What is Emotional Complex Clearing?

Simply put, ECC is the process of discovering and eliminating acquired or created trauma or stress stored somewhere in the human system. That system consists of the mind, body, spirit, intelligence, emotions, feelings, behaviors, or any other identifiable area that may store the negative energy. I am a self-taught practitioner of this technique which is documented and taught by Dr Brad May of Serenity Systems.

I first found Dr. May back in 1998 while doing an Internet search on kinesiology. I was intrigued by what I learned on his site about ‘Emotional Complex Clearing’. It seemed so similar to what I had learned from other practitioners of stress management a few years earlier. His technique seems to provide the same results of stress relief. I ordered his book, Muscle Testing Miracles and gave it a preliminary review.

Like many others, Dr. May also uses muscle testing to discover the roots of emotional distress. His clearing technique involves holding the forehead with one hand and gently stroking the spine with the index and middle finger on each side of the spinal cord. The premise is that emotional trauma is stored along the spinal column. He quotes Candace Pert, Molecules of Emotion, 1997, as a source of possible evidence for this. However, I believe he innovated the technique on his own and found support for it later.

I took his book with me on a vacation that year, read it thoroughly, and decided to get his video course. I’m glad I did. It was well worth the price. I highly recommend his video course on E.C.C. While the technique of clearing the past emotional traumas is different from what others have taught, his taped sessions clearly demonstrate that the results are indeed the same. The videos and accompanying workbook are both professional and easy to understand.

Dr. May demonstrates that he is comfortable with using muscle testing and competent in getting answers through this process. He works through a variety of traumas in the same manner a detective works through a case until the answer to the problem at hand is clearly revealed. He then effectively demonstrates the clearing technique with the evident emotional release. Dr. Brad May is a professional and his book, videos and accompanying workbook are first rate.

More to come in the next post on some basic assumptions of Dr May's technique.
