What is BodyTalk?

Simply put... BodyTalk is Healthcare designed by your body! BodyTalk is Whole-Healthcare that understands the psychology of the body and the influence it has on your health. Rather than focusing on the symptom, BodyTalk reveals the hidden causes of illness by looking at the physical, mental, emotional, environmental and other factors. BodyTalk is Whole-Healthcare, which means addressing the whole-person and their whole-story, using the entire context of their life to improve their health.

The BodyTalk System Overview

BodyTalk is a revolutionary form of alternative healthcare that encompasses aspects of western medicine, eastern medicine and modern physics. BodyTalk is an astonishingly simple and effective form of therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be resynchronized so they can operate as nature intended. When a body is operating at its optimal level, each system, cell and atom is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, these lines of 

 communication can become compromised, which can lead to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental health.

How BodyTalk Works

BodyTalk can be used as a stand-alone system that can address many health problems or be seamlessly integrated into any healthcare system to increase its effectiveness and promote faster healing. During a BodyTalk session, the practitioner facilitates communication with the innate wisdom of the body by using neuromuscular biofeedback. The client’s own body wisdom leads the practitioner to locate the imbalances within the body that are a priority, or are not communicating correctly and are out of balance with the rest of the body. Next, the practitioner holds the areas that have been highlighted by the testing procedure and taps gently on the head, the sternum and the gut or enteric brain. By tapping on the head, the brain becomes aware of the communication issue. Tapping on the sternum, or heart, ensures that the new information is stored throughout the whole body. Tapping the gut/enteric brain, facilitates discernment of choosing how to optimally implement the appropriate solution. This process guarantees the mechanisms of the body can function and operate at optimal levels, which in turn accelerates the healing process, thus preventing future imbalances within those highlighted areas. The BodyTalk practitioner is teaching the body to return itself to balance.

Why BodyTalk is Effective

BodyTalk’s major assets are its simplicity, safety, and the speed of its results. Because the BodyTalk System allows the body’s own healing abilities to effect change, clients see long-lasting, ongoing improvements in health rather than short-term symptomatic relief. It is non-invasive, objective in application, and works effectively on humans, plants and animals. 

Background of the BodyTalk System

John was the principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for several years.
