What is Body Talk?
The BodyTalk System seeks to address the “whole person”. This means that no aspect of the human psyche can be overlooked, be it emotional, physical or environmental. In BodyTalk, we have developed a whole-healthcare system that supports and promotes the wellbeing of all.
As WholeHealthcare™, BodyTalk understands the profound influence the psychology of the body has on our health. Instead of focusing on the symptom, BodyTalk finds the underlying causes of illness by addressing the whole-person and their whole-story.
(A number of years ago I had a client who had ‘tennis elbow’ it had appeared out of nowhere (she did not play tennis) she had tried the anti inflamatories, she had tried physio and it was getting so bad that the doctor had suggested an exploratory procedure to see what was happening in the elbow. I saw her about a week before the op. Ostensibly to prepare her for the operation.
Her body suggested that the cause of the pain was emotional and that it was linked to work. I asked her what kind of work she did and she said she was in HR. I asked her if she was enjoying her work. She said no, as she was in the process of retrenching 40 people. The elbow is about giving and receiving, the pain of retrenching was manifesting in her elbow. I did a body talk session on her and gave her a few excersises to do. I told her not to cancel the procedure until she felt that the elbow was pain free and strong. She cancelled the procedure the day before and has not had pain since. )
The BodyTalk techniques provide 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. The client lies fully clothed on the therapy bed and the practitioner uses the clients wrist to gage the responses from the body. We use the simple Kinesiology muscle testing technique to do this.
The beauty of BodyTalk is that it respects the body’s own needs and determines your body’s priorities for healing. Then with the use of a variety of non-invasive techniques, BodyTalkers refocus your body’s natural healing response to establish better communication within the body. Health challenges arise for a variety of reasons. When a practitioner is trained to look at the whole-person, emotional, physical and environmental influences – the true underlying causes of dis-ease can be revealed.
BodyTalk 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 to create a complete approach to health and wellbeing. This includes referring a client onto another Healthcare practitioner or field of healthcare when necessary.
Ultimately, the bodymind knows best how to heal itself in a holistic way. Any interference by way of treating symptoms is only a compromise, for the real power of healing lies innately within the body itself.
