What is BodyTalk?
BodyTalk is a simple and effective holistic therapy that allows your body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended. Every cell in our bodies has natural ability to heal itself but due to pollution, stress and our usage of supplements and drugs our bodies slowly forget that natural ability.
A BodyTalk session can restore your natural ability to heal and fix your health issues. It 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 hurts an elbow or twists an ankle.
As a consciousness-based healthcare, BodyTalk enhances our natural healing ability and stimulates our bodies to balance and heal itself on all levels. A trained BodyTalk practitioner listens to what your body is saying, thus they can identify the roots of problems in your body and heal the problems on physical, emotional, psychological, and energetic levels. BodyTalk integrates seamlessly with medical science, but it does not substitute medical treatment nor medications.
The BodyTalk techniques provide insights to the areas of your body that need attention. Instead of focusing on the symptoms, BodyTalk practitioners find the underlying causes of illness by addressing the whole-person and their whole-story. What might seem like an obvious problem to you is not necessarily the one your body wants to address first.
If a BodyTalk technique is performed incorrectly, it simply means that there will be no result or change. It will not make things worse. It follows, therefore, that anyone who receives BodyTalk has nothing to lose and everything to gain as far as his or her health is concerned.
Indeed, every person who is sincerely interested in the concept of total healthcare and has a respect for the power of the potential of human body-mind should find out more about the BodyTalk System.
The concept of BodyTalk:
Innatism: refers to a philosophy of Plato and Descartes who assumed that a God or a similar being or process placed innate ideas and principles in the human mind. Innatism is a philosophical and epistemological doctrine that holds that the mind is born with ideas/knowledge, and that therefore the mind is not a “blank slate” at birth. It asserts that not all knowledge is gained from experience and the senses. This is what we call innate wisdom in BodyTalk.
Innate wisdom lets every single cell, atom, and system communicates constantly with every other cell, atom and system within the bodymind 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. Exposure to stress, pollution, and chemical substances in our daily life can cause these circuits to become compromised, weakening or disrupting the communication between the cells and systems.
A BodyTalk practitioner connects with the innate wisdom, then using BodyTalk protocol chart they will find out which parts of the client’s body have communication breakdown that causes symptoms/problems. The left and right brain will then be balanced with BodyTalk tapping techniques to fix the communication breakdown and to re-synchronise the whole body-mind complex.
The history of BodyTalk:
In 1995, Dr. John Veltheim introduced BodyTalk, a revolutionary healthcare system that uses state-of-the-art energy medicine to optimize the body’s internal communications and allow it to more effectively respond to injury and illness. Since then, the BodyTalk System has been taught to more than a thousand practitioners around the world.
Veltheim, an Australian, once ran a busy clinic for Chinese medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic and naturopathy. He became exhausted, got ill and couldn’t recover. The long search for a cure led him to experiment with blending these and other alternative therapies, creating “acupuncture without needles”.
The breakthrough in BodyTalk was achieved in 1995 when Veltheim discovered that we can tap into the body’s energy circuits by using simple muscle testing to discover areas of sluggish communication. Tapping on the head then tells the brain to “fix” the faulty circuit, followed by tapping on the heart to “store” the fix, just like a computer downloading a programme.
Until today there are over 200 BodyTalk instructors teaching in over 50 countries with translation of training materials into 10 languages, and there are over 1,300 Certified BodyTalk Practitioner helping people in over 40 countries around the world. BodyTalk is used by people in countries across the globe and from all walks of life, from professional athletes looking for a competitive edge to poor communities desperately in need of affordable healthcare.
