The BodyTalk practitioner will find specific areas within your energetic body where the balance and communications are interfering with the healing process. Everything that comes up is based on what your body-mind is ready to heal. This information is sourced directly from your innate wisdom. It could be communication imbalances between organs, body parts or cells, viruses, toxins, genetic factors, trapped emotions, ancestral components, your relationship to the environment or current life situation, or a traumatic memory from long ago. Everything that comes up is based on what your body is ready to heal. The practitioner lightly touches the highlighted areas, and then gently taps over the brain, the heart-brain, and the gut-brain. The tapping process brings these areas to your body’s attention, stores the information, and stimulates the healing process.
What Can I Expect?
Everyone is different, and your experience and response will be just as unique as you are. Commonly felt sensations during a BodyTalk session include feeling warm or cold, a tingling sensation, a general feeling of calmness and relaxation throughout the body, a sudden burst of emotion, and abdominal gurgling as energy is released from the diaphragm. Results after a session may be subtle, or dramatic, depending on the level of healing that your body is ready to handle. Some clients experience a major and immediate shift after a single BodyTalk session. Others report a steady overall improvement in all aspects of their health (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) over a period of time with regular sessions. Often the first few sessions are foundation setting, establishing a platform for the healing process to prepare you for a deeper level of healing.
On your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a Wellness Intake Form indicating a brief history, as well as your current physical and emotional well-being. This information is used to gather the intentions for what you would like to address, and as a measurement tool for your progress. You will also be asked to sign a standard consent form. Any information that you share will remain private.
How long do I wait between appointments?
At the end of the session, the practitioner asks your body if a subsequent session is indicated, and the optimal timing for the next session. The actual BodyTalk session is just the beginning of the healing process. Your body’s energy patterns will continue to shift over each 24-hour cycle in the days and weeks after your session, as your body works through the changes necessary to achieve your optimal physical, mental and emotional health.
How many sessions will I need?
The general recommendation for a specific condition is 3-6 sessions. Some chronic conditions may take longer. It depends on how long you have been experiencing the condition, and how many layers of factors have contributed to it. The symptoms are often the last to go because BodyTalk addresses root causes deep within the bodymind complex, not surface symptoms. Results are cumulative, so as each session builds upon the previous session, they become more powerful.
Do I have to do anything special after the session?
It is recommended that you take it easy after your session. Your body will be processing the new shifts in energy patterns, as it redirects resources to the area. Please drink plenty of water to help support your body’s healing process, as all biochemical reactions in the body require water.
Can BodyTalk be used for preventative maintenance?
BodyTalk is excellent for preventative health maintenance. By keeping the body in a balanced, stress-free state, you can establish lasting patterns of good health. The recommendation for regular maintenance is monthly, or every other month if that is not possible.
Symptoms are the tip of the iceberg. BodyTalk goes below the surface to the bulk of the iceberg, where the underlying causes of symptoms and illness exist.
Is BodyTalk safe for pregnant women, children, and babies?
BodyTalk is safe for everyone. The client’s innate wisdom will always know what is needed for optimum healing. Recently, BodyTalk has become increasingly popular with children and teenagers. It can help children deal with peer pressure, anxiety and bullying. Bodytalk also helps teens feel more confident and comfortable transitioning into young adults.
