About Mary Rice
Like many people in this culture, my life as a younger adult was packed with fast-paced activities and a fair amount of stress. That seemed normal and even, perhaps, what was expected to create a happy life. I earned a business degree from New York University while working as an International Flight Attendant. Each week I flew to either Europe or Japan while living on Long Island and later, Manhattan. It was a lot of fun.
I transferred to San Francisco and two years later, I was bed-ridden with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I felt lost, confused, devastated. I could barely walk across the street when months before I was flying full time and skiing at Lake Tahoe. Why did my body break down when others were living with lots of stress and staying healthy? The underlying causes of my body’s emerging health difficulties would be largely undiscovered for two more decades.
A few years into living in submission to this astonishingly unpredictable illness, I learned of the total load concept from one of the countless doctors I saw. The total load includes excess sugar or chemicals in the diet; environmental factors such as poor air quality, heavy metals, pesticides, noise; undetected microbes; mold and other allergens; psychological stressors such as current or past trauma, toxic relationships and addictions; dehydration, lack of exercise and more. While any one of these would not normally cause illness, the cumulative total may overload the body’s ability to function. In retrospect, it is easy to see the telltale signs of my body’s breakdown. Research now suggests some people may have a compromised shut off system to stress.
In addition to the prescribed Western medical treatments my doctors offered, I tried all the complementary medical options I could. Since I was easily stressed and could not exercise as before, I studied and practiced meditation, yoga, and later, Spring Forest Qigong. I studied these and other energy medicine modalities because I believed there were answers if I just kept the faith and kept going.
In year 20 of this healing journey, I was introduced to the Emotion Code and The Body Code systems of energy healing. Gradually, I began to discover and understand the real reasons behind my debilitating health issues. As I began studying and using The Body Code on myself, I found many layers of trapped emotions and traumas as well as infections that were greatly compromising my body’s ability to function. My body’s natural healing ability became stronger as I reduced the total load on my body, mind, and spirit.
At last, I was able to resolve the severe fatigue, symptoms from mold, food intolerances/allergies, overwhelming emotions and more. Over time, I gradually was able to reduce and later stop taking many drugs and supplements. I only wish I had discovered Dr. Bradley Nelson's* secret years earlier--that hidden or past trapped emotions can indeed, make us sick. I had a sense all along that if I could find something to help me, I could then use my vast experience to help others.
Today I am truly grateful to be alive. I appreciate each day and am able to exercise and do more of what brings me joy. Highly spiritual and intuitive, I enjoy daily meditation, yoga, nature, beauty, the arts, dogs and practicing mindfulness. I am passionate about health and healing and I am honored to be a Certified Emotion Code and Body Code Practitioner and to be able to offer this energy healing gift to you.

What People are Saying
"One of the biggest improvements for me, from working with Mary Rice, is a major reduction in the severity and frequency of my anxious and panicky feelings. Because of this, I sleep better and am generally calmer, so I am more myself throughout the day. I no longer suffer from hot flashes or night sweats and my back pain has gone away. I am so thankful for Mary and the Body Code."*
—Kathy Kinney, Red Wing, Minnesota
"Here is a great example of my sessions with Mary—Go in feeling one way, come out feeling lighter and more prepared for life. Not only has Mary been great to work with as an individual but she is able to connect quickly and deeply to reveal things that make so much sense but would not have been discovered by me. I cannot thank her enough for the generational healing that me and my entire family are getting out of these sessions!"*
