THE BODYTALK SYSTEM
The BodyTalk System takes a holistic approach to health, addressing the “whole person” and considering every aspect of the human psyche. It recognises that the body is designed with a natural ability to heal itself and that the psychology of the body has a profound influence on overall health. Rather than focusing on the physical symptoms, BodyTalk takes a deeper look at the issues to identify the underlying causes of illness. By observing the bigger picture, you begin to understand that your physical condition is a representation of what is going on in the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life.
When you encounter stress, whether physical, emotional, psychological or even environmental, it can cause breakdowns in communication between your body’s cells and systems, which ultimately lead to discomfort and dis-ease. Every choice, and every experience in your life, has contributed to your current state of health. Each scar, laugh line and injury has a unique narrative to tell and BodyTalk provides the tools to raise your self-awareness whilst considering the whole story of your health. Your lifestyle, genetics and history are all drawn upon to establish a personalised approach to healthcare that supports and promotes your wellbeing.
The BodyTalk techniques offer insights to the areas of your body that need attention. What might seem like an obvious problem to you is not necessarily the one your body wants to address first. Working on the concept of priorities to address your body’s imbalances allows the practitioner to attend to your most immediate needs, reconnect the lines of communication and rapidly accelerate the healing process. Light tapping and non-invasive techniques are used to restore harmony and stimulate your body’s innate ability to heal and balance itself on all levels.
The beauty of BodyTalk is how it recognises that each system of healthcare and each practitioner have a unique knowledge and skill set. BodyTalk is designed to integrate all fields of healthcare and create a complete approach to health and wellbeing. This includes referring a client onto another healthcare practitioner or field of healthcare when necessary.
To Each a Unique, Dynamic Balance
In the BodyTalk System, we tend not to talk about addressing specific diseases. Instead, the BodyTalk philosophy is that every person has a unique balance that should be addressed. Once balanced, the client’s own innate healing wisdom will successfully address specific symptoms and establish lasting patterns of good health. The ideal goal is to achieve the most dynamic point of balance within our body-mind complex so we are easily able to respond to the issues life throws at us with ease and grace.
Your Body’s Own Healing Process
Naturally, most clients arrive for a session with a health concern, and this problem is addressed. However, the BodyTalk Practitioner does not make a diagnosis for the purpose of establishing a specific session protocol. BodyTalk recognizes that although two people may appear to show the exact same symptoms, the communication links needed to balance their conditions may be entirely different. No two sessions are ever alike!
Balancing the Brain
One of the core philosophies of the BodyTalk System is that all disease found in the body is reflected in the brain at some level. As an example, if there is a neurological connection in the brain that is mis-wired or disconnected, then there will be a corresponding reflection in the bodymind complex in the form of a physical, mental, bio-chemical or other malfunction. One of the main goals of BodyTalk is to balance communication between the two halves of the brain, as well as within all levels of brain function. Improving this communication can quickly and easily address many common issues, as well as improve brain function and memory overall.
One of the major areas addressed by The BodyTalk System is the realm of personal and spiritual growth. Balancing the body biochemically, physiologically, and emotionally, while addressing specific beliefs and attitudes encourages personal development and a new perspective on life.
