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 is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, however, these lines of communication can become compromised or disconnected, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being. Reconnecting these lines of communication enables the body’s internal mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus repairing and preventing disease while rapidly accelerating the healing process. In this way, BodyTalk stimulates the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself on all levels.
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 system 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 adults and children alike.
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 that is automatically initiated when a person cuts a finger or twists an ankle. This automatic, self-guided healing 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 body mind complex, synchronizes all the activities as well as maintains balance, or homeostasis, within the body mind complex.
Stress Affects our Health
Stress has a profound effect on the body and its ability to heal and function at an optimal level. When an individual experiences ongoing stress, it can overload the energetic circuits of the body, causing them to fail or be severely compromised. This is just like plugging too many appliances into an outlet and tripping a circuit breaker in your home. You have blown a fuse and must go reset it. Often times the body cannot reset these blown circuits on its own, so the body then must continue to function in a less than ideal state. This ultimately leads to degeneration, illness and pain in the body, a sign that it is simply falling behind in the healing process. Stress-related illnesses include, but are not limited to: high blood pressure and heart rate, digestive disorders, hormone and endocrine imbalances, fatigue, infertility issues and all manner of immune system disorders.
Energetic Circuits and Communication
Every single cell, atom, and system is in constant communication with every other cell, atom and system within the body mind complex at all times. This includes communication through the nervous system, as well as the other subtle energy circuits of the body – such as the meridians and the electromagnetic frequencies that are produced by the body through its functioning. Stress we experience in our daily life can cause these circuits to become compromised, weakening or disrupting the communication between the cells and systems.
BodyTalk helps to re-establish these energetic circuits and efficient communication in a quick and effective way, which then allows the body to very quickly recover and catch up in the healing process. This is witnessed in how quickly symptoms disappear and function returns, often within just one or two BodyTalk sessions.
Trusting the Body’s Wisdom
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. This concept is vital in the BodyTalk balancing process to encourage the body’s ability to heal itself by the fastest means possible.
The BodyTalk Practitioner relies on the guidance of the body’s natural wisdom to not only locate the weakened or broken lines of communication and establish how to re-connect them, but also to find the proper order in which they are to be restored. 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 about the sequence for re-establishing these lines of communication.
What Does BodyTalk Address?
To Each a Unique, Dynamic Balance
In the BodyTalk System, we tend not to talk about addressing specific diseases. Instead, the BodyTalk philosophy is that every person has a unique balance that should be addressed. Once balanced, the client’s own innate healing wisdom will successfully address specific symptoms and establish lasting patterns of good health. The ideal goal is to find the best, most dynamic point of balance within our body mind complex, such that we are easily able to respond to the issues life throws at us with ease and grace.
Balancing the Brain
Naturally, most clients arrive for a session with a health concern, and this problem is addressed. However, the BodyTalk Practitioner does not make a diagnosis for the purpose of establishing a specific session protocol. BodyTalk recognizes 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!
Your Body’s Own Healing Process
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 misswired or disconnected, then there will be a corresponding reflection in the body mind 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, as well as within all levels of brain function. Improving this communication can quickly and easily address many common issues, as well as improve brain function and memory overall.
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.
A BodyTalk Session
How does a session work?
BodyTalk sessions are easy, safe and comfortable; they are done with the client fully clothed. A BodyTalk session usually lasts between 40 and 45 minutes. The length of a session is not indicative of the quality of the session or the results that occur; as even the simplest sessions can be quite profound. The body mind knows just how many changes and corrections it is ready to initiate in any given session, and will therefore indicate when the session is complete and may even establish a time when you may need to return for a follow-up session.
The BodyTalk system works by first identifying the weak energy circuits that exists within the body. The practitioner relies on the innate wisdom of the body to locate the energy circuits that need repair by using neuromuscular biofeedback, or subtle muscle testing. The practitioner then taps the client on the top of the head, which stimulates the brain centers and causes the brain to re-evaluate the state of the body’s health. It results in a greatly improved general energy balancing of the body.
The practitioner then taps the client on the sternum to “announce” the corrected energy flows to the rest of the body. This is beneficial because the heart is responsible for communicating the state of the body’s health to the rest of the body.
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.

General Wellness and Preventative Healthcare
General Wellness is one of the basic aspects of healthcare that the BodyTalk System provides an individual. Even though you may think you feel good, there is a good chance that you can feel even better than you currently do. If you have any sort of minor aches and pains, headaches, digestive imbalances or stress-related issues, BodyTalk will quickly and easily bring your body into a better state of balance. BodyTalk also is preventative, as it can help your body mind have the best possible function so that you will not be susceptible to the stress you experience and so that your immune system is protecting you appropriately from external factors, such as germs and toxins.
BodyTalk involves maximizing performance levels and addressing emotional and psychological factors in a straight-forward and practical way. BodyTalk amplifies the brain’s focus to specific parts of the body, thus increasing the blood supply, lymph flow, nerve flow, energy flow, immune response, and tissue repair. This amplification of focus enables the brain to attune to the very specific needs of the body to greatly accelerate the healing process in rehabilitation settings. And this same ability to mobilize and focus the body’s systems has been able to bring about enhanced performance results for athletes and performers of all kinds.
In a similar fashion, BodyTalk speeds up all the body’s healing processes and shortens recovery time from injuries, surgeries and illnesses. Many Physio Therapists incorporate BodyTalk into their regular practices – with dramatic results.
Pregnancy and Childbirth
BodyTalk can be used during pregnancy and childbirth, but can also be used on newborns and very young children as well. Receiving prenatal BodyTalk sessions allows the mother and baby to be in full and proper communication with each other, which will allow the baby to develop healthily, and can also address any particular issues that may arise during the pregnancy. BodyTalk at the actual birthing can help the mother remain present and calm, and can assist the labor in being more efficient. Postnatal BodyTalk can help mom and baby recover from the stress of the birth quickly and easily.
Cognitive Development and Brain Injury
BodyTalk facilitates the brain’s ability to self-repair from any number of factors, including brain injury and trauma. BodyTalk has shown to be very effective in treating, Autism, ADD/ADHD, Trauma, and brain injury of all kinds, leading to improved brain function, and improved cognitive development.
Organ/Tissue Transplantation and Joint Replacement
Pre- and post- operative BodyTalk sessions can aid the body in handling surgery, enabling faster recovery, while minimizing the rejection of new tissue.
PTSD and Trauma
BodyTalk has shown some excellent results in individuals suffering from stress disorders. Balancing the brain helps the client work through shock, trauma, and disturbing negative associations and memories.
Cancer and Chemotherapy Support
As an adjunct to allopathic cancer treatments, BodyTalk helps the body better handle the nausea and other side effects from chemo drugs or radiation, helping the body come back into balance and heal more completely. BodyTalk is also effective in pain management therapies.
Immune System Dysfunction and Allergies
One of BodyTalk’s strengths is its ability to facilitate recovery from allergies, immune system issues, hormone imbalances and body chemistry issues of all kinds. Allergy experts, endocrinologists and general healthcare practitioners are amazed at the body’s ability to balance its own chemistry when stimulated to do so through BodyTalk.
BodyTalk has been used for those in hospice care as well as for their family members to help them handle this stressful situation more easily. For those individuals in hospice care, BodyTalk can help resolve any remaining resistance or fears that individual may have around dying and can assist them in transitioning smoothly and with dignity.
Addiction Recovery and Cravings
BodyTalk can address cravings and addictions of all kinds, by addressing the underlying causative factor, stored memory, or emotion associated with that addiction. BodyTalk is an excellent addition to any addiction recovery program.
