About BodyTalk


BodyTalk is a simple and effective holistic therapy that allows the body's energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended. Each system, cell, and atom in the body is constantly communicating. Through exposure to stress, these lines of communication can become compromised or disconnected, leading to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being. BodyTalk helps restore efficient communication in a quick and effective way, allowing the body to recover, preventing disease and rapidly accelerating the healing process. This is witnessed in how quickly symptoms disappear and function returns, often within just one or two BodyTalk sessions.

Innate wisdom of the body

BodyTalk is based on the principle that the body is capable of healing itself at all levels - as evidenced by the healing process automatically initiated when a person cuts a finger or twists an ankle. This self-guided process is part of the body's inborn intelligence, or the "innate wisdom" of the body, as we call it in BodyTalk. The innate wisdom guides the overall functioning of the bodymind complex, synchronizes all the activities and maintains balance within the bodymind complex.

Just as the body heals a wound with a particular sequence of bio-chemical, physical and energetic responses, the body addresses all healing in a certain order. The BodyTalk Practitioner relies on the guidance of the body's natural wisdom to locate the weakened or broken lines of communication and establish the sequence for re-connecting them. This is accomplished through a form of neuromuscular biofeedback, by which the practitioner is able to ask the body yes-or-no questions and receive answers directly from the body.

Flexible and safe

BodyTalk can be used as a stand alone system to treat many chronic and acute health problems, or can be seamlessly integrated with any healthcare regimen to increase its overall effectiveness. BodyTalk's major assets are its simplicity, safety and the speed of results.  

BodyTalk is non-invasive, objective in application and works effectively on humans and animals alike.

BodyTalk is a state-of-the-art approach to integrative mind/body medicine, combining Western medicine's scientifically supported research in fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and psychoneuroimmunology, along with ancient and modern healing methods and knowledge, including Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, yoga and meditation philosophies, Chiropractic, consciousness studies and Energy Psychology.

A typical BodyTalk session

BodyTalk sessions are easy, safe and comfortable, and are done with the client fully clothed. A BodyTalk session usually lasts between 15 and 45 minutes. You and your BodyTalk Practitioner often begin your session by discussing your health status and any other personal issues you may wish to address. Then, you will either relax in a chair or on a treatment table while the practitioner will gently use your arm to establish Yes/No communication. This Yes/No communication is also called neuromuscular biofeedback, which is similar to applied kinesiology. By understanding that your body has an inherent knowledge of itself, the BodyTalk Practitioner is able to quickly and easily ask your body what communication circuits have become compromised and in which order they need to be re-established to facilitate healing.

Tap to synchronize and balance

Tapping on the body to get it to focus on healing has been used for centuries by holistic systems, such as yoga. For BodyTalk specifically, tapping on the head stimulates the brain and causes it to initiate corrections to the broken circuits. This is similar to how a computer runs the programs and makes all the calculations.

The practitioner then lightly taps the sternum to "save" the corrected energy circuit in the heart center and to share this information with every single cell in the body. The heart is responsible for communicating the state of the body's health to the rest of the body through the heart beat. This means that your body will remember these changes after the session, just like hitting the save button on a document will save changes to the computer hard drive so you can access them again later.

BodyTalk is cumulative

Because your body stores the changes made by the brain during the tapping process, this means that every formula or circuit that is corrected builds on the one before. Your body actually remembers the BodyTalk sessions it receives and your healing process will continue with each additional session you have.

Balancing the brain

One of the core philosophies of the BodyTalk System is that all disease found in the body is reflected in the brain at some level. As an example, if there is a neurological connection in the brain that is mis-wired or disconnected, there will be a corresponding reflection in the bodymind complex in the form of a physical, mental, bio-chemical or other malfunction. One of the main goals of BodyTalk is to balance communication between the two halves of the brain, and within all levels of brain function. Improving this communication can quickly address many health issues. The BodyTalk Cortices Technique is one of the most powerful techniques within the system, and has been made available so the general public can start feeling better and more balanced TODAY.

A new perspective

One of the major areas addressed by The BodyTalk System is the realm of personal and spiritual growth. Balancing the body biochemically, physiologically, and emotionally, while addressing specific beliefs and attitudes, the BodyTalk System is a very powerful tool in the field of personal development.

Practitioners and clients alike can experience changes in the way they relate to others, as well as the relationships they have with friends and family. Many individuals find new jobs or improvements within the work they are currently doing and also find an increase in the overall wellness and real happiness they experience on a daily basis. The personal development experienced through BodyTalk can affect an individual on all levels, in all ways.
