBT doesn’t work, but I have achieved more with Teresa in 12 months than I have in traditional talk therapy over 11 years.
If you’re on the fence about EC, I hope you will try it. It has been life-saving for me.
