A single session will be effective and allow you to experience the results of this work. It is most effective to have 3-5 sessions.
I would suggest you be in a private spot where you will not be disturbed during your session. Make sure you are well hydrated. Have a glass of water within your reach.
"The body has to process every emotion that is experienced. A normal, healthy emotional experience is when you feel the emotion and let it go right then and there, and the processing is done immediately. When an emotion becomes trapped, the body does not go through this procession period and is unable to let the emotion go on its own. When you release an emotion with the Emotion Code, the body is finally allowed to go through this processing period-or healing period, which usually lasts for a day or so. About 20% of the time, people will notice "symptoms" of processing, such as: emotional sensitivity, crying, sleeplessness, a need for more sleep, vivid dreams, etc. Very rarely, an exacerbation of physical or emotional symptoms occurs, but like all processing it should last only about day or maybe two. Most people tend to feel lighter and happier after an emotional release if this doesn't occur right after the release it usually occurs after the procession period is over with." - Dr. Bradley Nelson
