Bodytalk is a relatively new healing modality that is gaining popularity around the globe. BodyTalk does not work with specific symptoms, but rather seeks to uncover that which is below the surface and contributing to the client’s state of disease or illness. As the body/mind are inextricably linked, getting to the “story” behind the symptoms can bring about huge shifts in the wellbeing of the client. After all, we are not just physical beings. We have an emotional, mental and spiritual component that needs to be addressed. There can be issues from way back in the past that are needing to be released or trauma stored within the body/mind complex.

Often there are subconscious issues at play that are contributing to the ill health or pain of the client. It is all these factors that block the flow of energy and affect the body’s delicate synchronistic balance.  Once released and balanced, the body can function optimally. It is like peeling layers of an onion — each session builds on the previous one. The result being a feeling of lightness, positivity and general wellbeing.

BodyTalk recognises that although two people may appear to show the exact same symptoms, the communication links needed to balance their conditions may be entirely different. No two sessions are ever alike!

The kinds of conditions for which clients seek out BodyTalk treatments are:

  • Arthritis
  • Compromised immune functioning
  • Chronic pain
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Viral and other types of infections
  • Chronic fatigue

  • Weight loss struggles
  • Enuresis (bed-wetting)
  • IBS and other digestive problems

The BodyTalk system is a gentle and non-invasive form of integrative medicine based on quantum healing principles. During a session, clients remain clothed lying comfortably on a massage table, or sitting in a chair. During distant sessions, clients can go about their day as usual even while session is being done.

The practitioner uses a form of muscle testing while following a specific protocol (something like a map of your body/mind) to determine which of the many communication links within your body need to be balanced.

To perform the necessary balances, the practitioner gently taps across both hemispheres of the brain, on the heart energy complex, and over the abdomen. The tapping procedure is based on quantum healing principles and is designed to bring the highlighted areas to the attention of your body and to stimulate it to begin the self-healing process.

Commonly felt sensations during a BodyTalk session include feeling warm or cold, a general feeling of calmness and relaxation spreading through the body, a sudden need to express an emotion such as laughing or crying, and abdominal gurgling as energy is released from the diaphragm.

At the end of the session, the practitioner uses the muscle testing to determine if a follow-up session is required, and when the optimum date for the follow-up would be.

So, for those of you who are feeling at a dead-end with conventional medical treatment or who are searching for a more holistic way of healing, BodyTalk could well be your missing link!
