BodyTalk is truly a revolution in healthcare. Combining the wisdom of medicines traditional, alternative and orthodox, BodyTalk is a comprehensive and complete system of healthcare designed to be able to address all of your healthcare needs. From dealing with chronic pain, acute injury and disease, through to depression, insomnia and emotional issues, BodyTalk is being used to heal a myriad of illnesses with great success throughout the world. It is a pain-free, drug-free approach, with the added benefit of having no risks or side effects.
To best understand how the BodyTalk System works, it helps to understand how the human body works and how it heals. Your body has the inherent ability to heal itself. For example, if you cut your finger, you don’t have to consciously think about how to heal it – your body will grow new skin cells to knot over the wound, and it can do the job so effectively that you often cannot tell where the cut had been. This is a result of efficient communication within your body. In fact, all body functions and processes occur because of your internal communication. For the most part, you do not even know that it is happening – your brain is constantly scanning your body and repairing any problems it finds. In doing so, you are able to avoid minor imbalances becoming observable health conditions. Indeed, once it has become apparent enough to be a concern, it is obvious that somewhere along the way there has been a breakdown in internal communication. This is where BodyTalk comes in.
Adhering to this principle, BodyTalk works to restore communications in the body that have become compromised. Through reconnecting these pathways, your body is able to revert to self-healing and sidestep further health complications. BodyTalk practitioners do not ‘diagnose’, ‘treat’ or ‘prescribe’, recognizing that the natural process of healing does not require this input. Instead, the BodyTalk practitioner uses a neuro-muscular biofeedback technique to get specific responses directly from your brain as to what needs to be addressed and in what order. With this method, BodyTalk is able to get results fast. It bypasses the usual diagnosis - what the patient or practitioner ‘thinks’ is the problem - and communicates directly with the patient’s brain, which is intrinsically involved and hence better equipped to judge what needs attention. Once an area of priority has been ascertained, the BodyTalk practitioner uses a gentle tapping technique to re-establish lines of communication.
Everyone benefits from the BodyTalk System. Why? Because all of your health issues can be summed up by one word – STRESS! Stress, in all of its forms, is THE undermining force when it comes to maintaining optimal health. You may not notice the adverse affects immediately, but over time symptoms compound to produce serious conditions.
When your body is relaxed and balanced, internal communication happens with ease. However, under stress these lines become overwhelmed, resulting in confusion and dysfunction, which translates to diminished health. Modern-day lifestyles bring with them all types of stress – physical, psychological and environmental – including over-exercising, poor quality food, emotional trauma, lack of sleep or exposure to pollution & artificial electricity fields. While we cannot avoid all of these things, BodyTalk has the capacity to address the impact of stress on the your body, and also offers tools for stress-management.
Some of the many issues BodyTalk has been successful in dealing with are:
While BodyTalk is not always a substitute for conventional medical care, almost every condition has been found to respond positively to BodyTalk because it furthers your body’s natural healing efforts. So even if BodyTalk is not being used as the primary mode of healing, it will help you heal faster.
Ultimately BodyTalk makes taking care of your health easy:
The focus is on solutions rather than in-depth analysis of issues, so there is no need for extensive talk therapy and the technique requires very little effort on your part.
As well as the many practitioners who are dedicated to this system, many other healthcare providers - doctors, nurses, psychologists, physical therapists, coaches, acupuncturists, midwives, teachers, trainers etc, use BodyTalk.
