What Is It?
The BodyTalk System is a therapy which aims to restore communication between the body’s energy systems to improve health and wellbeing.

BodyTalk was developed in the mid 1990s by Dr John Veltheim, an Australian chiropractor and acupuncturist. It is a form of energy balancing that combines elements of advanced yoga, applied kinesiology, ayurvedic philosophy, modern physics, acupuncture and western medicine.

How Does It Work?
BodyTalk is based on the principle that the body’s systems, cells and atoms are in constant communication with each other. Through exposure to everyday stresses, poor eating habits, or trauma, the lines of communication within the body can become disrupted, leading to physical or psychological problems. The therapy aims to reconnect these lines of communication and re-synchronize the body’s energy systems, accelerating the healing process.

The balancing process used in BodyTalk involves a kind of gentle bodily tapping that is based on an ancient Hatha Yoga technique. Experiments with biofeedback instruments show that when this tapping occurs while a specific part of the body is being touched, there is increased brain activity in relation to that part. Once communication has been restored, the body can heal itself at a deep and lasting level. BodyTalk can be integrated with other therapies to increase its effectiveness.

What Happens During Treatment?
During the first visit the practitioner will ask about your medical history and current health problems. You will lie fully clothed on a therapy table while the practitioner uses neuromuscular feedback (muscle reflex testing on the hands) to locate weak energy circuits that exist in the body. The feedback provides “yes” or “no” responses to a protocol of questions which identifies the parts of the body needing repair, and the proper order in which they are to be addressed. The protocol covers the physiological, biochemical, circulatory, nervous, emotional and/or energy systems. The patient and/or the practitioner touches the part of the body needing repair, while the practitioner gently taps on the head of the patient to focus the brain on the repair, then taps on the chest to store the balance in memory. No diagnosis is given or any medications prescribed.

BodyTalk sessions generally last about 30-45 minutes. The number of sessions needed will vary according to the condition treated. For most people, two or three sessions are enough but some ailments may require more sessions over several weeks.

What Is It Used For?
BodyTalk has been used to treat many ailments, including arthritis, headaches, stress, phobias, depression, allergies, digestive disorders, spinal injuries, pain and addictions.

Side Effects/Cautions
BodyTalk is a non-invasive treatment with no known side effects.

Some healing symptoms may occur in certain cases. For example, if a patient's body is ridding itself of a virus, flu type symptoms may occur until this process is complete. Symptoms could also appear for a short time after treating parasites, toxins, and emotional releases.

Diabetics should monitor their blood sugar carefully after a blood sugar balancing treatment.

BodyTalk should be viewed as a complementary medicine and not a substitute for conventional medical care.
