What is BodyTalk?
BodyTalk is a healthcare system designed by your body – to address the emotions, physical or environment – THE WHOLE STORY, and is suitable for people, animals and plants.
Stress can overload our energetic circuits, causing them to fail or beome compromised, 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, but often times the body cannot reset these blown circuits on its own. As a consequence the body then must continue to function in a less than ideal state.
As a BodyTalk Practitioner, I rely on the guidance of the body’s natural wisdom to find the proper order in which they are to be restored. Rather than using invasive techniques, the session is focused on stimulating your body’s natural healing response to establish better communication with the body.
How does it work? Using a combination of western medicine & science supported research, such as epigenetics and neuroscience and ancient methods healing. These include Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy psychology, musculoskeletal alignment and the chakra systems. I work from a chart to access the energetic frequencies and gain information to carry out the session.
A session is relaxing, and can be carried out in a chair or on a treatment table while I gently use your arm in such a manner to establish Yes/No communication. This Yes/No communication is also called neuromuscular biofeedback, which is similar to applied kinesiology.
I then tap gently on areas of the body (or away from the body if for example I’m working with a sensitive person or a small baby). Tapping has been used by some indigenous holistic systems, such as yoga, for centuries, and is becoming popular in Western culture over the past years. Tapping on head tells brain to “fix” faulty communication circuit and heart to “store” the fix. Body parts may be held to help with focus. Breathing helps brain scan the body to locate imbalances.
Often I will use Flower essences in conjunction with the BodyTalk session, to continue the healing throughout the days following. I find this is consistently helpful for children and adults who have experienced a session, and it is normal to feel a little tired after a session as the brain is slowing down and recalibrating. I often get kids asking parents to come back for more of that ‘tapping thing’ as they feel the benefits themselves!
