Discover What Your Body Is Trying to Tell You About Reaching Your Highest Health
Headaches, gut issues, back pain, nagging thoughts, anxiety. These are your body’s way of telling you that something is amiss. Instead of trying to silence them, discover how to work with your body to find and release the root cause of your issues.
Clinically trained bodyworker Emily A. Francis has helped thousands of people heal themselves physically and emotionally with a unique approach to healing that works directly within the memory systems of the body. Our body is a miraculous vessel, capable of storing joyful memories deep within our cells, muscles and tissues. Unfortunately, it also stores painful and traumatic memories. This groundbreaking interactive book contains everything you need to clean your emotional house from top to bottom, including journal prompts and access to audio meditations to listen to as you read.
With this holistic approach, you will develop a deep awareness of your body’s unique wisdom and transform any pain and trauma that’s been holding you back. You’ll discover:
• How to process the Heavy Four emotions—Grief, Guilt, Shame and Trauma
• How to make room for the Fabulous Four emotions—Happiness, Joy, Connection and Empowerment
• Why “trauma” is broader than you think—it can include a painful childbirth, an automobile accident, a lengthy hospital stay, or a collective trauma of living through a global pandemic
Your Body Is Speaking to You— It’s Time to Learn the Language to Answer
“Emily Francis’s book says it all. I had to learn as a surgeon about the power of the mind and how the body believes what the mind conceives. The truth is that we heal ourselves. When people have an unexpected recovery, doctors call it a spontaneous remission, but as Emily reveals it is not spontaneous but self-induced. We all have the potential to achieve that with correct coaching and our showing up for practice. Read this excellent healing manual and begin the process of becoming whole and complete.”
—Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Love, Medicine and Miracles
"Healing Ourselves Whole gets to the visceral origin of emotional toxicity with a universal language to heal our broken, misaligned bodies. She has developed a vernacular for healing that our body tissues speak to allows us to excise the chronic wounds of pain, traumas and guilt. Years of toxic emotional pain that has built up and crippled our ability to function optimally is given an equally powerful blow of transformative recovery through her techniques and exercises. This book will help you undo what has been the cause of your chronic physical or mental pain.”
—Roberto Tostado M.D, author of WTF (What the Food) is Wrong with Our Health?
“In Healing Ourselves Whole, Emily Francis connects the dots between thoughts and feelings—particularly the most deep-seated ones—and the body’s physical response. This heartfelt book is a must-read for anyone struggling to free themselves from years of negative emotions so that happiness, joy, and health can become a daily truth. Emily holds your hand like a trusted friend throughout the process, encouraging you to journal, meditate, and go deep into yourself to release the emotional chains once and for all and to achieve healing on its deepest level.”
—Dr. Debbie Palmer, author of Mindful Beauty
“Placing the tools and strategies for self-healing directly in readers’ hands, Emily offers clear, experiential wisdom honed from years of personal work and study. As a yoga therapist, I often look for resources that will empower my clients and I will be recommending this, my favorite of all her books! This universally applicable volume of healing protocols will take any who use it into optimal wellbeing.”
—Jennie Lee, author of Spark Change, True Yoga, and Breathing Love
”This book will take you beyond the symptoms into the root cause of physical and emotional imbalances. It is a perfect blend of Eastern and Western ideas spun into tangible steps so that readers can feel held, supported, and empowered by the process. This book is ideal for professionals and individuals looking to tap into the wisdom of their own bodies. It serves as an incredible resource for healing and feeling whole again.”
—Sherianna Boyle, author of Emotional Detox for Anxiety
“Much like the jocular sage of Tibetan Buddhism, Emily disguises profound wisdom in a light-hearted tour of her own experiences as a bodyworker and healer. Yet, this is a book for the ages and, perhaps, for the sages too. In it are all the tools of the greatest healers: the wisdom of cause and effect, the magic of therapeutic metaphor, the curative intent of the most powerful shaman. Emily brings to conscious expression the causes and the cure and carries us along with her. Hers is an exquisitely sensitive prescription for a process of helping and healing that eventuates in a whole, happy and self-determined human being.”
—Steve Bierman, MD, author of HEALING—Beyond Pills & Potions
“In her inspiring book, Emily Francis shares the culmination of her life’s work thus far so we can become liberated through her unique tracking system. Under her powerful guidance, you will become uent in the language of your body so you can deeply know who you joyfully and healthfully are. Thank you, Emily Francis, for this gift.”
—Bridgit Dengel Gaspard, LCSW, author of The Final 8th: Enlist Your Inner Selves to Accomplish Your Goals
