How Does BodyTalk Work?


The Wisdom of the Body

BodyTalk is based on the principle that the body is capable of healing itself at all levels. When we cut a finger or twist an ankle our body’s innate healing process is automatically be initiated without our even having to think about it.  The stresses of daily living can compromise our healing ability and lead to degeneration and illness.  BodyTalk reminds the bodymind to direct its healing attention to these neglected or compromised areas.
Body Talk is a holistic therapy that uses the “innate wisdom” or inborn wisdom of the client and practitioner to identify and treat weak communication links within the body.



Asking the Body

The body is asked what its health priorities are through biofeedback testing.  By establishing a yes/no communication between the practitioner and the client, the body can instruct the practitioner what its balancing priorities are and in what sequence.






The Links

Good health is based on good communication among all the systems of the body.  The practitioner asks the body what organs, endocrine glands, body parts, etc need to be linked in order to reestablish good communication and facilitate healing.






The Tapping Process

The tapping procedure is one of the most important developments in the BodyTalk System.  Tapping on the body to get it to focus on healing has been used by some indigenous holistic systems for centuries.  For BodyTalk, tapping on the head to “fix” the faulty communication and on the sternum over the heart to “store” the fix, facilitates the body’s own ability to restore and maintain its optimum balance.

The Breath

Exaggerated breathing is often used to help the body locate and target the corrections.  The in-breath scans the higher frequencies of the bodymind including thoughts and emotions, while the out-breath scans the denser frequencies such as tissue, muscle and bone.


The Cumulative Effect of BodyTalk

Because your body stores the changes made by the brain during the tapping process, this means that every formula or circuit that is corrected builds on the one before. Your body actually remembers the BodyTalk sessions it receives and your healing process will continue with each additional session you have.
