What’s Going on There?
Hmmm, looks a little strange…that guy’s lying fully clothed on a massage table but the practitioner’s tapping her fingers on his head and then his chest, and the guy seems to be breathing in an exaggerated way. And now he looks as relaxed as someone who just had a massage, so what’s going on?
Yes, it might look a little odd at first, but that guy on the table is mighty relaxed and he’s clearly enjoying the session because he has a sweetly subtle smile forming at the corners of his mouth. And what’s that he just said to her? “I feel better!”
How BodyTalk Came to Be
BodyTalk is a health management system developed by Dr. John Veltheim in the 1990’s. For fifteen years, Veltheim ran a successful clinic in Brisbane, Australia and served as the Principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for several years. In 1998, he moved to Sarasota, Florida where he soon began teaching the BodyTalk System to what are now thousands of students, 2,000 of whom have been certified following an intense program of training involving numerous classes and written and practical exams.
A Blended System
BodyTalk merges eastern and western modalities, borrowing from Traditional Chinese Medicine, anatomy, and other teachings to help balance the bodymind. Specifically, the BodyTalk protocol (the “how to”) blends western medical expertise, the energy dynamics of acupuncture, osteopathic and chiropractic philosophy, the clinical findings of applied kinesiology, and the insights of modern physics and mathematics.
How it Works
This astonishingly simple and effective holistic therapy allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they operate as nature intended. It can be used as a stand alone system of healthcare to treat many chronic and acute conditions, or integrated seamlessly and safely with other practices. Equally effective in person and from a distance, BodyTalk truly upholds the Hippocratic Oath of “First, do no harm.” Using the body’s own innate wisdom to help bring relief from the bombardment of stressors we’re all under, BodyTalk re-establishes energetic circuits and efficient communication, helping the body to quickly recover.
The BodyTalk System continues to develop and change through independent scientific research. Its applications have now reached into areas such as sports performance, animal health, plant and crop improvement, and ecological repair. In addition, BodyTalk Access, a one-day program where anyone can learn five of the most commonly used techniques for daily health maintenance, is being taught across the world, especially in areas where access to healthcare is limited. This project is very near and dear to Dr. Veltheim’s heart and you can find out about this and other classes at the BodyTalk site. Classes are taught all over the world.
