What is BodyTalk?

BodyTalk is a revolutionary consciousness-based health care system that balances physical, mental and emotional health. The therapy can be used on its own to optimize health and well-being or it can be integrated with other health care modalities to promote healing for the body, mind and spirit.

It encompasses aspects of modern scientific research regarding the mind/body connection in addition to time-tested, ancient healing modalities. The body’s natural ability to heal itself is engaged in order to synchronize energy pathways that may be compromised due to illness, stress and/or environmental factors.

A simple muscle testing technique, or biofeedback, prioritizes which compromised energy links in the body need to be harmonized. Gentle tapping of the head signals energy balance to the brain while gentle tapping of the sternum communicates energy shifts to the heart and the rest of the body.

BodyTalk requires no diagnoses as each cell of the body remembers this new energy balance after the treatment session. Utilizing the body’s amazing natural healing abilities, this therapy facilitates practical results for overall wellness and accelerates the healing response to stress, illness or injury. The protocol is safe, non-invasive and effective for children and adults of all ages.

Dr. John Veltheim, Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Founder of the BodyTalk System:  “The second important principle is one of dynamic interaction or synchronicity. This means that we look for ways to fix any breakdowns in communication between all the body parts.

The linking of the organs and other parts of the body and treating them is one of the most important fundamentals of the BodyTalk system. Many patients have quite healthy organs that are capable of functioning well, but have symptoms of discord or disease related to a specific organ.

This is because the organ is not synchronizing well with other parts of the body. For example, the liver, stomach, and pancreas may be healthy within themselves, but are not collectively synchronized. As a result, the patient has chronic digestive disorders despite the apparently ‘healthy’ organs. Once the organs are linked with BodyTalk, they reestablish the synchronicity necessary for effective digestion. Also, a genuinely diseased organ often cannot fully recover until its relationships with the organs and other body systems are reestablished. The BodyTalk linking treatment does this.

An analogy could be in a symphony orchestra with seventy different instruments. If each ‘healthy’ instrument plays independently of the others and does not synchronize its efforts, the result is disharmonious noise rather than a symphony.

With BodyTalk, we act as the conductor who links and synchronizes the multiple ‘instruments’ in the body to create (the harmony of) a symphony of health."

BodyTalk Training:

Amazed by the results of her own BodyTalk sessions with physical therapist Nicki Pakkala at Finland Steam Baths, Angela enrolled in her first BodyTalk course in Boston with Janet Galipo, licensed acupuncturist, in 2006. She then completed BodyTalk: Fundamentals with Michael McKibban in 2007. She has since studied with Rhode Island based BodyTalk instructor Stephen Kauffman and Karen Atkins of Nurture New York. Each instructor has given her a different perspective foundation course for the BodyTalk system. She has also completed BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness and Macrocosmic BodyMind with Janet Galipo and BodyTalk: Bio–Dynamics with Gilly Adkins.
