Current thinking sends us to the doctor if we have a health problem and we expect a cure. The doctor is looking at physical symptoms and making a diagnosis and prescribes what is thought to be effective. This science looks at the body from a mechanical viewpoint.
Newer science now sees the body as interconnected dynamic systems which need to be in balance with one another for good health.
BodyTalk does not make diagnoses or prescribe. Instead it asks what is a Priority so the correct sequence of healing can take place between the systems. Interruptions to the balance and flow of these systems can be caused by attitudes of mind, emotional upheavals, the environment and even what we have inherited from ancestors. This can then lead to dis-ease. We all have our own story which is unique to us. The Practitioner alerts the Bodymind to these blocks by simple tapping which produces standing waves (which are electrical) and leaves the innate healing wisdom to get to work.
Healing is very different from curing. To quote Sol Luckmann, founder of the Regenetics method:
‘Curing is designed to make the problem go away, no questions asked and no insights gained, healing is a very different activity. True healing embraces the problem (which is actually a teaching tool employed by our Higher Self) as a way of integrating and being transformed by it’
The effects of a session can be very subtle and therefore not immediately obvious. It is only on looking back and seeing what has changed that we realise it has made a difference. This could be improved sleep, realising that headaches are less, noticing that actually the back pain seems to have disappeared. On an emotional level, one might be feeling generally happier, spiritually more at peace.
The BodyTalk method was created by John Veltheim. It embraces principles of Chinese medicine, acupuncture, osteopathic and chiropractic philosophy and the insights of modern physics and mathematics,
He devised the method after having been given months to live when suffering from Epstein Barr and he lives to tell the tale. Much more recently he suffered strokes caused by rare genetic anomalies and doctors said it would take 3-5 years to come good but then only with 70% of normal functioning. He has recovered 90% after only 6 months by using his methods on himself.
We each have a responsibility for our own health and it is a question of consciousness. We can become aware when the next level of healing is ready to happen.
Like the Alexander technique and Biofield Tuning it is non invasive, non judgmental and there is no pressure to rush things along.
During a session, you will be asked to lie down on a couch, face up, fully clothed (can also be done seated if lying is a problem). The practitioner sits or stands at your side and will simply touch your hand and after connecting appropriate links will tap on head, sternum and abdomen. The session can last anywhere up to 45 minutes and costs £35. In the event of cancellation 24 hours' notice is required, otherwise the full fee for the session will be charged. The body only deals with what is manageable at the particular time and at the end of the session there will be an indication of whether or when another session is advisable.
BodyTalk sessions can also be conducted remotely without the client needing to be physically present. This can be done via Skype or information can be sent after the session via voicemail.
“Following a BodyTalk session my mouth ulcers cleared up after a day instead of the usual several days. This result has changed my thinking about my health.” - Angela S.
‘My lodger kept coming up as a ’Priority’ and I realised it was time he had to go. I could never have done this without the support of Bodytalk and it significantly changed my life’ - L.M.
