What is BodyTalk?

Very simply put, BodyTalk is a form of healthcare therapy that helps your body heal more effectively. 

How does this happen?


BodyTalk is a system that looks at not just the whole body, but the whole picture and the whole person, when it comes to addressing the symptoms we are struggling with in our lives.  It is all too common for someone to have some sort of physical ailment; BodyTalk addresses so much more than that by helping with the mental and emotional ailments as well.  Usually the physical symptom is the last thing to show up when it comes to issues within the body.  Often, the physical symptoms are late signs of something deeper going on.  BodyTalk focuses on getting to the root cause of symptoms.  Everything that is going on in our lives, and that has happened in our lives, influences our overall health.  From the day-to-day stress we are faced with, to the emotional ups and downs we’ve experienced in our past, it all affects our overall health and wellbeing.  With BodyTalk, we utilize techniques that take the whole picture into consideration for a truly holistic approach to healing.

How does this work?

The body is able to heal itself.  We all know that, but we so often take it for granted.  If we get a cut on our finger, we have a natural healing response that initiates, and our body heals itself.  Even when we have some sort of medical intervention such a stitches; the stitches only hold the tissues together while the body heals itself.  We don’t even think about it.  We are seemingly unaware of just how powerful this mechanism of healing is.  Our body is designed and built to heal itself on incredible levels.  It is more than capable of healing much more than just physically as well.  So what happens when things don’t heal, or when things start to break down and we are faced with some sort of dis-ease?  The experiences we have in our lives that we don’t process fully, and in particular the stresses we face, compromise that natural healing response.  Essential lines of communication within the body “break down” and the body struggles to heal.  This can be a process that slowly occurs over the course of time, or it can seemingly happen suddenly.  Our body gives us “signals” that something is needing attention and/or needing to be addressed.  However, we often aren’t aware enough to pay attention to these signals until they become so disruptive that we can’t help but listen.  BodyTalk helps to give the body a clearer voice, in a sense, highlights what needs attention, and helps the body to heal.  It is amazing to see what can come up in a session that may seem completely unrelated to the symptom, but is an underlying cause contributing to the issue. 

Stress is something we are all familiar with.  What many don’t realize is that stress comes in many different forms.  We are continually faced with some form of stress.  When we don’t or can’t effectively manage the stress in our lives, essential lines of communication breakdown, and .  BodyTalk not only helps to address the physiological effects of stress, it also helps us to deal with the stress we’re faced with every day. 

During a BodyTalk session, the practitioner uses a type of neuromuscular biofeedback (similar to applied kinesiology) to establish yes/no feedback from your body.  Your body has an inherent natural wisdom of what is going on, and using the biofeedback the practitioner is able to determine what needs to be addressed and what lines of communication have broken down within the body. 

Once this is all established, the practitioner uses a series of tapping to stimulate the body’s natural healing response to correct the imbalances and compromised lines of communication.



Why would this type of therapy be beneficial for me?

Each BodyTalk session is completely unique to each individual, so each client is getting a very specialized session “tailored” just for them.  There is no “cookie-cutter” approach to any symptom or complaint.  Everyone has their own unique life story, their own unique way of seeing the world, and their own unique physical make-up.  It only makes sense to approach each individual person from that perspective, which is how BodyTalk is designed. 

BodyTalk is also designed to get to the root cause of each problem to result in the fullest potential of healing, for that person. 

As mentioned before, a BodyTalk session looks at the whole person and the whole story.  One of the number one things clients report back after a session is that they just feel better.  They can’t always explain specifically how, but they just feel good.  This is because BodyTalk is helping your body heal on many different levels and it’s helping your body to correct things in a specific order, for the most optimal healing to happen.

“This is the beauty of BodyTalk. It respects the body's own needs and determines your body's priorities for healing. Then with the use of a variety of non-invasive techniques, BodyTalkers refocus your body's natural healing response to establish better communication within the body.”


BodyTalk is relaxing and therapeutic.  It’s a new approach to healing, much different than what we’re used to in our part of the world, but it is proving to be highly effective.
