BodyTalk System Overview

In 1995, Dr. John Veltheim introduced BodyTalk, a revolutionary healthcare system thatuses state-of-the-art energy medicine to optimize the body’s internal communications andallow it to more effectively respond to injury and illness. Since then, the BodyTalk Systemhas been taught to more than a thousand practitioners around the world.

Today, there are more than 100 trained BodyTalk instructors teaching the System in 36countries and counting. Graduates of these courses include medical doctors, psychologists,psychotherapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths, physical therapists,osteopaths, nurses, licensed massage therapists and laypersons.

The outstanding growth and success of the BodyTalk System has been fueled by thefollowing factors:

  • Exceptional results occur in almost every sphere of healthcare.
  • It can be used as a stand-alone healthcare system and can be learned in a relatively
  • short time. The basic program is covered in just two weekend modules totaling 38hours of workshop time.
  • It can be integrated seamlessly into any other healthcare modality and is complementary to each modality.
  • It is completely non-invasive and absolutely safe. There are no contraindicationsto its use.
  • No diagnosis is given, no medications prescribed and no invasive techniquesimposed upon the patient.
  • The BodyTalk System does not conflict with, or legally contravene, any existinghealth care system or law.
  • Patients thoroughly enjoy the sessions, and the results are evident within allaspects of health – mind, body and spirit – which makes it truly holistic.

At its heart, BodyTalk is an astonishingly simple and effective form of therapy that allowsthe body's energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended.

Each system, cell and atom in our bodies is in constant communication with each other atall times. Through our exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, these lines ofcommunication become compromised, which then leads to a decline in physical,emotional and/or mental well-being. Reconnecting these lines of communication enablesthe body's mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus preventing disease and rapidlyaccelerating the healing process. In this way, BodyTalk stimulates the body’s innateability to balance and heal itself as it already does in so many ways – from thedisappearance of a small cut to recovery from a cold.

The BodyTalk System recognizes that within each and every one of us there lies the innateknowing of who we are and what makes us tick. This innate wisdom carries the answer tothe healthcare dilemma we face. This is addressed in the following way:

  1. The BodyTalk System facilitates communication with the body’s innatewisdom through neuromuscular biofeedback. This feedback provides thepractitioner with a “yes” or “no” answer to any question that is asked of thebody. The innate wisdom thus provides the practitioner with accurateguidelines with regard to the bodymind requirements for optimum health.
  2. By following a comprehensive protocol of questions, the BodyTalkpractitioner can establish exactly what balancing the body needs in order toharmonize bodymind function. This involves finding out which organs,endocrines or body parts need to be connected to heal communicationbetween them at the physiological, biochemical, circulatory, nervous,emotional and/or energy levels.
  3. The patient and/or practitioner touch(es) the parts that need repair and thepractitioner then uses his/her fingers to gently tap the head of the patient inorder to focus the brain toward that repair. BodyTalk “tapping” is based on anancient Hatha Yoga technique, and experiments with biofeedback apparatushave shown that such “tapping” causes increase in brain activity in relation tothe specific parts being touched.
  4.  The practitioner then lightly taps the chest to store the changes in the heartenergy complex, which ensures that the new balance is held in deep memoryand is, therefore, lasting.

Clinical results have shown that once the communications systems of the body have beenreestablished, and the bodymind complex synchronized, the body is capable of healing itselfat a deep and lasting level.

This is something that modern healthcare systems have tended to forget, or ignore, andthe trend has been to intervene in, rather than use, the body’s natural healing processes.

Of course, there are times that natural healing is limited. The typical emergency such as acar accident, where the body is in crisis, attests to the need of skilled intervention in theform of modern medicine.

Nevertheless, BodyTalk practitioners are seeing the incredible healing power of a“balanced” body in the daily results obtained in practice. The functions of every part ofthe body and mind are improved. This means the immune system will start to eliminatechronic and acute viruses, bacteria, parasites and toxins. Reestablishing of the mind/bodybalance can reduce allergies, emotional and psychological disorders. It also can improveposture and coordination, digestion and elimination, brain functions, learning disorders,and states of distorted consciousness in the form of negative belief systems and attitudes.Significantly, even if a BodyTalk technique is performed incorrectly, it simply means thatthere will be no result or change. It will not make things worse. It follows, therefore, thatanyone who receives BodyTalk has nothing to lose and everything to gain as far as his orher health is concerned.

That is why, today, BodyTalk is used by people in countries across the globe and from allwalks of life, from professional athletes looking for a competitive edge to poorcommunities desperately in need of affordable healthcare.

Indeed, every person who is sincerely interested in the concept of total healthcare and hasa respect for the power of the potential of human bodymind, should find out more aboutthe BodyTalk System.
