Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your professional journey?
Hi, I’m Juanita Ecker. I am passionate about helping others. A few years ago, I discovered the power of EFT, (Emotional Freedom Techniques) a tapping technique that reduces stress and calms the nervous system. Recently, I was introduced to the Emotion Code and Body Code System. A friend asked me if I would like to try it; I was blown away by the results I was having. I decided to advance my skills and go for certification. Learning and applying EFT and the Body Code System has been life-changing for me.
I have suffered with back pain for over 40 years. I spent time addressing the core issues that contributed to my back pain. I uncovered those painful emotions from childhood that I didn’t want to feel. Like many others, I grew up in an environment where expressing how you feel was frowned upon. So, I shoved them down into my body. Once I released those trapped emotions, my back started feeling better. I was thrilled. I no longer have the back pain that was my constant companion all those years.
I have a Bachelors degree in sociology and a Masters degree in communication. For the past 20 years, I was a coach and corporate trainer in professional image and business etiquette. I coached executives on their professional presence and empowered these individuals to make changes in their behavior. My column, “Image Matters” was a regular feature in the Business Review.
I have published articles in local and national publications; I have been featured on radio and television interviews and am the author of the book “Image Management: Image & Etiquette Tips for the Business Professional”. After leaving corporate training, I was in sales for a few years, and now, I have embarked on a new journey where I can make a difference in the lives I touch.
What are the principles behind Emotion Code and Body Code?
The Emotion Code is an energy technique that releases trapped emotions, inherited emotions, heart walls, negative energies, and imbalances from the body. Often our current issues are a reflection of the unresolved negative emotions that are stored in our body from childhood. The reactions you had from painful memories in the past can block your energy from flowing freely.
When something sad, traumatic, or scary happens, if we don’t process and release those uncomfortable emotions associated with that experience, the negative emotions become trapped in the body. Those trapped negative emotions can create imbalances. Releasing those trapped emotions could create a dramatic shift; aches and pains may decrease, physical symptoms might disappear and overall health could improve.
The Body Code is an energy-balancing system that could uncover the root cause of your issues. We use muscle testing, to ask the subconscious “yes” or “no” questions. The idea behind muscle testing is that yes/no questions can access the subconscious mind and it allows us to get immediate answers regarding your health and well-being. The muscle testing has been found to be useful in uncovering the energetic imbalances that are contributing to the challenges you are having, and it guides us to what the body needs at this time.
Once the trapped emotions or energetic imbalances are identified, the Body Code System is designed to remove them. Even though there are no guarantees, clients have reported that releasing the unresolved emotions and correcting the imbalances have drastically improved their life. Clients report that physical symptoms may start to get better, their health might improve and their relationships may begin to thrive.
How can you help people who are dealing with someone who drives them crazy, irritates them, or constantly makes them mad?
I help people ease the tension in a strained relationship to change the dynamics, transform any problems and create a positive shift, so that the person who used to push their buttons, no longer drives them crazy.
For example, when working on projects with people at work, conflicts may arise due to differing opinions on how best to solve certain problems within the company structure. Maybe there are underlying issues that get in the way of productively working with certain individuals. Using the Emotion Code helps reduce tension and resentment towards these individuals, promoting better communication while still making sure everyone knows exactly where they stand regarding certain issues— which could potentially cause problems later down the road if left unchecked! This technique also helps with making decisions because it reduces confusion and indecision due to unresolved feelings from past experiences being triggered in the present moment.
I worked with a woman who always felt that her boss was not treating her fairly at work. She felt as though she was being overlooked for better opportunities and projects that she was capable of doing.
Sure enough, there were some triggers from her past around her strained relationship with her brother. We did some work and once we released those unresolved emotions from the events in the past that were triggering those feelings, her relationship with the boss shifted for the better. She was pleasantly surprised how clearing the issues with her brother helped improve her situation at work. She commented to me that now the manager is open to her opinion, has a good working relationship with her, and welcomes her input.
A strained relationship could be with a family member, an ex-spouse, a colleague, a boss, a friend, or a neighbor. When we remove the unresolved emotions that are triggering the negative charge you are feeling when interacting with this person, the relationship shifts for the better.
You also work with pets. How is working with pets different than working with humans?
Pets also have emotions from sad, scary, or traumatic events in the past. These unprocessed emotions may cause an imbalance in their body. Releasing trapped emotions for a pet is no different than releasing them for a human. Once we release them, the body can shift to being more in balance.
What other services do you offer?
Using the various energy techniques, I am able to eliminate emotional eating, remove food cravings and stop binge eating.

Is there anything else about your work that you’d like to share and that we haven’t covered?
The Emotion Code and Body Code can be used to get rid of old wounds and emotional baggage. We all deal with negative emotions at one time or another. The negative emotions you are feeling in the present are often traced back to events that happened in your childhood. Life experiences that were emotionally damaging for the child can create self-defeating patterns of thought or behavior in the adult. Your reactions to life’s challenges might have affected how you view the world. Memories that were painful could impact the beliefs you created about yourself, the choices you make, or the chances you are willing to take.
Like many, you may have been conditioned to deny, repress or ignore those unwanted feelings, trapping them in your body. What would it feel like to get rid of the emotional baggage you have been carrying all your life? I can help you with that. I’ll identify and quickly release the negative emotions that are contributing to the challenges you are having.
If parts of your life are not working, there is probably an underlying belief or behavior pattern that is stopping you from getting what you want. I can help you shift those core beliefs and behaviors that are no longer serving you. I have a talent for eliminating the self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back, the behaviors that aren’t producing the results you hoped for, and the negative thoughts or emotional baggage that prevent you from moving forward.
One of my gifts is getting to the root cause of the issue. I really listen to what you are sharing, ask in-depth questions, and lead you to discover those unresolved emotions that are running your life. I bring sensitivity and gentle compassion to your situation. My goal is to help you uncover those negative emotions, release them and give you a tool for personal improvement in your life.
