How can BodyTalk nourish you?
In 1995 Dr. John Veltheim, a practicing chiropractor, acupuncturist and natural health professional, founded BodyTalk. He did this by combining therapy and science, advanced yoga, chinese medicine, Western medicine, kinesiology and Hindu philosophy. He was inspired by an ancient tapping technique during his own struggles with health.
BodyTalk therapy has continued to grow and is now practiced in over 100 countries, not only in its application but also in the understanding of the theory behind it. BodyTalk therapists are often already practitioners such as chiropractors, psychotherapists, naturopaths, acupuncturists and nurses.
BodyTalk is a conscience based health care, it’s an energy medicine to optimise the body’s internal communication. As our bodies contain all the information and abilities to heal itself, all they need are the right conditions for this to happen..
This approach is about healing the body as a whole instead of using the cartesian model in which the mind and body are seperate. This is to enhance wellbeing and general health as everything is interconnected. Our bodies are incredibly effective when functioning properly, but can be hindereed by the stressors of life such as pollution, toxins in our food and environment. These factors can have a detrimental effect on our wellbeing whether it is psychologically, physically, or spiritually, and cause a breakdown in the body's communication function rendering it unable to restore and heal itself.

What to expect from a BodyTalk session
Sessions start with a discussion about your health. The practitioner will create a neuromuscular feedback program that gets the body to respond to non-verbal closed questions. The body will respond through movement..
Once a connection is created the practitioner will choose different variations to help communicate such as breathwork, tapping, body chemistry, muscle testing, Cortices technique, hydration, reciprocals, and switching. BodyTalk sessions can take between 15 to 45 minutes.
BodyTalk therapy reviews include those who have said they felt sudden shifts mentally after a few sessions, eradicating the symptoms. Some have even carried on to become therapists themselves.
