When stored or blocked emotions are released through touch or other physical methods, there is a clearing of our internal pathways, which we experience as energy. (Pert, Candace, PhD. Molecules of Emotion. p 276. NY:Scribner, 1997.)

Emotions are an inner source of energy, influence, and information. They are inherently neither good nor bad. What you do with the information and energy they produce makes the difference. Being conscious of your emotional states provides valuable flexibility of response. (Cooper, Robert K., PhD., and Ayman Sawaf. Executive EQ. p 12-13. NY:Grosset/Putnam 1997.)

Emotions are a field of energy. They are everywhere in the body and the brain. (Pert, Candace, PhD. Molecules of Emotion (Audiocassettes). NY:Simon & Schuster Audio Division, 1997.)

Emotional energy works at a higher speed than thought energy. (Childre, Doc and Howard Martin. The HeartMath Solution. p 137-138. CA:Harper SF, 1999.)

Alternative healers refer to energy, and associate it with the release of emotion and the restoration of health. This mysterious energy is actually the free flow of information carried by the biochemicals of emotion, the neuropeptides and their receptors. (Pert, Candace, PhD. Molecules of Emotion. p 276-277. NY:Scribner, 1997.)
