About BodyTalk

    Can BodyTalk treat ________disease/issue?

    BodyTalk is based on the belief that the body knows how to heal itself but, like a computer, can get overloaded (through stress, bad eating habits, etc..) leading to malfunction. A BodyTalk practitioner offers no diagnosis or prescription just a “rewiring” session using muscle testing and light tapping on the head and sternum to re-establish channels of communication within the body. Then the body will start functioning optimally again.

    What is Mind-Body Medicine?

    Mind-Body medicine is a holistic approach to medicine that takes into account the effect of the mind on the physical process of the body, including the effects of the psychosocial stressors and conditioning (ref. http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/).

     

    Mind-Body medicine focuses on:

    • The interactions among the brain, the rest of the body, the mind, and the behavior.
    • The ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experimental, and behavioral factors can directly affect health.

    The National Center for Complementary and ALternative Medicine (NCCAM) is the component of the NIH tahat studies complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Within CAM, some examples of body-mind medicine practiv=ces are: meditation, hypnosis, tai chi, and yoga (ref. http://report.nih.gov/nihfactsheets/viewfactsheet.aspx??csid=102)

    Why is BodyTalk a Mind-Body Medicine?

    BodyTalk works with the influence of our psychology, mood, emotions and belief systems on our physical health.

    How many sessions do I need to feel better?

    There is no specific time-frame, some people might need more or less than others depending on what is going on inside their bodies. Typically, a person will need about 3 sessions to start noticing the effects.
