  • CUTV News Radio spotlights Tracy Durrant of Healing the Mind Body & Soul

    in Self Help

    Sandy, UT – All our stress and symptoms are our body’s way of letting us know there is something occurring within us that we are ready to heal and release. Whether the challenge we are experiencing shows up as emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual dis-ease, it can be found and released, thereby creating harmony and healing on a deep level, where permanent healing occurs.


    Tracy Durrant is an energy healer and founder of Healing the Mind Body & Soul, where she specializes in a unique modality known as The Emotion Code, a holistic form of healing that allows us to release the trapped emotions that prevent our mind, body and soul from moving forward in positive and healthy ways.


    “I was always drawn to energy healing but I never thought I would end up working in the field,” says Tracy. “I found the Emotion Code by surrendering to loving myself. I desire to help other people because I’ve seen it change my life in dramatic and profound ways.”


    According to Tracy, our subconscious mind holds every detail of our life’s experience. Trapped emotions are negative energies that distort the normal energy field of the body, creating pain as well as all manner of disease. These trapped emotions are also the driving force behind the unwanted patterns we seem to create and recreate in our daily lives. Through a combination of muscle testing and her intuitive skills, Tracy can identify our trapped emotions and release them through our energetic meridians.


    “These are people that are being called to take their own power back, their healing and their health back,” says Tracy. “Alternative medicine gives them the platform and the voice to do just that.”
