I was introduced to Rebecca just bout a year ago. Rebecca’s husband reached out to a friend of mine and suggested that his wife might be able to help me on my holisitic healing journey. I set up an appointment and the moment I met Rebecca she immediately put me at ease. Rebecca is amazingly talented, passionate, compassionate and a serious Lady Boss who is on a mission to help others. Please welcome our friend Rebecca Packard, CBCP.
Q: Where are you from? Where do you call home?
A: I am originally from Andover, MA and now call Derry, NH my home.
Q: What do you do for “work”?
A: I am a Certified Emotion Code and Body Code Practitioner. I help woman release their emotional baggage without having to relive it.
Q: How long have you been doing this?
A: I have always lived a holistic lifestyle, however I have been doing this work for just under 3 years.
Q: How did you get started?
A: I got started in this work when I had my own life changing experience and saw that I could help people again through this modality. I have always been in the business of helping people, as I was an Emergency Medical Technician for 15 years. After being hurt and unable to return to my career. I lived in 10/10 pain for 4 years. Unable to take medications and not finding resolution with Western Medicine I had my prayers answered when I had my own personal experience with those results I knew I could help people again!
Q: What inspires and motivates you?
A: There are so many things that inspire me and motivate me. Helping people and conscious contribution are huge on my list. My family. Seeing the ripple effect that my work has on people and their families. Watching people bloom after they release!

A: Never compare yourself. Be true to you and find people who raise you up. Reach out to those that inspire you.
Q: What distracts you from your goals? How do you overcome those distractions?
A: Well there are quite a few things that distract me. I have two tiny humans who are not school age yet. So as much as I love them and being a mom they are definitely top on the distraction list. I schedule quite time and “alone” time. I spend focused 100% child play time and one on one time with my guys. During nap time/ quite time/ alone time is when I work and do my focused “to-do’s” I also live out of my planner.
Q: Do you have any daily routines or rituals that help you to be at your best?
A: Yes! My life is a ritual and a routine so that I can have freedom. I know that doesn’t sound like it makes sense but it is true. I have a morning routine, an afternoon routine, an evening routine, a work routine. I have a routine or ritual for everything. It creates systems. This makes this effortless because it is like muscle memories. My morning routine sets my whole day up for success. I do a few staples that are fast, easy, but essential. I wake up have gratitude, make my bed, meditate, journal, workout and do personal development. This is how I start every day. It sounds like a lot however it takes around an hour.
Q: What are your non-negotiables in life? How has keeping these things a priority helped you to be successful?
A: My family. I do everything so that I can show up and support them. Being ME, the authentic ME. I don’t chase rainbows I create them. I don’t get distracted by other people’s shiny penny because even in my times of “distraction” I’m still focused on the big picture. I stay in a constant state of personal development, self empowerment, and self improvement. I dedicate myself to these things because of generation the generational and woman empowerment that comes from the work I do. It has kept me o track to show up fully for myself and others.
Q: What do you like to do for fun?
A: I like to do nothing. That may sound crazy but I love to just sit and BE. It is something that I love to do with my husband. Just taking in what is around us. As a busy mom and entrepreneur keeps me busy so silence and stillness is blissful. For me bliss is fun.

Who am I
Welcome and Hello! I am excited to be sharing my Emotion Code and Body Code journey with you. I am also excited to share me with you. As I am a real person living a real life. I am working in holistic wellness and healing but I am also raising a family and peopling along with everyone else.My goal for this blog is to share with you pieces of not just my practice but also my life journey and of course my favorite things! So where to begin. Let me share with you a bit about how I got to “here.”
How on Earth did this even happen? I woke up owning two amazing businesses that are completely focused on helping people heal and find their greatness! How incredible is that?!?
Let me just go back a bit. I am a long time lover of holistic healing. I have many friends who work and thrive in different modalities. However at some point in my young life I steered onto a path of conventional medicine. I think I fell into two traps. The first being the “you cant make money doing that” and the second was I had no idea how to go about any of it. Finding courses, a mentor, or making it work. So I went with the flow and I went with what I thought was my passion. It really was too. I became a full time Emergency Medical Technician. I loved this job. I was that person who loved the hours, loved the controlled chaos, and loved helping people. I worked in this career for 15 years. I was living the dream!
Until I got hurt.
At that moment my entire life stopped. Or so I thought. I was no longer able to fulfill the tasks of my job and I wasn’t able to handle the requirements and prerequisites of many other jobs. Like being able to stand or sit for 8 solid hours, or being able to lift 20+ pounds, and so on. At this time I thought I had hit rock bottom. I was in constant pain and I slipped into depression. I had spent years at a career that was also my identity. I had missed family events, weddings, funerals, christenings, holidays, you name it I missed it for my career. So when “it was taken away from me” I was devastated. I was angry. I was resentful. I was peeved.
Then reality hit me.
The eye opening catalyst of my awakening was our house fire. It was the best worst thing that ever happened to me. I had worked for the Fire Service for 7 years and being on an ambulance I worked closely with the Fire Service. The day our house caught fire we lost everything that wasn’t glass. It was the only things that could be washed and saved. Only three of our pets survived. But in the big picture I was okay with this. I had had so much and had gotten distracted by what I didn’t have that I was missing out on what I did have. Because during all of this I had my fiance who was by side the entire time who shortly after became my husband. I had family and friends that were loving and supportive. Most of all I realized that what I had been doing was merely existing. I was a drunk. I had multiple failed relationships for multiple reasons. Yet I had only started to do work on healing and growing myself right before dating my fiance. I still had a lot of work to do. I had become a broken human in more ways then one.
Why am I telling you this?
Oh because it is so pertinent. I thought that I was healing at different stages during the years. I wasn’t. Not fully. I was holding patterns and going through motions and cycles of “life” but repeating things that didn’t work. One thing that we knew was a must if we were going to change our patterns and have a successful relationship and life was to stop drinking. That was a must for both of us. I am proud to say we just celebrated 6 years of sobriety. Shortly after our house fire my fiance and I got married. We then found out that our family would be growing! Quicker than we had thought. But we were still excited. We had agreed that our family would grow when God the creator thought we were ready. At that point we both took a good look at our lives and decided it was time to start working on what wasn’t working for us. We needed to grow as humans. So we started working on personal development. We started taking online courses. We started doing things that were healthy for our body, mind, and soul.
This is where we come full circle
Over the past 4 years we have both worked on varying aspects of our lives. We have also added another child to it. We work daily on personal development. That is what brought the Emotion Code into our lives. As we were working on our selves and building our business together we were introduced to a practitioner. My husband and I signed up for a session. We had nothing to lose. All these years later I was still in pain from my work injury. My husband just wanted to see what it was about. I had my session. In my 40 minute session the practitioner was able to relieve pain that rehab, massage, chiropractic, osteopath, and acupuncture weren’t able to release. Don’t get me wrong I still use these practices however I was not able to achieve 100% pain free with them. I was finally 100% pain free! I left my session and cried. I had not been pain free in almost 6 years. My husband had his session. After he said “You need to do this! This is incredible.” I had been looking into working in other modalities. But this was it for me, After my training and healing I met with a long time friend. I was reminded that when I was about 9 years old she had said that I would grow up to be a healer. I thought that I was doing that all those years in EMS. She said “Congratulation you’ve arrived.” I have to say that this has been one of the most rewarding gifts that I have been given. I thank Dr. Bradley daily for hearing the call and sharing it. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve the bliss and freedom that my family and I live with. Because everyone deserves to Live Free.
